In March 2020 a group of acupuncture practitioners are joining Hannah on a study trip around Japan learning about non-inserted needle technique and moxibustion methods. Please sign up here for more details.


Yamamori Sensei is a practitioner based in Nara, the ancient capital of Japan. He is completely blind and has been in practice for over 25 years. He will teach us non-inserted needle technique and his diagnostic methods which include abdominal diagnosis and channel palpation and the use of the extraordinary meridians.

Sasaki Sensei is a practitioner based in Tokyo, she will join us in Nagahama, the home town of moxa, to teach us the art of chinetskyu which is a type of non-scarring direct moxa. She specialises in the treatment of scars.

This study trip is inspired by my own journeys around Japan in 2017 and 2018 when I studied with different practitioners and immersed myself in the riches of Japanese culture. We will have time to explore each of the places we visit - Osaka, Nara, Nagahama and Kyoto. We will visit a moxa production company and an acupuncture museum. Both of these places help contextualise this medicine in global history, agriculture and religion.

This is a study trip for professional acupuncturists who have a sense of adventure.
