The ancient art of acupuncture involves the placement of fine needles in the body to achieve an ideal balance of energy. The results of this highly tested practice include but certainly not limited to the reduction of pain or other symptoms, relieving anxiety, reducing stress, alleviating headaches, and giving patients a general sense of well being. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective remedy for over 40 disorders.
Very similar to regular acupuncture, electro-acupuncture also uses needles to effect the same points on the body. The difference is the needles are attached to a device that generates electrical pulses with small clips. The plus side to electrocurrent acupuncture is that it can effect a larger area due to the electric current. This form of acupuncture has been proven to help relieve pain and muscle spasms, improve neurological disorders, fight against skin conditions such as acne and has also positively impacted the endorphin system.
Cupping is a form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed upside down on the skin and utilizing a small vacuum lifting the skin up. This may cause the skin to redden. Cupping is used to promote blood flow by opening up the skins pores which releases toxins from the body. Cupping is not painful and should not last longer than 15 minutes.
Moxibustion is an ancient eastern medicine technique that involves the burning and winowing of mugwort, a sponge like herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion helps alleviate cold, arthritis pain, breach presentation, cancer or stroke symptoms and it promotes Qi. Patients experience a comforting warming sensation which helps catalyze energy flow throughout the body.
Gua Sha is a practice of applying lubricant to a designated area and then utilizing a smooth instrument to perform unidirectional stokes.
