Dr. Pastore is trained in a form of medical acupuncture taught by Kiiko Matsumoto. It is a more modern Japanese interpretation of Classical Chinese Acupuncture, practiced for thousands of years and based on Taoist thought and naturalism. The choice of needle insertion patterns is based on traditional principles such as encouraging the flow of qi through classically described acupuncture meridians, but the Kiiko style also relies on reading (through palpation) and releasing reflexes on the body surface. It also examines the chronology of symptomatology over the course of a patient's life to arrive at and address the root. Acupuncture has been used to successfully address many conditions including acute and chronic pain syndromes, headaches syndromes, allergies, asthma, chronic sinusitis, infertility, hormonal imbalances, perimenopause, morning sickness, breech presentations, delays in labor, postoperative pain and nausea, depression, anxiety, structural imbalances, etc.
