We specialize in Japanese Style Acupuncture using gentle yet powerful techniques using the thinnest needles and very shallow needle insertion with stimulation. Sometimes we use no needles at all. For those who are very sensitive, including children under 10 years old, we use blunt tools to stimulate points or stroke the surface of the skin.
Much emphasis is focused on pulse diagnosis and palpation of the abdomen and meridians to identify the root patterns underlying your symptoms. By identifying patterns of tightness, pain, coldness, heat, dampness, dryness, or other findings, we determine which meridians should be the focus of the treatment. Before you leave your appointment, you will directly feel the changes that have occurred throughout the treatment.
