Explorations in Meridian Therapy
with Stephen Brown

“Stephen is one of the finest exponents of traditional Japanese acupuncture
and allied arts. He is a gifted teacher and guide. Take every opportunity to
study with him.” Greg Bantick

Meridian Therapy is the dominant form of traditional acupuncture in Japan. This system is based on the Nanjing (Classic of Difficulties) and the five phases relies on refined pulse taking and palpation skills combined with subtle needling techniques.

This workshop will introduce the theory, palpation techniques, and five phases treatment strategies of Meridian Therapy.

Shudo Denmei, one of the leaders of Meridian Therapy in Japan, has a refined and simplified approach.

Stephen Brown, the leading exponent of the Shudo style, will teach the refinements in Meridian Therapy. In addition, Stephen will also present some of Shudo Demei’s symptomatic strategies using super‐rotation insertion, moxibustion, and intradermal needles.

This workshop will provide ample time for hands‐on practice for a working understanding of Meridian Therapy.

Friday participants will learn:
Stephen will share some of his personal clinical experience with an emphasis on self‐care,
including Sotai and qi gong. He will demonstrate how to use these in treatments.

Weekend participants will learn:
‐an introduction to the history of Meridian Therapy and its stylistic variations
‐pulse diagnosis for diagnosis and treatment.
