On April 17, 2017 we were fortunate to see a live demonstration of the Seino-System approach by Takamasa Tsurusaki. There were many opportunities for explanations and Q & A, and those who attended were able to see the almost magical results that a short treatment with just a few points could produce.
The patient suffered from Ankylosis Spondylitis, a debilitating musculoskeletal condition that conventional medicine is unable to treat. Takamasa reviewed the various methods of diagnosis used to arrive at a treatment plan, which included pulse diagnosis and palpation of the abdomen, back and lower legs. He explained the basis for deciding whether to treat with needles or moxibustion, and demonstrated a non-insertion needling technique as well as the traditional Japanese method of Okyu moxa with controlling heat. The patient showed improved mobility in the cervical vertebrae after just 20 minutes of treatment!
Thanks to all who took part. We hope to make similar evening education workshops a regular event at the Clinic. If you wish to take part in future student and professional training events at the Clinic, you can request to join The Centre For Japanese Acupuncture Facebook group.
