Lieber Herr Blasejewicz,
seit Oktober lebe ich als mitgereiste Partnerin eines versetzen Mannes in Tokyo. Da ich meinen Beruf als Augenärztin hier nicht ausuben kann, möchte ich die drei Jahre in Tokyo nutzen, eine Akupunkturausbildung zu starten.Ihre Adresse habe ich zufällig im Internet gefunden. Könnten Sie mir eventuell helfen Adressen von Schulen oder Krankenhäusern zu bekommen, die auf Englisch ausbilden? Lehren Sie selbst?
Dear Thomas,
I am a new acupuncture practitioner (just finished in May'03 with school), and I would like to study Acupuncture in Japan. I am wondering if you know of any programs that fascilitate westerners into study in Japan.
Sehr geehrter Herr Blasejewicz,
ich möchte mich Ihnen kurz vorstellen; mein Name ist XXXXXXXX und ich bin derzeit Studentin der Psychologie an der Universität Trier, werde jedoch Ende des Sommersemesters mein Diplom erhalten.Aus privaten Grunden wird sich höchstwahrscheinlich an mein Studium ein ca. einjähriger Aufenthalt in Japan anschliesen. Da ich schon immer fasziniert war von der ostasiatischen Auffassung von Körper, Seele und Geist und den Heilmethoden die dort in Jahrtausend langer Tradition entwickelt wurden, möchte ich gerne eine Ausbildung in japanischer Akupunktur vor Ort machen.Da meine Internetrecherche bzgl. Ausbildungsstatten, die auch deutschen Graduierten (ohne japanische Sprachkenntnisse) offen stehen, bisher wenig erfolgreich verlaufen ist, möchte ich Sie fragen, ob Sie mir weiterhelfen könnten.
Hello:
I am a 1st year medical resident in the United States who is Japanese-American and very interested in studying acupuncture. In particular, I have the time from April 29-May 10 that I was hoping to use to observe at an acupuncture clinic in Tokyo.
I found you on the internet and was wondering if you have English-speaking colleagues in Tokyo who I might approach about setting up a observational rotation at their clinic.
Hallo!
Ich bin eine deutsche Tierärztin und und lerne Veterinärakupunktur in Deutschland. Da aber Japaner oder Chinesen doch bestimmt meistens bessere Lehrer sind und mich ein Aufenthalt speziell in Japan sehr reizen würde ware ich dankbar fur Hinweise, wo es in Japan Akupunkturpraxen oder Kliniken fur Tiere gibt, die Kurse oder Hospitanzen anbieten.Bin fur jeden Hinweis dankbar!
Dear Thomas
Thank you so much for getting back to me. Your advi se is much appreciated and is a good starting point to get me thinking properly about everything.
If I do decide to go back to Japan it will probably not be until next year. However if it is OK with you I may well
be in touch for some more advice.
Many thanks once
Konnichi-wa Blasejewicz-san,
ich wende mich an Sie mit der Frage, wo die Ausbildung in japanischer Akupunktur hier in Deutschland (oder auch in Japan) möglich ist. Auch nach längerer Suche im Internet habe ich keine greifbaren Infos gefunden.Vielen Dank fur Ihre Mühe. Doumo arigatou gozaimasu. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sehr geehrter Herr Blasejewicz,
vielen herzlichen Dank fur Ihre so prompte Antwort auf meine Mail. Ich habe auf der Suche mit den Stichworten " Japan + acupuncture" Ihre Site gefunden. So bin ich auf Sie gestosen. Was meine Person betrifft zunächst ein paar Eckdaten:Anästhesist in deutschem Kreiskrankenhaus, Japan-Neugieriger, 3 mal kurz in Japan gewesen, seit 2 Jahren Japanisch-Unterricht, B-Diplom Akupunktur (360 Std.) der Dt. Ärztegesellschaft fur Akupunktur (www.daegfa.de), Ausbildung chin. Phytotherapie, QI-Gong-Erfahrung, seit 30 Jahren Karate-Do.Und jetzt möchte ich gerne Akupunktur in Japan lernen.Die Art und Weise, wie man in Japan mit Akupunktur arbeitet. Offenbar soll sich diese Praxis ja doch wesentlich von der chinesischen Art unterscheiden (Hara-Diagnostik etc.) Ich bin schon mal fur 10 Tage bei Dr.Yamamoto in Nichinan gewesen. Da war aber viel zu kurz. Leider bietet er auser seinen Standard-Seminaren auch keine weiteren Ausbildungsmoglichkeiten an. Daher habe ich mich nun an Sie gewandt, mit der Frage, an wen ich mich wohl wenden konnte, um eine Ausbildung in jap. Akupunktur zu bekommen.
