Webinar Description

In this course, Master Kiiko Matsumoto will present advanced treatments with live lecture and treatments on the theory and uses of various San Jiao and Gallbladder points over the temporal bone in the posterior auricular zone. Certain of these points, while seldom used in contemporary styles of acupuncture, however, have provocative ancient names such as SJ -18 chi mai “Spasm Vessel” and SJ-19 lu xi “Skull’s Breath” that suggest important functions in ancient times. Sensei Matsumoto will lead participants through an analysis of various temporal points  and their uses from both a theoretical and practical standpoint for a wide variety of neurological and psychological issues, from both a biomedical and anatomical understanding, with connections to modern craniosacral work, and a deep look at the various aspects of the ancient Chinese characters for each point to uncover their various clinical applications and demonstrate their uses live on the treatment table.

Further discussion will include elaboration of investigations discussed in previous courses on Stomach 9, “the carotid body/sinus reflex” and how to integrate this treatment with those discussed above to diagnose and treat oxygenation issues throughout the body, which manifest with a wide variety of asthmatic, hypertensive, neurological and psychological symptoms.
