100 Diseases from Wind

Course Overview

Kiiko Matsumoto presents highlights on Du 16 from the Su Wen and Ling Shu, integrated into KMS (Kiiko Matsumoto Style) acupuncture. KMS acupuncture addresses each patient’s constitution/root, and addresses their chief complaint. Every patient is palpated, and feedback is used to select points that release that individual’s pain. The first half of the course focuses on the usage of Du 16 and KMS acupuncture for resolution of back pain. The second half of the course is on the usage of Du 16 and KMS acupuncture for resolution of shoulder pain. Acupuncture points all over the body are discussed, tested for their effects, and used to resolve diverse complaints.

Course Objectives

  • To teach and review ideas based on the most classical acupuncture literature about cause and treatment of diseases. This includes the concept of Wind being the cause of 100 diseases, and Du16 being emphasized for treatment of Wind diseases.
