Non-needle techniques for acupuncturists and body workers

Speaker(s): John has been a student of Kiiko Mastumoto sensei for 15 years, in the Netherlands and abroad. He applies the method in his own clinical practice on a daily basis: palpation and critical thinking, alongside the Neijing and the Nanjing, are the basis of his clinic. Before studying acupuncture, John held a black belt in Bujinkan Budo Taijitsu and studied and practised shiatsu and qi gong for about 10 years. After graduating from acupuncture school, and first meeting David Euler and then Kiiko Matsumoto sensei, he has so far spent over 1000 hours with Kiiko sensei.
