Sasebo Acupuncture and Massage Clinic


 Hello, my name is Chelsea and I used Explore Translation for my very first experience with Acupuncture at the Sasebo Acupuncture and Massage Clinic located inside the Gobangai Shopping Mall.

I am very active individual and I prefer natural forms of relief to help with stiffness and tension. So naturally when I saw Explore Translation offering to book appointments for this I jumped on it. I met up with Saori at the Gobangai Mall and we walked over to the clinic together. After filling out a short form we then went to a private room, and with the help of Saori translating, we discussed problem areas and what I was about to feel as well as how I will benefit from it.  

The gentleman that worked on me was very kind and knowledgeable. He began feeling my back and neck for stiffness and tightness so he could place the needles. He also worked on my knee which I have been having some pain in. I honestly never felt the needle being inserted, it was only when they were at the intended depth in which I felt tingling, mild ache, warmth, and a little electric sensation that only lasted a few seconds. The needles were left in roughly 10 -15 minutes before being removed and during that time I was most relaxed.

My body was a little soar the following day but I feel less tension and it helped balance my energy flow. Overall, the staff was very friendly and my experience with Acupuncture at the Sasebo Acupuncture and Massage Clinic was amazing. I would definitely recommend using them to anyone seeking natural ways to relieve pain.  And of course, I highly recommend using Explore Translation because without Saori my experience would have felt impossible.
