|Benefits of Kiiko Style Acupuncture
1) The palpatory diagnostic methods in this style of acupuncture offer the practitioner an instant
measure as to the effectiveness of their treatment. Both the acupuncturist and the patient will
have instant feedback as to how well the treatment is working because the same reflexes which
are used to determine the best treatment for a patient are also the gauge by which the treatment can
2) Kiiko Style acupuncture offers a totally new way to look at patients. It combines classical Chinese
medical principles with modern pathophysiology in a way that facilitates the understanding and brings
out the best in both.
3) Within the treatment methods used in Kiiko Style acupuncture, there is a technique suitable for any
patient. As a rule the needling methods are shallow and virtually painless, using the smallest
gauge needles. However, for the patient who needling is contraindicated, there are numerous non-
invasive techniques that are highly effective. The use of diodes, magnets, and other techniques give
the practitioner many options with which to treat the most difficult patient.
4) In many ways, Kiiko Style acupuncture takes the practice of acupuncture from the
ambiguous realm of theory into the direct experience of reality. There is no more wondering
week after week if the points you are using for their supposed actions and effects will work for the
diagnosis which seemed so plausible on paper. In this system “you treat what you feel”. If the reflex is
not present, or if specific treatment points do not significantly change the reflex quality, then some
other more viable treatment option must be found. Both the practitioner and the patient always have
some immediate indication as to the effectiveness of the treatment.
