Toyohari is a style of acupuncture that focuses on direct perception and treatment of the Qi.

The training:

  • assists the student in feeling the effect of the needle technique immediately as one is needling and to be able to decide the dose and the effectiveness.
  • is quite unique. Our teaching methods accelerate the training process. You can advance quickly by learning skills that usually take many years of practice to develop.
