Toyohari Acupuncture

Toyohari is a form of traditional East Asian medicine. It is a refined system of Japanese meridian therapy. It is different from most other forms of acupuncture in that it uses more delicate (mainly non-inserted) and specialized treatment methods, placing great emphasis on the use of pulse diagnosis and palpation skills. Its theoretical foundation is derived from the medical classics: Nei Jing, Su Wen, Ling Shu and primarily the Nan Jing.

The Toyohari Association has developed quite unique training and teaching methods that can accelerate the learning of skills that usually take many years of practice to develop. 

The Toyohari Association was founded by blind acupuncturists in 1959 in Japan, evolving out of earlier developments in meridian therapy in the 1930s and 1940s. Today it includes both sighted and blind practitioners. Toyohari is offered as a post-graduate training program in Japan, North America, Europe and Australasia. The curriculum is highly organized with an emphasis on hands-on clinical training and Kozato method study practice involving feedback to enhance skills. 

Graduates of the Toyohari curriculums are highly skilled in their pulse reading, tactile diagnostic and assessment skills, develop a greater sense of Qi sensitivity and learn a range of Non-stimulation methods specifically aimed at harmonizing and regulating the distribution of Qi (Vitality), enhancing the constitutional well-being of patients as well as relieving symptoms. 

Toyohari is a powerful therapeutic system for both preventing disease and maintaining health.
