Traditional Chinese Medicine nurtures the whole person, rather than isolating symptoms. By bringing balance to the body, mind, and spirit triad, the patient can relieve pain, recover, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Acupuncture is a
wonderful modality for chronic pain, but is not just for people with a specific complaint.
A modality in acupuncture designed to provide advanced level assessment and treatment protocols to work with orthopedic injuries. When an acupuncture needle is used on a motor point with an electric impulse, it creates a contraction and relaxation phase releasing tight contracted bands of muscle. This is like hitting a reset button on the muscle. The results are immediate pain relief and improved mobility.
Also known as trigger point needling,
dry needling uses a small, solid filament needle which is inserted into a painful contracted and knotted muscle to create a local twitch reflex. This type of therapy is minimally invasive when performed by a well trained acupuncturist as opposed to other practitioners. It decreases muscle contraction, improves flexibility, and decreases pain.
Healing touch has always been helpful in
achieving wellness. My treatment is made specifically to meet each individual’s needs. I mostly use manual therapy, trigger point therapy, acupressure, and deep tissue massage to achieve desired outcomes, promote tissue healing, and gain relief.
Cupping is another Chinese Medicine
painless modality widely used. It is the use of suction cups to relieve areas with tension, to improve blood flow to damaged tissue and to reduce pain. Although there may be some marks on your skins after this therapy, these go away usually within a week.
Vitamin B12 helps your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves. B12 injections are sometimes used to offset the many symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency, such as fatigue and weakness, poor moods, and low concentration.
