Welcome to the homepage of Nagomu Dermatology Clinic. The aim of this homepage is to help you understand about our clinic. We hope you learn something by visiting this homepage.
In today’s society, many people endure excess mental stress. “Nagomu” or “kokoro ga nagomu” means heart-warming, calming or soothing. We encourage you to visit our clinic and experience the calming effect on your heart and body.
In the way of Kampo-style thinking, good balance creates a healthy state of body and mind. Too much “jitu, or excess Qi (energy flow), as well as too little Qi, can create an imbalance. We would like to remind you of the importance of Nagomu (harmony and balance) while you are sick.
The Nagomu Clinic is dedicated to cultivating good relations and harmony with our patients who also utilize other medical facilities. We work together in the best interest of our patients. Nagomu: heart-warming, calming, soothing.
We see all skin diseases. If you notice something abnormal on your skin, please consult us, even if is a mere itch or minor pain. Even if you don’t see the actual exanthema (rash), we recommend that you stop in for a consultation.
Urticaria or hives, a kind of skin rash notable for red, raised, itchy bumps, can often disappear and then reappear.
Pruritus or itch is an unpleasant sensation that evokes the desire or reflex to scratch, even though there is no rash.
In Herpes zoster, one feels only pain in the beginning of the disease. Zoster, commonly known as shingles, is a viral disease characterized by a painful skin rash with blisters in a limited area on one side of the body, often in a stripe.
We do simple sutures and small operations. If you have a small injury, spots, small skin tumor, pressure sore, nail concerns, hair issues, or cosmetic problems like skin stain or wrinkles, please consult us.
In this clinic, we perform emergency treatment. We also treat chronic diseases that can cause daily discomfort.
In this clinic, we prescribe Kampo/Chinese herbs covered by Japanese national insurance. In addition to traditional western medicine, examination, diagnosis and treatment, we would like to add the Kampo treatment. Patients will get the benefits of both treatment styles. Both western medicine and Kampo aim to treat the main cause. In western medicine, one tries to destroy the cause, like the bacteria in infections. In Kampo medicine, we try to activate the human body and obtain harmonized health.
To prescribe Kampo, we perform a special examination to observe the terrain or character of each body. We check the tongue, pulse, and abdomen, and this offers us an abundance of information to determine the proper care of your skin.
In Kampo treatment, there are two treatments. One is prescribed in order to sedate the symptom immediately, and the other, more radical treatment is aimed to change the 体質 or constitution/terrain of the person. The combination of these two types of treatment is tailored to best meeting the needs of each patient.
I worked in Aomori prefecture until 2004. During the last 4 years in Aomori pref., I was the chief dermatologist at Misawa Municipal Hospital. There, I treated skin diseases of babies, old people (home visitation), daily skin diseases, and severe skin disease which needed care by hospitalization. I started learning complementary and alternative medicine from 2004 in order to know more varieties of treatment strategy.
I had an opportunity to study Chinese medicine from Dr. Hiyama at Akashi clinic. This led me to hold clinic in the same building.
I also work in Division of Dermatology,Chinese Medicine, and CAM unit in Showa University Fujigaoka Hospital.
