COMING SOON! The first book about Manaka Systems Acupuncture since Chasing the Dragon’s Tail!

Did you find Dragon a bit too comprehensive? So did we!

We’ve written a new practical guide to performing Manaka’s four-step protocol, closely matching what is taught at Level 1 weekends internationally. It’s called Manaka Made Simple, and it’s designed and written by five experienced teachers of Manaka System Acupuncture: Oran Kivity, with Stephen Birch, Marian Fixler, Brenda Loew and Paul Movsessian. This will be an invaluable aid to practising MSA.

Intended to fill a gap in the Japanese acupuncture literature, this book is the first of a series presenting the idea-dense material of Chasing the Dragon’s Tail in a learner-centred format. The goal is to help you grasp the essentials of Manaka’s approach without being overwhelmed by the richness and scope of his research.

Manaka’s protocol used a four-step protocol. If you’d like expert guidance on how to implement it, here’s your first step—sign up on the form below!
