Trauma, Neuromuscular Skeletal Disorders, & Irritable Bowel:

Japanese Kiiko-Style Acupuncture with Kiiko Matsumoto, L.Ac.

July 18 - 19, 2009
Saturday & Sunday
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

On Saturday and Sunday, Ms. Matsumoto will discuss and demonstrate her latest findings using Japanese acupuncture to treat emotional and physical trauma, neuromuscular skeletal disorders & irritable bowel. Trauma, left untreated, can leave longlasting effects, which acupuncture can help. Among neuromusuclar skeletal disorders, she will discuss and demonstrate treatments for whiplash injuries, strains, sprains, breaks, neuropathy, vascular compression, herniated discs, fulcrum imbalances, and scoliosis.

Kiiko’s style of acupuncture is a synthesis of her own clinical findings and ideas with the approaches of many prominent Japanese acupuncturists. Through extensive clinical practice as well as her own interpretations of Chinese medical classics, Ms. Matsumoto has succeeded in integrating different approaches to create a coherent and highly effective style of her own that embodies ideas from the Chinese classics and modern Western medicine. The main characteristic of this style of acupuncture is the verification of acupuncture points and their clinical effectiveness before beginning a treatment by use of palpatory techniques.
