KMS Seminars Hawaii offers ongoing classes in Kiiko Matsumoto Style acupuncture from introductory levels to clinical proficiency, for the benefit of acupuncturists and patients, in Hawaii and beyond.

Classes are limited in size and provide participants with the opportunity to gain keen palpation skills though ample supervised hands-on practice, as well as an in-depth, systemic understanding of the Kiiko Matsumoto Style of acupuncture.

I created this business after being exposed to Sensei Kiiko Matsumoto and her unique and beautiful style, and to Monika Kobylecka, an outstanding KMS teacher. I am grateful to continue my own studies of KMS acupuncture here in Hawaii, under Kiiko Sensei and Monika’s guidance.

I hope to see you in a future seminar in Hawaii.

"Kiiko Matsumoto Style has completely changed the way I practice Oriental Medicine and added confidence and joy to my practice. I am continually amazed at the detailed level of assessment and treatments that Kiiko and her teachers devised."

Kiiko Matsumoto Style Acupuncture is a palpation-based Japanese acupuncture style, which utilizes a systematic, easy-to-learn palpation method that provides instant feedback to the practitioner. This feedback is used to assess the patient’s presentation and monitor the effects of the treatment while the patient is still on the treatment table.

Kiiko Matsumoto is the founder of Kiiko Matsumoto Style of Acupuncture and considered to be a "living Master of Acupuncture". She is well known for her ability to integrate the work of important Japanese acupuncture masters such as Master Nagano, Master Kawai and Dr. Manaka into a coherent and clinically powerful system.
