Japanese acupuncture uses a focused and gentle technique to identify both the symptoms and root-issues of patients’ ailments. Japanese acupuncture is safe, effective, and gentle; therefore, it is excellent for family and pediatric patient care. Patients are actively rather than passively involved in the process of finding the most effective acupuncture points for their specific needs.
The dynamism of Japanese acupuncture results in patients feeling an immediate change in symptoms, rather than having to wait for several treatments before experiencing the effects of acupuncture.
Acupuncture has been practiced in China and the Far East for thousands of years as an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is a safe and effective system of healing that can be used to treat people of all ages with a wide range of illnesses.
According to Chinese philosophy, our physical health is dependant on the balanced flow of Qi, the universal life force. The smooth flow of Qi can be disturbed by a number of factors, including emotional stress, anger, fear or grief, hereditary dispositions or outside influences such as poor nutrition, infection or trauma.
Since prehistoric times, the Chinese people have evolved a complex theoretical framework based on practical clinical experience to guide a trained acupuncturist to restore these imbalances by the insertion of very fine needles into energy-channels called meridians. In this way an acupuncturist aims to stimulate the body's own healing power and restore the innate equilibrium and harmonious state of balance of the physical and emotional aspects that constitute health and wellbeing.
