Traditional acupuncture can be an effective therapy to help restore balance, promote physical and emotional harmony and enhance vitality. Traditional acupuncture is a tried and tested system of complementary medicine which has been used in China for thousands of years to restore, promote and maintain good health. It is based on the understanding that the body's vital energy (known as Qi) moves through a network of channels beneath the skin. When the flow of this energy becomes blocked, depleted or disturbed it can cause a range of physical or emotional symptoms and ailments. Acupuncturists insert very fine, sterile needles into specific points on the body to rebalance and regulate the flow of Qi and promote healing.
Moxibustion involves applying heat from a slow burning herb over acupuncture points to stimulate circulation and warm the channels. The use of moxa has been found to provide relief from a variety of disorders such as chronic pain, arthritis, autoimmune diseases, gynecological and infertility conditions.
We combine the use of traditional recommendations along with modern, well researched nutritional compounds as part of treatment for most disorders. This may include food, vitamins, and/or supplements.
An integral part of Oriental medicine, the use of herbal medicines can substantially aid in the restoration and maintenance of balance in the body. Herbs are highly specific in their actions and herbal formulas contain unique compounds that target both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s imbalances.
Made from organic substances such as plants, flowers, minerals, and other natural substances, herbal remedies have been used effectively for thousands of years, in fact, serving as a model for most modern drug therapies. The use of herbal or botanical substances very rarely elicits side effects, but monitoring by a trained professional is always essential.
Cupping is an ancient form of therapy which uses sterilized glass cups of various sizes that are placed on specific parts of the body in order to remove toxins, increase circulation and alleviate pain. Cupping is most often used for both chronic and acute pain, respiratory disorders and issues requiring increasing blood flow in order to heal.
