Course description

This is one of the rare occasions to train palpation diagnosis under direct supervision of Kiiko Matsumoto in small groups.

Kiiko’s feedback-based system comprises abdominal palpation, palpation of relevant body parts and acupuncture points. All the findings are brought together to select a suitable treatment strategy. This also includes a succinct interpretation of the (oral) feedbacks from patients and what acupuncture points to select.

Kiiko Matsumoto will demonstrate her methods and explain how it precisely leads to the selection of acupuncture points as well as the corresponding needle technique (needle orientation, depth, etc.).

This seminar covers:

  • Haradiagnose of the reflex zones of the Zangfu, which is combined with pulse diagnosis findings as well as a confirmation of the diagnosis by palpation feedback of body areas and acupuncture points.
  • An introduction to the treatment of the root cause according to Kiiko Matsumoto and the thinking process leading to her acupuncture style
  • An overview of the feedback system by which the points to be treated are selected, and how further palpation confirms the effectiveness of the points before needling or proceeding with further diagnostics

The number of participants is limited to 21, so that all participants can practice under the supervision of Kiiko and her assistant. This is one of the best opportunities for those practitioners, who want to make the transition from mere theoretical knowledge of Kiiko’s style to using it with confidence in everyday practice.

We welcome beginners, who have attended one of Kiiko’s courses in the past, but who have found her style overwhelmingly different from their current clinical practice to introduce palpation diagnosis effectively into their daily clinic routine.

The course language is English with a consecutive translation into German. The script is in English.
