Kikko Matsumoto, L. Ac.

**15 CEU Hours, approved by the California Acupuncture Board**

Japanese Kiiko-Style Acupuncture for Menopausal Symptoms & Gynecological Issues (Day 1)

Diabetes, Hepatitis, & Other Digestive Disturbances (Day 2)

In this two-day seminar, prominent Japanese acupuncturist Kiiko Matsumoto will provide lectures and demonstrations on effective acupuncture treatments for women dealing with menopausal symptoms and other gynecological problems (Day 1) and for people with diabetes, hepatitis, and other digestive disturbances (Day 2). She will discuss common palpatory findings on the abdomen and elsewhere, and corresponding acupuncture treatments for these findings and symptoms that typically produce tremendous clinical effects. Kiiko’s style of acupuncture is a synthesis of her own clinical findings and ideas with the approaches of many prominent Japanese acupuncturists. Through extensive and intensive clinical practice as well as her own readings and interpretations of the Chinese medical classics, Ms. Matsumoto has succeeded in integrating different approaches to create a coherent and highly effective style of her own that embodies ideas from the Chinese classics and modern Western medicine. The main characteristic of this style of acupuncture is the very close relationship between the various medical theories and the human body. Such a relationship is obtained by palpation and verification of acupuncture points and their clinical effectiveness before beginning a treatment.
