Course description

In Chinese medicine, we know the stomach plays a very important role in generating post natal qi for the body. Less talked about, but no less significant is the role of the small intestine, which modern research has shown to be the root of the immune system, as well as being the site for nutrient absorption. A weakness in either of these two organs can therefore lead to a wide range of symptoms throughout the body. In this class we will cover digestive system imbalances, including discussion of the entire digestive tract from mouth to anus.

We will discuss both Classical Chinese theories and modern Western anatomy to better understand the relationship of acupuncture points on the channels and the digestive organs themselves. Demonstrations of palpatory diagnosis will be done to help students learn to better diagnose the root of their patient’s complaint, and determine to origins of disorder. Learn the relationship between food intolerances and allergies, colon irritabile (IBS), chronic mineral deficiencies (including anemias), gas, bloating, hormonal imbalances, depression, muscle pain and more. Often very simple combinations of points that target the digestive tract can help support patients with a myriad of complex symptoms- learn these and other simple strategies to effectively treat patients.

Other topics Kiiko Matsumoto will be discussing:
hydrochloric acid insufficiency, indigestion, heart burn, dry mouth, ulcers (any problems with mucus membranes), Canker sores. These can be due to nutritional problems, or a constitutional weakness, or medications/chemotherapy

What can you expect from this workshop?
Kiiko is exceptionally practical in her lessons: She demonstrates on a patients her own treatment strategies as carried out in her clinic in Boston. This is not a theoretical workshop, the focus is on real clinical practice. You will go home with treatment concepts that you can apply directly in your own clinic.

Why Japanese Acupuncture?
In post-war Japan, acupuncturists like Kiyoshi Nagano began remarkable and fruitful investigations. Despite his blindness, Nagano memorized Chinese canonical literature and supplemented his knowledge with Western medicine. Over the course of half a century, he used his exceptional tactile skills to create sophisticated acupuncture protocols for chronic, stress-induced illnesses.

Patients: 3-4 external patients per day can be presented. The symptoms should fit to the topic of this seminar. Please contact the school office for an appointment. A short case history preferably in English (in German possible) should be sent to the school office 10 days before the beginning of the seminar. This will then be distributed to all participants in an adequate form.
