This workshop aims to shed light on abdominal palpation in the Kampo tradition through hands-on teaching. Herbalists and acupuncturists in particular will find the workshop of key interest but practitioners or students in any field of Oriental Medicine, including Shiatsu, are most welcome too. The workshop begins with a slide presentation followed by detailed palpatory practice and Nigel will round off the workshop with case-study analysis amongst attendees.
