    What People Are Saying

    Great course!

    Candace J.- United States of America

    I love Kiiko Matsumoto's method of treatment and diagnosis. The results are immediate and the patient can see it for themselves inside the treatment room. I also like how she only stops treatment after she is completely satisfied with the results.

    Anna P.- United States of America

    I enjoyed it very much and found it helpful that she had assistants who could help in providing further clarification. Kiiko is brilliant, funny and very skilled at what she is doing. Thanks so much.

    Valerie P.- Canada

    I recommend this course in the highest of terms. The instruction via case study and the excellent education by the instructor (KM), her assistants, the helpful annotations in the slides, and questions from her live class made this an excellent learning experience. Thank you KM and team!

    Elizabeth M.- United States of America

    Excellent course with with a very focused approach with amazing clinical results.

    Olivia L.- United States

    This course was very helpful in bringing the value of abdominal palpation to the area of autoimmunity and infertility. The emphasis on the SI channel and organ gave it a core focus, but also showed the relationship to the whole. In that way, the course can be used for both fertility issues as well as general autoimmunity. The knowledge gained is immediately applicable.

    Ann D.- United States

    With passion, compassion and unwavering focus, Kiiko encourages the body to communicate, and she listens, intently. While creating opportunities for the body to renew and remake itself, she teaches not only her clients, but her students, as well, that such renewal is both possible and natural for the body.

    Cathy M.- United States

    Absolutely brilliant as always, backed up by such a strong ancient wisdom and clinical practice at the same time.

    Daniel W.- Australia

    This class was very helpful for me because the complaints of the patients are very similar to what I see in my practice. Often they are very sensitive and this style works very well for them.
