Koki Kawanami serves Acupuncture treatment around Yokohama city in Japan. Koki specializes in Traditional Japanese Acupuncture from Japan.
Japanese Acupuncture focuses on gentle needling techniques, moxibustion therapy and palpation.The use of palpation is a key factor for diagnosing a patient. This is a very subtle technique that was developed out of the Edo period where visually impaired individuals were responsible for acupuncture and moxibustion treatment. Skillful palpation is key to successful diagnosis and treatment as a Japanese Acupuncturist.
Koki Is currently studying eagerly Functional Medicine for years. He is concerned with the underlying imbalances or dysfunctions of diseases.
