World of Acupuncture & Moxibustion Toyozakura


Based on healthy life expectancy and average life expectancy around the world, we summarized one of the problems of the elderly: frailty. In Japan, it took 24 years to go from an aging society to a super-aging society. Sweden and France entered the super-aging society first, but the period is much longer than Japan's. On the other hand, in recent years, Asian countries have entered super-aging societies in even shorter periods than Japan. We believe that acupuncture and moxibustion treatment can play a significant role in such societies.
