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.
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.
Acupressure is an ancient therapy that involves applying firm pressure to specific points on the body called acupoints, believed to be located along meridians where vital energy flows.
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.
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.
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.
