Course Overview

Kiiko Matsumoto Style acupuncture (KMS) has become well established as a successful acupuncture system. This approach reaches a confirmation using touch and feel to find pressure pain related to root causes of health disorders, and then checks for the successful resolution of those pressure pains. Kiiko will show how the fight or fight response is related to many chronic complaints, including chronic pain, digestive disorders, respiratory problems, and more. The course will show how to confirm this connection with touch and feel charateristic, and use appropriate treatment with acupuncture. Evaluation and resolution of pressure pain on the hara, the SCM muscle, the rhomboids, and the soft tissue above the trochanter is included in ANS diagnosis and treatment. This recorded course features 9 different live cases, with clear close up camera work and written text.

Course Objectives

  • To familiarize acupuncturists with KMS acupuncture so that they may expand their usage of palpation feedback techniques on their patients.
  • To teach the importance of correcting Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) imbalance in order for patients to fully recover from health disorders which have not fully healed because of sympathetic dominance.
  • To show attendants how to apply the broader concepts of ANS imbalance into successful applications of acupuncture on complex individual health complaints.

Absolutely brilliant and a must for any serious practitioner.
Daniel W. - Australia
Amazing! I have learned so much. I have already begun applying techniques I have learned in these two courses on patients in my clinic and we are all just floored by the results across the board. I have found Kiiko's methods are breathing new life into progress on patients where I feel like their progress has stalled a bit. Could not recommend her more!
