About Emiko Okabe

Before started my own practice, I worked at a very busy acupuncture clinic for four years where we see over 50 patients per day.  The experience was very precious for me that I was able see and treat so many different health problems, and from the age of one-month old to over 100 years old elders.

Unlike the majority of acupuncturists who perform the Traditional Chinese Medicine in this country, I practice the Traditional Japanese Medicine called the Meridian Therapy.  It is also known as the gentlest acupuncture technique available.  Because of its mild stimulation, pediatric acupuncture is also very common in Japan, and I use special tools on children that have been used in Japan for the last 300 years.  Children actually respond better and faster than adults due to their sensitivity.

The meridian therapy emphasis on meridians which can be seen as invisible energy pathways, almost like railways, flowing throughout our bodies.  I look at the entire railways first to find which route causes stagnation of energy flow and seek a specific acupuncture points to release the stagnation.  In Oriental medicine, we believe that the vital energy is responsible for keeping our bodies alive and well.  As long as this energy is flowing freely, we will remain healthy; however, once the energy flow in an area becomes weak or stagnant, health problems will appear soon.

The purpose of acupuncture is not only to eliminate or alleviate symptoms but more importantly to treat underlying cause and balance the energy system.  The risk of side effect is none or minimum if any, and potential benefits are unlimited!
