Acupuncture is an ancient technique that has become popular all over the world due to its ability to safely and effectively treat hundreds of conditions. The World Health Organization recognizes Acupuncture as an effective treatment for many conditions including pain (all types, example: low back), headaches, digestive issues, insomnia, infertility, stress/anxiety, and many more. The technique involves the use of small filiform (solid) needles to stimulate points on the body. These points are carefully chosen based on the individuals symptoms. The goal is to achieve balance and allow the body to heal. Acupuncture can also be used preventatively to maintain good health and promote a long and happy life.
Herbal Medicine is an essential part of treatment for many different conditions. Chinese Herbal formulas are unique in that they are custom designed to match the patient and treat the underlying cause of disease/symptoms. Herbal Medicine can enhance any acupuncture treatment, and operates on the same basic principle of promoting balance within the body. For those who do not wish to receive acupuncture, herbal formulas can be used as a primary treatment with equally powerful effects. Chinese Herbs are safe and natural, however they must be prescribed by a licensed professional. Book your consultation today!
CUPPING THERAPY/GUA SHA
Cupping Therapy has been used for thousands of years as a way to release musculo-skeletal tension, detox the body to boost energy, and treat the common cold. Cupping creates a suction on the underlying tissues, creating space between the muscle and fascia, and increases blood flow to the area. Gua Sha has similar effects to cupping, however, the technique uses a round tool to massage the musculature and break up adhesions within the connective tissue. Both therapies are often combined with acupuncture, however they can be used individually for specific complaints.