Konnte ich vielleicht gar bei Ihnen hospitieren? Was für Möglichkeiten sehen Sie? Der Zeitrahmen, den ich zur Verfügung hättet, wären 1-3 Monate.
Hello sir:
I visited your website and thought I'd congratulate you on your successes in Japan. I am an American Naturopathic Doctor living in Okinawa and operate a Wellness Center. I retired from the US military and still work on base during the day. My wife is Okinawan and we plan to live here in Okinawa. The focus of my practice is health promtion and disease prevention. I refer some of my patients to 2 MDs who practice acupuncture here in Okinawa. Hope our paths cross as I enjoy meeting other medical professionals and exchanging ideas. Good luck in your professional endeavors.
Hallo Tom,
mein Name ist HXXX und ich studiere zur Zeit Alternative Medizin (TCM) in der Schweiz. Da mich die japanische Kultur mehr interessiert als die Chinesische wurde ich gerne statt in China oder Vietnam ein Praktikum in Akupunktur in Japan machen (Sommer 2009).
Ich bin auf der Suche nach Kontaktmöglichkeiten auf Deine Seite gestossen und dabei auch auf Deine Aussage zu den Möglichkeiten eines Praktikums für Ausländer in Japan. Es klingt wenig motivierend, dennoch möchte ich die Gelegenheit wahrnehmen Dich direkt zu kontaktieren und zu fragen, ob es mögliche Links oder Adressen, vielleicht auch Kliniken oder Klöster gibt, bei denen ich mich nach Praktikumsmöglichkeiten erkundigen könnte. Japanisch speche ich leider nicht aber ein sehr gutes Englisch.Ich würde mich freuen, von Dir zu hören. Viele Grusse aus der Schweiz
Dear Thomas,
I am a resident physician in the US interested in acupuncture. I have been to Japan twice and am very interested in Japanese language and culture as well.
I was wondering if you are aware of a course I could take in Japan for a few weeks to a month that would give me an introduction to acupuncture. My Japanese language skills are basic. I would appreciate any ideas.
Thanks
Hallo!
Ich habe gerade Ihre Lebensgeschichte gelesen und war sehr begeistert, denn Ihr Anfang ist meinem sehr ähnlich. Ich interessiere mich schon seit ich klein bin fur die jap. Kultur, betreibe seit ich 12 bin Aikido (bin jetzt 20) und möchte unbedingt irgendwie nach Japan. Gleichzeitig interessiere ich mich sehr fur die TCM. Deshalb wurde ich gerne meinen Zivildienst in einem Krankenhaus fur TCM machen. Nur habe ich bisher keinen einzigen Anlaufpunkt in dieser Hinsicht gefunden. Könnten Sie mir behilflich sein?
Mit freundlichen Grüssen
Dear Dr. Thomas,
Perhaps you remember me: the Ophthalmologist in the Army and the Japanese wife with stomach problems.
Well, we are back in Hawaii, no longer in the military, and thinking about extending my medical training beyond conventional western medicine. I'm considering an acupuncture course for medical doctors, but am also very interested in the Japanese technique of needling and applying moxibustion.
I was wondering if you have ever considered accepting apprentices into your practice. I thought perhaps I could come to Japan for the 3 months of a tourist visa and volunteer time in your clinic.
My concern is that learning acupuncture in the states may only give me a technical understanding, and my wish is to gain a deeper understanding of the philosophy behind the treatment and how this can be applied to the concept of energy medicine and my practice of Qigong.
Thank you for considering my request.
