Qi (energy)



Map and hours



A more modern form, the Japanese acupuncturists use even finer needles with Ion Pumping Cords (IPC) at each extremity so that the therapist can connect the energy points.

The Ion Pumping Cord contains a semiconducter at one extremity permitting the energy to flow in one direction only ; for example : it often helps to relieve, recent acute pain of a Yang nature (inflammatory type).

Abdominal auscultation is of assistance in establishing the diagnosis. The needles are inserted very superficially and the therapist does not wait for the « qi » (energy) sensation since the Japanese philosophy is based on the concept that energy circulates everywhere and in every part of the body.

This method has the advantage of being painfree and highly effective.

It may be appropriate to  use a combination of Chinese and Japanese acupuncture at the same consultation; for example, if you suffer from neckache, shoulder pain, insomnia or heartburn.
