Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 3000 years and has been proven to have many therapeutic affects on the body. Acupuncture helps by increasing the bodies natural healing abilities like increases the immune system, decreases inflammation and helps with pain. It is also very effective in improving mental issues like anxiety, depression and stress by calming the mind and body. It will help you focus and deal with the challenges that life throws at us on a daily basis. It is becoming more recognized in the medical field for its benefits in conjunction with other forms of medical care by accelerating the healing process after surgery and is even beneficial to get prior to having a procedure done.
Ear Acupuncture Therapy
The ear is a micro system of the body. Along with body acupuncture, auricular acupuncture may be added to the treatment. I do Battle field acupuncture and the NADA protocol to help with pain and emotional support. Ear seeds may be applied to the ear so that the patient can stimulate them once they leave to prolong the therapeutic effect of the treatment.
Cupping and Gua sha
Cupping can be done with glass cups, silicone cups and bamboo cups. I use glass and silicone cups. It promotes the free flow of qi and blood in the meridians which reduces pain and inflammation. It is used for back, shoulder and leg pain. Gastrointestinal problems and asthma. It also is very relaxing!
Gua sha is popular for facial sculpting and reducing puffiness. It is used in Chinese medicine to release pathogens (colds and illness) from the body and move stagnation and reduce pain.
