Non-Insertive Acupuncture: Shakuju Therapy
What is non-insertive acupuncture?
Non-insertive acupuncture is the cornerstone of my practice because, in my experience, it most effectively targets the root causes, rather than simply treating symptoms.
With this style of acupuncture, the needle is applied gently to the surface of the skin, giving a slight tickling or brushing sensation. It is designed to not break the skin. Due to its non-invasive style, it provides a number of benefits:
- Results-oriented with minimal stimulation
- Good for anyone, including:
o Those uncomfortable with needles, such as children
o Elderly patients
o Those weakened by chronic conditions
Shakuju Therapy is by far the most effective form of acupuncture I have encountered in my 14 years of experience, and is the foundation of all my treatments.
I also provide traditional insertive acupuncture, health coaching, and other complementary therapies to enhance the effects of non-insertive acupuncture treatments.
Traditional Insertive Acupuncture
While non-insertive acupuncture is my specialty, I also perform traditional acupuncture.
What is traditional insertive acupuncture?
The most obvious difference between insertive and non-insertive acupuncture is that the insertive style actually penetrates the skin. This is the type of treatment most people associate with acupuncture.
Traditional acupuncture uses hair-thin needles that break the skin in order to stimulate strategic points on the body. Its goal is the same as its non-insertive counterpart: to redirect energy flow and restore balance.