Sehr geehrter Herr Blasejewicz, 
ich habe mit grossem Interesse Ihre Homepage gelesen und es hat mich sehr angesprochen, was Sie besonders über Akkupunktur und Shiatsu schreiben. Ich selbst habe von letztem Jahr Oktober bis Februar diesen Jahres in Japan / Tokorosawa mit meinem japanischen Verlobten gelebt und bin in Tokyo zur Sprachschule gegangen. Während dieser Zeit hatte ich selbst am eigenen Leib erfahren wie heilsam Akkupunktur in Japan sein kann, da ich längere Zeit unter sehr starken Rückenschmerzen litt und kein Schulmediziner mir weiterhelfen konnte.Mein Interesse für die asiatischen Heilmethoden, insbesondere Akkupunktur war schon immer vorhanden. Aber dieses Erlebnis in Japan hat mich nicht mehr losgelassen, so dass in mir der Gedanke gereift ist, dass ich ab Anfang nächsten Jahres nach meiner Hochzeit in Japan und Beginn meines Lebens dort gerne eine 3-jährigen Ausbildung in Akkupunktur und Shiatsu beginnen möchte. Ich habe bereits auf Ihrer Homepage gesehen, dass Sie zwei japanische Akkupunktur Societies empfehlen.Da mein Japanisch allerdings noch nicht so fortgeschritten ist, dass ich an Kursen auf Japanisch mit Leichtigkeit teilnehmen könnte, ist meine Frage an Sie, ob Sie vielleicht eine Akkupunktur Schule in Japan kennen, die auch Kurse auf Englisch anbietet. Es wäre sehr schade, wenn die Sprachbarriere mich darin hindern würde, dass ich bereits nächstes Jahr mit der Ausbildung anfangen kann. Vielleicht können Sie mir hierzu ja ein paar gute Ratschläge geben wie ich meinen grossen Wunsch nach dieser Ausbildung in Japan am besten umsetzen könnte, was ich vielleicht berücksichtigen sollte und ob Japanisch sprechen, schreiben und lesen Grundvoraussetzung ist oder bis zu welchem Level man die Sprache beherrschen sollte .Für jeden Hinweis / Ratschlag bin ich sehr dankbar. Für Ihre Rückmeldung bedanke ich mich recht herzlich. Mit freundlichen Grüssen aus München
Hello Thomas!
I was reading the comments at the bottom of Brain Blogger on a commentary of Sham acupuncture vs. Acupuncture. I stumbled onto your comment and saw that you were located in Japan. I have been looking for someone in Japan, to simply observe and get a better feel of Jappanese Acupuncture. I am a recent graduate from an Oriental Medicine school in the United States. I am currently teaching English, inorder to get abetter feeling abroad. I reside in Wakayama, and have looked for but haven't found much besides a small massage place that uses shaku juku? - quick insertion and rapid needling on sore areas of the body. I have also seen a small Kanpo shop, that has just your usual herbs for use. I would like to study under someone briefly if time allows while I am here.
Sehr geehrter Herr Blasejewicz 
Ich bin bei meiner Recherche über eine Praktikumsmöglichkeit in Japan auf Ihre Homepage gestossen. Mein Name ist Anita Beurer, ich komme aus der Schweiz und studiere an der Heilpraktikerschule Luzern TCM. Da die Schule nur Praktikas in Vietnam anbietet, muss ich selber recherchieren. Ich würde mich sehr für ein Praktikum in Japan interessieren. Hätten Sie mir da hilfreiche Adressen von Kliniken oder auch Privatpraxen? Nehmen Sie selber Praktikanten? Kennen Sie die Akupunkturklinik von Sakae Yoneyama in Yokkaichi? 
Vielen herzlichen Dank für ein offenes Ohr. Mit freundlichen Grüssen
Dear Thomas Blasejewicz,
I am going to vist Japan this year from 12.5. - 3.6.
I was hoping that you can help me with information where in Japan I can get some additional short training (course) in amma massage movements (anma therapy, traditional Japanese massage), especially for upper body. So far, I made a contact with secretary of Dr. Konaka Koji from Kyoto Shiatsu Institute and Eisaku Kanazawa (acupuncturist,moxibustionist and anma-massage-shiatsu therapist) from Tokyo.
