In traditional oriental medicine think Qi moves blood. 

When air is taken into the lungs, combine with nutrients (foods intakes), and circulate Qi and blood.

If Qi stagnate, blood stagnate. And it causes various mental and physical dysfunction.

And also continuing a bad posture will make the muscles stiff and wrinkle the fascia.

An acupuncture directly penetrates to the fascia / muscle, and expands blood vessels, relieves the compress of nerves and promotes blood flow.
Therefore, when inserting the needle in the blocked area, enhance the natural healing power. And also relax the muscles and relieve tension.

Then the waste that accumulates in the body is discharged to the kidneys, and bladder.

Acupuncture is effective for stiff neck, shoulder, lower back pain, sciatica, headache, migraine, insomnia, anxiety, digestion problem, bowel problem, women's issues etc.

The thickness of the needle will change according to the person's sensitivity and use thinner needles and shallow insertion to treat painlessly for the sensitive clients.

But you may sometimes feel a tingling, aching, and heaviness sensation.

( use disposable needles each time, there is no danger such as infectious diseases.)

*In the first visit and if you have internal disease symptoms, it takes time for the inquiry, so I recommend a 90min session.

*If you are not suitable for acupuncture, not comfortable to acupuncture yet, or have a strong rejection to needle, there's an alternative way to treat  such as non needling acupuncture. Please feel free to consult.

For whom with low blood pressure and low blood sugar, please have a light meal before coming to the clinic.
When the initial visit, I needed to make some inquiries for several minutes.

Tuina is a traditional manual therapy of Chinese and Shiatsu (Acupressure) is a traditional manual therapy of Japanese .

Pressing points on the body using the fingers, palms and elbows, and treatment methods involves kneading, tapping, grasping and stroking.

It is used to restore homeostasis by stimulating the body and to maintain and promote well-being. Usually performed through the clothes. 

Cupping is a therapy that strengthens vacuum skin and muscle with glass/plastic/silicon cups strongly (or adequent strength).
By sucking the skin, it discharges carbon dioxide out of the body and has the function of taking in fresh oxygen. The skin pushed up in the cups and prompts blood flow. When removing the cups, it will drain waste and detox.
I adjust the strength of suction according to individuals. Also, please be assured, I will disinfect the cups for each use.
There are various ways of cupping and choose according to your preference and symptoms.

Note: Please understand the following matters .

Cupping may not be able to apply depending on your skin conditions and symptoms.

Due to the factors such as often intake of cold foods, living in the environment of long rainy season, and lack of exercise, metabolism falls, and will cause symptoms such as swelling, stiffness, and pain.  The body is heavy, dull, and cold.

The warming therapy works very well for these symptoms.

By giving heat at a pinpoint, warmth gradually penetrates the whole body.
I prepared various kinds of warming therapy methods and chose according to individuals.

Note: Please understand the following matters .

It may not be able to apply depending on the symptoms.

If you have any kind of allergy, please let me know in advance.

Specific points on the muscles or nerves using a low-frequency electrical current. Acupuncture needles inserted into the body are attached to a device that generates electrical currents. The frequency and intensity of the pulses are set depending on the condition.

You may experience mild muscle twitching. The effect is to reduce muscle tension and pain and enhance blood circulation.


Note: Please understand the following matters .

Electro-Acupuncture may not be able to apply depending on your conditions such as clients with pacemakers and history of seizures/epilepsy.

 The feet are the foundation of human physical structure, as well as an important foundation of human health. Reflexology is effective to reduce tension, as well as to stimulate the internal organs.

Reflexology is a holistic healing method that press and massage the acupoints and areas on the feet and hands.

Reflexology that I do is not for relaxation, but therapeutic purposes.

I will use it if necessary for the treatment after the inquiry and palpate the body.

Therefore, sometimes use a professional stick to release the knots. (I will try not to be too strong.)
