General Acupuncture

Treat the root cause of acute and chronic health conditions with acupuncture. We release pain and stress, increase your chance of getting pregnant, and more.

Revive and transform your skin with a range of fine needling techniques. This non-invasive, purifying treatment is the key to a lifted complexion with glowing skin.


A Traditional Approach

The traditional art of Japanese acupuncture is deeply personal, and we customize every treatment with a wide variety of needling techniques. Your health concerns, history, and goals are unique, so let’s work together to empower your health and maximize the benefits.

The Power of Touch

At Takazawa Acupuncture, we focus on healing through the surface and treating the body’s largest organ.

Many clinics combine herbal supplements and topical treatments with acupuncture, but we take a more focused approach. Japanese acupuncture treats a wider range of symptoms and utilizes diverse needling techniques instead of herbs.

Subtle Stimulation

Release energy blockages during an uplifting, relaxing facial acupuncture session. Our AcuSerene® Facial Acupuncture treatments gently stimulate the skin with superficial touches and precise needle placement.

As a result, there is very little risk of bleeding or bruising on the face and you can enjoy the esthetic benefits even faster.


Spread quick, energizing heat to refine muscle tone, release pain, and invigorate your internal systems. Naomi occasionally burns moxa fiber cones with modern heat seals on the skin’s surface. Depending on your symptoms, this helps balance the flow of Ki and tune the body.

This ancient practice opens energy channels and stimulates acupuncture points with a warm, flooding feeling of relief.

My sessions with Naomi were always greeted with a friendly smile and Naomi’s attentiveness to my needs. Naomi always made sure I was comfortable at the beginning, middle, and end of our sessions.
