Japanese Acupuncture

Acupuncture was brought to Japan from China in the 6th century. During its 1400-year history in Japan, Japanese physicians refined and created techniques and ideas that differed from those of the Chinese. Acupuncture needling techniques in Japan generally involve thinner or smaller needles and employ shallower insertions than Chinese Acupuncture. There are two different treatment methods, namely ‘root’ and ‘local’. Root treatment seeks to restore the body from core energetic and structural imbalance, while local treatment brings about symptomatic relief.

Acupuncture is known to help with:

  • Allergies
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Balance and energy in body
  • Chronic pain, especially in the neck, back, knees, and head
  • Hypertension
  • Insomnia
  • Menstrual cramps and PMS
  • Migraine
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sciatica
  • Sprains
  • Strokes

Does it hurt?

You may feel little prick when the needle is inserted but often feel nothing. Most of the time we use very thin needle (0.16mm) to ensure the discomfort is minimum. 

Is the needle disposable?

All the needles we use are disposable.

Can I combine acupuncture treatment with other treatment?

Yes. In fact it works very well with other treatments such as Massage and Craniosacral therapy.
