Traditional Chinese Medicine Therapies

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) views local symptoms as an expression of the whole body's condition. Focus is not only on the symptom, but also treatment on the source or root of the chief complaint)

Acupuncture needles are essential to TCM, but there are many other parts, especially if the patient is needle sensitive...

Don't allow a fear or sensitivity to needles prevent you from the many benefits TCM can provide,

Acupuncture (Body)

Insertion of sterile, hair thin needles at specific points along the interconnected meridians shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems. After insertion, the needle is stimulated in a way to either cool, warm, transform, boost, drain and or move the energetics (Qi, pronounced "Chee") of the patient. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of energy so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended.

This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health (For example, our body heals cuts, broken bones, and the liver repairs itself by generating new liver cells!)

Acupuncture (Ear)

Same theory as body Acupuncture

The ear is a microsystem, and contains points for every part of the body including the brain and all organs.

Ear needles have proven especially effective for all pain, insomnia, anxiety and addictive behaviors (most rehabilitation and recovery centers have added ear Acupuncture to their drug/alcohol programs referred to as the NADA protocol).

Electro-Acupuncture (Stimulation)

Select needles are connected to an Estim machine that generates small electrical pulses into the body (does not hurt, feels like a tapping/tingling sensation) via small clips. This continuous stimulating of an acupuncture point or area desired can influence the cells, tissue and entire bodily systems.

Effective for chronic pain, neurological disease, weight gain, migraines, nausea, menstrual pain, paralysis, arthritis, and many more...

Stacks Image 157

Often used with other Chinese Medical therapies and can be substituted for needles for patients with needle sensitivity.

Therapeutic form of body work used in China for more than 2,000 years.

Special Treatment for patients of all ages, from infancy to old age.

This Chinese therapy makes use of rhythmic compression techniques.

A Practitioner applies pressure to different Acupuncture points, energetic channels, and or groups of muscles to remove blockages throughout the body that prevent the free flow of Qi.

This causes a harmonious flow of Qi throughout the body and brings it back to balance. Besides affecting the flow of energy, Acupressure also realigns the musculoskeletal and ligament relationships.

Tui Na methods include the use of hand techniques to stimulate the soft tissue (muscle and tendons) of the body. The Practitioner may push, lift, squeeze, brush, knead, roll, press, and or rub areas dependent upon chief complaint.

Both Acupressure and Tui Na; increases range of motion, improves nerve regulation, blocks pain receptors and improves blood circulation and oxygen supply. Improvements are to the whole body not just a specific area, whether acute or chronic.

What makes the far infrared (FIR) heating lamp unique is the coated mineral plate which contains a proprietary formula of 33 trace elements. The absorbed FIR energy and minerals into the body according to studies conducted in China and Korea has been clinically shown to promote microcirculation (the movement of blood in all tiny spaces of your body) so it can deliver nutrients, remove waste debris, and activates repair cells to promote healing.
