Your place in Bridgnorth for Japanese Integrated Medicine

Japanese Integrated Medicine

What is it?

Japanese Integrated Medicine is a truly holistic approach of health care and remedial treatment that is both complementary and alternative to other medical approaches.

It can be subdivided into:

- Physical medicine: 

Physical medicine integrates many “Therapies” to treat physical ailments such as back pain, shoulder pain, slipped discs, knee strains, arthritis, sports injuries, aches, pains, strains, post-operative recovery, neuralgia, stroke rehabilitation, etc. 

- Internal medicine:

Internal medicine integrates many “Therapies” to provide treatment for conditions such as headaches, hormonal imbalances, digestive ailments, fertility assistance, erectile dysfunction, sinusitis, immune response, etc. 

The speciality of Japanese Integrated Medicine is that it is NOT a “Therapy”. It integrates many “Therapies” together to enhance the therapeutic effect! 

What we do

These therapies are combined for what you need each time you come. No treatment session is the same!

Japanese Acupuncture

Acupuncture and moxibustion has a proven track record of its effectiveness in the treatment of pain, musculoskeletal dysfunctions and internal health conditions. 

Japanese acupuncture often uses fewer needles than Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM.)

Physical balancing is also provided 99% of the time to integrate many therapies and enhance the treatment effects.

Japanese Physical Medicine

Presenting Sekkotsu, essentially Japanese for “Bone setting”, including non-surgical methods of aligning broken bones, correcting dislocations, improving and correcting joint mobility, improving posture and joint/ligament/muscle balance. 

Sekkotsu has similarities with western Osteopathy/Chiropractic and Physiotherapy. 

In addition, Sekkotsu practitioners are highly skilled in utilizing acu-points to decrease pain and improve mobility.

Cranial-Sacral Technique

Known in Japanese as Kenkujutsu, it is a gentle hands-on treatment brings balance to the head and spine and that may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain, stiffness and others. 

As it is non-invasive, it is suitable for everyone from newly-born babies to the elderly. 

Visceral Balancing

Known as Ampuka in Japanese, this is an intra-abdominal massage technique designed to promote healthy internal organs.

Your internal organs are surrounded by connective tissue that should be loose enough to allow your stomach to expand when you eat, your lungs to open and accept air, your intestines to constrict and relax to move waste to your colon. 

They also have connections with the rest of the body, so it is important to have a healthy belly!


Japanese Anma Massage

An integration of acupressure/shiatsu with remedial massage, visceral massage, remedial exercise and our unique head to toe balancing routine to improve recovery and treat related imbalances.

This type of massage can be helpful when it comes to helping an individual to restore the health and vigour of their bodies.

A hands-on technique, it can be also combined with the use of cupping, Gua Sha ('scraping'), massage gun and other tools.

Neuro Linguist Programming

In Eastern Medicine, the mind-body connection is a key concept to have a healthy life. Having good mental health will give a good physical health.

NLP can be described as having 'the user's manual of your brain'. It is a set of techniques and tools to help you achieve the best results for your life, relationships and career.

This can be added in your therapy when needed. It is also possible to dedicate specific sessions for coaching to achieve the life that you deserve.


Armiche Barreno


Armiche has been practicing Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu for more than 20 years, a martial that is always accompanied by teachings of “martial medicine” every now and then. After many years being interested in learning more about it, he decided to join the Chestnut School of Japanese Integrated Medicine, and take the opportunity to learn professionally, training under the world renowned Dr Chris Roworth.

Dr Hatsumi Maasaki, head of the Bujinkan, gifted this truly outstanding ancient martial arts medicine to the western world via Dr Chris Roworth, who now imparts his knowledge to a select few. Chris is only one of the three trained physicians in the Western world trained in this outstanding medicine. The medicine has, over the years been referred to as ‘Japan’s best kept secret’.

Armiche is fully qualified in Japanese Integrated Medicine. He continues to keep learning, assisting more training courses with Chris. Recently he has also become an NLP Practitioner to complement his therapies.
