About Acupuncture & Moxibustion:
Recent studies show acupuncture and moxibustion
treatment widens blood vessels with a pyretic action,
relieves pain, hypnotizes, suppresses appetite, modulates
visceral functions, and enhances immune functions.

Try out acupuncture and moxibustion treatment ?
Its effectiveness has been proved both experimentally
and scientifically!

Acupuncture:
In the early Edo-period, Waichi Sugiyama developed
a technique using fine needles.

Considering sensitive dispositions of Japanese
people, he adopted a tube to support needles:
the needle tube has enabled a smooth
insertion of a fine and supple needle into the body.
Since then in Japan, fine needles have been
used commonly.

Our policy is to provide a “body-friendly and
comfortable” treatment.

We use hair-thin needles of 0.16 - 0.24 mm
in diameter.

Needles are inserted so swiftly and tenderly
you will not feel pain nor experience discomfort.

You will have a better blood circulation and
then feel comfortable and sleepy.

   
    A needle inserted into the skin.

For those with sensitive skin, we may not
insert needles. Instead, we may touch the
skin with a needle, or stimulate the spot with a tube.

From the aspects of good hygiene and
prevention of infections diseases,
we use disposable needles only.

Moxibustion :
There are two ways of moxibustion: one is to
put moxa directly on the skin (diathermic moxibustions),
and the other is to settle moxa
indirectly on the skin (moxa cautery).

Moxibustion is effective for those with a chronic
pain and/or a poor circulation.

We see many people suffering from sensitivity
to cold temperatures due to air conditioners or
too much intake of cold things.

We mainly use an electronic machine highly
simulating the thermal characteristics of moxibustion.
You will feel almost no residual smell on the hair or
the clothes.

Our electronic moxibustion provides continuous and
variable heat, enjoying a good reputation that you feel
comfortable and sleepy.

The thermal sensor attached prevents burn injuries.

If you have severe symptoms, we may put moxa
directly on the skin.
However, moxa itself is very small and gives off very
little smoke, so it bears almost no marks.


Therapeutic Effect :
Acute symptoms can be cured just after one-time treatment.
Chronic symptoms, however, may need somewhat
longer treatment to heal completely, depending on the
severity of the symptoms.

But then, we are sure you will see a preferable change
in the body after the treatment.
 
So we would recommend you visit us several times
until you experience relief or reduction in symptoms.


After the treatment :
You may feel heavy or sluggish. You can take a bath
in about 2 hours after the treatment.
