Japanese Acupuncture in the Himalayas


Hope all is well in your world and prosperity in all it’s forms is your constant companion.

I received this email from our traveling colleague, Jenni and thought the sentiments expressed within well worth posting ?

Hope you enjoy, I sure did!

Kind regards,


Not the Himalayas, South Island, New Zealand

Heya Alan,

You just made my day!
I got your mail, went to your sight and started reading everything from chronic fatigue syndrome to pre and post natal care, getting all buzzed up on my chair at the internet cafe in the beautiful hill town called the McCloudganj, the present home of Dalai Lama by the foothills of the Himalayas.

As I was getting excited of everything I was reading and just feeling the Ki circulating in me by the mere thought of how different treatments work, I started feeling this familiar nervous tickle inside me which is caused by the understanding I always have while learning more about acupuncture, of how much more there is for me to learn and how every day at a clinic and with a patient is like a new day again (which makes the work all the more pleasurable to wake up to also).

As much as I enjoy the feeling and understand how I’m only at the beginning of my journey, I do get frustrated when I feel insecure with what I know so far when by the side of a client and only being able to do the ‘best’ i know and can how to, when at the same time within I know, believe and somehow instinctively understand (even though the topic is so much more vast then I am) the immense possibilities of traditional acupuncture.

So inspired by this frustrated tickle I clicked the link ‘from practitioners perspective’ on your site and found a familiar name with a familiar face and got a taste of my fifteen minutes of fame.

The post was cool and you inspired me yet again with a funniest way when a little kick was what I actually needed. What I didn’t mention before is how valuable your newsletters and site has turned out to be for me when travelling and working in the places I have been working and often being alone with what I do, missing the companionship and guidance of other acupuncturists.

So a big thanks to you again as well as the wonderful possibilities the world wide web provides us!

A freshly inspired mountain air hello from me again, Have a Great Day!
