The purpose of this treatise is to investigate intensively the history, principle and issuse of "Sotaiho" for the first time. The main results are as follows. 1) Comparing "Sotaiho" with "Seitaijutsu", the author proved the former to be obviously influenced by the latter, early in the Showa era. Moreover, Keizo Hashimoto, originator of "Sotaiho" puts more emphasis on natural and systematic movements of bodies, with a flavour of Oriental medicine and thoughts. 2) "Sotaiho" mainly consists of a variety of slow and "rebalancing" movements of bodies for comfortable feelings. 3) "Sotaiho" will be useful in medical treatment and school or community health education, etc. 4) The effectiveness and limitations of "Sotaiho" must be scientifically studied in actual cases hereafter
