Alan Jansson returns to New Zealand  for his seventh workshop presentation here !

This practical orientated workshop will be held at the New Zealand School of Acupuncture in Epsom, Manukau Road.

Alan has studied under Ikeda Sensei for over 20 years and runs two very busy and successful practices in Queensland, one on the Gold Coast and the other in Brisbane. A number of students and practitioners have been up skilled by him and now work alongside Alan and all of them use the original traditional acupuncture techniques passed onto Alan by Ikeda Sensei.

The Queensland clinics see a whole range of conditions including fertility issues, sports injuries and internal complaints such as chronic fatigue and he only uses acupuncture and moxibustion  to obtain results.

The workshop is open to new practitioners who have not attended his workshops before as well as final year students of the New Zealand School of Acupuncture. First preference, however will go towards previous attendees of his workshops. 

Various aspects of the traditional needling and moxibustion techniques will be reviewed, demonstrated and then practised by each other at the workshop. 

Obtaining the diagnosis involves abdominal palpation and part of this workshop will look at this aspect of traditional Japanese acupuncture. The weekend teaching will enable one being able to feel for warmth present at different areas on the torso, being able to distinguish between “resistance to pressure” and “pain upon pressure” as well as identifying “focal distention” and “tightness“.

Putting an acupuncture treatment protocol together after collating all diagnostic information  provided by the signs and symptoms, pulse, palpation and observation will be demystified; so that one will be able to perform “root” treatments on the various patterns of Lung, Spleen, Liver and Kidney deficiency syndromes. 

On the Sunday, Alan will be treating a few patients specially selected for the workshop where he will go through the full diagnosis and explaining the treatment rationale. (Attendees of the seminar can contact me if they have any of their patients in mind to be treated at the seminar) 

Practitioners will be able to apply these extremely effective, primarily gentle treatment techniques in their clinic immediately.
