Acupuncture

Descriptions of how acupuncture works can vary depending on to whom you are talking, but the general principle is simple. Acupuncture pinpoints specific areas for stimulation, then uses hair-thin needles to activate those locations, improving circulation, removing blockages, and releasing endorphins. Acupuncture can be used to improve health, prevent disease, alleviate pain, or assist in the healing process. Western medicine has begun to recognize the benefits of acupuncture, with doctors referring patients to acupuncturists and many insurers covering acupuncture.

Cupping

Cupping has been used since 3000 AD to remove toxins, improve blood flow, relieve pain, and assist in treatment. The process is simple, glass or bamboo jars are heated and then placed over specific points on the patient. The heat from the cup creates a seal, allowing the pressure generated to pull blood to the surface of the skin. This Traditional Chinese Medicine technique is usually described as relaxing and can be very beneficial to the overall healing process.

However, you don’t have to be in a health-focused career to benefit from Traditional Chinese Medicine. Contact Acupuncture Center to find out if cupping is the right solution to your health challenge.

Moxibustion

Moxa or moxibustion is a method used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to protect against health concerns like cold or flu and to assist in the healing process. Moxa utilizes the healing power of an herb called mugwort that has been packed into a stick shape. The practitioner burns this stick and places it near specific acupuncture points to warm the area. Many patients feel a flood of warmth as blockages are released from the affected spot.

When We Use Moxibustion

  • There is a painful injury
  • Arthritis is flaring up
  • To assist with digestive difficulties or blockages

  • As a health boost during flu season
