Introduction to Hari-Style Meridian Therapy with Ehrland Truitt, DOM

September 19 and 20
Sante Fe, NM

The Santa Fe Women’s Club

15  NCCAOM continuing education credits

Hari is a ki-based form of Traditional Japanese Meridian Therapy (keiraku-chiryo).  Hari uses subtle diagnostic and needling techniques to balance ki flow in the body leading to subtle, yet powerful, changes in the patient’s system by bringing the primary channels into balance.

 This seminar will cover the fundamental concepts of Hari diagnosis and treatment, including:  pulse diagnosis, hara (abdominal) diagnosis, channel palpation, tonifying and dispersive needling techniques, point selection and location, and how to formulate a basic root treatment in the Hari system.  The foundational concepts behind ki therapy and introductory ki breathing and movement practices will also be discussed and practiced.  This seminar is an excellent opportunity for new students to receive an introduction to Hari-style treatment as well as a chance for senior students to review the essential components of this style of acupuncture.
