Japanese Acupuncture & Moxbution
Acupuncture needles made in Japan

Japanese acupuncture needle is very thin compared to acupuncture needles using in China.

150913-0010We use only sterile and disporsable needles made by SEIRIN Japanese company.  Needles is as thin as a human hair is.  We usually use needles which is 0.16mm diameter and 30mm length.

The needle tip is round

SEIRIN, Japanese company creates acupuncture needles with round tip. We are able to provide quality care thanks to the company’s efforts of SEIRIN.

We feel a lot of things through the tip of the needles during providing acupuncture treatment.
Is there any changes in patient’s muscle with treatment ?
Does it stimulate comfortably and appropriately ?
We treat with care, treat gently. This is the the acupuncture treatment.

Gentle stimulation in Japanese acupuncture style

In Japan we use the guide tubes called “shinkan” to help make insertion painless insertion.

To use “sinkan” to press the skin, help feel less pain in the pressed area, so patients often feel no needle sensation throughout the entire treatment.
