- NutripunctureNutripuncture is a very efficient method that restores the vital meridians of the body. Nutripuncture works like acupuncture, however, nutripuncture uses nutrients which are small tablets absorbed with homeopathic dilution, almost immediately creating and strengthening the cellular levels of the organs. Nutripuncture restores the information and functions of organs while removing emotional blockages. These nutrients were first created in France about 30 years ago and are now used worldwide.
- Infrared Heat LampInfrared energy heats the body from the inside. The heat and other frequencies of the lamp offer improved circulation, hydration, oxygenation, and often disables or weakens harmful microorganisms, including those that cause Lyme disease and many other conditions. The frequencies emitted by this lamp are extremely beneficial.
- Gua ShaGua Sha is a treatment that is used primarily for early cold symptoms or tightness in large muscle groups. This technique involves using a dull-edged device to gently scrape the skin, usually the upper back and neck. It is not painful. There is no bleeding or scabbing. You may experience some slight bruising that will last 1 to 3 days. Post treatment you will be advised to keep the area covered and avoid windy conditions for a day or two.
- MOXAMoxibustion is a heating method of treatment using the Chinese herb mugwort. Moxibustion is used for treating pain, trauma, and certain cold-related injuries or conditions. The mugwort is compressed onto a stick that is burned near the body or onto small cones that are placed on the body with a protective barrier that prevents burning. Both these methods introduce heat into the affected area, providing pain relief. There is some limited smoke and odor when using moxibustion. Please advise your practitioner if you have asthma, other respiratory conditions, or if you are sensitive to odors.
- CuppingCupping is a technique that is most often used for musculoskeletal pain such as back pain. In this technique, small glasses or plastic cups will be placed on the affected area and a suction will be created, drawing some of your tissue inside the cup. Your practitioner may apply a thin layer of oil or vaseline to your skin and may move the cups around the affected area. There is no bleeding. You may feel a sensation similar to that of being massaged. You may experience round bruises over the affected area that may last 3 to 5 days. Post treatment you will be advised to keep the area covered and avoid windy conditions for a day or two.
- Electric AcupunctureElectro stimulation uses small electrodes which are attached to acupuncture needles in order to send an electrical impulse into the muscle. It is most often used for musculoskeletal pain and paralysis. Clients feel a mild pulsing in conjunction with the electrical impulse. It is not painful or uncomfortable. If you do experience pain or discomfort, advise your acupuncturist who will adjust the strength of the impulse to a more comfortable setting.
- Classical AcupunctureIt is believed that there is an energetic substance called Qi. Qi is inhaled through the lungs at birth and circulates through specific channels, called meridians. When Qi is deficient, out of balance or stagnated, a person begins to feel ill, tired and out of balance. Acupuncture helps restore the balance of Qi by cleaning blocked meridians, strengthening the immune system as well as strengthening deficient organs while calming hyperactive ones.
