What is the Mukaino Method?
The Mukaino Method was developed by Dr. Mukaino in Fukuoka Japan. It's a simple diagnostic and treatment protocol that provides the practitioner with a comprehensive overview of the patient’s body, quickly illuminating areas of pain, imbalance, and restriction by assessing the quality of movement with the potential of immediately resolving them.
Acupuncture points are tested by repeating the identified impaired movements while selected points are gently stimulated along the affected meridians to see whether they improver the ranges of movement.
By focusing on movement (including pain and range of motion), practitioners develop a common language that can be understood across medical disciplines but most importantly of all is implicitly understood by the patient.
