    Introduction to Toyohari


    Zoe Brenner, L.Ac., Dip.Ac., Dipl.CH

    Toyohari is a form of traditional East Asian medicine. It is a refined system of Japanese meridian therapy. It is different from most other forms of acupuncture in that it uses delicate needle techniques (often non-inserted) and specialized treatment methods, placing great emphasis on the use of pulse diagnosis and palpation skills. The diagnosis and treatment focuses on feeling the movement of the Qi directly. Its theoretical foundation is derived from the medical classics: Nei Jing Su Wen and Ling Shu and primarily the Nan Jing.

    In this workshop, we will cover:

    Some background of Toyohari Meridian Therapy, an overview of basic 5 Phase relationship theory within this system, an overview of diagnosis including pulse diagnosis techniques, demonstration of some special contact needling techniques and complete treatment demonstration. NCCAOM- 7PDAs.
