Acupuncture has various style, techniques and styles, originating from China, Japan and other Asian countries. Acupuncture can also be needless, namely Teishin acupuncture. However, in this article, we are going to focus on acupuncture therapy, which is possibly the most people-centric, and that’s Toyohari Acupuncture. Generally, all forms of acupuncture focus on the person and their aura, otherwise known as QI. This particular type of acupuncture largely focuses on the patient’s direct perception and treating the QI.
Moreover, this practice is not as well known as the “standard” acupuncture therapies. However, it has an equally rich and beneficial history of treating and giving balance to the body, mind and soul, (aka QI). A genuine practitioner will already have the values and ethos of QI embedded in their methodology and practices. Likewise, a patient who seek acupuncturist to alleviate their pain will also receive the treatment of their QI. Moreover, Toyohari acupuncturists, still need additional training before they can begin practicing this method.
Although this isn’t always the case, if you are looking for Toyohari acupuncture in Vancouver, for instance, then you will find reputable and qualified practitioner like Kazuo Tateishi from Forest of Zen Wellness. Moreover, this technique can take years to perfect and develop. One of the largest Toyohari training centres is The Toyohari Association, which teaches traditional medication practitioners, how to diagnose, repair and treat a patient’s QI. In essence, this practice focuses on working with QI. So, now let’s look at the five benefits of Toyohari acupuncture.
1. Painless and gentle – this acupuncture method is ideal, as it’s painless, non-invasive Japanese needle therapy.
2. Inclusive – following on from the above benefit, the fact that it is needless means that children, teenagers, basically anyone can take advantage of this highly beneficial practice. Besides, patients with a damaged or comprised immune system, or any immune deficiencies, can leverage this natural alternative, to improve their body and mind.
3. Supportive – at times, many of us can feel off-balance in life, which is where Toyohari acupuncture can come into play. All of these techniques are aligned and work collaboratively to support, restore and repair a damaged or off-balance QI. Moreover, these techniques include a combination of movements and techniques that are specifically for dispersion. Some examples include, vessel balancing, balancing the cicadian clock and more.
4. Gradual and continuous – another benefit of having Toyohari acupuncture in Vancouver, is that the treatment is completely calming throughout, so the patient will experience a gradual, yet a highly beneficial on their body’s innate healing capabilities.

6. Collaborative – The Toyohari Association, aptly describes this practice, “Traditional Acupuncture is, to put it simply, people treating people.” This sophisticated form of acupuncture requires the practitioner and the individual to remain connected, in terms of energy, throughout the session.
