Being the Practitioner - Keys to Informed & Effective Treatment

with Edward Obaidey sensei

Attendees will absorb not only treatment techniques and strategies but will also come away with methods to develop their potential. 
  • We will  investigate the ancient classical methods of palpation including some basic Anma  techniques .
  • We will train our sensitivity to Ki  and  improve  our ability to  generate  Ki  at the same time.
  • Those methods help developing the sensitivities required for a more effective Root Treatment and Overall Treatment.

Through this transformational process we will become better practitioners and share improved health with our patients, family, and friends.
Classical references will include the Nan Jing ("The classic of difficulties") ,
Su Wen ("Inner classic of the Yellow Emperor")   and Ling Shu ("The Spiritual Pivot").

Master Class -  The Basic Concepts & Techniques of  TJM

with Masakazu Ikeda sensei & interpretation by Edward Obaidey sensei

Mastery  &  Basics
Ikeda Sensei is widely recognised  as the pre-eminent  practitioner in  Japan and a Master of both the Acupuncture and Herbal traditions. 
Echoing the Classic  title "Su Wen" ("Basic Questions"), his ability and art are based on a firm belief that:"Mastery consists of a thorough, advanced understanding of the basics." Mastery of the Basics (the  "fundamentals") is the true bad-rock on which our medicine and treatments stand. This leads to true understanding and reveals the complexities or 'Difficult  Issues' ("Nan Ching").

Ikeda sensei presents a unified theory that encompasses a wide healing spectrum.
The seemingly disparate strands of activity presented by TCM, Meridian Therapy, ToyoHari, Five Elements and herbal practitioners are all drawn together and understood as part of one unified body which Ikeda sensei has labeled TJM ("Traditional Japanese Medicine").

Finding Freedom: Freely Expressing the Principles of the Classics in Clinical Practice

with Edward Obaidey sensei

"The 'wheels' of Oriental medicine are to be found in the Classics. They are the general principles and, using them, the vehicle that we have to explore Oriental medicine. This was given to me by my teacher Masakazu Ikeda sensei. I would like to be able to pass this freedom on to you." (Edward Obaidey)
