Toyohari Acupuncture



The Toy­o­hari school of Japan­ese acu­punc­ture is a power­ful, but a very del­ic­ate form of Ori­ental medi­cine which was inven­ted by blind Japan­ese acu­punc­tur­ists in the 1950s. Prac­ti­tion­ers are trained to devel­op their sense of touch, to detect subtle changes in the tex­ture, resi­li­ence, and tem­per­at­ure of the skin which are reflec­tions of spe­cific dys­func­tions in the body.

Toy­o­hari prac­ti­tion­ers use very fine acu­punc­ture needles made of Gold, Sil­ver or Stain­less Steel which are inser­ted on a very super­fi­cial level under the skin without caus­ing any pain.

In Japan, Toy­o­hari prac­ti­tion­ers are fam­ous for their high level of skills, very gentle tech­niques and the remark­able effic­acy of their treat­ments. Due to its gentle nature, this style of acu­punc­ture is par­tic­u­larly suit­able for chil­dren, eld­erly patients or any­one sens­it­ive to needles.

I had to under­take post-gradu­ate stud­ies in Aus­tralia, and Japan before being accep­ted as an accred­ited prac­ti­tioner by the Toy­o­hari Japan­ese Med­ical Asso­ci­ation.