I practise chair massage professionaly and in 2005, I finished TouchPro Tutorial in UK (chair massage training, based on Anma therapy). I am postgraduate student on Faculty of Sports in Ljubljana, Slovenia. I also learned different massage techniques in Thailand and India.
Thank you so much for your reply.
Hallo Thomas,
Ich habe deine Seite beim Suchversuch eine Akupunkturschule in Tokyo oder Kamakura zu finden, im Netz entdeckt. 
Durch eine gute Fügung ist es mir möglich nächste Woche 10.11. nach Japan zu reisen. In Deutschland habe ich über viele Jahre eine eigene Akupunkturpraxis und da ich immer wieder nach Ausbildung gefragt wurde gebe ich ab und an auch mal einen Kurs. Hauptsächlich akupunktiere ich ehr chinesisch, jedoch behandle ich Kinder schon immer nur in japanischer Art und Weise, dem sog, Shonishin und würde gerne viel mehr über die japanische Akupunktur und Kampomedizin erfahren. Je länger ich mich mit Akupunktur beschäftige um so intensiver verspüre ich den Wunsch meine Arbeitsweise zu verändern und ich glaube in Japan das für meinen weg passende zu finden. Vielleicht magst du dich bei mir mal melden.
Viele Grüße
Hi Thomas,
I have read through your website and was encouraged by your suggestions and comments (and your personal journey that brought you to Japan).
To give you some background...
During January this year, my husband and I relocated from Australia to Shanghai, China and plan to remain here for the next 3 years.
Although I have studied many subjects in Naturopathic medicine and nutrition (I have a BA HSc (Comp. Med.) and Adv. Dip's. in nutrition, western herbal med and massage); I have a desire to learn Macrobiotic and Japanese health principles. I am nearing completion of my Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine studies, which I began in Beijing 2 years ago, continued these studies in Australia and am now concluding my internship. I recently spent a couple of weeks completing a clinical training session through Nanjing University (China) and their affiliated hospitals.
I have a special interest in Japanese culture and arts and this has partly been inspired by my teacher from the Acupuncture college in Australia who trained us in some Japanese techniques (i.e. ion pumping, hara diagnosis, ryodoraku, shiatsu). I would definitely love to expand on this initial training, even if only by observation. I understand the difficulty of studying acupuncture in Japan as a foreigner who does not speak Japanese and everything you have shared on your website makes sense (especially your comments comparing the situation to China)!
I have planned a solo trip to Japan during late May and for the month of June this year.
So, my question is... do you think there is any opportunity for me to observe / enter into the acupuncture community in Japan during my upcoming visit and / any subsequent visits? If so, what would you suggest?

Lieber Herr Blasejewicz,
auf meiner Onlinesuche bin ich mit großem Interesse auf Ihre Internetseite
gestoßen.
Was Sie in Japan auf die Beine gestellt haben finde ich ganz toll!
Nach 9 Jahren im intensivmedizinischen Bereich habe ich den Weg der
Naturheilkunde im Vollzeitstudium für mich entdeckt.
Als mein Partner und ich in diesem Jahr für 4 Monate nach Nippon gingen,
wurde in mir das Bedürfnis geweckt, die Japanische Akupunktur zu erlernen.
Land und Leute lassen mich nicht mehr los.
Leider haben wir via Internet und unsere Kontakte bis heute keinen deutsch-
oder englischsprachigen Kurs (und/ oder Hospitation) für ein paar Wochen/
Monate in Tokyo oder Kyoto ausfindig machen können.
Vielleicht können Sie mir weiterhelfen? Sicher haben sie diesbezüglich viele
Kontakte.
Kennen Sie auch kompetente Ausbildungsmöglichkeiten in Deutschland?
Für Ihre Mühen danke ich Ihnen im Voraus!
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Dear Thomas,
Thank you for putting up your website. It was great and very inspiring to see all that you have done and achieved!
