What is Japanese Style Acupuncture? Japanese style acupuncture uses a gentler technique and even thinner needles. Japanese Acupuncture diagnostic assessment is mainly by feeling the abdomen, back and other pulses along the meridian system. In traditional Chinese medicine, meridians are paths in which the life energy known as “qi” flows.
Japanese style acupuncture is completely different from the traditional style acupuncture. The main differences between Japanese acupuncture and traditional Chinese style acupuncture are that Japanese style acupuncture uses smaller and thinner needles. Japanese also use metal or plastic tubes in order to guide the needles into skin which helps with accuracy and also reduces pain. Japanese acupuncture practitioners rely more on touch than sight to decide entry points for the needles.
