We Treat Each Individual Uniquely

We emphasize empowering our patients to make sound lifestyle choices.

From Kazuo Tateishi

I utilize a Japanese style needling technique which incorporates gentle insertion of small thin needles and/or non-insertion methods.

Although this painless needling technique brings about relatively slow and gradual therapeutic effect, it has been demonstrated that overall therapeutic outcome can be profound and long lasting. It also helps my patients relax and immerse themselves in ‘zen’ moment while facilitating their bodies’ own healing and rejuvenating process.

Also my treatment principle is founded on resolving underlying ‘root’ cause(s) of the disease. By identifying the relationship between symptom(s) such as pain, and the health state of internal organs and their network systems, I’d be able to assess how to treat the whole body as well as the chief complaint(s)/symptoms(s) the patient registers.

I strongly believe in the human body’s natural inherent ability to prevail against any odds. It’s my passion to support and strengthen it.

Gentle Insertion and Non-insertion Acupuncture

We adhere to a traditional gentle Japanese style of acupuncture that works differently.

We use both gentle insertion and non-insertion methods to deliver a gentle and painless needling procedure found to ease a range of ailments, offer deep relaxation, and deliver long-lasting therapeutic effects.

Funamizu-style Teishin Acupuncture Therapy

Gentle, pain-free, and non-intrusive, Funamizu-style Teishin Therapy shares the same principles as acupuncture, but uses a round-ended metal instrument instead of sharp needles.

Toyohari Needleless Acupuncture Therapy

This unique form of acupuncture has helped many of our clients enjoy lasting relief from chronic pain, stress disorders, gynecological issues, digestive problems, allergies, emotional turmoil, and much more.

What Our Patients Are Saying

After beginning to experience more fatigue, especially after a long day at work, and more joint pain from lifting weights at the gym, I decided to make an appointment to see Kaz. He checked my pulse, and accordingly, used Japanese style acupuncture. After about two sessions, I noticed a significant difference.

John Lai

Since working with Kaz I’ve noticed such a difference in my overall sense of wellbeing. After his treatments I feel relaxed, balanced and energized. I sleep better and have less body pain. Kaz is kind, supportive and talented. I have seen many acupuncturists over the years and would highly recommend seeing him.

Michele McCabe

I started my weekly treatments with Kaz in May 2018. I am happy to report that my hypothyroidism symptoms that were making daily life challenging have gone away. I so happy to have more energy and no more cold feet.
