only females understandFor Women

Women have more diverse female hormones than men and their bodies are constantly changing.
In the teenage years, the first menstrual period begins and the body and mind change rapidly towards an adult body.
From their 20s onwards, they become adults, and are faced with pregnancy, childbirth, monthly menstruation, daily stress from work and living conditions, and menopause.

Women's bodies change every day as they try to cope with daily changes.
This causes a lot of changes, such as yesterday being good and today not being good, which puts a strain on the body and mental health.
This pressure can cause a variety of physical and mental symptoms.

Acupuncture is a woman's best friend

Why acupuncture is a woman's best friend.

A woman's body is deeply connected to blood and blood flow.
Too much blood flow can cause stagnation, heat and dryness, leading to stiff shoulders, irritability, headaches and flushing.

Poor blood flow also makes the body susceptible to cold.
It is said that "cold is the root of all illnesses" and has a variety of negative effects on the body.
Many women are said to suffer from colds.
Cold causes poor qi circulation, poor blood circulation in the body and hormonal imbalance. This leads to problems specific to women.

Acupuncture is good at improving qi circulation and blood flow, regulating hormonal balance and warming the body from the core.
As a result, the abdomen (uterus) is warmed and female-specific symptoms such as lower-body cold, menstrual cramps, irregular periods and infertility are improved.

Warming the body also activates the functions of the internal organs, and is effective in improving stiff shoulders and back pain, swelling, rough skin, loss of appetite, constipation, diarrhoea, recovery from fatigue and insomnia.


  • warming up the body

    Acupuncture is very good at warming the body. It does not just warm the body temporarily, but raises the deep body temperature in the core of the body.
    This improves the circulation of blood and hormones in the body, facilitates sweating and increases the body's overall metabolism.

  • Keep the gut healthy

    The intestines play a very important role in the body.
    It supplies energy to the whole body and plays a role as an immune system, etc. It is said that maintaining a healthy bowel leads to the prevention of illness and ageing.
    In order to keep the intestines healthy and working properly, pressure points are stimulated to improve the intestinal environment.
    If the intestines are cold, they are warmed; if they are hot and dry, they are moistened; if they are watery, they are drained; if they are anemic, their function is impaired, blood flow is improved.

  • Trying to get pregnant

    Fertility care is not only about improving infertility, but also about preparing for a healthy pregnancy by preparing the body and mind for a healthy pregnancy, and preparing the couple's relationship and environment for conception.
    Acupuncture is said to be effective in preparing the body and mind for pregnancy.
    Acupuncture regulates the autonomic nervous system and hormonal balance, warms the body and regulates physical condition.
    We will work with you to improve your constitution before conception and take measures to improve coldness and blood flow, and support you in creating a body that makes it easier to get pregnant.


  • Infertility treatment

    Physical condition support in combination with hospital fertility treatment

    Acupuncture is an effective way to support the body's fertility.
    The World Health Organisation (WHO) has confirmed through various clinical experiments that acupuncture is also effective in treating infertility.

    Infertility is generally defined as the inability of a healthy man or woman to conceive after at least one year of fertility control.
    There are many different causes of infertility, and both men and women can be infertile. There are also cases of unexplained infertility where no obvious cause can be found after tests.
    Acupuncture treatment is effective for both such causes and unexplained cases and can be used in conjunction with hospital fertility treatment to support the physical condition of the patient.

  • Gynaecological system

    Various improvements in blood flow, hormonal balance and activation of female hormones

    Women suffer from a wide range of symptoms and diseases.
    The problems can go round in circles, as they cannot be discussed, or they are prescribed medicines that only have a temporary effect, or cause different disorders due to side effects.
    Many of the causes are that the body's flow (qi and blood flow) becomes stagnant and the circulatory balance of the body's flow (blood flow, qi, hormones, heat, water, etc.) is disrupted, resulting in cold and stagnation deep within the body.
    Women in particular have a very important relationship with [blood and blood flow].
    Adjusting this relationship to its original state is the first step in fundamentally improving women's problems.

    Acupuncture treatment improves blood flow and hormonal balance, warms up the cold areas of the body causing problems, improves the flow of Qi, activates female hormones, stops inflammatory reactions, relieves muscle tension and provides various other improvements.

  • Menopause

    Improve 'cold and stagnation' and menopausal symptoms

    The menopause is the period of five years before and after menopause (around 45 to 55 years of age).
    Menopause varies from person to person, but most people reach menopause at around age 50.
    Medically speaking, as long as the ovaries still produce estrogen after menstruation has stopped, the woman is still in menopause.

    Menopause is a condition that is not identified at menopause and presents with a mixture of symptoms.
    In general, the main ones are symptoms of vasomotor neuropathy, such as bloating, dizziness, sweating and a pounding heart; psycho neuropathy, such as depression, irritability, memory loss, headache, insomnia and tinnitus; stiff shoulders, back pain, constipation, lower abdominal pain and cold hands and feet.

    In oriental medicine, symptoms at menopause are associated with 'cold' and 'blood circulation'.(In Western medicine, they are all associated with female hormones.)
    Many of the symptoms that appear during menopause are said to be caused by 'excessive blood circulation' and 'insufficient blood circulation'.
    Acupuncture can be effective in treating such menopausal symptoms.

    The treatment of menopause is approached by improving 'blood flow'.

