Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese method used to relieve some health conditions and symptoms, such as pain. An acupuncturist inserts very thin steel needles into the patient’s skin at multiple “acupoints.” The needles rebalance the body’s energy, or qi, and prompt the body to release natural chemicals to fight the illness or symptom.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

Japanese Acupuncture

In future, Japanese acupuncture will become an active component of complementary, alternative and integrative care not only in Japan but also throughout the world.
Japanese Acupuncture is making inroads in a variety of fields, including sports, beauty and welfare, and is expected to improve the quality of life of those undergoing palliative care.
Japanese acupuncture has survived and flourished up to the present day due to the strong demand and the great efforts of the practitioners.

Korean Hand Therapy ( Sujok )

A part of Onnuri medicine, Su Jok is a treatment system comprised of a variety of techniques that prevent and cure illness and restore health without any drugs. Our hands (“su” in Korean) and feet (“jok”) represent our entire body in miniature. In fact, they represent a smaller, but nevertheless true, mirror image of the whole body (for example, the thumbs and big toes represent the head). The same way we use a remote control to operate a television, we can use our hands and feet to influence our whole body and cure disease. By understanding the exact similarities between various parts of the body and the hands and feet, one can influence any place or problem using the corresponding Su Jok treatment. The body’s meridian system, with which we perform metaphysical energy manipulation therapies, is also reflected in the hands and feet. Knowledge of the principles of hand and foot therapy provides an impressive vehicle for personal and family healthcare.

Cupping Acupuncture

Cupping Acupuncture is used for thousands of years to ease back pain, neck pain, headaches and other problems. Cupping therapy involves creating a suction force to pull blood into the skin. Cupping causes bruising and can lead to skin infection.
The needles are then pulled to the target area by the cups and the needles help the muscles to relax. The cups are warm when placed on the skin which also helps relax the muscles.

Electro Acupuncture

Electroacupuncture is a modern variation of acupuncture. It uses electricity to enhance the benefits of this traditional therapeutic treatment. Like traditional acupuncture, electroacupuncture uses needles placed in the same spots. Then, a small electrode is attached to the needles. A small amount of electricity runs through the electrode and gives a slight vibration or soft hum during treatment.
The electrode gives off the effect of your acupuncturist activating the acupuncture point with their hands. This ensures you get the right amount of stimulation during your whole treatment. The treatments are also shorter because the electrodes can activate your acupuncture points more quickly.

Tonifying Acupuncture

The therapy uses thin needles, which are inserted into certain points on your body's meridians. The needles are said to trigger energy flow, which helps balance qi. Acupuncture might also be done in the form of acupressure.
In Earth, the Tonification point is the Fire point (ST 41, SP 2), and so on around the cycle. These points can only be used as Tonification points when, by pulse diagnosis, it is determined that there is more energy in the Mother than in the child.
