Kanako is an experienced Acupuncturist with a Master of Science Degree in Acupuncture from the Tri-State College of Acupuncture. She was trained in various acupuncture styles, with a specialized focus in Kiiko Matsumoto Japanese style acupuncture, and Acupuncture Physical Medicine which places an emphasis on trigger point therapy.
Kanako is a second generation acupuncturist, deeply influenced by her upbringing in both China and Japan as well as her mother who was an acupuncturist herself. Acupuncture and other treatments such as “Gua Sha”, Cupping, Herbal medicine have always been part of her life and have made her who she is today.
By nature, she is a very loving and compassionate person so she feels that this medicine is her calling in life: “I always wanted to help people in any way I can. When I first moved to NYC 7 years ago from Tokyo, what I found in my encounters is that many people suffer from side effects attributed to environmental pollution, pharmaceuticals and/or complications from a variety of operations. This created a desire to help others with so much more than just their living arrangements, it made me want to follow in my mother’s footsteps and study acupuncture and East Asian medicine.”
Kanako places a priority on making an emotional connection with patients when diagnosing their conditions and formulating a treatment plan. Empathy and understanding are her biggest strengths when making a patient feel comfortable and open to healing. Kana is also fluent in Japanese and Mandarin,
