Japanese Abdominal Diagnosis: Fukushin

Instructor: Kumiko Shirai

Japanese abdominal diagnosis or Fukushin is the diagnostic art developed in medieval Japan  (Edo period 1603-1867 CE) based on the classical writings by Zhang Zhongjing. Careful  inspection of the Shanghan Zabing Lun reveals countless references to abdominal conditions that  could only have been diagnosed by actual palpation of the abdomen. The skill however never  fully developed in China but flourished in Japan. Throughout history, two major schools and  types of abdominal diagnosis developed; Nanjing and Shanghan Lun schools, which respectively  diagnose the abdomen in service of either acupuncture or meridian treatment, and herbal  treatment.
