The practice and art of Hari style acupuncture is based in Traditional Japanese Meridian Therapy, which balances an individual's Ki in order to treat the root cause of disease while also treating the symptoms. Various methods of utilizing Ki, such as pulse diagnosis, non-invasive needle techniques, and Ki diagnosis, are used by the trained practitioner.Japanese Hari style of Acupuncture is theoretically based on the ancient Chinese Medical Classics, such as the Su Wen, Ling Shu, and Nan Jing, although this course's teacher, Takayuki Koei Kuwahara, has developed his own understanding and methodology over the past 4 decades. Students will learn to diagnosis based on Meridian relationships, the five phases, yin and yang theory, the four inspections, and emphasizes that the practitioner develop a keen sense of Ki. The patient's pulse is taken at the start, during, and after the treatment in order to gain an accurate understanding of how the Ki was shifted. This helps train the student's perception of pulse and determines the best techniques to use in treating an individual's symptoms. The treatment focuses on redirecting the Ki's distribution throughout the meridians in accordance with the primary deficiency pattern. The practitioner often uses a gentle needle technique, which is usually non-insertive, using fine gold or silver needles. Students are trained to decipher the location and severity of a disease in order to use the correct technique to disperse the "evil" Ki. Students will be able to sharpen their Ki perception through practical and didactic learning. This intriguing and enlightening four-part seminar begins in May 2016. Each portion of the seminar is 3 days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) in the months of May, June, July and August. There are separate pricing for professionals and current acupuncture students as well as a special price point for those who have previously taken this course from Kuwahara.
