In May 7-10th 2020, Toyohari New Zealand is running the first of 5 weekends (May 7th-10th, June 4th-7th, June 25th-28th, August 13th-16th, September 10th-13th) in the foundations of Toyohari Japanese Acupuncture in Wellington (CBD Physio. Level 5, 139 Featherston St.)

Toyohari is an acupuncture style that was developed by blind practitioners from the Japanese Meridian Therapy School. It is based on Five Phase theory as described in the Chinese medical classics and concentrates on assessing the balance of Qi in the channels. Diagnosis is based on the Four Examinations with an emphasis on abdominal and meridian palpation and six position pulse assessment.

Constitutional or Root treatment focuses on re-balancing the Qi flows in the channels with very subtle needling techniques. Supportive and symptomatic treatments reinforce the root treatment using a variety of methods including moxa, extra-meridians, midday-midnight techniques, cupping and traditional shiraku.

The course is very hands-on, and learning is accelerated by the Kosato method using precise immediate feedback from the patient’s pulse and abdominal responses.

Both of us have been practising Toyohari now for years along with our normal physio treatments in private practice. It is a great adjunct and can be used for anyone with all sorts of issues. I use it a lot for treating the Royal NZ Ballet dancers who find it invaluable alongside traditional physio treatment.Both of us are very happy if you want to contact us to see what it's all about !
