I'm still here to help you!
Due to the spread of the Coronavirus infection, you must feel very stressful physically and mentally.
I closed my clinic 3 weeks ago and it is not sure when I can start my acupuncture clinic again.
But I’m still here to help you.
As an alternative, I decided to provide Tele-Acupuncture.
I’ve been using this treatment method to treat my parents who live on opposite sides of the earth where is 10,000 km (6,250 miles) away from Salem, MA.
Now I would like to share this treatment method to help you improve your physical and mental stress.
What is Tele-Acupuncture?
Tele-Acupuncture provides you with not only consultation like advising you what to do or what to eat provided by Telemedicine or Telehealth, but also treatment at a distance using visual information.
Regulating 7 Chakras
Chakras are the main energy centers of the body and important acupuncture points. When they are too open or too closed, that affects the body parts around the related Chakras. Tele-Acupuncture balances the opening and closing of 7 Chakras.
Unblocking stagnated energy
I scan the body including the area where you have pain or other health issues and remove stagnated energy to improve the flow of the energy, leading to relieving pain, tightness or uncomfortable feeling.
This treatment method is performed through video chat, using the method used at the clinic when I usually diagnose, decide acupuncture points to treat or homework points.
Impressions from the patients who experienced Tele-Acupuncture a step ahead of you
50s Female with stress, neck pain
I want to thank you for doing telephone acupuncture on me today . Since we have to adhere to proper social distancing to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus, I really appreciate you accommodating me with telephone acupuncture. It really helped me relieve soreness and stiffness that I was having in my neck. It also relieved stress that I have been experiencing at this time. Thanks again!
40s Male with tightness and pain in his neck and upper body
I could certainly feel the energy flow as my upper body and neck was very tense and tight on the left side through my trap area. In just a 20 min. session I was more relaxed, I was breathing better and more importantly my neck muscles on the left side started to lengthen as I decompressed.
The session was definitely beneficial and I highly recommend it!
60s Female with stress, dryness and pain in her eyes
I thought today’s tele-Acupuncture session went well. I didn’t know what to expect, so I was a little anxious at first. Since I am very open to the healing effects of acupuncture and qigong, I’m not sure from just one session if the calmness I felt was indeed from tele-acupuncture. I did notice, though, after returning from a three mile walk, I did not have to put eye drops in my eyes. Also, my mood has improved.
Why can Tele-Acupuncture treat patients through video chat?
This treatment method is not some kind of supernatural power but scientific treatment method (it means everybody can make it happen if they learn the method), so it is necessary to have visual information to diagnose and treat.
Scientific explanation of Tele-Acupuncture is:
All of our body parts have its own frequency (vibration) like the frequency of the muscle is 80 Hz. If the frequency of the body part is too high or too low, that is not healthy condition. The condition of the frequency can be detected by our eyes, which is the most sensitive sensory organ, through the screen. When we receive the unhealthy frequency through our eyes, that can distort our body. So I scan the body with my eyes, detect the body part with unhealthy frequency, recognize the distortion in my body and improve the frequency with finger-needles through the screen.
As long as I can see you over the screen, the distance doesn’t matter.
What are the advantages of Tele-Acupuncture?
You don’t need to travel.
You can save money on gas, parking, and public transportation, and you don’t waste time traveling or risk running into a traffic jam that makes you late for your appointment, or more importantly, when you feel sick and can’t go out, you can have treatment at home.
You don’t need to take time off of work.
You can schedule your appointment during a break, or before or after work.
You don’t need to worry about child or elderly care issues.
Many of us have the responsibility for caring for children or older adults. Finding alternative care to visit the clinic can be difficult and expensive. Bringing them along can be stressful or impractical. Tele-Acupuncture solves this challenge by allowing you to have treatment while upholding your family responsibilities.
You can sleep right after the treatment.
There are patients who want to sleep after the treatment. If you are at home, you can sleep right after the treatment as much as you need.
You can have treatment wherever you are.
You can have treatment anywhere if you have your device and the Internet connection. You can be opposite sides of the earth for traveling.

If the world hadn't turned into this kind of situation, I would have never thought I would provide Tele-Acupuncture that I had only used for my parents in Japan.
But to tell you the truth, I’m the one who is surprised the most at the effect of Tele-Acupuncture as much as I’m starting to think that I might not be necessary to be an acupuncturist using real needles at the clinic, though I know physical touch is a very important part of healing modalities.
Until I can start to treat you in-person, I will try my best to help you, using Tele-Acupuncture.
If you are interested in this treatment method even only a little bit, please give it a try.
Even if you are still skeptical to this method but would like to support my business at this tough time, please give it a try and feel what will happen to you.
I’m looking forward to seeing you over the screen.
