This healing method originated in ancient China and from there, expanded into Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, and subsequently all over the world. Every culture since then has developed their own signature style of acupuncture, but is a variation of the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This means that Japanese acupuncturists are taught TCM to begin with and from there pursue a Japanese traditional, apprentice-style training to develop the Japanese style.
What is Chinese Style Acupuncture? Chinese acupuncture is based in the theoretical framework of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The practitioner develops a differential diagnosis and treatment plan for each individual patient based on signs, symptoms and medical history, tongue and pulse diagnosis. Specific acupuncture points are stimulated with thin needles to stimulate and clear imbalances in the flow of qi (energy) within the acupuncture meridians. By restoring balance, acupuncture encourages the body to embark on its own healing process.
Japanese Style Acupuncture: Japanese acupuncture uses fewer and thinner needles and relies more heavily on palpatory technique of the abdomen and wrist pulses. Within this style, non-insertive needle techniques (such as magnets or touching needle) can be used. Japanese acupuncture is beneficial for all types of patients but is especially suited for children and sensitive patients.
