Tele-Acupuncture - Scientific Long Distance Treatment
I'm still here to help you!
Due to the spread of the Coronavirus infection, you must feel very stressful physically and mentally.
Since I closed my clinic on March 21st, it has not been sure yet when I can start my acupuncture clinic again.
But I’m still here to provide you with "Treatment".
As an alternative, I decided to provide Tele-Acupuncture (Telemedicine Treatment).
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 and the theory of acupuncture medicine.
Tele-Acupuncture involves two parts: Scan and Treatment
When I scan your body, I use my eyes. When my eyes come to unhealthy area of your body, my body receive the energy and gets affected by that like my muscle becomes tight. I use this information to decide where to treat.
Treatment has 3 sections.
Regulating 7 Chakras
Chakras are the main energy centers of the body and important acupuncture points. So when I directly treat patients in my clinic, I start with releasing this center line first.
When Chakras are too open or too closed, that affects the body parts around the related Chakras. For example, if the 4th Chakra which is located on your chest is too closed or too open, you could have lung problems or heart problems.
So Tele-Acupuncture balances the opening and closing of 7 Chakras first. Only by this treatment, some of the pain and/or tightness often disappears.
Regulating Internal Organs
After regulating 7 Chakras, I scan and treat the internal organs which are located in the both sides of the center line. This concept is the same as acupuncture.
When you have any healthy issues like low back pain or neck pain, it can be caused by the problem of organs' energy.
Unblocking stagnated energy
I scan the body including the area where you have pain or other health issues and remove stagnated energy or supply energy to improve the flow of the energy in the area, 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.
The differences between Tele-Acupuncture and Acupuncture at the clinic
In Tele-Acupuncture, I use my eyes instead of hands to scan the body and I use finger-needles instead of metal-needles to treat.
In the sense of removing stagnated energy and supplying required energy, Tele-Acupuncture is the same as Acupuncture at the clinic.
The advantage of Tele-Acuuncture is being able to treat the space around the body as well.

Fig. 1 is an example of how to set up your device. When you lean your device against something, it is better to shoot your body from below your abdomen to show me the required area for the treatment.
3. I will FaceTime, Skype to you at the time of your appointment, or in the case of Zoom, I will email you an invitation.
4. Before and after the treatment, I may ask you to move your body to check the pain or the range of motion, so you need some space to move around you.

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 of 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.

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.
40s Female with neck pain
During my session, my body became more relaxed, easing my pain. The Tele-Acupuncture allowed me to practice mindfulness in my own home while receiving my treatment. After my treatment, I noticed my shoulder and chest had improved including my flexibility in my neck.

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.
Why can Tele-Acupuncture treat patients through video chat?
This treatment method doesn't need some kind of supernatural power special ability because Tele-Acupuncture is scientific treatment method which requires visual information through the screen of video.
If you are an acupuncturist who practice a style of acupuncture that always uses pulse diagnosis or other muscle tests, the treatment method could be naturally used at the clinic.
Tele-Acupuncture is Scientific Long Distance Treatment because...
All of our body parts have its own frequency (vibration) like the frequency of the muscle is 80 Hz, the frequency of the bone is 20 Hz.
When the frequency of the body part is too high or too low, the body part is not in healthy condition.
The frequency of the body part can be detected by our eyes, which are the most sensitive sensory organs, through the screen.
If we receive the unhealthy frequency through our eyes, that can distort our body.
Actually and surprisingly the unhealthy frequency changes the shape of our body, leading to weaker muscle strength.
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.
So as long as I can see you over the screen, the distance doesn't matter.
