I have had acupuncture before. Is it all the same?
No. My techniques are Traditional Japanese and most acupuncturists in Europe use Chinese acupuncture techniques.  There are variations in approach within Japanese acupuncture techniques. If you have tried acupuncture before from non Japanese and a) it didn't achieve the results you were hoping for or b) you didn't like it, I would still recommend that you try my treatment. Likewise, if my treatment doesn't work for you, it doesn't mean that another acupuncturist's approach won't be successful. If you have had many treatments with several different acupuncturists and your problem continues, you may want to try a different treatment modality. It would also be prudent to consult a physician (preferably a specialist) to make sure there is no serious illness behind your complaint.
