About Japanese Style Acupuncture

Japanese needles are much thinner than Chinese needles. Thus, the patient feels almost no pain. In Japanese style acupuncture, the skin surface is poked frequently and it improves the balance of the subtle energy. The needle is very slender.

Electricity is flowing on the body surface and a shallow needle such as the Japanese needle may increase negative ions of the body and reduce active oxygen (the origin of fatigue). Also it may improve Endorphins (a painkiller stronger than morphine) in the brain.

After a consultation with Dr. Kiyo Tsubakiyama, we will recommend the best services for your condition and goals.