We are two acupuncture students from Australia, Perth. We will be finishing our studies at the end of this year. In Perth we came a across a Japanese clinic. It was so amazing to see the Japanese approach to acuuncture that we are really inspired to learn the Japanese way. We read it was hard to learn acupuncture in Japan, but we really are very keen. Please could you help us to find a teacher for us. Our goal initially would be to come for one month, probably next year 2010 in June.
Well this is just a small introduction! we really look forward to hear from you and please tell us what we should do in order to achieve our goals!
Thank you kindly --> their request I already put up on my "Wanted" page looking for cooperative Japanese practitioners
Hallo!
Ich suche seit Monaten eine Möglichkeit oder eine Adresse für eine Ausbildung in japanischer Akupunktur! Würde auch sehr gerne nach Japan reisen um diese Kunst zu erlernen!
War letztes Jahr in China in einer Klinik für 1 Monat zur Ausbildung in chinesischer Akupunktur.
Habe schon mehrere Akupunktur Ausbildung absolviert, nur fehlt mir noch die Königsdisziplin. Habe schon viel gehört und gelesen, nur wenig Möglichkeiten um es zu erlernen.
Vielleicht können Sie mir weiter helfen? Ich wäre Ihnen sehr dankbar!
Liebe Grüße
Hi there,
Thank you so much for the taking the time and detail in your web pages! I myself am looking to come to Japan next year, for many reasons but the most is to be in what I like to call 'the source' for some of the most fascinating and inspiring therapies, accupuncture, shiatsu and reiki. I have read about how hard it is to be accepted and actually learn while Im there but I feel I still need to try. I am currently a massage therapist and reflexologist and am eligible for a working holiday visa , , Just! :) I feel I need to do this even if it is to get a basic knowledge to go and study elsewhere. I wanted to make contact with you and wondered if you may know of anyone who may help me learn? anything would be a bonus. I appreciate your help and honesty.
Many thanks
  Hello Thomas,
I am a TCM graduate (from University of Westminster, London). I graduated last year, and am currently in China. I have been observing a TCM doctor for 2 months in a city called Hefei, and am now deciding on my next move. So i hope you don't mind me emailing you to ask for a bit of advice regarding coming to Japan to learn acupuncture. 
I would really like to come to Japan to learn more, the alternative being to return to London, and begin practising. My main background is in TCM, I had a growing interest in Japanese acupuncture as I progressed through the degree, and decided by the end of it that I wanted to learn a more Japanese style of acupuncture.
I have subsidised my way in China by teaching English (in fact I worked for the TCM university in Hefei, so managed to do some observation during my free time), and would have to be teaching in Japan to pay my way. I originally tried to get an English teaching job in Japan, but then got offered one in China, and as it was with a TCM uni, I thought it would be a wise choice, and then I could come to Japan afterwards.
I am mulling over what to do next, but thought it would be wise to contact someone such as yourself to ask for any advice regarding finding a teacher in Japan. Any information or advice would be very much appreciated.
regards
  Herr Einklang,
I saw your web site and decided to e-mail you. I'm an American Physician Acupuncturist who, just moved from Germany to Japan and was hoping to shadow or train here to learn the unique Japanese form of acupuncture which I've read about. I'm in Zama City, just outside Yokohama and have had no luck in finding anyone who will allow me to shadow. I did find the Chinese courses you discussed and may look into those, but I'm interested in any help you might be able to provide.
Sincerely,
  I am looking to get a basic background in acupuncture, including observing its use. I would like to understand how patients are selected, which patients would benefit the most, how treatments are personalized and customized for each individual, etc. Having the opportunity to talk with the patients would also be helpful to understand their perspectives and their own experiences. Acupuncture and Eastern medicine is becoming a popular fad in America, but it is still widely considered “alternative” medicine and is still seldom used. I think it would be a great opportunity for me to learn about acupuncture and other Eastern medicinal therapies in a country that has a long history of its use and a culture with a more accepting view of its practice.
