Acupuncture and Herb
We specialize in adapting ancient medicine modalities for modern health care. The bridge to health is a continuous journey, and we help patients reach their health goals through preventative and restorative Oriental medicine. We utilize various Oriental modalities such as acupuncture, cupping, herbal supplements, nutrition, lifestyle modifications, and many more to assist you on your quest to restore balance in the body. These techniques can be used to assist in the treatment of a variety of conditions.
Acupuncture and Acupressure
Electro-acupuncture therapy is a technique that is done by inserting the acupuncture needles in the scalp or body and then connecting the electro-machine to stimulate the acupoint. Use electro-stimulation instead of hand stimulation to treat disease.
Use electro-acupuncture for conditions such as headache, dizziness, tinnitus, deafness, seizures, chorea, facial spasm, hysteria, stroke, or aphasia.
Ear seeds work by putting light pressure on specific acupoints on the ear to stimulate that point, auriculotherapy is very similar in effect to that of acupuncture by way of activating your energy meridians. In TCM, the ear is a microsystem of the whole body with dozens of pressure points ready to transform body and mind. These points have healing properties such as calming the mind, boosting immunity, reducing pain, rebalance endocrine system and more.
We have four main cupping treatments performed:
- Air cupping: a suction-only method
- Fire cupping: may involve both suction and controlled medicinal bleeding
- Running cupping: involves moving suctioned cups around the body after applying oil to massage the desired area
- Flash cupping: involves quick, repeated suction and release of cups on an area of the body
Cupping has also been used for back and neck pain, skin diseases such as acne and hives, lowering cholesterol, headache, knee arthritis, sport injury, improving immune function.
Infrared light therapy
Infrared light therapy is a treatment that may help skin, muscle tissue, and other parts of your body heal. It exposes you to low levels of infrared light which is a type of energy your eyes can’t see, but your body can feel as heat. A part of your cells called mitochondria, sometimes called the “power generators” of your cells, soak it up and make more energy. Some experts think this helps cells repair themselves and become healthier. This spur healing in skin and muscle tissue.
