Stephen Brown's inspirational Japanese Acupuncture workshop is still fresh in my mind.
- Stephen Brown demonstrates the Art of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture to a Captive Audience
Walkabout Creek function center deep in the hills in pristine
eucalyptus forest country northwest of Brisbane, a magical location
discovered by eminent traditional acupuncturist/herbalist, East Asian
medicine educator and now successful workshop convener, Greg Bantick was a superb venue for this groundbreaking Japanese Acupuncture workshop.
In conjunction with John Thompson, veteran Brisbane
Traditional Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine practitioner, long time
convener and supporter of Japanese acupuncture workshops in Australia,
they persuaded the translator of Shudo Denmei’s beautiful books, Japanese Classical Acupuncture: Introduction to Meridian Therapy and Finding Effective Acupuncture Points
Mr. Stephen Brown presented a beautifully integrated Japanese
Acupuncture workshop, effectively communicating with and demonstrating
to a captivated audience including undergraduate students with
absolutely no experience of Traditional Japanese Acupuncture and
experienced practitioners of this highly refined East Asian medical art.
His eloquent treatments were absolute testimony to the fact that Stephen Brown walks the talk!
Using his vast shiatsu/bodywork experience in conjunction with
Traditional Japanese Acupuncture and Moxibustion skills honed by more
than 25 years of clinical practice, Stephen inspired us with
beautifully crafted treatment demonstrations.
His obvious Japanese Acupuncture and moxibustion skills were
complemented by extraordinary palpation skills, acute sensory
awareness, tactile finesse and energetic empathy.
