About Spinal Acupuncture Therapy – JAPAN ACUPUNCTURE

Spinal acupuncture therapy aims to remove muscle knots around the spine using acupuncture and align the misalignment of the vertebrae. Muscles around the spine exhibit reactions of various organs depending on the spinal level; for example, the second cervical vertebra is related to the “eyes,” the sixth thoracic vertebra is related to the “stomach,” and the fifth lumbar vertebra is related to the “bladder.”

When organs are under stress, muscle knots can form in areas related to those organs. These muscle knots distort the vertebrae and interfere with the function of the organs. By loosening the muscle knots with acupuncture, the vertebrae can be aligned, and the function of the organs can be restored.

Therefore, in spinal acupuncture therapy, the main focus is on loosening muscle knots around the spine and aligning the vertebrae. It also addresses misalignments in the limbs, abdomen, and head that are interconnected. As the vertebrae align, not only back pain and shoulder stiffness but also unpleasant symptoms associated with autonomic nervous system imbalances can be alleviated.

Indications include symptoms such as headaches, dizziness, ear fullness, tinnitus, auditory hypersensitivity, glaucoma, persistent cough, shortness of breath, throat constriction, palpitations, gastrointestinal symptoms, frequent urination, cystitis, constipation, PMS, infertility, breech presentation, threatened miscarriage, pain in the neck, shoulders, back, knees, and limbs, depression, panic attacks, autonomic nervous system disorders, orthostatic control disorder, menopausal symptoms, and more.
