(TJM) Traditional Japanese Medicine Theory

Five Phase Treatments - Diagnosis and Treatment - Step One - TJM Theory

Step one of the Five Phase Treatment Protocol is to choose and treat the primary sho (deficiency/imbalance). The side chosen for initial needling should generally be done based on a preponderance of symptoms on one side - treating the "healthier" side, or, lacking that, based on gender - the left side for men and the right side for women.

For treatment use #1 or smaller needles, retaining them for approximately 10 minutes.
