This is a full weekend course of Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) acupuncture. The lecture and presentation are based around the 9 Stars, which is the human, middle system in relation to the upper heavenly 10 Stems -5 Elements; and the lower earthly 12 branches-12 year cycles, 12 channels of acupuncture. These concepts are basic to Chinese thought and acupuncture. In this course, Kiiko treats 10 patients, focusing on the Hara and digestive syndromes. Crohn’s, Celiac, Colitis, Reflux, Stomach pain, GYN and GB disorders are included in the cases. In addition, each case includes the individual’s case history, thus have additional physical and emotional pain. KMS shows clear acupuncture protocols that reliably change the pain a patient presents with both in their chief complaint and in their abdominal (hara) pattern. The ability to use hara diagnosis as both an insight to the meridians that will be effective, and also as feedback to the successful resolution of pain is a hallmark expectation of KMS acupuncture.
