Radio Kidnappers and Heiko Lade interview Andrew Fraser, an Acupuncture New Zealand ACC accredited member who specializes in classical Japanese acupuncture and practices in Auckland and Hamilton.
Acupuncture in Japan was historically always reserved for blind people who were able to have heightened sensory abilities to feel acupuncture points and take pulses more accurately.
Over the centuries, acupuncture has changed, been improved upon and evolved in China but also in Japan.
Come and join us with Andrew Fraser on Radio Kidnappers on 1431 AM or 104.7 FM to find out more about classical Japanese acupuncture.
Classical Japanese acupuncture incorporates a lot of body palpation such as on the abdomen and feeling along the acupuncture meridians. Andrew will explain how this is used to help diagnose and then determine which points may be used.
Moxibustion, the application of a heated herb mugwort near the surface of the acupuncture point, is used extensively in classical Japanese acupuncture and Andrew will outline some of these techniques.
For those people who would rather have a very subtle and gentle yet powerful acupuncture needle technique, then this show is for you to find out about classical Japanese acupuncture.
