Brief Intro:

Shakuju Therapy is an approach founded on Oriental philosophy and based on the Qi paradigm, whereby all illness is treated as Qi deviation on and stagnation. The ultimate cause of all illness is understood to be “fundamental cold” (Hie). Treatment consists of moving Qi in the body to eradicate “fundamental cold” (Hie). The abdomen and back regions are emphasized in Shakuju Therapy. Abnormal fi ndings in the abdomen (shaku and ju) are the primary sources of diagnostic information and treatment is performed on the back according to this diagnosis.

Kobayashi sensei was born in Tokyo, Japan. In 1969 he graduated from Toyo Acupuncture College, and in 1972 he graduated from Tokyo Kyoiku University with a degree in Acupuncture & Physical Therapy Teacher Training. He then opened Taishido Acupuncture Clinic in 1972 and began teaching at Kanto Acupuncture College (where he continues to teach today) in 1976. In 1980 Kobayashi Sensei developed Shakuju-kai, which is now one of the foremost acupuncture modalities in Japan.
