Miyawaki sensei will also introduce his 'Super 4' - a set of 4 points, supplemental to the traditional Extra Vessel system, that are useful in the treatment of psychosomatic and iatrogenic disorders common in our modern, busy lifestyles.

This program will start on Friday March 31 with a day of introduction which will be a benefit to both those who have studied with Miyawaki sensei before and those for whom this material is brand new.

Saturday, sensei will delve deeper into the theory and practice to prepare us for a day of supervised clinical practice on Sunday.

You do not need to have attended our previous workshop with Miyawaki Sensei in order to attend this Advanced training.

About the system:
Miyawaki sensei has developed a system of diagnosis and treatment of the 8 Extraordinary Vessels through abdominal palpation and the use of copper/zinc pellets. Due to his blindness, Mr. Miyawaki's ki sensitivity and palpation skills are highly refined and the knowledge and insight he shares are profoundly useful to the study and practice of acupuncture as a whole.

Miyawaki Sensei has developed a simple, methodical approach to E.V. treatment which can be immediately applied to any clinical practice. This workshop will transform your sensitivities, increase your awareness of the patient's entire Ki system, and give you the tools to bring balance back to the meridian system through the use of the Extraordinary Vessels.

Miyawaki sensei's abundant experience comes from his busy private practice in Japan where he has been implementing the use of this E.V. treatment for decades. He is also the author of the bestselling E.V. Treatment textbooks in Japan. He is a pillar in the Japanese Meridian Therapy world, a professor at Morinomiya University of Medical Sciences and brings great experience, heart, joy and sensitivity to his practice of the art of acupuncture.

The High Desert Hari Society is excited to offer this remarkable opportunity to study and implement Miyawaki Sensei’s unique system of Extra Vessel treatment in 3 day seminar!
