Acupuncture: treats the whole person, rather than the disease. This means that the acupuncturist looks at the patient as a whole to find the origins of an illness. Very fine needles are then inserted to rebalance the flow of energy in the system, by dispersing blockages or by tapping reservoirs to replenish energy, where the body requires it. Acupuncture has always been used as a preventative medicine to correct imbalances in their early stages, so that more serious conditions do not develop.

 

Herbs and nutrition: Traditional Chinese herbal medicine is at least 2500 years old and often used as an important adjunct to acupuncture treatment. They are usually dispensed in pills, capsules, tinctures, or in raw form, which requires boiling as a tea. Herbal formulas are gentle yet potent. They should be prescribed and taken under the guide and supervision of a certified herbalist. Western Pharmacology is beginning to acknowledge these natural counterparts without the side effects of processed pharmaceuticals.

 

Chinese Medical Massage (Tuina): by promoting the flow of energy through the body, muscle pain and stiffness is greatly reduced. Tuina promotes the lymphatic system and venous return by acting like a pump to get rid of the toxins in the muscles such as lactic acid. "Fresh blood" can get into the tissues and regenerate the cells with oxygen.            Plus it's a great way to relax!!!

 

Cupping: glass or bamboo cups are placed on the skin, with a vacuum to suck out the toxins to the superficial layer, where the body can deal them more effectively. Cupping also stimulates the lymphatic system. This treatment is good for tight neck and shoulders and also for the very start of a cold or flu.

 


 

Moxibustion: treats disease by applying gentle heat to acupuncture points. Smouldering herbs are held near the needle to create a warm sensation. Moxa is particularly effective for ailments such as 
bronchial asthma, bronchitis, certain types of paralysis, and arthritic disorders.
