Practice of Japanese Acupuncture and Bodywork
Although the foundations of most acupuncture styles are the same, they have evolved quite differently. Japanese acupuncture differs in its delicate and precise nature. This is primarily due to the fact that the leading figures in its development have been blind. This delicate nature can be seen throughout the practice of Japanese Acupuncture. The needles are far finer (using needles barely thicker than a human hair). They are inserted often no deeper than 2 or 3mm, with minimal stimulation. In some instances, there is no needle insertion. On occasion a treatment may consist of just bodywork/massage.
Acupuncture is one way to restore balance to the system and offer symptom relief. Bodywork is another. Bodywork is an umbrella term that refers to many touch therapies. I practice ANMA and Shiatsu. Anma is a style of Japanese massage. This is used in every treatment. In Japanese the word anma translates to massage. It is the oldest known form of traditional asian bodywork and includes stretching, pressure and massage. Shiatsu is another form of Asian Bodywork that evolved from Anma. Just like Acupuncture, it focuses on the body’s energentic pathways called meridians. Shiatsu therapists are trained to feel the body’s condition through the hands. The imbalanced meridians are then stimulated using thumb, finger and palm pressure.
