The Taiji Yin Yang Balance is a Japanese Acupuncture technique for meridian balancing and structural alignment. In this video recording, Jake Fratkin will begin by sharing with us the basis of Taiji Yin Yang Balance, the pulse positions used in diagnosis for traditional Japanese meridian balancing, and give an introduction to Keiraku Chiryo.

Keiraku Chiryo describes a popular school of Japanese acupuncture that concentrates on the diagnosis and treatment of patterns of meridian imbalance. It is believed that treatment of the root imbalance should precede symptomatic treatment, and that doing so enhances efficacy and outcomes. Keiraku Chiryo developed in the 1930s as a revival of classical Nan Jing acupuncture. It’s needle technique is shallow with thin needles, gaining patient trust and comfort. Patterns are determined using specific pulse diagnosis, and points are chosen both by the effect on the pulse as well as point palpation.

Upon completion of this course, practitioners will:

  • Have a basic understanding of the Taiji Yin Yang Balance.
  • Review history of Keiraku Chiryo, Japanese Meridian Therapy.
  • Learn classical Nan Jing pulse diagnosis.
  • Learn diagnosis and treatment of basic patterns of root imbalance.
  • Exposure to modern computerized approaches to meridian imbalance.
