Benjamin was one of those foreign students who came to Japan to observed Japanese practitioners in their clinics.
At that time he was still studying in Australia and about to write a doctoral thesis on the characteristics of Japanese acupuncture. And I was his “sponsor” – officially signed a paper declaring me responsible for his conduct and study in Japan. At the end of his “thesis” (= quite a magnificent 450-page work!) it says, anybody having complaints about the study should contact me. I really hope, that never happens.
Admittedly, I have not read it all yet, but I can assure you, the work gives you plenty of invaluable information and insights pertaining to acupuncture in Japan.
