By placing extremely fine needles at certain points along the meridians, the acupuncturist can assist in restoring the proper balance and flow of Qi, allowing your body and its organ systems to have the optimal opportunity to achieve or maintain health. Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine create a strong support system so disease does not have the opportunity to become established in your body. The result of the routine treatment is a strong resilient body with calm, balanced energy. Treatments may also include: Moxibustion, Gua Sha, Tui Na, Cupping, and Accupressure (see below).
Traditional Moxibustion involves burning of Mugwort herb over specific acupuncture points, in order to warm the meridian and enhance circulation of Qi throughout the body. This method is very effective when treating any type of cold invasion in the body.
In modern times, in order to reduce any risk to our patients of scarring from burning Mugwart, our clinic uses state of the art far infrared TDP Lamps, and Smokeless Moxa, to achieve the same effect.
