Acupuncture and Electroacupuncture

 

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body according to Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).

It’s a technique used for balancing the flow of energy or vital life force — known as Qi — believed to flow through the meridians in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, it is considered that your energy flow will re-balance and will help to relieve pain making you feel better.

 

 

Electroacupuncture involves stimulating two needles with a very low electrical current and it is intended to help increase the potential healing effects of standard acupuncture.

Cupping

 

Cupping therapy is one of the oldest and most effective method of releasing toxins from body tissue and organs.

It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction improves the flow of energy in the body and facilitates healing.

Cupping increases blood flow and circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue and stimulate the immune system.

Moxa

 

Moxibustion is another therapeutic method in traditional Chinese medicine, and it commonly goes simultaneously with acupuncture, it involves burning ground mugwort on or very near the surface of the skin helping to stimulate and warm certain acupuncture points along your body. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body, strengthen the blood and dispel certain pathogenic influences, getting relief from pain and inflammation and maintaining good health.

Ear Acupuncture

 

Auricular acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical procedure consisting of inserting fine needles to stimulate specific points of the ear. It is very effective in treating addictions and it also supports emotionally during the detoxification process from toxic substances including drugs, alcohol and tobacco.

It treats anxiety, insomnia, headaches, depression and many other conditions.

Guasha

The name Gua sha comes from the Chinese word for scraping and it means “scrape away illnesses”. It may also be called spooning or coining and it involves using tools such as jade or rose quartz with a lubricated ointment to scrape the skin along the meridian applying pressure repeatedly to relieve pain and tension.

In facial treatments works by promoting more blood circulation when scraping the skin gently, stimulating a certain meridian point which corresponds to an organ in the body that is responsible for the skin’s health.