I spent five years in Nagoya before medical school, and have become somewhat fluent in casual Japanese language; however I admit my formal Japanese and medical vocabulary are lacking. In talking with Jo-sensei, I think he was originally concerned that I wanted to learn acupuncture so that I could return to the states and begin using it. However, I tried to explain to him that this is not my goal. That is unrealistic and I understand my own limitations. I am just hoping to get an opportunity to learn and observe its practice and to get a unique experience which I cannot get here in Cooperstown. My program is pretty flexible and encouraging of its residents to pursue international electives such as this, and I think if something can be arranged, it would be a wonderful learning experience for me. The first opportunity that I would have to do this would be during the four week block of Oct. 13 until Nov. 9, 2010. I would require no salary or benefits, just the opportunity to learn and observe. The paperwork is simple, requiring just a signature and a list of objectives which I can write up. Other dates could be arranged if I can rearrange my schedule, but for now, those dates are the most ideal. 
Please let me know if you think this is something that can be arranged. I am looking forward to the possible opportunity to return to Japan and learn about this field of medicine.
 
I have been reading your webpage about your experiences of studying and practising acupuncture in Japan with great interest. Your love of Japanese culture is very obvious from your writing and has inspired me to contact you. I also have a great love of Japanese traditional culture, especially the spiritual aspects of practices such as the tea ceremony and calligraphy, Shinto belief in nature spirits and the veneration of nature and Buddhist ideas about death and dying.The reason I'm writing to you, is to ask if you know of someone who would be willing to apprentice me in acupuncture. I realise that it places you in a difficult situation, to ask favours of your friends or colleagues. I would be willing to apprentice with a Japanese practitioner or a gaijin practitioner who was open to the idea.
My background is in Japanese language and I have lived in Japan in the past. I completed a BA at Queensland University and did a double major in Japanese language, before doing a teaching diploma and becoming a Japanese high school teacher.
I left teaching after a few years, because I realised that my main desire was to speak Japanese and learn about Japanese culture. I moved to Japan and lived there for 2 years. I imagined myself living there for much longer, but without any other skills, I found that the main work available was as an English teacher, or in the hotel industry, which was not altogether satisfying. My language improved and I learnt a lot about Japanese culture in those two years, which has remained with me ever since.
Last year I started acupuncture studies here in Brisbane. After 18 months, I realised that the way the course is structured, I would never finish in the 10 year maximum time frame, because with school-age-children of my own now, I am unable to study as a full-time student. It is very frustrating to feel that if I really want to become an acupuncturist here, I must either wait until my children are grown, or I must compromise my role as a mother, to be able to attend the classes that are offered outside of regular school hours.
I hope that you can make some recommendations for me and I appreciate in advance, the difficulties you would experience in helping a gaijin.
 Currently studying Shiatsu in one of the alternative medicine colleges.Actually started to get more and more interested in Japan there culture, life, beliefs and of course treatment techniques.
I'm thinking of moving to Japan for like a year or so to get an impression of their life and to study Shiatsu or Accupuncture.
Trying to figure out what is the best way to do it and how can i find a good teacher.
I'm less interested in all the "courses for foreigners" - i would love to learn smth really authentic if you know what i mean.
I just feel that our studies in here do not reflect the real thing, they lack the very basic understanding of Japanese soul and culture...
Anyhow, any information you can provide me will be very helpfull for me as it is very hard to find some across the web...
  Hi Thomas,
My name is ***. I am from Australia. I am very interested in studying Japanese acupuncture (JA) & found your www.einklang.com website to be very informative & interesting. It seems that studying JA is not an easy thing to do for English & European speaking people. Have there been any changes in terms of accessibility for foreign students to study JA in Japan since the writing of your website article? I have looked at a variety of schools around the world including Tri-State College of Acupuncture (New York, US) & various Australia based post graduate courses. None have been successful.
Based on your article, it sounds like the best thing to do is learn Japanese & fly to Japan & look for practitioners who are willing to take on an apprentice. I might get a lot of knock backs. But I'm sure persistance & patience will pay off in the end. I might also look at teaching english in Japan for a year which will give me plenty of time to look around for practitioners & also learn the language at the same time.
Do you have any thoughts/ideas? Your advice is much appreciated.
Regards,
  Dear Thomas
My names G., I'm an acupuncturist from New Zealand and am in tokyo at the moment. I have come to Japan hoping to learn from acupuncturists here and I came across your website.
I would like to know if you allow people to observe you in your clinic? if so would it be possible to come and observe you for a few hours sometime? 
