WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a branch of traditional Chinese medicine which originated around 3,000 years ago. It gradually made its way out of China and across Asia, eventually reaching the rest of the world in the last century.
In recent years acupuncture has rapidly increased in popularity. More research is being carried out all the time, and we are now beginning to scientifically understand how this ancient system of medicine works and its far-reaching benefits.
Acupuncture aims to both maintain health and treat disease. It is carried out by placing fine needles at specific points on the body called acupuncture points. These needles are as thin as a hair, sterile and disposed of after a single use. Once the needles are in place people experience a range of different sensations. These vary between a warm, tingling sensation and a light, dull ache. Most people find it an extremely relaxing experience.

Japanese Acupuncture aims for restorative treatment because acupuncture is aimed to balance the central points of the body, it restores the body to its normal state and maintains overall treatment. The acupuncturist will locate the different acupuncture points, known as active point. Since they are dealing with actual patients, there is no textbook that will guide them as to where the actual locations of the points are. They are licensed and have been in many years of training as to how to locate and palpate the “active points”. Japanese acupuncture assists in a wide range of illnesses .
Japanese acupuncture has been proven to be effective in treating a variety of medical conditions, including headaches, back pains, knee pains, fatigue, depression, anxiety, gastric problems, strains, sprains, bruises and even infertility. It can also help you in cardiovascular problems such as chest pain, high or low blood pressure, and poor blood circulation; in respiratory problems such as hay fever, common colds, bronchitis and asthma; in urogenital problems such as low virility, kidney disorders, and cystitis and bladder dysfunction; and in dermatological problems, including rashes, psoriasis, and dermatitis and hair loss.
Japanese acupuncture is more subtle and gentle. There are people who are not very comfortable with the sight of long needles that produce strong stimulus and may weaken or make them tired. The Japanese way of acupuncture uses smaller and finer needles, thus reducing the pain. A metal or plastic tube is used to guide the needles into the skin so the insertion is more accurate and done more gently.
