Welcome to the CULIA KI CLINIC. At our clinic we practice a type of acupuncture called Hari. Hari is a refined system of Japanese five phase meridian therapy. Hari is both a medical practice and a unique approach to healing. A fundamental characteristic of Hari is the practitioner's sensitivity to Ki and his/her ability to connect heart-to-heart to the patient.
To facilitate healing of the body, heart and soul is the intent of Hari. It is for this reason that Hari is considered a "benevolent art" and a form of caring. The art of Hari has been passed from person to person for more than 5000 years.
Hari treatments bring dignity and harmony back to the life force. What is life force? Your life force is your energy, spirit, heart, mind, body, light, and your reason for living. Your life force includes the connection you have to others and to the whole universe. We don't treat narrow symptoms or fight disease. Hari treatments work on a much deeper level to awaken the heart and to renew the "flame of hope" within the patient.
The essence of Hari treatment comes from the awakening of a special phenomenon within the patient known as a "return to nature". This is felt as a harmonic rhythm of Ki that manifests when the hearts of the practitioner and the patient resonate and become attuned with the whole universe. When we are attuned in this way, we heal naturally. Our innate wisdom is restored and we access joy, hope and love. Both the practitioner and the patient benefit from the treatment and experience a mutual encouragement to grow and to heal.
We use pulse and abdominal diagnosis as an accurate method to observe the functioning of the patient's Ki. The pulse is like a monitor reflecting the changes taking place in the patient during the progression of the treatment. The needle techniques are gentle, yet effective on a deep level. We use contact or touch needling, which is a noninvasive method.
A gold or silver needle is touched or superficially inserted to the acupuncture points. In some treatments, we burn an herb on the acupuncture point to deepen the treatment. This is known as Moxibustion.
The treatments are quiet and meditative. We believe human growth and healing occurs within an intense meditative state. During the treatment, you may have a realization to "let go" or you may experience a shift in consciousness. This is the power of Hari.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
When Ki flows freely through the meridians, the body is balanced and health. But if the energy becomes blocked, stagnated or weakened, it can result in physical, mental or emotional illness. An imbalance in a person's body can result from inappropriate emotional responses such as excess anger, over-excitement, self-pity, deep grief and fear. Environmental factors such as cold, dampness/humidity, wind, dryness, and heat can also cause imbalance, as well as factors such as wrong diet, and excessive sex, work or exercise.
To restore balance, the acupuncturists uses the acupuncture points that will counteract that imbalance. The treatment centers on supplementing the primary deficiency pattern or SHO, and balancing the distribution and circulation of Ki within the meridian system. Therefore, if you have stagnant Ki, he/she will choose specific points to release it. If it is too weak, the practioner will strengthen it. The points that the practitioner chooses to use may not necessarily be at the site of the symptoms.

In the United States, acupuncture is frequently used for the treatment of chronic conditions such as arthritis, bursitis, headache, athletic injuries, and post-traumatic and post-surgical pain. It is also used for treating chronic pain associated with immune system function dysfunction such as psoriasis (skin disorders), allergies, and asthma. Acupuncture is also effective for the treatment of mind-body disorders such as anxiety, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, hypertension, insomnia, PMS, menopausal discomfort, infertility and depression. Acupuncture is also effective in the treatment of alcoholism, addiction, smoking, and eating disorders.
Hari is safe and gentle for babies and children. We practice Shoni-Hari, which is a form of Japanese Pediatric Acupuncture. Shoni-Hari is intended for children from birth to about 12 years old. We do not insert needles into children. We use a special pediatric needle that is gently stroked on the meridians. The children enjoy their treatments and get relief from asthma, headache, and abdominal pain. In Japan, Shoni-Hari is highly regarded as a preventive medical treatment. Regular Shoni-Hari treatments help strengthen the parent-child relationship and improve the spiritual and emotional development of the child.
