Japanische Akupunktur und Moxibustion und Manakas systematischer Ansatz zur Ausübung von Akupunktur

Japanese Acupuncture and Moxibustion and Manaka’s Systematic Approach to Practicing Acupuncture

Stephen Birch (engl./dt.)


english version below

Die Akupunktur in Japan hat sehr unterschiedlich Stile, mit vielen verschiedenen Denkrichtungen, spezialisierten Praktikern und hochspezialisierten Methoden. „Japanische Akupunktur“ zu studieren kann daher verwirrend sein. Glücklicherweise entwickelte Dr. Yoshio Manaka, einer der bekanntesten Praktiker Japans aus dem 20. Jahrhundert, ein hochstrukturiertes und einfach anzuwendendes Übungssystem das gute klinische Ergebnisse liefert. Dieses System, „Yin-Yang-Meridian-Balancing-Therapie“, integriert einzigartige von Manaka entwickelte Behandlungsmethoden mit einer Reihe spezialisierter und allgemeiner Behandlungstechniken, die von verschiedenen Schulen in Japan verwendet werden.

Dieses sechstägige Programm an zwei Wochenenden vermittelt Manakas systematische Vier-Schritte-Behandlung in einer Weise, dass die TeilnehmerInnen sie sofort nach dem ersten Wochenende nutzen können, vorausgesetzt, sie verfügen über die richtigen Instrumente.
Am 1. Wochenende wird in diese 4 Schritte eingeführt– Abdominale Palpationsdiagnose, „Moxa am Griff der Nadel“ an Rücken-shu-Punkten, Sotai-Übungen, Verwendung von „intradermal“Nadeln und „direktem okyu Moxa“.

Am 2. Wochenende werden eine Reihe weiterer IP-Behandlungen und die Grundlagen der Verwendung offener Punkte im System behandelt. Weitere Behandlungsschritte der zweiten und dritten Stufe werden ebenso behandelt wie zusätzliche Methoden der vierten Stufe, z. B. erweiterte Verwendung intradermaler Nadeln, Okyu-Moxa, Einführung der Verwendung von Press-Tack-Nadeln und Bluten lassen.

Die Beurteilung der Dosis und Prognose und die Anpassung der Behandlung entsprechend der Ergebnisse werden besprochen.
Der Workshop wird mit so viel praktischer Übung und Supervision wie möglich vermittelt, um den Teilnehmenden das Erlernen der Methoden und ihrer Anwendungen zu erleichtern.

Stephen Birch lebt und praktiziert in den Niederlanden. Seit siebenunddreißig Jahren praktiziert er japanische Akupunktur. Neben dem Studium bei Yoshio Manaka, mit dem er das Buch „Chasing the Dragon’s Tail“ (1995) schrieb, hat er auch bei anderen älteren Praktizierenden wie Toyohari – Lehrer Kodo Fukushima studiert.

English version

Acupuncture in Japan is quite diverse, with many different schools of thought, specialized practitioners, and general and highly specialized methods. To study „Japanese acupuncture“ can thus be confusing. Fortunately, Dr Yoshio Manaka, one of Japan’s best-known twentieth century practitioners, developed a highly structured and easily applied system of practice that produces good clinical results. This system, „Yin yang channel balancing therapy“, integrates unique treatment methods developed by Manaka with a range of specialized and general treatment techniques, commonly used by different schools in Japan.

This two-weekend, six-day program will teach Manaka’s basic systematic four-step treatment in such a way that participants will be able to use them immediately after the first weekend, provided they have the right tools. The second weekend will flesh out details for each of the four steps, expanding the treatment options and explore how to adjust the treatment approach to suit the needs of each patient. The workshop will be taught with as much hands-on practice with supervision as possible to help participants learn the methods and their applications.

The first three steps of Manaka’s system constitute his ‘root treatment’. First weekend: Step one will cover Manaka’s abdominal palpation diagnosis patterns for selection of extraordinary vessel treatments with the needling methods and use of his ion-pumping cords for these. For step two the „moxa on the handle of the needle“ technique at related back-shu points will be covered along with the „retained needle“ method to help further the goals of step two and to start to address symptoms. For step three a simple Sotai exercise will be covered that helps release general tension in the torso and legs. Step four addresses symptoms. For this step the use of the „intradermal“ and „okyu-direct moxa“ will be introduced. In most cases, steps 1, 2 and 4 are given during the same treatment session, step 3 being added when needed. The second weekend will cover a range of further IP treatments for step 1 with corresponding step 2 treatments and the basics of using open points in the system. Further step two and three treatment methods will be covered as will additional step four methods such as: expanding use of intradermal needles, okyu moxa, introducing the use of press-tack needles and bloodletting. Judging dose and prognosis and adjusting treatment according to what is found will be covered. This complete and systematic treatment is rooted in Manaka’s unique perspectives and theories on the nature of qi, the meridians, the extraordinary vessels, the body, musculature, evolution and development, described in his book Chasing the Dragon’s Tail. His theories are simple but highly sophisticated and guide the applications of the root treatment in an extraordinary manner.

The materials and methods taught in this workshop are described in great detail in books that Dr Birch co-authored: Hara Diagnosis; Japanese Acupuncture and especially Chasing the Dragon’s Tail.

Stephen Birch lives and practices in The Netherlands. He has been practicing Japanese acupuncture for thirty seven years. As well as studying with senior practitioner-teacher Yoshio Manaka, with whom he wrote the book ‘Chasing the Dragon’s Tail’ (1995), he has also studied with a number of other senior practitioners such as Toyohari – Meridian Therapy teachers Kodo Fukushima, Toshio Yanagishita, Akihiro Takai, Shozo Takahashi, Koryo Nakada, Shuho Taniuchi, Yutaka Shinoda and others. He is author of Shonishin – Japanese Pediatric Acupuncture (2011+2016) and has co-authored Hara Diagnosis: Reflections on the Sea (1988), Japanese Acupuncture (1998), Extraordinary Vessels (1986) and Understanding Acupuncture (1999), with a recent edited book on Qi and the Jingmai, ‘Restoring Order in Health and Chinese Medicine’ (2014).
He teaches workshops and programs on Japanese acupuncture methods in various locations around Europe including Holland, the UK, Germany, Spain, Portugal and also teaches in Australasia. He is the most senior Toyohari Meridian Therapy teacher outside Japan, helping run and teach a one-year program in Amsterdam, Holland.
