Acupuncture: This treatment involves the use of very fine needles that are inserted in the body at specific points. This process is believed to adjust and alter the body’s fascial alignment and nervous system into healthier patterns, and is used to treat a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions.
Cupping: A technique in which rounded glass cups are warmed and applied to an individual’s bare skin to treat local musculoskeletal dysfunction or blood stagnation. Once the cup is warmed, the oxygen in the cup is eliminated so that a vacuum is created; this holds the cup to the skin, and encourages the flow of blood to the area beneath the cup. The vacuum also allows the release of toxins through the skin. Particularly useful for localized pain, insomnia, cellulite reduction and some emotional conditions. Some bruising is possible and indicates that toxins have been pulled out of the area.
Chinese Herbal Therapy: A customized formula may be used in addition to acupuncture. Formulas are available as liquid tinctures, teas, or pills.
Gua Sha: Involves gentle scraping of the skin to remove stagnation that hinders immune function. Also decreases inflammation and improves blood flow to treatment area. Excellent for pain, stiffness, lung conditions, hepatitis, and nausea.
