Takanori Maeda (Medical Trainer)
Being a trainer is a job where you are responsible for managing the body of another person.
Being a trainer means you interact as a person and through your treatments. It is a job built upon your skill and relationships of trust created by you as a person.
The place to learn these fundamentals is an acupuncture and moxibustion school.
Learning in a place of great tradition in a prime location with top-level instructors, the kind of a trainer you will become is up to you.
To receive gratitude and to be depended on, to support and inspire others, to be proud of your job – this is what it means to be a trainer.
