My acupuncture treatment
I always explain that my treatments are “almost painless” and “fearless.”
My treatment begins with very thin acupuncture needles, 0.12㎜ in diameter. Ultra-fine acupuncture needles are almost painless and fearless. (However, if you do not have the skill, the acupuncture needles will bend.)
If the stimulation of this acupuncture is sufficient, we will proceed with the treatment as it is. Depending on the symptoms and constitution, a certain number of people prefer to treat the superficial areas with thin acupuncture needles.
However, it is not true that all treatments are completed with this thin acupuncture needle. I’ve done a lot of research, but people with deep symptoms often need deep acupuncture.
For example, people with deformed bone cartilage or numbness in the hands and feet (not due to medical diseases) often need deep acupuncture.
Acupuncture can touch deep reactions that people cannot easily touch, and the needle tip can reach the inner muscle. This is a big advantage of acupuncture.
There are many manual methods to reach deep inside the body, but it is difficult to achieve a high level of effectiveness, and side effects such as dullness and pain are likely to occur.
Acupuncture can approach the affected area with a very small point, so there are surprisingly few deputy reactions.
With this statement, you may feel that acupuncture works well, but it is difficult to provide acupuncture that works properly.
Difficulty 1: Finding the right amount of acupuncture needles and amount of stimulation for each person.
Acupuncture and moxibustion must provide just the right stimulation for the person. (This is the same for manual surgery.)
Everyone’s body is different, so it is difficult to decide what kind of acupuncture to use and what kind of treatment to provide depending on the constitutional symptoms.
If you provide too strong a stimulus or a change that the person’s body cannot keep up with, the treatment will fail. (Conversely, if the stimulation is too weak and the change in the body is small, the next appointment cannot be made.)
By knowing more about the patient’s body, you will be able to provide treatments that suit the patient’s body without hesitation.
Difficulty level 2: Accurately understand the symptoms and reactions that appear in the body, pick up points and stimulate them
