What is Shakuju Therapy?
 
Shakuju therapy is a form of popular non-insertive acupuncture and moxa treatment based on ancient Chinese acupuncture. The theory was developed in Japan by a leading acupuncturist (Dr. Kobayashi) and translated into its English name "Acupuncture Core Therapy".
 
"Shaku" refers to a deep blockage of the life force energy and blood, where as "Ju" refers to superficial blockages of the life force energy and blood. One goal of Shakuju therapy is to remove all blood and life force energy blockages using effective points, the idea being to treat the root of illness rather than treating the manifestation of illness.
 
Moreover, Shakuju therapy treats the inherited life force energy from our parents which is a more fundamental level of life force energy in humans. The major area of treatment is the backside of the body. At the early stage of development, the kidneys which are a root of life in terms of Eastern medicine, have direct correspondence to the back of the body through which run life force energy pathway points.
 
In Japanese acupuncture the abdominal diagnosis is essential to determine the pattern of imbalance of the patient. In Shakuju therapy the focus is on the abdominal diagnosis as well. It is believed that the abdomen is the core of human body and  illness appears in the abdomen as corresponding points which can be determined by abdominal palpation.

Acupuncture helps to stimulate the body's natural processes of cell reproduction and growth. Throughout the treatment series, you may notice other physical symptoms improve.
