Shakuju is a style of Japanese acupuncture genuinely Japanese that uses diagnostic methods traditionally developed in Japan such as abdominal palpation and treatment such as contact acupuncture.
A genuine Japanese acupuncture style from the hands of licensed teacher Aaron Rubinstein (USA). In the words of the creator of the method:
'Shakuju is a method that essentially uses acupuncture and moxibustion as treatment methods. First we treat the back, based on the pulse and the abdominal diagnosis'.
- Shoji Kobayashi sensei.-
A distinguishing characteristic of the Shakuju is that it uses a single silver needle because it is a style of Japanese contact acupuncture (without puncture). Based on classic knowledge and with a renewing vision, it now reaches us after 40 years of proven experience.
