Toyohari is a form of ‘Keiraku Chiryo’ - Japanese Meridian Therapy, it was first developed by very sensitive blind practitioners such as Kodo Fukushima and Katsuyuki Kozato over fifty years ago, and then refined through extensive practice and study. Extremely fine needling techniques, touch and pulse diagnosis techniques are used in this system of practice, with a heavy emphasis on training to feel and discriminate qi directly. Pulse diagnosis is made very practical in this system and is strongly emphasized. This introduction will give an overview of the whole system, including a discussion of the historical origins of then needling techniques. The lecturer will then perform treatment demonstrations to illustrate the methods of diagnosis and treatment and the methods of direct feedback that have been instrumental in the development of this treatment system. Perhaps, like the lecturer you will also find that Toyohari is more like what you thought acupuncture was before you went to acupuncture school.
Organized by the Australasian Branch of the Toyohari Association.
