One of the great pleasures of practicing Japanese Acupuncture is the amazing diversity of application of this modality.
I never cease to be amazed by the clinical efficacy of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture/Meridian Therapy.
week Tessa, Zoe and Isla, grandmother, mother, granddaughter/daughter
attended clinic together to enable Zoe to receive treatment.
3 generations, Tessa,Isla and Zoe
Tessa was on hand to look after her granddaughter whilst her daughter received treatment.
During our preamble, Tessa revealed that her five month old granddaughter, Isla had been suffering from constipation for more than a week and that both mother and grandmother were becoming increasingly concerned about Isla’s condition.
a result of that conversation I volunteered to give Isla treatment
whilst her mother rested during the second phase of her treatment when
the back-shu points were in place.
Shonishin instruments, they look harsh but are applied with great gentleness and sensitivity
Using my hands and shonishin instruments as pictured I applied gentle vibration primarily along the gallbladder meridian from the buttocks to the ankle, secondarily along the stomach meridian on her leg. I also applied a very gentle kneading technique to her tiny buttocks.
To balance these very gentle dispersive techniques on the gallbladder and stomach Meridian's, I used the palm of my hand to warm the yin aspect of her lower leg.
Two days after the treatment I received this message from Tessa.
‘ Hi Alan, just to let you know that Isla has been to the loo several times since her visit!’
lies yet another reason why I love going to work, I consider it a great
privilege to practice Traditional Japanese Acupuncture/Meridian Therapy
and I remain extremely grateful to Masakazu Ikeda sensei for his
inspiration, commitment and guidance regarding the clinical diversity
and power of Traditional Acupuncture.
Hope all is well in your world.
