Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been in use for over thousands of years and has been proven to help a variety of illnesses and prevent many common pathological ailments. This is a safe, painless, and an effective treatment for regaining health and addressing a variety of conditions. It works on the theory that Qi (pronounced as "chee"), a "life-force" that flows through meridians, keeps our bodies in harmony and allow for free movement. When the Qi is not balance, the body will present different symptoms, but the most noticeable symptom is pain. Placing fine, hair-like needles, in specific areas and at specific depths, helps to regulate the surplus or deficiencies of the Qi. Combining acupuncture with herbal medicine will regulate and balance the Qi, giving the body the ability to heal itself.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Like acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine has also been in use for over thousands of years. It comes in many forms, raw ( dried leaves, seeds, twigs), granules, patent formulas. The acupuncturist will formulate the herbal medicine for individual needs. In most cases, the formulas have little to no side-effects making it ideal for the individual to take one formula at a time without the need to add other medications to combat the side-effects, like the way most chemical drugs do.
A form of manual manipulation that leaves bright marks on the skin as a way for the body to heal itself. By placing a glass cup on the surface of the body, the cups will loosen the tensions in the muscles and open up the meridians, therefore, allowing the Qi to flow smoothly. Once the Qi is not obstructed the body may be able to allow the blood to flow and reduce the pain signals released from the nerves.
