Acupuncture

Acupuncture is performed with sterile hair thin needles, which are inserted into the skin. The locations of the points used have been found to have a high concentration of nerve endings bundles and capillaries. The nerve fibers transmit signals to the brain to release endorphins and norepinephrine which blocks pain and stimulates the immune system to heal the body.

Electrical Stimulation

A low level electrical current is applied to the acupuncture needles located at various points on the body. This technique is performed to stimulate the body’s Qi and healing processes.

Cupping

This is one of the safest treatments for pain relief and healing. A suction cup is placed on the skin at the affected area. The vacuum created by the cups allows blood stasis, and draws blood and lymph to the area, which helps to clean the system of the patient. Cupping is used as first line of defense for the common cold or flu. It is also used for relaxation, stress relief, and pain suppression for the neck and shoulder area.

Moxibustion

An herb called Mugwort is burned on either on the handle of the needle, directly above the skin, on salt, or on a slice of Ginger. This brings warmth to the acupuncture points and adds the healing properties of the herb to nourish the point and results in faster healing.

Gua Sha & Tuina

  • Gua Sha: Stroking the lubricated skin repeatedly with pressure with a smooth edged tool. This helps the skin to release toxins, external invasions, and breaks up muscle adhesions.
  • Tuina: This hands-on body treatment uses brushing, rolling, pressing and rubbing to move energy in the meridians and muscles. By stimulating acupuncture points, non-musculoskeletal and musculoskeletal conditions can be treated.
  • Active Isolated Stretching: This stretching technique takes clients through a range of stretches that isolate each individual muscle group. With this technique will come greater mobility, decreased pain, and teaches the recipient what they can do so on their own.