    • If there is a lack of blood and circulation is poor. The blood qi itself is deficient, so acupuncture is applied first to acupuncture points that increase blood qi, to increase blood volume, and then to ensure smooth flow.
    • When heat is involved in the blood,This is called a 'blood-heat condition', where the blood is combined with a lack of water, resulting in heat in the blood.
      Treatment involves acupuncture using acupuncture points that allow water to enter the blood and cool the heat.
      Symptoms include a 'hot and cold' state, which is characteristic of menopause.
    • Blood stagnation and poor circulation.
      There is heat in the true part of the body, but the surface of the body, the lower part, is easily chilled due to lack of circulation.
      Treatment is acupuncture using acupoints that act to make stagnant blood flow smoothly.
    Excessive blood circulation

    This is a symptom that mainly comes from "flushing". (Stagnation of heat (blood) in the upper body) If heat (blood) stagnates in the upper body, it means that there is more blood flow there.
    If blood flow stagnates in the head, you can become red-faced from 'flushing', flustered and dizzy, sweating only in the head, memory loss, headache and tinnitus.
    If blood flow stagnates in the chest, it can cause palpitations, shortness of breath, chest pain, depression, irritability and stiff shoulders.

    Poor blood circulation

    If heat (blood) is concentrated in the upper body, the opposite is true for the lower body, which has less blood.
    When blood circulation is poor, this in turn is accompanied by 'cold'.
    Lower back pain, lower abdominal pain, cold feet and swelling are symptoms brought on by 'cold' due to insufficient blood circulation.

  • Self-care

    Helps to dissipate heat, relieve cold, pain and relax!
    Why not start moxibustion at home?

    We often hear the term 'self-care'. So what is self-care?

    One is physical ill health from daily fatigue and stress.
    The other is a mental disorder caused by anxiety, worry or trouble.
    Both of these are malfunctions, so they are malfunction signals from the body and the mind.
    If these signals are left unchecked, the body's self-protection system will work to hide the disorder.
    As a result, you may become ill or lose your vitality. This is a bit scary.
    To prevent this from happening, it is very important to take care of your body and mind by yourself.

    Simple ways to start immediately.
    There are many ways, such as: warming up, eating foods that are good for digestion, sleeping well, exercising, listening to your favourite music, taking a good rest, going on trips, etc.
    However, there are limits to how much you can do to take care of yourself alone. In such cases, it is better to consult a specialist.

    And acupuncture is highly effective for self-care.
    Acupuncture stimulates acupuncture points to reduce blockages in the body's qi and blood flow, and moxibustion dissipates heat and warms up cold.
    In addition, the treatment is based on the pulse and medical interview to detect areas of disorder, and appropriate treatment is applied.

    At acupuncture clinic Hug, along with treatment, we also offer [moxibustion courses that you can do at home].
    Moxibustion is very effective as a warming activity, such as dissipating heat, relieving cold, pain and relaxation.
    I believe that if you can do such moxibustion easily at home, it will increase the effect of self-care and help you feel at ease in mind and body.

    Finally, the mind and body are two sides of the same coin. If either one of them is in disorder, both the mind and the body will be in disorder.
    Let's start a higher grade of self-care together.


Revive from within the body.
Build a beautiful and healthy body with the mystical power of oriental medicine.

  • Beauty acupuncture

    Acupuncture is a form of oriental medicine in which nationally qualified acupuncturists use needles and moxibustion to stimulate acupuncture points scattered throughout the body to improve physical conditions and pain.
    This acupuncture treatment performed by acupuncturists for cosmetic purposes is called beauty acupuncture.
    It generally refers to acupuncture treatment directly on the face, and is sometimes called facial acupuncture to distinguish it from full-body beauty acupuncture treatment.

    Women have many problems with beauty.
    There are many worries and complexes, such as wanting to look beautiful and pretty at all times, wanting to get rid of spots and wrinkles, wanting to tighten the skin nicely, sagging skin, dullness...
    That's why we want you to experience [Beauty Acupuncture] once.

    Beauty acupuncture is believed to be suitable for various skin problems by applying acupuncture needles to the appropriate areas of the face to promote skin metabolism, blood flow and muscle relaxation.
    It is also true that many people are surprised by the change in appearance and the immediate effects of beauty acupuncture.
    So what are the benefits?

    Benefits of beauty acupuncture

    There are so many benefits of beauty acupuncture.

    Facial beauty benefits
    Promotes brain activity
    Hormonal balance and better functioning of internal organs.
    Makes life more comfortable by improving headaches, back pain and stiffness.
    Improves and boosts blood flow
    Stimulating acupuncture points with needles helps to circulate stagnant blood and at the same time flush out accumulated waste.
    Blood flow improves and the skin is reborn with better absorption of nutrients, improving its elasticity and luminosity.
    It also improves blood colour and makes the skin healthy and beautiful.
    Collagen production
    UV radiation, gravity and ageing reduce collagen production.
    As collagen and elastin decrease, the skin becomes less firm and moist, leading to sagging and wrinkles.
    Acupuncture stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, leading to firm and hydrated skin.
    Improving muscle tension
    Overly tense muscles can lead to facial distortion and make the face appear larger.
    Acupuncture needles can be inserted into the muscles to improve blood flow in the muscles, relieve tension and produce a small face effect.
    Conversely, if the muscles are too loose, stimulation of the muscles will tighten them and this too can be expected to have a small face effect.
    Skin beautiful: sagging, swelling, wrinkles

    Beauty acupuncture has a wide range of benefits: blemishes, dull and pale face, dry skin, acne prevention, reduction of redness of acne scars, dark circles under the eyes, double chin, eye fatigue, left-right difference in face, face more square than before...
    Beauty acupuncture does not approach the skin from the surface like cosmetics or beauty treatments, but works from the inside out by stimulating the tissues, cells, blood vessels and nerves.
    It is not only for the skin, but also for the stomach and intestines, stiff shoulders and swollen feet, etc.
    It activates the skin's own recovery function while adjusting the balance of the entire body, and leads to anti-ageing.
