Kampo and Shinkyu Clinic Kakikofu
Kakikofu is a traditional Chinese medicine clinic specializing in Kampo, Wakanyaku (Japanese herbal medicine) and Japanese acupuncture and moxibustion.
The Kakikofu style combines traditional medicine from both China and Japan; having the approach of applying ancient Chinese wisdom with the pragmatic Japanese spirit, our aim is to enhance the health and wellbeing of people from all over the world.
Kakikofu specializes in Wakanyaku, which is a little known and rare form of traditional Japanese herbal medicine. The origins of Wakanyaku are deeply connected to the esoteric and mystical sect of Japanese Buddhism, Shugendo. Additionally, the Japanese Ninja utilized and adapted Wakanyaku to create their own unique medicines that we include as part of our treatments.
We have a wide range of Japanese herbal medicine products available at our clinic which can be prepared in response to your individual health condition. We also offer acupuncture and moxibustion treatments. Our acupuncture and moxibustion treatments are based on traditional Chinese medical knowledge but performed with unique techniques that were developed in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1867). We always use thin, high quality and disposable acupuncture needles so that you receive the safest and most comfortable experience possible.
