Often referred to as a trailblazer and seen as unorthodox in his theory and style, he mentored Tsuyoshi Shimamura in the last years of his life. In this program, Mr. Shimamura will share his knowledge and experience of this style that uniquely combines classical and modern insights. This introductory course is ideal for practitioners and students (no experience necessary) who feel called to work in a gentle manner that is informed both by classical and modern sources. The value of studying with a master practitioner like Shimamura sensei is that you can leap ahead years in your development in a short time! Practitioners will learn: • The foundation of Master Nagano’s treatment methods and strategies: Postnatal Qi & Prenatal Qi, Concepts of flow • How to use acupuncture points to diagnose and treat • Understand when to “treat” vs. “balance” the body in regards to musculoskeletal treatment • Enhanced understanding of how acupuncture points move/change & how to locate them • Review of muscle origins/insertions, including muscle membrane and inflammatory concepts & application to patient function • Enhanced palpation techniques, essential to detect changes in tissue and location of acupoints
