Arts of Medicine

Medicinal Arts

While many medics have the luxury of chakra to treat their wounds, some lack that gift, and many others prefer to supplement themselves with more traditional means. The Medicinal Arts are a series of disciplines and maneuvers that display a mastery of traditional healing techniques and treatments. While anyone can learn them, true mastery of the Arts of Medicine demands a thorough knowledge of both these, Iijutsu, and surgical techniques.

[b]*[color=#008b5e][Medicinal Style • Medic][/color][/b]
C-rank Taijutsu Discipline
Perhaps one of the most important disciplines of any aspiring Medic, one who has mastered this Discipline can maintain a clear mind when treating patients.

B-rank Taijutsu Discipline
When faced with multiple patients, one who has mastered this discipline is able to rapidly assess multiple patients and determine priority of their individual injuries, and the totality of their injuries to determine which require the highest priorities, and which can survive with delayed care.

[b]*[color=#008b5e][Medicinal Style • Comfort][/color][/b]
B-rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Through the use of acupuncture and their knowledge of pressure points, the user is able to quickly apply a series of pricks, leaving the needles in, that dulls pain in localized areas of the body, or even the entire body.

This discipline, combined with enough accuracy, can turn even the simplest of attacks into a fatal blow.

[b]*[color=#008b5e][Medicinal Style • Resuscitation][/color][/b]
A-rank Taijutsu Maneuver
In the event a patient has passed, in some cases it is possible to resuscitate the patient. Most major injuries must be first treated, as any untreated injuries would simply cause the patient to perish after resuscitation. Should the injuries be treated and this technique be initiated within 2 posts of the targets death, the user will applies pressure to a series of pressure points, and begin CPR, bringing the patient back to life. This technique will inevitably fail if not initiated within the 2 posts.

[b]*[color=#008b5e][Medicinal Style • Stun][/color][/b]
A-rank Taijutsu Maneuver
Through the use of needles, the user will target a series of pressure points on a targets back or chest, using it to stun their nervous signals, preventing movement, causing full body paralysis from the neck down in their patient, and dulling all pain receptors as well. While the technique has effective medical purposes, it can also be used in combat. The paralysis lasts for 4 posts, before fading, at which points the needles must be removed and replaced to sustain it.
[b]*[color=#008b5e][Medicinal Style • Guardian Angel][/color][/b]
[b]Prerequisite:[/b] 25 Art of Medicine Techniques or 25 Iijutsu, and at least 3 S-ranks for either, 45 Instinct.
S-rank Taijutsu Stance
The ultimate stance for anyone who practices medicine, this technique devotes all their focus into caring for a patient, taking away all possible distractions. The user's Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Genjutsu will all be dropped to 1, making them completely unable to utilize any techniques, with the only exception being [b][color=#008b5e]Art of Medicine, Iijutsu, and Organ Transplant[/color][/b] jutsu. While in this stance, the user is completely immune to any pain, unaffected by genjutsu, and able to tune out any external information not directly pertinent to the treatment of their patient. This stance can be sustained for up to [User's Stamina /2] posts, and the user will persist, regardless of any damage to them, unless they are damaged in a way that stops them from possibly being able to do so (decapitation, for example, would stop them, while a sword through their stomach would not.) However, separation from their patient, or ceasing to care for a patient, will immediately end the Stance.

[b]*[color=#008b5e][Medicinal Style • Faint Touch][/color][/b]
S-rank Taijutsu Maneuver
The user will move towards a target, with either a sharp weapon, or their hand. Targeting a pressure point on their carotid artery, the user will either stab it (with a weapon) or pinch it (with their hand). Should they be successful, any targets with less than 35 strength and 35 stamina will faint. This loss of consciousness will last for at least 2 posts.
