Introduction to Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) Abdominal Palpation and Treatment Strategies for GYN Patterns
June 1 @ 9:00 am - June 2 @ 5:00 pm
Abdominal palpation is an important diagnostic tool for identifying individual patterns in our patients’ conditions and delivering successful treatments. In this hands-on seminar, Monika Kobylecka will introduce participants to Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) acupuncture which has been praised for its ease of use and clinical effectiveness.
Through lecture, demonstration and small group break out session with one-on-one demonstrations, Monika will share strategies and techniques that will allow students to begin incorporating this powerful style of acupuncture into their own practice right away.
You will learn how to identify some of the most common abdominal reflex patterns associated with menstrual irregularities, dysmenorrhea, ovarian cysts, fibroids and more. Strategies for successfully clearing these reflexes will be discussed, demonstrated and students will get a chance to practice these techniques in small groups with supervision.
Whether you’re brand new to KMS acupuncture or wish to strengthen your palpation skills, you can expect to walk away from this class with some skills that will prove to be helpful on your very first day back in clinic.
(Please note, that the class emphasizes palpation and techniques for finding reflexes and treatment points using your hands. We will not be needling in the break-out sessions.)
