YNSA is a new Acupuncture method developed by the Japanese doctor of medicine Toshikatsu Yamamoto. It was first reported at the 1973 Ryodoraku Congress in Osaka.
The method consisted at that time of a Somatotope, or replica of the human body on the forehead with 5 Basic-Points. In all the years since, Dr. Yamamoto found many more Points and also other Somatotopes in other parts of the body.
He explored tiredless many of the willing patients that would give permission.
Dr Yamamoto is a very modest man that still says he only learned from his patients that showed him and told him patiently where and when it hurt and of course when they felt better after the treatment he gave them.
The treatment is very effective and well tolerated for many pain symptoms and disabilities after stroke or accidents , also a number of internal medical illnesses have shown good results. In the neurological medical field it is very valuable. The patient often feels improvement already with the first treatment.
YNSA has its own diagnostic system also developed by Dr. Yamamoto. Palpating the diagnostic Points for any tenderness or hardness, one can feel and decide what YNSA Point has to be treated.
Through this every YNSA Treatment is very individual and promising. The method is by now well known around the world. Dr Yamamoto teaches many doctors and Acupuncturists everywhere and also in his own hospital in Japan.
