Harness the power of your Qi or inner energy with Acupuncture. This traditional Chinese medicine technique involves skilled insertion and manipulation of fine needles at symptom specific points on the body. A long history of research has validated the efficacy of using acupuncture for managing acute and chronic disease symptoms. Achieve optimal health by balancing the flow of the body’s Qi with acupuncture.
Electro-acupuncture therapy builds on traditional acupuncture techniques for balancing Qi (inner energy) and is used to treat disease. Acupuncture needles are gently inserted at symptom specific points along the body. The needles are connected to a specialized electro-machine. The electro-machine performs equal rotation of the needles, stabilizes the treatment, and controls the stimulation. Two or more points are selected at a time and the current level is customized to patient comfort. Treatment time is approximately 10 to 20 minutes.
STATIONARY & MOVING CUPPING
Stationary cupping is the most commonly known cupping. Cups are kept in one area
leaving circular marks as seen on professional athletes. Moving cupping integrates the use of therapeutic oil that allows the cup to move across the skin surface. A vacuum is created and the cup slides over the skin continuously pulling gently on the underlying
structures. Less distinct marks are created with a moving cup.
Moving cupping creates a similar sensation to standard massage. The gliding effect
helps to break up fascial adhesions and muscular tension over larger areas. It can help with neurological pain, localized muscular pain, and reducing scar tissue adhesion. Calm your nervous system and interrupt the pain cycle with moving cupping.
Alternative health practitioners use the heat generated through moxibustion to help increase the flow of energy throughout the body. This happens through the pathways known as meridians. The meridians connect the whole body to the internal organs. Chinese traditional medicine considers the stimulation of energy essential to help your body achieve health and wellness.
Moxibustion is founded on the belief that blockages in the flow of energy lead to mental and physical health problems. Because of this, it’s used to treat:
Back Pain, Arthritis, Headaches, Migraines, Muscle stiffness, Tendonitis, Fatigue, Fertility, Menstrual cramps, Digestive issues.
The practice of auricular acupuncture and era seeding uses specific points mapped on the outer ear. These points are a micro system map, like the hands and feet in reflexology, that correspond to major organs, physiological functions, and symptoms of the human body. When an acupuncture physician treats the outer ear, ear seeding is an alternative to traditional acupuncture needles. Seeds are the perfect size to activate and pressurize ear points, sending signals to the reflex centers of the brain to exert relaxation.
Ear seeds individualized treatments:
For weight loss
For Dizziness on cruise
For diabetes - vagus nerve stimulation
