(TJM) Traditional Japanese Medicine Theory
Japanese Acupuncture - Chinese Clock - Circadian Treatments - TJM Theory
Japanese circadian style acupuncture treatments utilize the activity of meridians as indicated by the Chinese clock. As with much of Japanese acupuncture, the treatments are focused on using the least amount of needles and stimulation while still having a strong effect. Activating points on meridians when their activity is heightened is one of many ways to accomplish this goal.
Note: Japanese acupuncture uses sophisticated theories to determine the treatment points and methods used for each patient. The ideas within our presentation are one of many possible ways to apply these theories and treatment protocols. Before using Japanese acupuncture you should be well versed in the theories behind these protocols and trained in the many techniques unique to this style of acupuncture.
The following pages contain various treatment methods based on the meridian activity times.
