PTSD treatment method

Notable achievements in the year 2023, which is the establishment of a PTSD treatment method.

Before the year 2023

I was able to offer the treatments that were available to normalise PTSD.
However, the number of treatments was 30 and the treatment period was 8 months.

This treatment was not aimed at trauma and PTSD. I treated for extreme depression, and before I knew it, the accompanying symptoms of PTSD had disappeared.

I was able to offer the treatmenet for PTSD. But it was the level where the PTSD could be cured if I offered treatment of the depression to the whole body.

It was still quite amazing that I could make curing PTSD.

The Year 2023

I have established a treatment method that is targets PTSD.
I have been able to offer the treatment of PTSD and trauma that is dramatically improved with short term.

The flash almost disappeared after the third treatment, and completely disappeared after the fourth treatment.

From what the patient has told me,there have been no traumatic flashes since then. However, in situations of high stress, he feel if a flash is about to occur, but the flash, which makes your body stiffen just by feeling it, does not occur.

About the Patient
The patient has suffered from PTSD for over 10 years. Symptoms had worsened in the past year.
In the past year, he had experienced trauma flashes over 100 times a day, making daily life difficult.

His symptoms of depression were mild, and he came to the hospital seeking treatment for his PTSD.

What I found out about PTSD

By targeting the treatment of PTSD, I was able to understand where and what kind of physical symptoms were occurring and where to treat them.

I have been able to treat PTSD through the accumulation of previous treatment experiences. The time I have spent so far has not been wasted, and the direction of the treatment is right.
I felt happy.

Trauma transmission and Epigenetics

I realized that traumatic memories are not only memories in the brain, but also memories engraved in the body.

I also realized that the transmission of trauma across generations is the transmission of memories engraved in the body, and that this is a form of epigenetics.

Offer treatment for PTSD

I can offer the treatment for PTSD, please come to the Kirara Acupuncture Clinic.

Please receive 10 treatments at first. The treatment period will be approximately 3 months.

Policy of Kirara

Based on the idea that "if the blood flow in your body improves, your body will change, and so will your mind," and we focus on improving blood flow throughout the body, including the brain.

Blood Flow to Brain

We think that it is very important to increase blood flow to the brain for a whole physical body and also your mind. Because the brain is the center headquarters of the body. Poor blood flow to the brain causes poor performance of the brain.

Stiffness in Muscle

If there is a neck stiffness in your muscle that presses blood tubes then it cause reducing the blood flow to brain.
So we will take the neck stiffness as the key treatment now.

Also it is important to increase the blood flow for a total body. So we will take off any stiffnesses in your all body.



We use Modern Western Medicine technique for targeting muscle. And Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques for acupuncture point as Qi(chi) energy.
Our acupuncture techniques are non insertion, a normal insertion and a deep insertion. Also an electro acupuncture.

We use Moxibustion aggressively too.

Good Treatment

We have a good treatment for the muscle trouble such as Shoulder Stiffness, Lower Back Pain, Gonalgia related muscle, Hip Pain, Neck Pain and Hypertension.

Moxibustion is very useful for a Ingrown Toenail.

Mental Sick

Also we can provide relief for a mental sick such as depression, autonomic ataxia and juvenilis cerebral infarction.

In the mental sick, many stresses in the past are memorized as the physical troubles in your body. We can see these memories in your body. These make the stiffness in muscle pain or numbness, or insensitive to physical stimulation too.

Body and Mind Are One

In general, mental things are a complicated issue because they are not visible. But we treat it as visible muscle trouble. We take off the muscle troubles that are your bad memories. So it makes relief for your mind.

Thank you for the great words of Buddha. "Body and Mind Are One".


We think that daily food and physical exercise are very important for keeping good health continuously.
We offer basic food method and physical exercise method, it is not tough and is easy to do.
