Hara Diagnosis –is a unique Japanese medical health diagnosis. Japanese word ‘hara’ in English means abdomen. Human abdomen contains few reflex zones that are vital for health. Those zones are connected with particular organs, systems and brain through the nervous system. By applying a pressure on the reflex area both acupuncturist and patient know if that reflex zone has a problem. Acupuncturist fingers feel tightness, density or knots while the patient feels tightness, discomfort or pain. Besides the abdomen this diagnosis includes palpation of the neck, head, face, back, spinal column and limbs to confirm and clarify the findings.
Whatever in contemporary medicine will take days or weeks to diagnose health mishap, with hara diagnosis it takes minutes to identify the problem and assist acupuncturist with a correct vision of what is going on in the body in order to properly address all the causes and dysfunctions immediately. Within few minutes of hara diagnosis, acupuncturist knows what organs, and systems are out of order and which acupoints should be needled. During this procedure, the patients are able to witness the improvement while simply laying down on the treatment table. They feel how the pain in reflex zone or painful area simply disappears instantly as acupuncture needles have been inserted.
