Japanese Acupuncture, in its classical form, is a characteristic component of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Like its Chinese counterparts, Japanese acupuncture has the ability to open energy channels within the body relieving tension and curing aliments as well as restoring and maintaining overall health.
Hot Stone Therapy
Japanese Stone Therapy is an ancient healing art originating over 2000 years ago. This unique form of therapy uses Basalt Volcanic stones. It is a deeply relaxing technique which greatly benefits healing.
Acupressure is the stimulation and manipulation of certain acupressure points located on the meridians or pathways that carry Qi (energy that flows along the meridians) and blood to internal organs.
