Kiiko Matsumoto has developed a now famous style of acupuncture, KMS (Kiiko Matsumoto Style) based on Japanese principles of hara assessment. She has developed this art to master finding the acupuncture points that clearly release the patient's pain and/or symptoms. Using this abdominal information on the reflection of disease, and after stimulating potential acupuncture treatment points, KMS includes verifying that the abdominal (hara) reflection of disease has been reduced.
In this online course, Kiiko will introduce some of the important theories she uses to implement effective acupuncture resolution of old patterns of pain and disease. Case histories illustrate issues discussed.
