With Yuuki Hirano
Yuuki is a New York State Licensed Acupuncturist and certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He received his Master of Science from Tri-State College of Acupuncture which has given him the resources to practice three different styles of acupuncture; Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture Physical Medicine, (developed by the school’s founder Mark Seem) and a Japanese style of acupuncture taught by master practitioner Kiiko Matsumoto. Yuuki integrates all three styles into his approach, but focuses mainly on the Japanese style of acupuncture for its gentle style of needling and proven clinical success.

Palpation Based Acupuncture
This Japanese style of acupuncture refined by Kiiko Matsumoto utilizes the objective feedback of the body in the diagnostic process. The patient’s abdomen and back as well as other areas pertaining to the patient’s signs and symptoms are felt by the practitioner and patient to determine any discomfort, tightness or pain. Then very specific acupuncture points are selected, pressed and then needled if it helps to relieve these areas of discomfort.
Trigger Point Therapy
Based on the extensive research conducted by physician and medical researcher, Janet Travell, Trigger Point Therapy utilizes the understanding of the myofascial relationships of the body to address pain and helps to release muscular tension, knots and trigger points.
The Acupuncture treatment may include the use of practices complementary to needling to help treat and improve patient’s health. Some of those techniques include cupping, guasha, moxibustion, electro-acupuncture, ion-pumping cords, diode rings and magnets.
