What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture (Hari) and moxibustion (Kyu) have a long history. The technique was first developed in China many thousands of years ago, and it has been the basis of Eastern Medicine since that time. In our clinic, we offer a delicate Japanese-style acupuncture treatment, led by highly experienced therapists who have globally recognized qualifications in oriental medical therapy. For more information, please check the staff talk.
What is the effect of Shiatsu/Acupressure?
Our Shiatsu therapists have personally developed a variety of individual techniques work in our clinic. Shiatsu/Acupressure treatment will balance the energy in the body, eliminating stiffness and swelling, reduce sensitivity to cold and reduce stress. A popular treatment for a wide range of patients, in particular busy business people, who often have physical exhaustion, or who have nervous symptoms, will feel complete relaxation. This in turn is restorative and energizing. It also has reduced menstrual and other forms of chronic pain.
Furthermore Shiatsu/acupressure and acupuncture compliment each other perfectly. Indeed it is often helpful to experience both techniques in the same session as this results in enhanced effect
These treatments enhance the body’s natural energy flow, thereby enabling the natural healing power which we all possess in our own bodies.
What is the manipulative treatment of Seitai?
It is a unique, alternative Japanese therapy first developed for use by Samurai warriors to deal with sprains and dislocations and minor fractures.
Seitai was later further developed by Kiyoshi Kato in the 19th Century and is a combination of Shiatsu and Manipulation techniques which work on the skeletal and soft tissue structures of the body. It is a new practice base on the ancient practice of ‘bone setting’.
Unlike chiropractic treatment, the technique of Seitei involves pressing the entire muscle fibers and stimulating the body through acupressure points or ‘tsubo’s’ with the thumbs, fingers and elbows of the practice. These ‘MASTER’ points provide direct stimulation to the internal organs and systems of the body.
The literal translation of ‘Seitai’ is ‘to put the body into good order’. Seitai treatment can improve posture thus enabling the body to function at its optimum level. This treatment can result in the possibility of avoiding developing of symptoms such as a hernia, severe back pain or sciatic neuralgia. It is also effective in the improvement of neck and spinal conditions, post- natal hip issues and tinnitus (ear noise) by the manipulation of jaw bone.
Seitai treatment can be effective in shaping legs by pelvic correction and works to restore skeletal frame damage through the manipulation of soft tissue.
It is also a very popular and effective treatment for spots injuries.
After treatment clients feel invigorated, warm and clear-headed as the body begins to employ its natural energy to heal itself.

A TECHNIQUE THAT WILL INCREASE RANGE OF MOTION AND FUNCTION
Functional release cupping works by applying silicone cups in relevant areas using aromatic oil and body cream. The cup is placed where the restriction is felt for a few minutes.
The technique creates suction which has an effect on underlying tissue, particularly the fascia. As a result, tissues begin to soften, increasing the range of movement in the joint or surrounding area. This helps release fascia adhesion and provides an improvement in movement restrictions and muscle pains.
Please check the video under Info to see the treatment.
USED FOR COSMETIC AND ALSO HEALTH REASONS.
Acupuncture needles are inserted into the muscles of the face. The process stimulates natural healing mechanisms within the skin and dermis. This has the effect of increasing blood flow and lymph circulation which in turn stimulates oxygen flow through the blood vessels. The facial acupuncture results in a gentle plumping and shaping of the face, helping to reduce wrinkles and sagging. The health benefits are the relaxation of the muscles in the forehead and neck which can reduce such symptoms eyestrain and migraine.

“I've been going to My Natural Clinic for many years and can't recommend them enough. Friendly and professional staff and very efficient. I've always had the same therapist Mr Atsushi and my nickname for him is Mr Magic Fingers. It doesn't matter how stressed I am, I always leave feeling like I'm floating on air.”

“Mr Oban, brilliant. I've been going here for the last 18 years. I walk in with pain, and well worth it. All of the staff that I have come across, are very professional and friendly.”
“I was recommended to this clinic by a Japanese friend (I would never do acupuncture without a recommendation!) My original practitioner was good then he moved back to Japan and I started with Hamano who I've been with for a few years. He's a real master - he has a gentle technique that combines shiatsu and acupuncture that for me is very effective. I never feel any pain and he always works wonders. I strongly recommend him.”

How Does Acupuncture For The Face Work? Please check the FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE VIDEO under INFO.
Acupuncture of the face broadly falls under the following two categories:
facial acupuncture and cosmetic acupuncture.
Very fine acupuncture needles are slowly inserted into the various muscle points within the face and surrounding areas. The needles create micro injuries/’wounds’ which are called positive microtraumas. When your body senses these micro-injuries/ wounds, it goes into repair mode by stimulating several crucial healing mechanisms.
By increasing the local blood and lymph circulation to the face, thereby increasing the oxygen flow which nourishes the skin and accelerates the removal of cellular waste, and restores your overall health and wellbeing.
The positive microtraumas also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin *which are proteins that help keep skin young, improve skin tone/texture and elasticity, thereby smoothing lines, minimising wrinkles, and enhancing firmness and volume of the skin.
＊Collagen is the most common protein found in the body. Elastin and collagen are both proteins found in the skin. They work together to give skin its texture and shape. Skin with healthy levels of both collagen and elastin isn't just more youthful; it's stronger.
Facial Acupuncture is not just a cosmetic treatment. Facial acupuncture has been proven to improve your overall wellbeing. When the sympathetic nervous system is overactive due to daily stress and fatigue, the blood vessels in the facial muscles constrict, reducing blood flow and causing the muscles to become tense. Facial acupuncture can help to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system activity, improve blood flow, and relax the facial muscles. It can also help to improve the symptoms of other complaints such as muscle stiffness, stomach problems, headaches, allergies, sleeping disorders, digestion, and even anxiety, irregular periods, and menopause.
Benefits of Facial Acupuncture
The prevention of Bags around the eyes, drooping eyelids and sagging skin with lines and wrinkles around the face and neck:
As the facial muscles lose strength and firmness, they are no longer able to lift the skin, thereby causing bags around the eyes, drooping eyelids, sagging skin with lines and wrinkles around the face and neck. The wrinkles between the eyebrows are often due to over-tension of the muscles and are mainly caused by fatigue, stress and eye strain. The treatment increases the production collagen and elastin, and stimulates the metabolism, around the facial area, thereby reducing wrinkles and sagging, and firming and toning up the skin.
Dark circles or Loss of brightness
The reduction of blood flow and lymph circulation due to stiffness on the face and stress can lead to loss of brightness and dark circles can develop on the face. Dark circles can also be caused by eyestrain. The treatment stimulates local circulation of blood and lymph to the face, improves muscle tone, encourages tightening of the pores and brightens the eyes. It greatly reduces stress evident in the face, bringing out the beauty within. Those who are prone to dark circles may also suffer from chronic shoulder stiffness. By increasing the blood flow and oxygen level around the face and neck, the stiff shoulder and neck can be also improved.
Imperfections of skin such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea
According to Oriental medicine, there are two main types of skin problems:
The first is caused by a blockage of the blood flow and the decrease of metabolism, resulting in large pimples and eczema. The main causes are stress and excessive drinking of alcohol and eating oily foods. The latter, is caused by inadequate nourishment and poor blood flow to the facial skin, thereby weakening the skin's immune system and causing various facial problems. This can lead to rashes and eczema.
Facial Acupuncture is effective in improving many imperfections of the skin such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, rosacea, etc. The treatment is practically painless, and can be very relaxing relaxing. Each treatment will be tailored to your individual needs.
