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 focuses on the fundamentals of pulse diagnosis and the special needle techniques used in Hari. By the end of the seminar students should feel comfortable determining primary diagnostic pattern (sho), developing a root treatment protocol, and applying brach treatments to address local problems.
All too often pulse diagnosis can become an “adjective” problem; what words should we use to describe the feeling under our fingers? In this class we will practice truly feeling the pulse, rather than just describing the qualities. What is a positive pulse change from treatment? What kind of pulse quality are we looking for at the end of treatment as the patient returns to the world? The pulse is an amazing diagnostic tool that can become overly complex. In this seminar we will try to simplify the process so anyone can learn how to use the pulse to enhance their treatment results, regardless of treatment style.
