Acupuncture is the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points along the body. It stimulates the nervous system to release endorphins and other chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain, changing the experience of pain and regulating the body. Through continuous treatments, it may help the body return to its natural balance, promoting healing.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises acupuncture as a safe and effective treatment for a number of conditions and ailments, and works well along-side Western Medical practices.
We only use single use, sterile needles. For the comfort of our clients only finest Korean or Japanese needles are used.
Kiiko Style – Japanese Acupuncture
Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) acupuncture utilizes a systematic, palpatory method which is designed to provide instant feedback. When using this system, a KMS practitioner follows a palpation sequence which, both establishes a diagnosis and suggests several treatment options which might be effective for treating a particular patient.
Kiiko Matsumoto Style addresses the patient’s health issues from several levels. By looking more deeply into the structural and or constitutional imbalances, which often underlie a patient’s symptomatic complaints, the practitioner is able to assist in a more complete and lasting healing.
It is precisely this holistic approach which gives a KMS practitioner the ability to help patients with the most complex issues. Often by seeing the patient’s problem from this broader perspective, the practitioner can solve difficult cases.
