A complete introduction to Kiiko Matsumoto style Japanese acupuncture covering both theory and practice. This style of acupuncture is both interactive and practical. It uses palpation of the abdomen and direct diagnostic feedback to immediately assess energetic changes taking place. It can be used on its own or incorporated into an existing TCM or Five Element style practice.
No previous experience of Japanese acupuncture is necessary.
This course will be taught in a workshop style to provide the maximum opportunity to gain the practical experience essential to this unique style of acupuncture. By the end of the two days participants should feel confident to apply the knowledge and skills they have learnt directly in clinic.
