Acupuncture treatment uses your body's energy to heal and prevent disease. Fine needles stimulate certain points in the body to help the flow of energy in order to restore balance in your body.
Cupping treatment can relax muscle tension and promote blood circulation. Warm cups are applied to the skin’s surface and create negative pressure. The key function of cupping treatment is to activate the flow of energy and blood in order to help your body generate new cells efficiently.
Moxibustion treatment uses focused heat to promote healthy blood flow at particular points in the body. This treatment is especially suitable for patients with weaker constitutions. My clinic uses an electric moxibustion stick that is safer and does not emit any smoke.
Gua sha treatment uses a special tool to scrape the skin. This helps to improve blood flow, release toxins, stimulate lymphatic drainage, and promote an immune response by bringing beneficial cells to the area.
Ear acupuncture is another form of acupuncture treatment. This method allows for continuous stimulation of points over several days by attaching tiny needles or “seeds” to points on the ear. It works particularly well for chronic pain, asthma, rhinitis, weight loss, and addiction.
Chinese herbal medicine is often used along with acupuncture to optimize health outcomes. The mechanism of herbal medicine is different from modern, synthetic medicine. It is gentle and safe for your body but works very effectively.
