ACUPUNCTURE & CUPPING

Orthopedic Acupuncture


Similar to Sports Injury Acupuncture, Orthopedic Acupuncture focuses on relieving pain and improving function in the body, such as improving Range of Motion (R.O.M) and other dysfunctions. Taking a Musculoskeletal approach by combining acupuncture, motor point and trigger point release techniques. Our comprehensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology paired with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory helps us to access and pinpoint the source of musculoskeletal pain and correct imbalances in the body.

Cupping


Like acupuncture, cupping is a therapy that is part of Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Cupping works well for treating pain and many other complaints. Cupping treats muscular pain due to muscle tension, muscle spasms, old injuries, as well as many lung issues. Cupping therapy works by releasing stagnation and pain from the meridians or channels (energy pathways) of the body to relieve pain. It drains toxins and pathogens to promote circulation and moves lymph to detoxify the blood to help strengthen the immune system.

Sports Injury Acupuncture


Sports Injury Acupuncture uses treatment protocols focusing on specific body regions using knowledge of Western anatomy and physiology paired with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory in order to achieve pain relief and sustain pain management.

Relaxing Stress-Relief Acupuncture


Relaxing Stress-Relief Acupuncture focuses on relieving stress and tension in the body and relieves common complaints caused by ongoing stressors such as, muscle tension pain, tight neck, tight shoulders, tension headaches, anxiety, digestive issues and pain syndromes such as Fibromyalgia.

Balancing Acupuncture


Balancing Acupuncture allows your body to balance itself resulting in free-flowing qi throughout your body. Often someone who wants to try acupuncture out of curiosity for the first time without any real main complaints or issues will request a “Balancing” acupuncture.

Also those who have had ongoing acupuncture even after issues have resolved, will come in for a “Tune-up” acupuncture, often seasonally in order to prevent Qi Stagnation in the meridians (Qi or energy channel pathways) of the body to keep the Qi free-flowing, thereby sustaining wellness and remaining pain-free.

Moxa


Moxibustion is a healing technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to aid in the body’s natural healing process. Moxibustion is used to help people with cold or stagnant conditions. Burning moxa is helps to expel cold and warm the meridians pathways, which creates the smooth flow of Qi and blood. Moxibustion also supports the yang energy, which strengthens and increases the original Qi. Moxibustion can be used to treat many conditions including back pain, muscle stiffness, headaches, tendonitis, arthritis, digestive disorders, anxiety, menstrual cramps, irregular periods and infertility.

Herbal Remedies & Supplements


Herbal Remedies and Supplements – practitioner-grade supplements, vitamins, digestive aids and Chinese herbs, including patented formulas. Raw herbs and herbal powders are ordered for individual patients on an as-needed basis.

Diet Therapy


TCM diet therapy recommendations are incorporated into acupuncture treatments when necessary. Diet therapy can help with issues such as: digestive issues, energy, mood and overall health and wellbeing.

Tui Na


Tui Na is a therapeutic form of massage therapy used under Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years. This therapy is used along with acupuncture for many issues such as sports injury and pain, overuse injuries and chronic tissue issues. It is used when appropriate to affect different energy channels of the body, creating an open and even flow of Qi and Blood in order to help restore balance to the body.
