Courses / Kiiko Style Intakes and Cases
What is Net of Knowledge?


Kiiko Matsumoto has developed a now famous style of acupuncture, KMS (Kiiko Matsumoto Style) based on Japanese principles of hara assessment. She has developed this art to master finding the acupuncture points that clearly release the patient's pain and/or symptoms. Using this abdominal information on the reflection of disease, and after stimulating potential acupuncture treatment points, KMS includes verifying that the abdominal (hara) reflection of disease has been reduced.

In this online course, Kiiko will introduce some of the important theories she uses to implement effective acupuncture resolution of old patterns of pain and disease. Case histories illustrate issues discussed.

Having studied and practiced many styles of Japanese acupuncture, I especially love Kiiko Matsumoto's classes. I think she is our living master of interpretation of the classics Su Wen, Ling Shu, etc., and their living practical application.Donna R.Canada

This class probably should have been my first Kiiko class because it clarified a lot. I feel like I can go back with a much more clear understanding of some of the treatment protocols. So interesting! Ashley C.United States of America
