He has traveled to Japan to study with Ikeda sensei in his clinic on many occasions and attended at least 15 of Ikeda sensei’s workshops in Australia, UK and USA.
He has also presented over 70 Traditional Japanese Acupuncture workshops in New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Portugal, Czech Republic and USA.
Alan has been in practice for 35 years, establishing two busy Traditional Japanese Acupuncture practices at The Australian Centre for Natural Medicine on the Gold Coast est. 1996 and the Queensland Sports Medicine Centre in Brisbane est.1999.
This workshop will provide you with a great opportunity to learn some of the skills of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture and an introduction to the theory behind the practice based on the Classical Chinese texts and Ikeda sensei’s 23 textbooks.
There are now a number of old core TCM practitioners from New Zealand like myself who have taken on this gentle yet powerfully effective practice style after attending Alan’s workshops.
Extensive notes will be supplied on the weekend, as well as pre-study suggestions if desired, with recommendations of the various books available including those written by Ikeda Sensei. Practitioners can follow up their weekend introduction with further study available through an extensive range of DVD’s as well as the online learning site on www.worldacupuncture.com . Many former attendees of Alan’s workshops have also visited his clinic in Queensland and worked with him there watching and gaining hands on experience.
The Traditional Japanese needling approach is quite different to the modern TCM approach and often quite surprises practitioners in its effectiveness.
Many practitioners new to this style comment that there is a lot more focus on the different aspects of moxibustion and these will also be introduced.
The weekend program will
- Summarize and explain how to do root treatments
- Cover the basic “patterns” and how to diagnose them
- Explore abdominal palpation to help determine the pathology
- Learn how to load the fine 0.14 needles into tubes
- Practise the gentle art of this style of needling and learn to use
- Rice grain moxibustion (tonetskyu)
- Heat perception moxibustion (chinetskyu)
- Warm needle moxa (kyutoshin/ondan)
- How to apply these techniques in musculoskeletal problems as well internal conditions
We will be working on each other so it is recommended to bring loose comfortable clothing.
All needles, tubes, tray’s and moxa will be supplied and also available for sale at the end of the weekend.
