Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture

The insertion of hair-fine needles just below the surface of the skin that stimulate specific points along energy channels in the body in order to achieve balance. Acupuncture has been scientifically proven to release pain-reducing endorphins; affect pain perception and mood; and improve circulation and immune function.

Cosmetic Acupuncture
Facial rejuvenation: a painless, non surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process using acupuncture needles to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

Relax and unwind and get the refreshed rejuvenated look you’ve always wanted.

Electro Acupuncture
The application of mild electro-stimulation on certain acupoints to enhance the needling effect.

Cupping
Cupping is the use of suction cups, made of either glass or plastic, that is placed along corresponding skin surface. Suction is created by means of heat or suction device to cause local congestion for the purpose of stimulating blood circulation, balancing the flow of qi, breaking up obstructions and creating an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.

Chinese Herbal Medicine
The specific combination of medicinal herbs that work synergistically to treat a patient’s overall condition. The herbs may be taken in liquid extract, powder or pill form. Alternatively, dry, loose herbs may be prepared and taken orally as a tea on a regular basis and as prescribed by the practitioner.
