Acupuncture has been practiced in Asian countries such as China or Japan over thousands years and spreaded into Western countries from the 16th to the 19th century. Acupuncture is a form of treatment by inserting very fine needles on the skin at specific points to restore balance the body to heal itself.
What is Acupuncture
In our clinic, pre-sterile disposable and very thin needles (about 0.14-0.2mm) are used. Very gentle technique make you feel comfotable. Some clients experience a slight pricking sensation when the needle goes in, but once the needle is placed, it goes away and clients feel relaxed.
Moxibustion is a therapy using the burning of mugwort (moxa).
We use smokeless moxa rolls and a moxa box in our clinic. They are indirect moxa, therefore pain-free and reduce the risk of burning.
Most clients feel comfortable with moxibustion.
You could be recommended to apply moxa at home.
Warm Needle (Onshin / Nesshin)
Warm Needle Therapy (it is also called "Nesshin 熱鍼" (nes as netsu = heat 熱, shin = needle 鍼), or Onshin 温鍼 (on 温= warm) therapy) is one of the Japanese meridian therapy styles by using a blunt-shaped hand-held, warm metal rod to gently stimulate meridians and areas of the body.
