Acupuncture Style

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.


In addition to acupuncture, we often use moxabustion. Moxa is another name for the herb Artemesia Vulgaris, also known as mugwort, which grows in many areas throughout the world. It is used medicinally in virtually every area that it grows both as an internal and external tonic. It is used to warm regions and acupuncture points with the intention of increasing local circulation, easing pain, and stimulating the immune system.

Moxabustion has been shown to increase healthy white blood cells, red blood cells, and immune factors in an adaptogenic way making it particularly useful for treating cancers of all types.  It is also very effective in treating tuberculosis and other infections that have become resistant to antibiotics. Check out to see how this powerful herbal medicine is being used in Africa to combat this deadly disease.


Sotai is ‘the comfortable medicine’. Sotai is a bodywork technique developed by Dr. Keizo Hashimoto (1897 – 1993), based on returning natural body alignment by working with the breath and moving toward comfort rather than toward pain. In addition to sotai administered in the office, you may be given exercises to do at home between treatments to accelerate your healing process and continue pain relief.

Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine is often an important part of treatment. After 5 acupuncture treatments, we may recommend an herbal formula which has been tailored to your specific health condition and symptoms. In this way, your acupuncture treatments are supported every day of the week, whether you can come in for a treatment or not. Indeed, this is crucial for treating very severe, chronic diseases.
