For whom is this workshop?
Certified acupuncturists, tuina therapists and shiatsu therapists that want to work in a palpation-based way. Some background in Kiiko Matsumoto’s Style of acupuncture is recommended, but not mandatory.
What about the subject, Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat?
In 2017, Kiiko Matsumoto presented a wonderful workshop on the subject of infertility at Qing-Bai. This year, she wants to shift the attention from the lower belly to “above the neck”, meaning eye problems, ear, nose and throat problems, and possibly headaches and tinnitus.
Many people come to the acupuncture clinic with chronic sinusitis, rhinitis, or “low immunity”. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs generally are able to treat these problems well. However, what if the patient doesn’t respond well to the treatment? How much root and how much branch treatment should you use? How to determine if the patient is progressing? Kiiko Matsumoto’s palpation-based approach helps many people with addressing these questions, regardless of the the style of acupuncture that you use.
Eye problems, like glaucoma, cataract and macular degeneration, can be debilitating for the patients, and the options in Modern Industrial Medicine are limited. With the ageing population, more and more people are looking into traditional treatment options for their eye problems.
Tinnitus and headaches can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life, to the point that some patients see no other option than to end their life. Any treatment that can help, is to be utilized.
Kiiko Matsumoto’s approach, as always, is to treat the patients that are presented to her. She doesn’t use fixed protocols, but approaches each patient individually, to achieve maximum results. Each patient is different. Thus is the power and beauty of the work of a master acupuncturist.
Diseases of Eyes, Ears, Nose and Throat, isn’t that too much for a two-day workshop?
We could teach about these problems for weeks. However, Kiiko Matsumoto sensei wants to give all participants value for their money, by putting as much knowledge as she can in the workshop.
What will you be able to do after this workshop?
Kiiko is extraordinary practical in her teaching: she demonstrates on real, live patients what she does in her own clinic in Boston. This is not a theoretical workshop, the focus is on demonstrating real clinical practice. Like many Japanese teachers, Kiiko demands full attention from her students, to follow what she is doing. The reward, however, is that you will go home with treatments that you can apply in your own clinic, and verify that they work.
Why this workshop?
Kiiko’s work is getting more and more attention in Europe. Her seminars in London and Germany are very popular. We are happy to be part of this growing interest in palpation-based acupuncture. Students that are specialising in Kiiko Matsumoto’s style will want to attend as many seminars as they can to deepen their knowledge. Students that use Kiiko Matsumoto’s approach to strengthen their own approach, are inspired by Kiiko’s practicality, and challenged to get the same results using other methods.
Can you give me some examples of how Kiiko Matsumoto teaches?
So is this a course in “Japanese acupuncture”?
Yes and no. Kiiko Matsumoto studied and graduated in Japan, and her main influences are from Japanese teachers. However, she has an extraordinary knowledge of the classics, and has the ability to demonstrate her interpretation of Su Wen, Ling Shu and Nan Jing directly on the patient.
Who is the teacher?
Presenter Kiiko Matsumoto is considered by many a "living Master of Acupuncture". A world-renowned teacher and author, she has integrated the works of important Japanese acupuncture masters such as Master Nagano, Master Kawai and Dr. Manaka into a coherent and clinically powerful system. Kiiko Matsumoto presents at seminars worldwide and runs a private practice in Newton Highlands, MA.
