Shakuju Therapy is the lifelong work and study of Japanese master Kobayashi Shoji.  He asks,webassets/MasterKobayashi.jpg

“What is our purpose in treating patients?  An obvious answer would be to eliminate suffering.  But from the practitioners’ perspective the purpose of treatment goes beyond the elimination of suffering.  The wider perspective is to improve the condition of the patient in order to prevent falling back into a disease state.”

Shakuju Therapy is a method that employs treatment based on evaluation of the pulse and the condition of the abdomen, where the superficial (ju) and deep (shaku) accumulation of qi and blood gather.  The root treatment is performed on the back. Using the 69th Difficult Issue of the Nan Jing as a foundation, and by stimulating the back shu points, symptoms on the abdomen are positively changed or eliminated.
