Toyohari is a school of Japanese Meridian Therapy. It is a theoretically simple but technically sophisticated system of acupuncture differing from other acupuncture styles with an emphasis on palpation skills, pulse diagnosis and use of delicate needle techniques.
Evolving out of earlier developments in Meridian Therapy in the 1930's and 1940's in Tokyo, the Toyohari Association was founded by Kodo Fukushima in 1959 to support blind practitioners to study and practice. Since then, the Toyohari Association has refined unique diagnostic and treatment techniques, developed subtle and effective needle techniques, delivered a structured postgraduate educational programme and later introduced sighted students.
Ted Pearson: After qualifying in medicine Ted first came across acupuncture in 1979 and was so impressed, he and his family travelled to the UK where he completed a 3-year acupuncture training at the ICOM under Van Buren. He also studied with Kaptchuk, Maciocia, and Hammer. After meeting Steve Birch in 1991 he was captivated by Japanese Meridian therapy so joined the ToyoHari Association completing their basic and later teacher training courses. He regularly attends annual ToyoHari summer schools in Tokyo and Australasian meets with the visiting Japanese teachers.
