Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture, herbs and more, has been used for thousand of years to promote optimal health and to treat illness. Acupuncture points are stimulated through various modalities including needles, herbs, cups and other manual techniques. This process allows energy and substance to move more freely and clears blocks that create dis-ease in the body. Acupuncture has an effect on not only the body, but the mind and spirit as well. Because acupuncture treats the root cause, it is beneficial for a wide variety of symptoms.
Some of the things that acupuncture treats include (but are not limited to) pain, stress, anxiety, depression, high or low blood pressure, side effects of chemo, infertility, disorders of the thyroid, recovery from physical or emotional trauma, side-effects of surgery, overall improvement of wellness and daily function, sleep disturbances and much more.
Together, you and your practitioner will decide which modalities are right for you! When indicated, cupping, gua sha, moxa, Chinese herbs, zero balancing and/or tui na will be included within your acupuncture services.
