“I wish to cure the patients who cannot be cured anywhere else”
Kendo Kawai, President, KAWAI SHINKYUIN
Acupuncture is a pain-relieving therapy, tracing back thousands of years. It started first in China and spread later to other Oriental countries. Simply put, the principle of acupuncture is as follows. It relaxes tense sympathetic nerves, which makes parasympathetic nerve more dominant. This expands blood vessels which warms the body and enhances the natural healing power of the human body. That, in turn, improves the condition of the lymphocyte and granulocyte within one’s white blood cells, and strengthens human immunity. Consequently, the human power to eliminate free radicals is fortified and various painful symptoms are cured. Kawai Shinkyuin has vastly improved these effects by devising Haripractic, a therapeutic method that combines acupuncturing with certain exercises.

What is Haripractic?

Haripractic is a completely innovative acupuncture therapy developed by Kendo Kawai, acupuncturist through his half a century of practice, duering which he cured over 150,000 people in pain. This therapeutic method was the first in the acupuncture world. Haripractic cures pains and difficulties associated with below symptoms. Compared to cures by hands, it is safe, assuring and most effective.

Symptoms curable by Haripractic

Cervical vertebrae
  • Cervical disc herniation
  • Cervical sprain
  • Cervical stenosis
Various cervical symptoms as mentioned above or straight necks that have no physiological curve cause diverse autonomic neuropathies. They include dizziness, sleeplessness, tiring easily, depression, the sensation as though a splinter is stuck on your throat, or the unpleasantness as though your intestine is being pinched and many other painful symptoms that cannot be verbally described. The Haripractic of KAWAI SHINKYUIN adjusts neck bones by less than 0.1 mm width with acupuncturing in between the bones of the neck. This restores the autonomic nerve to a normal condition, which improves discomforts including headaches and stiff shoulders.
Hips and back
  • Acute or chronic back pain
  • Slipped disc
  • Vertebral canal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
Hip and back pains and troubles including the above often prevent ordinary daily life. The Haripractic of KAWAI SHINKYUIN cures them through acupuncturing combined with an exercise, a method developed by Kendo Kawai himself. Those with above back problems but do not wish to undergo a surgery, or those who have had a surgery but resumed pains afterwards come to KAWAI SHINKYUIN. Although more than a dozen acupuncturing treatments are required for heavy symptoms, we have had patients who could not even walk from pains resume walking only after one exercise acupuncturing treatment.
Hip joint
  • Osteoarthritis of the hip joint
  • Dislocation of the hip joint
  • Coxitic scoliosis
  • Arthrokatodvsis
and other hip joint difficulties are cured through the unique Haripractic or the exercising acupuncture devised by KAWAI SHINKYUIN. Those who do not wish to have the hip bone operated, or those who underwent a surgery but the troubles resumed visit us.
Knee joint problems
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Meniscus injury
and other various knee difficulties are also cured by Haripractic with exercising acupuncture of KAWAI SHINKYUIN. Those who do not wish to have the knee operated, or those who underwent the operation but the troubles resumed visit us.
