TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE
Enjoy the comfort and convenience of Mobile Treatments. Although, acupuncture is one of the main treatments provided as a part of the powerful and long-standing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) system, TCM includes a range of traditional medicine practices originating in China. TCM practices include such treatments as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, food therapy, Tui Na and Gua Sha.
ACUPUNCTURE: Research has shown that acupuncture increases blood circulation, production of neurotransmitters and some hormones and biochemical substances in the body. Acupuncture increases oxygenation of the tissues which helps to flush toxins, waste products, and other accumulated particles and chemicals from tissues, improving their overall function.
CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE is a major aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which focuses on restoring and maintaining health. Herbs are used with the goal of restoring balance by nourishing the body, restoring what the body does not have or prompting the body to produce what it needs to heal.
ELECTRO-ACUPUNCTURE is quite like traditional acupuncture but provides a stronger effect. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted into specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electrical pulses using small clips. For more about this method, please call for a free consultation.
TUI NA is a manual therapy based on traditional meridian concepts. Tui Na applies massage techniques and body work modalities that are closer to the work of chiropractors, osteopaths and physical therapists.
GUA SHA is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of traditional medicine. Gua means to rub or friction. Sha is the term used to describe congestion of blood at the surface of the body. Gua Sha promotes normal circulation to the muscles, tissues and organs directly beneath the surface treated. The patient experiences immediate changes in stiffness and pain and mobility.
CUPPING refers to an ancient art in which cups are applied to the acupuncture points/skin and the pressure inside the cup is reduced. The result is a reddened area which subsides following treatment. Some bruising can occur. Cups are usually left in place for 5 to 15 minutes. Cupping is used for the treatment of gastrointestinal disorders, ling conditions such as chronic cough and bronchitis, paralysis, and pain. It can also be used for many other disorders.
FAR INFRARED HEAT THERAPY Far Infrared therapy (FIR) involves the use of Far Infrared rays to gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detox the physical body, as well as the mind. Far Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles and bone. Far Infrared therapy very gently increases blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry blood.
