Tankioka Daishi Hari Treatment
Kuwahara demonstrating Taishi needle meridian stroking

An ideal workshop for practitioners looking to work in a gentle manner with children using non-insertive needle techniques. In this Hands-On-Hari workshop, we spend time learning Japanese meridian therapy that provides whole-body treatments for all ages enhanced with Daishi Shonihari techniques. 

We learn and practice the basic clinical principles of the Hari style of Meridian therapy combined with Daishi Shonihari – pediatric style acupuncture in the tradition of the Tanioka Family lineage.  

In this approach to pediatric acupuncture diagnosis is done through Sho-Akashi (five phases pattern) determination with focus on Pulse and Hara (Abdominal) diagnosis.  

The Shonihari treatment taught in this class will include instruction in and demonstration of the use of non-insertive tools in the tradition of Kodo Fukushima Sensei’s Meridian therapy and Masanori Tanioka sensei’s Daishi Hari style of pediatric treatments. 


– The Teishin – one of the classic 9 Needles – as taught by Kodo Fukushima Sensei

– The Taishi-hari needle – a specialized tool developed and used by Masanori Tanioka sensei as the primary tool in the Daishi style of pediatric meridian treatment.

– The Jaku-San needle – also developed and used by Tanioka sensei both for the treatment of stagnation.

While the tools are designed for pediatric patients, they can each be used on anyone and are well suited for sensitive and/or very deficient patients of all ages. 

These new and advanced skills can be immediately applied into your clinical practice. 

– How to “pal-up” with children for a quick response.
– How to recognize & treat common pediatric complaints
– Learn unique and rapid diagnostic and palpation techniques 
– Including five phase pulse reading, and feedback. 
– Meridian/point palpation, and abdominal diagnosis.
– Extraordinary vessel and Chinese clock treatment 
– Magnet and gold press balls for home or clinical treatment
– Treatment adjustment by age, constitution and condition.
