Acupuncture

DSCN4623 copyCourtney Hill Wulsin primarily utilizes Japanese Style Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs in her practice. If you had acupuncture in the past and you don’t know if you experienced Chinese or Japanese Style here is an easy way to differentiate. Japanese Style involves abdominal palpation and pulse diagnosis and relies heavily on the use of moxa (an herb that when burned builds qi and blood). Japanese Style uses fewer smaller needles and sometimes uses non-insertive needles called Taishins. Chinese Style looks at the tongue and the pulse in addition to the information coming from the patient. Chinese Style uses a larger quantity of larger-sized needles and retains the needles for a significant duration. If you have ever had needles in for 30-40 minutes you probably have received a Chinese Style treatment.

Japanese Style allows for a deeper level of healing without as much initial intensity. There is significantly less pain with needle insertion, treatments are usually not as physically taxing and the style caters to those who are more sensitive in nature, such as elderly patients, needle-sensitive patients and children. Treatments produce deeper, more holistic benefits for the patient in addition to removing symptoms.
