Keiraku Chiryo - Japanese Meridian Therapy: a hands-on practical introduction
In its’ conception acupuncture was said to be a form of therapy to help regulate the qi of the patient. The descriptions of acupuncture in the classical texts of the Neijing and Nanjing gave various details of how to do this. Keiraku Chiryo - Japanese Meridian Therapy, is a traditional form of acupuncture that began in the late 1930s. It is an acupuncture system based on traditional ideas found in the Suwen, Lingshu and Nanjing. While using minimal theory the system focuses on finding one of several primary patterns based on practical interpretations from the Nanjing to begin treatment.  The diagnosis focuses on palpation of the abdomen and pulses and is guided by traditional descriptions of qi and the meridians and five-phase and yin yang thinking. The Suwen and Lingshu inform ideas about how to tonify and drain, guided by Nanjing refinements. Through experience a systematic step-by step treatment approach has been developed. The needling is VERY gentle and seeks to restore balance in the body so that the patient can start to heal – the goal of the root treatment.  This workshop will be a hands-on introduction to Keiraku Chiryo - Japanese Meridian Therapy. The lecturer will briefly review the theory and background and then explain how to identify the primary pattern for treatment. After explaining about how the pulse and abdominal diagnoses are done and the patterns identified, there will be hands on practice of this. The lecturer will then explain about how very delicate needling (0.12mm needles inserted 0.5-3mm with no ‘deqi’ sensations) is applied for tonification. There will then be a practice session of needling and watching how the body responds to the needling. Next the lecturer will focus on the selection of which of the primary patterns to treat for each patient and how to treat them with the fine needling techniques. There will be a practice session of this, including dealing with point location and assessing treatment effects. In the last part of the workshop the lecturer will demonstrate the step-by step approach and explain about Toyohari, an advanced form of Meridian Therapy, which can be learned in a complete 20-day program of study.
