Japanese Acupuncture & Moxa

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” – Anais Nin

Acupuncture is proven to be effective in treating a wide variety of conditions. Positive results have been experienced in areas ranging from fertility to sports injuries or addiction to anti-ageing display the versatility of this ancient art form.

The power of Acupuncture lies in its ability to improve your energy levels, promote health, happiness and calmness while encouraging that inner and outer glow. With modern research now confirming the benefits that have been known in the East for thousands of years, Acupuncture is more widely accepted than ever as an effective primary or complementary therapy. As an added bonus, health rebates are available on treatments through selected Health Funds.

Japanese Acupuncture is very gentle, enjoyable and relaxing. If you are fearful of needles then this is for you. It is quite different to other forms of Acupuncture that you may have experienced for several reasons; much thinner needles are used, “live” points that feel tender to touch are stimulated with ultra fine needles.

The thinnest needles possible and applying Acupressure just before the needle is inserted, results in less pain and more comfort. So if you’ve been too scared to try Acupuncture until now, this is your opportunity to give it a try with a very gentle and effective technique.

Moxibustion is heat therapy, the herb Mugwort Artemesia (commonly known as Moxa) is burnt over Acupuncture points. This helps to clear stagnation in your body and can also help nourish your system. You will feel deeply relaxed as it melts away stagnation.

The ear is also a microcosm of the entire body. Auriculartherapy is an acupuncture microsystem that diagnoses and treats physical, emotional and neurological disharmony. Points on the ear correlate with organs and functions. Many of these points have been validated by using fMRI of the brain. When a point on the ear is stimulated, the corresponding area of the brain lights up on MRI.

Dr. Nogier, a French neuroscientist and acupuncturist shed light on this correspondence between the ear and body. In recognition of his research, the Chinese described him as the “Father of Modern Ear Acupuncture”.
