Welcome to the mind-body healing treatment.
Acupuncture originates from China and has been used for thousands of years to treat a myriad of conditions from musculoskeletal pain to internal organ pathologies. Tiny needles are used to stimulate Qi flow within the organs and throughout the 12 main meridians of the body.
Tui-Na is a form of massage where pressure points and meridians are activated through the use of massage techniques by hands.
Cupping therapy is the application of suction cups to different parts of the body. These cups are used to relieve stagnation of qi and blood, which are often responsible for pain within the body.
Chinese herbs may be given in the form of teas, granules (powder), pills, tinctures and/or capsules to address a pattern of disease. Herbal formulas are prescribed according to a patient's individual set of symptoms and created specifically for that person.
In the Trigger Point Injection procedure, a acupuncturist inserts a small needle into the patient's trigger point. The injection contains a local anesthetic or saline, and may include a corticosteroid. With the injection, the trigger point is made inactive and the pain is alleviated.
Traditionally a physician would just use straight lidocaine that would also help numb the area that was being treated. While the lidocaine definitely helps the procedure be more comfortable, we find that adding additional nutrients to the solution increases the outcomes.
Typically these will include: Dextrose 5%, B12 (hydroxocobalamin), Traumeel (a homeopathic anti-inflammatory)
This solution works exceptionally well in providing nutrients the muscles needs to heal and speeds the recovery time.
Electro stimulation or E-stim is a process of applying very small amounts of electrical stimulation to acupuncture needles in order to relieve muscle pain and spasm.
