The Santa Fe Women’s Club

15  NCCAOM and TX 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 focus on the basic Hari treatment form and is appropriate for both beginners and senior students. After reviewing beginning diagnostic techniques, tonification and dispersion needling methods, this seminar will focus on expanding the Hari root treatment system, including the selection of harmony points, back points, branch/supportive treatments, and moxibustion techniques, culminating in practice of full treatments.  The foundational concepts behind ki therapy and introductory ki breathing and movement practices will also be discussed and practiced.
