Chinese Medicine takes a "whole body approach" using different kinds of treatment modalities to balance the energy in your body. We try the best to facilitate a state of optimal physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used healing systems originating in China over 3,000 years ago.
The theories of Traditional Oriental Medicine recognize that all the disorders or diseases from which people suffer can be related to an imbalance in one’s Qi, or life force energy.Once imbalances have been identified and corrected, the body’s self-healing abilities are activated and it heals itself. Oriental Medicine aim in improving the patient’s health both physically and spiritually by rebalancing the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Moxibustion (Okyu) is a therapeutic practice of oriental herbal healing. Dried leaves of "YOMOGI" mugwort leaves called moxa are burned on or near the skin. It is 100% natural and safe.
The penetration of the heat into the body helps to relax the whole body and is very effective in reducing pain and inflammation. Moxibustion also warms the meridians and expels cold, also promotes the smooth flow of Qi and strengthens the yang energy.
Cupping is an ancient medical tool of causing local congestion by creating suction on skin. When the cup is left in place on the skin, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place. Cupping increases blood flow to the effected areas as well as promoting Qi circulation which treats many types of disorders. It may leave slight bruising (up to a week) on the skin but is not painful.
Small-force magnets, applied to the skin at selected acupoints, impact the local flow of Qi. Applied over a significant period of time, the magnets can effect change. Magnets are commonly used to lengthen the positive impact of an acupuncture treatment. Also, successfully used for children and needle-phobic patients.
Electro-acupuncture is a form of acupuncture in which acupuncture needles are attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses between pairs of needles. Electro-acupuncture is most frequently used to treat pain (especially musculoskeletal pain and trauma, back pain, frozen shoulder, etc.) and sometimes to treat nerve injury and conditions such as multiple sclerosis.
