What is Kodaishin Meridian Therapy?
Kodaishin Therapy is an ancient system of acupuncture that uses non-insertive and specialized needle techniques that are unique to this style. The treatment is very gentle and non-invasive. It is a theoretically simple but technically sophisticated health care system. Japanese medical tradition has a dynamic history dating back to the 6th century AD and earlier. This practice has roots in the tradition of blind acupuncturists in ancient Japan, who were valued for their greater sensitivity to the energetic systems, and learned to heal effectively without inserting needles into the body. Kodaishin 古代鍼 means “ancient acupuncture”. Kodaishin is different from most modern forms of acupuncture in that it uses a non-invasive treatment method, and places greater emphasis on the eight extraordinary meridians. It is a powerful transformational healing system for body, mind and spirit. Call to book a session.
Meridian Activation Without Penetration
People often mistakenly believe that Oriental medicine means penetrating the skin with needles, but this is not necessarily true. There are many ways to stimulate meridian points. Ancient Japanese tradition uses precious metal needles energetically, without touching the body. In Kodaishin Meridian Therapy gold and silver needles are used without touching the skin directly. As a matter of policy, Srijana does not do not do anything to penetrate the skin.
Kodaishin Does Not Diagnose Disease
Rather than looking for disease, Kodaishin looks for the areas of greatest sensitivity and openness in your health. Srijana listens very carefully to the body using her professional knowledge and intuitive skills, to determine the highest priority to address, and stimulate a shift on the deepest level. This is much like finding a fulcrum of balance in the moment. When she finds a priority she will tell you what it is. This partnering allows you to fully participate in the shifts and take control of your healing.
Kodaishin Uses Pure Gold and Silver Needles
The material with which a needle is made is of great importance. Different metals produce different energetic effects in the body. Modern disposable acupuncture needles are made of stainless steel. More specific and refined treatments can be made with gold, silver, platinum and molybdenum. Golden needles have an energetic potential of +0.285 on the hydrogen scale and produce toning effects in body acupuncture. Gold is precious, and its power and energy can be felt. Gold needles are for reinforcing or tonifying points when Qi or Yang is deficient. Gold is warm and dilates the tissues and relaxes the injured area, allowing repair to be a little faster. When a treatment is done with gold needles it gives anti-inflammatory action upon organs connected with points on the body. Silver has a smaller potential of 0.048 and can be used for calming effects. Silver relieves or localizes inflammation. Stainless steel needles have a neutral effect.
Kodaishin Works with the Extraordinary Meridians
The eight extraordinary meridians are pathways of Qi, or energy which run deep within our bodies, and supply the twelve organ meridians with Qi and blood. They are the first meridians to appear in an embryo, and they give rise to the twelve organ meridians. The extraordinary meridians are related to our genetic heritage and our spiritual destiny. By stimulating the points on the hands and feet associated with each meridian pairing on opposite sides, the practitioner duplicates the most basic energy flow in the body called the “microcosmic orbit”. In Oriental medicine this is likened to a figure 8 or the infinity symbol. By stimulating the extraordinary meridians with gold or silver needles, deep shifts can be made which dissolve very old patterns of behavior or misunderstanding in a person, which prevent them from moving forward with their life.
Non-Invasive Therapy Benefits All Conditions
Kodaishin Meridian Therapy is based on the study of the rhythms of life, the energies which underlie and are at the very foundation of the body functions. Rather than looking for what is wrong and trying to fix it, Kodaishin provides a true listener and gentle support. This cooperative, sacred collaboration between practitioner and client allows the body to release blockages and find balance without invasive techniques. Since this form of acupuncture has no penetration with the needles, the channel flow is regulated by holding the needle over the acupuncture point. After locating the point very precisely, the Qi is sent through the acupuncturist to balance the yin and yang of the channels. This technique is well suited for children and the needle shy, as it does not penetrate the skin. Kodaishin is a complete system of healing, and can benefit any ailment or condition including cancer, hypertension, fibromyalgia, depression, diabetes, obesity, back pain, and ADHD. It works on the deepest subtle level promoting meridian flow and clarity in the body-mind.
Kodaishin Meridian Therapy can be done in a personal consultation with Srijana. It may be included as a part of another single session, when it is a priority for your healing.
