Koei Kurahara, Lic. AC (Acupuncture, Medical Kiko) is Dinky’s acupuncture- Master. Mr. Kurahara is trained in Japanese style acupuncture. The simple difference between Chinese and Japanese acupuncture is the use of shorter needles, which are less intrusive on the body. Dinky has never liked needles, but was willing to try this form of therapy.

At first Dinky went to Mr. Kurahara every few days, then once a week, then once every two weeks. Dinky started feeling a little different after each visit, explaining to Mr. Kuahara at each visit how he felt and what was happening. At one point, Dinky was suffering from noise that sounded like a Race car driving around his head. His speech was loud. Over a short period of time this car drove away, and his hearing, which was affecting his speech volume came back and his volume returned to normal. At first listening to people talk on the telephone was impossible for more than a few seconds, but this too came back.

Once while just starting acupuncture, Dinky had a massage that did not use the therapeutic techniques that can complement acupuncture. Afterwards his speech was slurred again and his speech was loud. At the next visit to Mr. Kurahara, Mr. K worked long and hard to get Dinky back to where he was before the massage. Mr. Kurahara said one practitioner can upset another. It’s true in Western Medicine and it’s true in Eastern Medicine. Stick to one therapy that is working for you became Dinky’s resolve.

Mr. Kurahara is also a teacher, an expert in many fields related to Culia Ki energy and the Japanese healing arts. His expertise includes Acupuncture, Aikido, Shiatsu, Oriental Philosophies and Shinkiko. His reputation has attracted many students who wish to intern with him.

One such person is Barry "Kumataro" Brownstein (M.Ac.,Lic.Ac.,Dipl.Ac. (NCCA) L.M.P. Barry’s exposure to Chinese thought began at age 13. At 16 he began the dedicated study of temple-style Tai Chi. At 19, he spent the first of four retreats living in the "Cave of the 18 Lohans", a legendary Zen-Buddhist monastery in the Taiwan Jungle. He paralleled Eastern thought with a strong science background receiving a B.S. in Chemistry and a MS in Electrical Engineering in Microelectronics & Vacuum Technology. In 1992, he began study in Oriental Medicine. He graduated with a Diploma in Massage and Masters degree in Acupuncture. He has since studied with many great teachers from China, and Japan. Barry is ecstatic to be an apprentice of the lead Toyo Hari association practitioner in the USA, Mr. Kurahara.
