I am interested in Kiiko style and am wondering if it would be better to attend the Foundation course or Kiiko’s annual lecture first?
This is a very common question and the answer depends on your level of experience and your particular approach to learning. Kiiko’s classes are naturally more advanced and people often benefit more if they have taken the Foundation course first. However, for some people seeing a Master at work is truly inspiring and they prefer to get a feeling for the style that way.
How can learning this style help my practice?
Kiiko style offers unique perspectives and powerful methods for diagnosing and treating patients. The insights gained from learning this style can be easily incorporated into an existing practice, allowing the practitioner much greater versatility in the clinic.
Using Kiiko’s direct feedback method of diagnosis and treatment allows both patient and practitioner to feel confident in the energetic changes taking place. This also helps to empower the patient to become part of their own healing.
The use of gentler needle techniques makes it suitable for patients who may be reluctant to try acupuncture or who are sensitive to needles.
Learning Kiiko style will give the practitioner many new strings to their bow, which is so important when building a successful practice.
Is it a difficult style to learn?
Many people find this an enjoyable style to learn and it often helps them recapture their joy and fascination for acupuncture. People with a background in body-work and those who enjoy working closely with their patients normally take to this style very easily.
