In the process we will treat thoracic pain, rotator cuff syndromes, epicondylitis, carpal tunnel, cervicalgia, headaches and jaw pain.

It is a theoretically simple but technically sophisticated complete system of acupuncture. It is different from most other forms of acupuncture in that it uses a more delicate treatment method, placing great emphasis on the use of pulse diagnosis and palpation skills. The Toyohari Association has developed unique training and teaching methods that can accelerate the learning of skills that usually take many years of practice to develop.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Evolving out of earlier developments in Meridian Therapy in the 1930's and 1940's, the Toyohari Association was founded by Kodo Fukushima in 1959. He and his colleagues decided that they needed to establish a separate Keiraku Chiryo organization to focus on helping other blind practitioners to study and practice. Since that time, the Toyohari Association has developed along their own path, initiating several new treatment methods, refinements in diagnostic and treatment techniques, developing highly structured educational processes, and training sighted students.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The Australasian Branch has developed a training program that follows the Tokyo and European based program. The Australasian Branch of the Toyohari Association is pleased to announce a Toyohari training program to be held in Auckland. Graduation from the 120-hour (20 day) program entitles the graduate to join the Toyohari Association through one of its Australian or New Zealand branches and become a Registered Toyohari Practitioner (Japan).</p><p style="text-align: justify;">The principle purpose of the branches is to foster and improve clinical skills by providing ongoing study opportunities both in branch study groups and study sessions with senior instructors in Japan, Australasia, Europe and the USA. The Australasian Branch of the Toyohari Association has been established to provide the structure for these educational opportunities. Graduates will receive a certificate signed by the Australasian Branch and the Tokyo headquarters of the Association. Upon joining one of the branches, a certificate of registration will also be issued, which is renewed annually through the Australasian Branch.</p><p><a href="https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/assets/Uploads/Toyohari-Acupuncture-Foundation-Flyer.pdf" target="_blank">Click here &gt;</a> for more information.</p><p><a href="https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/assets/Uploads/Toyohari-Registration-Form-Foundation-Training.pdf" target="_blank">Click here &gt;</a> for the Registration Form</p> Fri, 25 Oct 2019 11:50:27 +1300 https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/for-osteopaths/cpd-and-events/australasian-toyohari-meridian-therapy-program-2020/?date=2020-03-07 Neural Manipulation : Neuromeningeal Manipulation (NM1) https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/for-osteopaths/cpd-and-events/neural-manipulation-neuromeningeal-manipulation-nm1-2/?date=2020-03-20 <h3><strong>Prerequisite – Open to health professionals</strong></h3><h3><strong>Course </strong><strong>cost - early bird rate $860 NZ close 11/2/20</strong></h3><p>This three day course is a specialised course focusing on the impact of trauma and whiplash. Neural Manipulation examines mechanical relationships between the cranium/spine hard frame to the dura and neural elements. It provides assessment and treatment approaches to address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body, and by accessing this relationship, resolves the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns.  Taught by Canadian Instructor Annabel MacKenzie.</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.barral.co.nz/courses" target="_blank">Click here &gt;</a> for more information and to register.</p> Wed, 18 Sep 2019 14:03:50 +1200 https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/for-osteopaths/cpd-and-events/neural-manipulation-neuromeningeal-manipulation-nm1-2/?date=2020-03-20 Neural Manipulation : Neuromeningeal Manipulation (NM2) https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/for-osteopaths/cpd-and-events/neural-manipulation-neuromeningeal-manipulation-nm2-2/?date=2020-03-24 <h3><strong><span>Prerequisite – NM1</span></strong></h3><h3><strong>Course cost - early bird rate $860 NZ closes 14/2/20</strong></h3><p style="text-align: justify;">This 3 day course explores evaluation and treatment techniques for peripheral nerves of the upper body.  A nerve only functions correctly when it is able to move feely within its surrounding structures. The modality of Neural Manipulation facilitates nerve conductivity and intraneural blood supply for local and systemic responsiveness. By understanding the detailed anatomy of the neural manipulation, one can clearly see the potential for pathological change when nerves are restricted.  Taught by Canadian Instructor Annabel MacKenzie.</p><p style="text-align: justify;"> </p><p><a href="https://www.barral.co.nz/courses" target="_blank">Click here &gt;</a> for more information and to register.</p> Wed, 18 Sep 2019 14:09:27 +1200 https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/for-osteopaths/cpd-and-events/neural-manipulation-neuromeningeal-manipulation-nm2-2/?date=2020-03-24 Micro Fascial Unwinding https://www.osteopathsnz.co.nz/for-osteopaths/cpd-and-events/micro-fascial-unwinding-2/?date=2020-04-02 <p class="Default" style="text-align: justify;">Micro Fascial Unwinding is a new approach to working with fascia and connects deeply on a subtle level.  The work invites practitioners to sense into the body, the tissues, restrictions, stored memories and body consciousness in an intimate and profound way.  </p><p class="Default" style="text-align: justify;">We will hold a space for healing by allowing the client to sink into a deep parasympathetic state.  Unlike myofascial release which works the fascia superficial to deep, ‘from the outside in’; micro fascial unwinding techniques will be working from the ‘inside out’, allowing the release of old trauma restrictions to unwind coping, protective and compensation patterns throughout the body. </p><p class="Default" style="text-align: justify;">Beth Beauchamp loves to share her passion of fascia and myofascial release.
