four diagnostic methods
approach to the root and the leaves
Once your type is decided, it is already set which points to work on with needle and moxa. The dosage of stimuli must be carefully controlled for individuals. Working on both underlying cause and the development of the disease, it can be efficiently treated and will work for relapse prevention.
Using inspection, auscultation/olfaction, inquiry, and palpation, your body and the condition is analyzed as a certain type called 証 meaning proof, evidence, or mark.
Shinyodo sees great importance of pulse taking as in palpation because it reflects the heat/cold in the body rather directly.
left needles on back
There are a meridian on back to pull qi and blood down to legs. We put about 20 needles along with the meridian so that the qi and blood that is balanced earlier will now be in a good circulation. We let the patient rest with needles left on back for 10~20 minutes.
There are variety of moxibustion. Pictured here is large ones that warm up inside but cool down outside by making the surface sweat. And, ones smaller than a rice grain are used to melt the hard points in meridian so the qi and blood will flow better to warm up the place that's cold, and cool down the place that's hot, etc. More kinds of moxibustion are used for the suitable treatment.
after the therapy
We're serving blend tea good for the season and patients condition.
