Each treatment course is usually comprised of several techniques. Together these methods encourage the body to regain balance, so healing and wellness can occur.

 
 
 

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances of energy in the body. From its inception in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.

The theory behind acupuncture is that the healthy functioning of the body is governed by the flow of “qi” (often translated as “energy”) through a system of channels under the skin. When this flow of qi is impaired, illness occurs. By inserting fine needles at various points along the channels, the body’s balance can be restored and the illness resolved.

Acupuncture can’t fully be explained within a western model. But, modern studies have revealed that acupuncture stimulates the peripheral nervous system, which can, under certain circumstances, increase the rate of healing response through promoting blood flow, increasing natural painkillers, stimulating the immune system, relaxing muscles, and balancing the nervous system response, such as “flight or fight.” This may be sufficient to help the body begin healing, or to alleviate symptoms.

CUPPING  Cupping therapy is a technique that uses small glass or plastic cups as suction devices that are placed on the skin. Once the suction has occurred, the cups are gently moved across the skin causing the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles and encourage blood flow. This is an Asian form of bodywork that has become well known since several celebrities were seen with large red marks on their backs.

TUNING FORKS  A tuning fork is a two-pronged fork-like instrument that emits a sound and vibration. As the fork vibrates, the air around it also vibrates and the vibration and sound have a healing effect on the body. By striking the appropriate tuning fork and placing it on specific acupuncture points the vibration can help restore balance to that area and allow healing to occur.
