Japanese Acupuncture treatment for severe respiratory condition.

Japanese Acupuncture treatment for severe respiratory condition.

Welcome to the latest Japanese acupuncture video update brought to you by http://worldacupuncture.com .

I’m writing to you as I sit at my desk at Rainbow Bay having immersed myself in the ocean for a good 2 1/2 hours this morning, riding pristine waves whilst enjoying the a radiantly beautiful blue Sunday morning and the camaraderie of my fellow surfers.

Upon my return to land I recorded a video response to Chris’s request for more detail on the Japanese acupuncture treatment protocols that I used to help my patient Rob recover from a debilitating respiratory condition that had resisted all forms of previous treatment, including prescription corticosteroids.

To learn more about the treatment please watch the following video.

I also recently videoed taped an interview with Rob as he discussed the benefits he felt/feels as a result of Japanese acupuncture treatment for his severely debilitating respiratory condition.

I trust this interview helps you to understand why I am so passionate about Going Global with Japanese Acupuncture’.

To hear what Rob has to say about Japanese acupuncture, click play.

I hope that by watching these videos you are inspired to learn more about how Traditional Japanese Acupuncture/Meridian therapy might benefit your acupuncture practice.

Upon my return I will publish the remaining parts of the intriguing interview series with Adam Gries Lic.Ac. of the Awakenings Health is Institute in Solana Beach, San Diego.

In the meantime I hope all goes well for you and yours.

Kind regards,


The LATEST VIDEO UPDATES for members of http://worldacupuncture.com follow, hope you enjoy.

Big thanks to Andrew for keeping his eye on the ball whilst dealing with significant adversity and to Adam for keeping the marbles in our bag.

Hi World Acupuncturists!

We’re back with the rest of our new series on pulse diagnosis. Enjoy!

VIDEO: Pulse Diagnosis: Exploring Its Integration Into The Treatment Sequence, Part 3; Posted 21/1/11


Following the application of a Spleen Deficiency root treatment in Part 2 of this series, Alan explains how the pulse has changed.

If the pattern involves yin deficiency, blood stasis or yang excess, it is necessary to check the pulse after you have applied tonification*. Sometimes the tonification component of the root treatment addresses all major imbalances in the pulse – cools heat, moves blood stasis etc. Sometimes, though, heat or stagnation must be addressed directly by shunting. Checking the pulse after tonification will tell you what problems require further treatment. In this instance, while Andrew’s pulse has improved in many respects, heat in the lung and large intestine meridians requires shunting. Alan addresses both meridians with one point: LI-4.

There is also an indepth explanation of shunting deficient heat – what happens energetically, and what it feels like on the pulse.

*Very, very, very rarely is shunting appropriate when treating yang deficiency, and dispersion never.

Following the shunt on LI-4 in part 3, Andrew’s pulse indicates that most major imbalances have been corrected. However, there is still some heat in the bladder meridian, which Alan addresses by shunting BL-62. Alan discusses some issues specific to shunting the Taiyang meridian and also looks at other strategies for dealing with heat there. Finally, Alan addresses the frequently debated problem of guitar music.

All the Best,

Adam, Andrew and Alan

  1. I’m looking for alternative cure for my mother. She’s got asthma. And she is just tired of those medical equipment and medicine. She’s intrigued by acupuncture. But the problem is that she’s afraid of the needles. “Do they hurt?” she asked me. I don’t know since I have never tried this technique.

    • Japanese Acupuncture should be completely painless, however some of the other styles can be uncomfortable.
      Apologies for the late reply I have been deep in the mountains of New Zealand way out of internet range.
      All the Best,

  2. Great videos and interview, Japanese Acupuncture has major benefits and should be more evident in practices across the world. These videos are really useful testimonials.

  3. Thank you Marissa, glad that you find the blog and videos helpful.
    All the Best,

  4. This is great news for people with respiratory conditions. Often the medications they are given come with many side effects. It is wonderful that these alternative therapies are available for people who don’t respond to traditional treatment. Acupuncture use for asthma was given a grade C by Natural Standard’s evidence grading system at naturalstandard.com. Hopefully, with more testimonials and research, it will move up to a grade A.

    • Thank you for your positive comment Melissa. I concur and my clinical experience supports the potential of astute acupuncture treatment in assisting those suffering from insidious respiratory conditions such as experienced by Rob.
      All the Best,
