This audio/visual course by master acupuncturist Kiiko Matsumoto presents a detailed approach to common, severe digestive problems. It includes a presentation of the 9 Star system, which is a foundational part of Chinese Medical thought. In Chinese Medical theory, the 5 Elements/10 Stems are considered related to the heavenly level. The 12 branches, 12 meridians, 12 yearly cycles are considered related to earthly level. The middle level between these is the 9 stars, the human level, between heaven and earth.
Each section of the nine star map relates to one of the five elements, and 3 of the 9 star areas relate to Earth. This class discusses these positions of the earth element on the abdomen, the direct relationship to the small intestine, and many digestive disorders that reflect on the abdomen (hara) with this exact pattern of pressure pain.Theory and didactic information is given on how to approach digestive disorders that may clearly have the diagonal 9 Star pattern of earth/small intestine pressure pain on the abdomen (hara), A base treatment of left SI 3, right Bl 62 is worked up, with multiple variations. Emotional and physical trauma accompany many painful digestive conditions, and is addressed using acupuncture points over related brain pain/memory areas.
