Acupuncture – The insertion of very fine needles into the skin at specific areas of the body.
Electro-Acupuncture – The use of a small current of electricity, attached to the acupuncture needles, which boosts the acupuncture effect at regulating “qi” or energy.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture – The use of acupuncture to increase the production of collagen, improve lymph flow, moisture the skin and improve facial muscle tone to restore facial appearance in a safe and holistic manner.
Tui Na Massage – Chinese Therapeutic Massage for general health or given at specific areas to relieve pain and relax joints and muscles.
Shoni-Shin – The use of a light scratching therapy to activate specific areas of the body without using needles. This modality is typically used with children and infants.
Cupping – The use of glass or plastic cups placed on the body to move stagnant energy, promote blood flow and encourage the removal of toxic waste products (lactic acid) out of the muscle areas. By encouraging the circulation of blood and oxygen through the muscle tissues, healing is enhanced.
Stretching / Muscle Energy Techniques – Specific stretching regimens to release tight muscles and enhance the flow of oxygen and blood to help the body repair those muscles.
Heat Lamp / Moxa – We use heat therapy to dilate blood vessels and relax muscles, thus promoting the free flow of new oxygen and blood into the muscle tissue. In some cases, heat is also used to activate the circulation of qi and energy in “deficient” patients.
