ACUPUNCTURE

ACUPUNCTURE

Centuries old, acupuncture has a long history of success treating disease, pain and injury. It enhances your life by strengthening your body, calming your mind, and optimizing your health.

​Acupuncture is proven to be effective at treating acute and chronic pain. It speeds the healing of injuries, illnesses as well as boosts physical and emotional aspects of health to improve overall function and well-being. Acupuncture works by addressing the root cause of imbalance and by stimulating your body’s own natural ability to heal itself. Acupuncture is natural, safe, effective and drug-free.

 

During a treatment, ultra thin needles are inserted at specific points on the body. Stimulation of these points affects the nervous system, triggers the release of the body’s natural chemicals, and increases circulation of blood and Qi. 

Acupuncture is becoming more widely accepted in the medical community because it works. There are now successful studies happening all over the world. If you are sick, injured or suffer from chronic pain, stress, anxiety or other chronic ailments, acupuncture can help alleviate and treat your condition.

 

Herbal Medicine is often used in conjunction to acupuncture and eastern medicine for optimal healing benefits as well.

FACIAL REJUVENATION

This treatment balances the body, mind, and spirit at the same time as the skin. Cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce wrinkles, diminish fine lines, remove age spots, and lift droopy eyelids.

 

Acupuncture has been used in a cosmetic context for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a non-invasive treatment achieved by using acupuncture needles. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process uniquely designed to promote the individual’s physical beauty, while simultaneously promoting emotional health and well-being by fostering relaxation and insight.

Sometimes referred to as an "acupuncture facelift" or "facial rejuvenation," cosmetic acupuncture often is used as an alternative to surgical facelifts and other conventional procedures said to reverse signs of aging in the skin.

MOXIBUSTION

Moxa is a technique that involves the burning of mugwort - a small, spongy herb - to facilitate healing.

 

Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of TCM, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi, and maintain general health.

In TCM, moxibustion is typically used on people who have a cold or stagnant condition. The burning of moxa is believed to expel cold and warm the meridians, which leads to a smoother flow of blood and Qi, and can relieve pain. In Western medicine, moxibustion has successfully been used to improve fertility and to turn breech babies into a normal head-down position prior to childbirth.

ELECTRO-ACUPUNCTURE.

Electroacupuncture is the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles as a means of stimulating the acupoints.

The needles are attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated.

 Electro-acupuncture has been especially effective for treating neurological diseases, paralysis, strokes, Bells palsy, chronic pain, and spasms
