Webinar Description

Master Kiiko Matsumoto, LAc. will present and demonstrate advanced theory and techniques in the pathology and treatment of diseases that relate directly or indirectly to the function of the vagus nerve. Special focus will be given to palpatory diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s and other diseases involving inflammation of the central nervous system. The Vagus nerve functions as the key parasympathetic conductor of most of the body’s internal organs (Zang Fu), but also as the key structural connection between the Zang fu and the brain. Master Matsumoto will teach a variety of specific treatments to stimulate the vagus nerve to balance the autonomic nervous system, influence the brain, and regulate digestion, immunity, mood and cardiovascular function.

The course will examine the particular muscular and nervous structures (vagus and accessory cranial nerves) of the neck from a modern biomedical perspective while Master Matsumoto also unpacks deep analysis of a variety of the ancient Chinese characters of key acupuncture point names and Chinese medical theory. Following lecture, demonstrations will be made in real time with live patients and Kiiko Matsumoto will demonstrate how to find the best treatment options for each patient for a variety of conditions and how to organize the various approaches taught into a complete acupuncture treatment, with Dr. Joseph Audette and other staff facilitating the educational process with questions and live chat in zoom.
