  • What qualifications does an acupuncturist have?
    An acupuncturist is a profession that can be held by a person who has obtained both the national qualifications of ``acupuncture therapist'' and ``acupuncturist'' certified by the Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare, and uses acupuncture and moxibustion to treat pressure points throughout the body. This qualification allows you to improve symptoms through stimulation.
  • Does acupuncture hurt?
    The needles we use at our hospital are thin needles with a diameter of 0.10 to 0.20 mm. You will hardly feel any pain. At our hospital, we use acupuncture needles made by Seirin Co., Ltd. (made in Japan). We take every precaution regarding the hygiene of acupuncture. Please feel free to receive treatment.
  • Is moxibustion hot?
    Basically, at our clinic, we use moxibustion to give you a warm and pleasant feeling. Some people feel the heat of the heat, so we carefully adjust the treatment to prevent burns.
  • I have been prescribed medicine at the hospital, but is it okay to have acupuncture treatment?
    Basically there is no problem. It has also been reported that a combination of medicine and acupuncture has good therapeutic effects.
  • Are there any side effects after receiving acupuncture treatment?
    Acupuncture treatment does not have the addictive side effects that occur with some drugs, so please feel free to visit us. However, if you are receiving acupuncture treatment for the first time, you may experience temporary symptoms such as sluggishness and fatigue. In Chinese medicine, this is called the ``dizziness phenomenon'' or ``improvement reaction,'' and it is considered to be evidence that the treatment is working, and positive effects can be expected as the treatment progresses. It will disappear in half a day to a day, but if you feel anxious or concerned, please feel free to contact our clinic. The practitioner will give you appropriate advice.
  • How often should I visit the hospital?
    In the case of acute symptoms (such as a strained lower back), it is better to concentrate on short-term therapy (every 2-3 days) to see a faster reduction in pain. For chronic symptoms (symptoms that have existed for many years), it is best to treat the treatment once or twice a week, and gradually increase the interval between visits as the symptoms change. Other treatments vary depending on the disease, but treatment is generally once a week or four times a month. After symptoms improve, many people receive treatment once every 3 to 4 weeks to manage their condition.
  • Can I take a bath after receiving acupuncture?
    Blood circulation improves after receiving acupuncture treatment. If you take a bath immediately after your treatment, you will be more likely to feel hot, so we recommend waiting at least an hour before taking a bath. Please note that the same applies if you take a sauna or bath before your treatment.
  • What kind of clothes should I wear?
    There is no problem if you come to the hospital in casual clothes. If you are concerned about wrinkles in your clothes or pants, feel free to bring clothes or shorts that will expose the treatment area. Although the number is limited, we also rent out treatment clothes. If you are interested, please ask the staff.
  • Can I exercise immediately after treatment?
    Depending on the symptoms, We recommend that you take as much rest as possible immediately after treatment. If you are an athlete and are attending practice or a game, please let us know.
