Acupuncture and moxibustion treatments is called whole-body treatment (holistic treatment).
Acupuncture and moxibustion are natural therapies that aim to treat disorders by enhancing the body's own natural healing powers. This process is achieved by stimulating the body through the insertion of metal needles into acupuncture points or the warming of moxa placed on acupuncture points. Acupuncture and moxibustion are also recognized as complementary and alternative medicine that maintain health. These therapies activate the immune system, by improving blood circulation, homeostatic functions, and stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system.

In Japan, Shiatsu therapists must obtain the national qualification "Anma massage and Shiatsu practitioner" to practice the treatment as a profession. Our practitioners are qualified.
Anma is not as well known as "shiatsu", which is well recognised abroad. in Japan, both shiatsu and anma techniques are elaborately combined to enhance the therapeutic effect of the treatment.
Basically, both treatments are carried out over clothes or towels, and although there are some differences in technique, they share the same idea that "find and treat the unwell parts of the body while examining the body with the hands".

The literal translation of Seitai in Japanese is to bring the body to balance, In good health, the body can be considered as existing in a "Seitai" state. Seitai treatment can improve posture thus enabling the body is functioning at its optimum level. It works on the principle that any pain in the body is representative of an underlying disharmony within the body. Such disharmonies are often a result of organ weakness and disease or poor posture and unhealthy lifestyle habits.
The treatment applies pressure to trigger points in order to relieve pain and discomfort as well as joint adjustment to realign the body and massage away muscular tension, allowing the body to relax. These points are selected because of their ability to quickly provide direct stimulation to the internal organs and systems of the body. This improves the functioning of the musculoskeletal system. Clients often feel invigorated, warm and clear-headed as the body begins to re-address its imbalances.
For diseases such as rheumatism, hernia, arthritis, severe back pain or sciatic neuralgia or pain due to sports injuries, this therapy can be suitable. It is also effective in the improvement of the neck and spinal conditions, post-natal hip issues, and tinnitus (ear noise) by the manipulation of the jaw bone.

Cupping works by applying cups in relevant areas.
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 see here for details.
