What is Toyohari?
Toyohari, or East Asian Needle Therapy, is a modern form of Japanese meridian therapy, based on classical Chinese Medicine. It is a very gentle, yet effective treatment that is suitable for a wide range of health conditions. Ongoing research by senior Toyohari practitioners ensures that our system of East Asian medicine addresses modern health issues and aims to continually improve treatment methods and outcomes.
What is the ABTA?
The Australasian Branch of the Toyohari Association is the Australasian division of the worldwide Toyohari Association, which is based in Japan. In Australasia, local branches exist, each of which comes under the ABTA umbrella. The ABTA is not a professional association, but organises the basic Toyohari training program and provides continuing education for it's members. Membership is open to anyone who has graduated from the basic Toyohari program.
How does it work?
The aim of a Toyohari treatment is to balance the energies (qi, or vital energy, and blood) in the meridians, so that the entire body can be nourished and balanced. This supports the body’s self-healing abilities.
