What to expect for your acupuncture appointment:
Depending on the case, one or more of these modalities may be recommended. There is no additional charge.
Electrical Stimulation: A method of acupuncture in which an electrical current is applied to needles that are inserted in the body to produce a combined needle and electrical stimulus. It is very effective in the treatment of orthopedic conditions.
Cupping: A therapeutic method of treatment in which suction is produced when a lighted alcohol swab is placed inside the cup, burning the oxygen to create a vacuum after the cup has been placed on the skin. The negative pressure created can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. It is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue etc.
Gua Sha: A treatment method where the skin on the back, limbs, and other parts of the body is lubricated and then scraped with a ceramic spoon or other smooth edged tool. The area is scraped until the red papules become fully visible on skin. This method helps release unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.
Moxibustion: A method of applying a heat stimulus to the body by burning the dried and sifted leaf particles from the herb mugwort on or close to the skin. It works great for relieving aches and pains by stimulating blood flow.
Tui Na: Therapeutic massage.
