Kiiko Matsumoto Style
You are here because you’re looking for an effective and safe option to support your health concerns. This has to lead you to consider Japanese acupuncture.
Japanese acupuncture shares the same principles and holistic understanding of harmonious health originally described in Chinese fundamental classics since their introduction in Japan, back in the 6th Century.
Masters such as Kiyoshi Nagano developed a style based on thorough palpation, very gentle and safe techniques, such as contact needling and rice-grain size moxibustion stimulation. Abdominal (hara) palpation has also become a central diagnostic modality of this practice. This approach makes acupuncture even more conveniently suited to the treatment of children and sensitive patients.
There are many styles of Japanese acupuncture, the style of KMS acupuncture, is a system developed by Kiiko Matsumoto. We practice Japanese acupuncture with an emphasis on the Kiiko Matsumoto style because it is very gentle but profound. The treatments we offer are always individualized to meet your current needs and results are experienced in real‐time. When you leave, there is no doubt something positive has happened to support your well‐being.
Kiiko Matsumoto Style Acupuncture is a palpation-based Japanese acupuncture style, which utilizes a systematic, palpation method that provides instant feedback to the practitioner. This feedback is used to assess the patient’s presentation and monitor the effects of the treatment while the patient is still on the treatment table.
How does Acupuncture Work?
Western science knows that acupuncture triggers the production of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers. Acupuncture also positively affects the endocrine and nervous systems, helping the body to achieve a state of balance or homeostasis. In Western medicine, however, the body is understood to function in terms of biochemical interactions, and the treatment is generally biochemical, using drugs. It is therefore difficult to understand acupuncture using concepts derived from Western allopathic medicine.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
Acupuncture needles are extremely thin. They are inserted quickly and shallowly. People are usually amazed that they feel so little. Only sterile disposable needles are used.
How many treatments will I need?
That depends upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a single treatment for an acute condition. A series of five to fifteen treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Some degenerative conditions may require many treatments over time.
