Note on the Hari Training
This is an extraordinary opportunity to study "real Japanese acupuncture," a truly energetic and comprehensive system that does not rely on stimulating the nervous system through "de qi" sensation. Rather than strong stimulation, all the patient usually feels is profound. The theoretical aspects of Hari are easily mastered so most of the seminar time is used for hands on training and feedback. This is the key to really learning Hari and producing results in your clinic practice. The seminar format allows you to learn, have questions answered and develop skills while practicing with live feedback from instructor Mr. Kuwahara and members of the Hari society. In Addition: Students are invited to the Boston Hari Society toA practice sessions of Hari as a free tutorial class.
