Japanese Acupuncture

Kiiko Matsumoto Style (KMS) Acupuncture

Japanese Acupuncture is very effective for many different health conditions because it focuses on the entire body and adjusts to meet the needs of each individual. It uses the smallest gauge needles, which are virtually painless.

Japanese Acupuncture has a deep 1500-year tradition.

Chinese Acupuncture

The Chinese Acupuncture is typically what people are aware of in the West.

Japanese Acupuncture has been practiced for over 1500 years and has its roots in the Chinese form, but there are differences.

Japanese Acupuncture treats root causes and emphasizes the entire body rather than a single symptom. As a result, patients find treatments to be effective and long-lasting.

I asked a friend to describe elements of an artful life…

What do you consider the elements of an Artful Life?

You might think of the good things in life, like family, health, and love. One of my friends said that for him, an Artful Life included music.

Music that’s simple yet deep. Complex in how he is touched by it, yet it brings satisfaction beyond words. It stays with him and adds to his appreciation of his life.

For me, an artful life comprises deep conversations, music, books, love and family, truth and beauty.

As an acupuncturist, I’m interested in the whole person and how we might restore the well-being of body and mind.

The spirit of the approach that I learned from Kiiko Matsumoto and practitioners who work with her tradition and insights is curiosity and respect.

I practice the art of acupuncture to restore and revive health and vitality.

I’m interested in the root of the problem.
The heart of the matter.