 Hi Mr. Thomas Blasejewicz,Attached is my application for clinical observation Thanks for the quick reply! I am honoured to hear that the man I am talking to is the man who made all of this possible!  It has been a little bit difficult to find practitioners who will take on students in Australia and the courses that run Japanese acupuncture workshops are so scarce I figured I would head over to enjoy the snow and take in some first hand experience. I have been running my own business in Brisbane since the start of this year and finding that while Chinese methods are a good base for learning they are not for everyone. The idea that moxa in Japan is its own profession also interests me.
  Hello Thomas, 
I hope this email finds you well, My name is XXX, I am an Acupuncturist from New Zealand in Japan for the month of April. When I asked my colleague/friend about the potential for observing Acupuncture while in Japan, he recommended you. So, if there is opportunity for me to meet you and observe you practicing, I would be most great-full.
I look forward to your reply.

Greetings Mr. Thomas, my name is XXX. To my great fortune, I found your website, which I thought was very interesting. Please bear with me and excuse me for writing such a long letter.
I’m currently in Tokyo studying Japanese until August, and then I will go back to Sweden to continue studying Traditional Chinese Medicine. I have always been very interested in Japan and once upon a time considered working here, but in Okinawa. A few years earlier, when I entered university, I started studying Japanese and also found a teacher whom I started studying TCM under.
Both the Japanese language and TCM found itself in my life when I was barely 10 year old. A Japanese phrasebook and an acupuncture book opened up a whole new world for me, leading me to learn more about Japanese culture and Chinese as well, for I began practicing Shaolin Gong-Fu, Tai Qi, Qi Gong, Dao Yin, Nei Gong, Nei Dan and then learning TCM, obviously. Mostly, I must say, it has been and still is a path towards spiritual maturation.
I was quite lost a few years until now, but since I came here I finally realized that I wanted to follow my bliss and vocation with passion. My bliss is without question spirituality and TCM plays a very great part of it, because this is what I wish to earn my daily bread with. However, destiny is a funny thing; two years ago, I was abroad in Okinawa and realized that I didn’t want to work in Japan after all. Then I went back home and repeated my TCM year, but was offered a chance to study in Tokyo with a very nice scholarship, so I came here again. Very quickly I found a girlfriend who is willing to support my path, so I and started reconsidering the country I could work in.
I will be certified (acknowledged by WHO) in Sweden, so I don’t know if it would work in any other country, especially Japan. I don’t know if the Japanese schools for TCM teach Western Medicine as well, but we in Sweden only need to study 1 year the basics of Western Medicine, that way the government pays the health insurance of the patient, and also we do not get blame if we make mistakes. In addition, my teacher doesn’t teach herbal medicine as he doesn’t consider himself skilful enough in that particular art. Nevertheless, I want to finish my studies and get my TCM practitioner certificate. Also, we are not allowed to treat cancer in any way, nor gynaecological diseases, such as gonorrhoea and so on, which is a shame. Now, I was thinking that maybe, somehow, I could study in Japan, but I need to live here and work for my residence and school expenses. I can’t see a way to make this happen.
Although mailing is quick and efficient, I wonder if you would be willing to meet face to face, whenever you have time of course. I feel that it could be very interesting and meaningful to me and hopefully fun for both of us, with similar volitions, to talk. I showed your very well written Japanese website to my girlfriend, and she is also very interested in meeting you if you would be willing to.
Thank you!
Yours Sincerely
  Hello. 
My name is XXX. I am 49 years old Swedish citizen living in Stockholm, Sweden. I speak no Japanese but I speak English flowently. 
I am at my final face (last semester) out of a three year TCM acupuncture program at Akupunkturakademin, a credited acupuncture school in Sweden. As part of the program in order to become a certified TCM acupuncturist I need to do an internship, 150 hours of work/observation, in a clinic that practice TCM acupuncture. 
I read about your clinic on your homepage and it caught my eyes. My question is if you accept or would accept interns in to your clinic and if so would it be possible to arrange for me to do 150 hours with you sometimes/anytime after 1st of June.
Looking forward to your respons.
Best regards
