Our therapists practice Japanese acupuncture, which is a more gentle approach than the usual Chinese acupuncture. It is based on accuracy instead of heavy stimulation. The Japanese style of acupuncture generally uses much finer needles (some of the needles we use here are the thickness of a hair!). We also find that, when done correctly, Japanese acupuncture is usually much more effective and long-lasting than the Chinese style.
The combination of gentle, accurate, and shallow insertion, together with finer needles, means that you will normally feel little or nothing from them. In fact, most people find the treatments relaxing, and some even fall asleep during a treatment!
