About Paul Movsessian

After graduation Paul moved from Australia to the USA to further his studies. His interest was in the Japanese style of acupuncture where he trained under Stephen Birch and Junko Ida, learning the treatment techniques of Dr. Manaka and Meridian Therapy. He also studied with Kiiko Matsumoto, and was exposed to a wide variety of styles taught in Japan. From 1989 until 1996 he maintained a busy practice, lectured and undertook constant postgraduate studies. His training included the study of Dr. Shen's pulse methods under Dr. Leon Hammer, Sôtai and Shiatsu from Kikuko Zutrau Miyazaki, as well as exposure to many visiting meridian therapists. He has continued his training in the Toyohari system of Meridian Therapy in Japan and Europe under the guidance of such teachers as Akihiro Takai, Shuho Taniuchi, Koryo Nakada, Shozo Takahashi, and Toshio Yanagishita the current President of Japan's Toyohari Association. Paul was encouraged by Stephen Birch, that on his return to Australia he should continue teaching the material he so generously gave, hoping that Japanese style acupuncture could begin to receive exposure and acceptance there. Since his return, Paul has been managing a successful clinic and lecturing extensively to introduce the Japanese styles to practitioners in Australia. He has established a postgraduate certificate course in Dr. Manaka's protocols, in collaboration with Stephen Birch and Junko Ida, as well as setting up the Toyohari model and teaching it throughout Australia and NZ. He is currently the President of the Australasian Toyohari Branch, a Registered Academic Practitioner and a qualified teacher with the Toyo Hari Association of Japan.
