Japanese Style Acupuncture

Chinese acupuncture and Japanese acupuncture differs in the size of the needles used on patients. Japanese needles tend to be a smaller gauge, while also typically being sharper than Chinese needles. Many say that this is the reason for a gentler, more superficial needling with less pain on the patient. Chinese needles are bit of a wider gauge, and they promote more of an aggressive needling. Japanese acupuncture is one of a few major styles of acupuncture. Since the Japanese were introduced to Chinese Medicine and the integrated theories of acupuncture, bodywork, and herbal medicine in the 6th century, practitioners have developed many unique theories and techniques. In general terms Japanese acupuncture is unique in its efficiency and precision. Techniques often are directed at using the minimal amount of stimulation to attain the greatest results. Much of the Traditional Chinese Medicine theory is still used and the majority of the acupuncture points are used with only a few modifications.
