Acupuncture

The practice of Chinese medicine incorporates ancient Chinese philosophy and teachings. Fundamental components are the use of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and other treatment modalities that provide a complete therapeutic system. The end goal is to prevent disease and imbalance in the patient by helping to establish mental, physical and spiritual well-being.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.  Acupuncture is used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote your body’s healing abilities.

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points on the body. Most patients find the sensations produced by acupuncture treatment to be deeply relaxing both mentally and physically.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow.

Moxibustion

 is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing and health. The effects of moxibustion last for hours after treatment in response to heat stimulation.

Cupping

is a negative pressure massage that uses suction to move blood and stretch connective tissue. It is used successfully to treat chronic pain.

Trigger point therapy

is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in your body. It is also know as Dry Needle Technique. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points; these ‘knots’ are built up throughout a person’s life due to physical or mental stress. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
