Merlin Young - gentle and effective acupuncture for everyone


Sotai is a gentle manipulative technique developed by Dr Keizo Hashimoto and is designed to help balance the physical structure of the body.

Its application depends upon a theory which is common to several other body therapies: that "structure governs function", and that therefore an imbalance in structure can create functional or organic pathology, and that correcting the structural imbalance can help resolve the pathology.

In a sense, this idea of structural imbalance being intimately connected with disease is complementary to the idea of imbalance of qi - the idea that lies at the heart of traditional acupuncture theory.

Sotai diagnosis and treatment can wonderfully complement acupuncture..
