In addition to Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, our staff of licensed acupuncturists also practice these other acupuncture styles and their associated traditions:
- Auricular Acupuncture
Auricular acupuncture is applying acupuncture to only your ears. By limiting acupuncture to the ears only, our auricular acupuncturists can improve results and make you feel more comfortable. For some of our patients, using needles on other parts of their bodies is uncomfortable. Auricular acupuncture offers a pleasurable alternative to get the help that they need.
- Five Element Acupuncture
Classical five element acupuncture has been part of traditional Chinese medicine since its beginning. These elements are wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Everything in the natural world, including your body, is made up of a combination of these five elements, and in order to have good health, you need to have these elements in balance. By using five element acupuncture our practitioner can help you achieve the balance that you need and allow for a free flow of Qi throughout your body.
- Korean Acupuncture
This form of acupuncture has a big emphasis on the five elements theory and taking into account a person’s body type and constitution with a focus on hand therapy.
- Trigger Point Acupuncture
Trigger point therapy is a muscular therapy that our acupuncturists and massage therapists use in order to treat pain. Trigger points are specific areas in your muscles where you feel stabbing pain, weakness, tingling or aching pain. The pain from trigger points can be localized or affect the entire muscle. Trigger point therapy aims to help you relieve the current pain and prevent future pain.
Our acupuncture techniques include:
Cupping is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that can be used in conjunction with acupuncture therapy or as a standalone treatment. It’s an effective treatment for respiratory problems, gastrointestinal problems and back pain. It can also be used to alleviate depression and reduce swelling in joints.
Electroacupuncture treatment is a form of acupuncture that uses electrical currents to stimulate acupoints and restore healing to your body. It uses the same meridians and acupoints as acupuncture but affects them in a different way.
Acupressure treatment is a traditional Chinese healing technique that stimulates points along your meridians, or pathways of energy. These pathways criss-cross your body and carry Qi, or vital life energy. By stimulating specific points on your meridians, an acupressure practitioner will alleviate your symptoms, increase your vitality, and clear blockages of Qi in your body.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese technique that can be used in conjunction with acupuncture. In moxibustion, our practitioners will burn the herb mugwort to help with healing.
- Tui Na
Tui Na massage therapy is a bodywork technique that is used in Chinese medicine. It has been described by some recipients as a cross between Shiatsu massage and acupressure. Chinese acupressure massage Tui Na is composed of compression of the channels and muscles in your body, and it also includes applying direct pressure to acupoints, like with acupressure.
Reiki healing therapy is a spiritual type of energy healing which is facilitated by a laying on of the hands. The energy is obtained from the Universe or from one’s higher power. Our Reiki practitioners then acts as a conduit and directs the healing energy into a person, place or thing where healing is needed.
- Gua Sha
Gua Sha massage is a traditional Chinese medical technique that is not as well known as acupuncture, but just as effective. Gua means to scrape and Sha means toxins, which can give you a clue about how the practice is used. During a Gua Sha session, our practitioners will use a special tool to gently scrape your skin and stimulate circulation.
