“Te A Te Hari” Foundations Pack

The essential recorded seminar pack for learning the Foundations of
“Te A Te Hari”

This foundations pack is designed to provide the student with 2 of the most important offerings by Shimamura Sensei, at a discounted rate. Whether it is a student aspiring to learn Shimamura Sensei’s style of treatment, (which is based on Shimamura’s apprenticeship with Master Nagano, and coupled with his 20+ years of clinical experience), or for those who have studied with Shimamura Sensei in the past, wishing to review or solidify their foundations, this is the combo pack for you.
The 2 offerings in the pack allow the student to learn from 2 snapshots in Shimamura Sensei’s teaching career, which are 5 years apart (2014 and 2019). This allows one to see the common core of Shimamura’s treatment methods across time, as well as observing important methods that have taken precedence in the past, as well as those that have shown increased importance in recent years.

All methods, past, present, and future, in the river of this lineage, hold importance in this unique and effective Japanese acupuncture style, which has it’s beginnings in a Master who was as deep as an ocean…..Master Kiyoshi Nagano.

All teachings  in these offerings are by Tsuyoshi Shimamura Sensei, with Seishiro Hokazono as his dynamic interpreter and teaching assistant.

It is our suggestion to watch them in the order of Qi > Blood > Water (2019 Recording) first, then Mastery of Palpation (2014 Recording).

Online- Recorded in Sydney Australia, December 2014

365 Days Access + Course Quiz + Downloadable CPD Certificate upon completion

Presented by Tsuyoshi Shimamura + Seishiro Hokazono (Interpreter)- Japanese/English Recorded Seminar

Tsuyoshi Shimamura was Master Nagano’s closest apprentice during the final years of his life, living and working with him between 1997 and 2000.

During the years Mr Shimamura spent with Master Nagano, he came to understand his many ingenious clinical insights, and importantly he also came to appreciate Master Nagano’s character- the challenges he faced, and how he overcame them. During this One-day Recorded Seminar, Tsuyoshi Shimamura discussed the importance and cultivation of these personal qualities, and how they were reflected in the life and practice of Master Nagano. Mr Shimamura discussed specific stories from interactions with Master Nagano and his students that convey important messages, and also outlined Master Nagano’s most important message to future practitioners and students:

  • Stomach Qi- how to assess and strengthen it to benefit all patients.
  • Live-On-Stage Demonstrations, to observe Shimamura’s unique palpation and treatment methods, and the important concepts of “order of treatment.”
  • Specific teachings to assist in the art of diagnosis and palpation
  • An Explanation of the shared roots to how Master Acupuncturist Kiiko Matsumoto treats in comparison to Tsuyoshi Shimamura

A Q &A section was conducted during the seminar that assisted attendees with enquiries about the diagnostic approaches of live-demonstrations and Shimamura’s interpretations of Master Nagano’s intentions for specific point selections and combinations.

A post seminar Q & An interview was also conducted to learn more about Master Nagano through certain stories that Shimamura has chosen to share.

This recorded seminar was part of the Legacy of Master Nagano Seminar Series hosted in Sydney, Australia in December 2014.



 

This is the essential recorded seminar for those wishing to embark on the journey of learning to treat like Tsuyoshi Shimamura Sensei.

“Please remember to go back to “Stomach Qi”, when you find yourself confused and troubled. One should go back to Stomach Qi to create the beautiful acupuncture treatment, like a flowing river. This is an ideal treatment that Master Nagano taught me. “

 

Tsuyoshi Shimamura

 

Shimamura-Bio-Pic-300x200 “Te A Te Hari”  Foundations Pack

Tsuyoshi Shimamura

Tsuyoshi Shimamura obtained licensure as an Acupuncturist and Moxibustionist in Japan in 1995 after completing studies at Meiji Acupuncture and Moxibustion College. Shimamura was fortunate to undertake a live-in apprenticeship with Master Nagano during the final years of Master Nagano’s life, living and working with Master Nagano between 1997 and 2000 as his closest apprentice.
Shimamura not only inherited a vast amount of Nagano’s teachings, techniques, and theories but also gained an important insight into his character. Tsuyoshi Shimamura is a member of the Japan Acupuncturist Association, and has also published articles and DVDs for Ido-No-Nippon. Since 2006, Shimamura has been teaching seminars on the Acupuncture and diagnostic methods he learned during his time with Master Nagano. Shimamura has also taught a variety of hands-on manual techniques to Shiatsu practitioners, physical therapists, Bone-Setters and cosmetic therapists in Japan.

Mr. Shimamura currently develops what he has learned with Master Nagano personally during their time together, and what he has learned from Master Acupuncturist Kiiko Matsumoto, as in his heart there is no replacement for their teachings. As a result Mr. Shimamura focuses only on teaching openly and passionately to his students, that which he learned directly from Master Nagano and Kiiko Matsumoto, the most inspirational influences in Shimamura’s life. In recent years, Shimamura has impressed international students with his clarity and depth of understanding, his mindful presence, and his commitment to sharing Master Nagano’s legacy. Tsuyoshi Shimamura runs clinics in Hiroshima and Ooita, Japan, and holds a 1st Degree Black-Belt in Judo.
As is required by National Law, we disclose that Tsuyoshi Shimamura is not a registered health professional within Australia.

Nagano-Sensei-222x300 “Te A Te Hari”  Foundations Pack

Who was Master Nagano?

In post-war Japan, Master Acupuncturist Kiyoshi Nagano began a remarkable and fruitful investigation. Despite being blind, Nagano memorized classical Chinese medicine literature and developed a unique and ingenious theoretical and clinical approach that incorporated classical concepts and emergent insights from Western medicine. His ideas and methods did not follow an established group, which brought a certain stigma in Japanese acupuncture circles. Being mentally robust, he was proud of his ‘lone wolf’ status. Over the next half a century – using his extraordinary palpation and pulse diagnosis skills as a guide – he crafted ingenious acupuncture protocols for all types of conditions. He also became a mentor to two of the most important Japanese acupuncture teachers of our time: Master Acupuncturist Kiiko Matsumoto and Tsuyoshi Shimamura. Master Nagano passed away in 2003


Te-a-Te-Hari-300x225 “Te A Te Hari”  Foundations Pack

“Te A Te Hari”  
“Pour passion and heart into your hands.”

This unforgettable command is what Master Nagano told me as I started my three-year apprenticeship with him. I always wonder if I am properly executing his command as I needle myself every morning. One of Master Nagano’s patients told me: “Just having a touch of Sensei’s hands makes me feel better. His hands remind me of my mother.” I still remember his warm hands when I first received his handshake. I cannot do the same acupuncture treatment like Master Nagano. But, I feel the calling to pass his command to other fellow colleagues. I would like to bring in the passion as I diagnose patients with my hands. I pour my heart into every needle to help alleviate the suffering. If I can transmit this message via how I show my treatment style through seminars, I feel comfortable naming my style: Te A Te Hari. Te A Te means “laying a hand”, “treatment”, and “appropriate preparation or allowance”. Hari = Needle. I believe that actual treatment can start by touching a patient. Thus, having healing hands is very important to any practitioner. Please join me in a conversation of realizing my master’s words.
