TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE

Traditional Chinese Methods we employ:

Acupuncture: With a rich history of over 3000 years, acupuncture is a time-tested and effective approach for restoring balance and alleviating pain when administered correctly. In our practice, we utilize microcurrent stimulation on the acupoints, facilitating the correction of energy flow, also known as qi or chi. Results are faster than needling.

Chakra Balancing: Our approach to chakra balancing encompasses various techniques such as meditation, yoga, breathwork, and the incorporation of crystals and essential oils. We prioritize meditation, yoga, and breathwork as integral components of our practice.

Traditional Chinese Methods we do not utilize:

Needling for acupuncture: Although the likelihood of experiencing side effects from acupuncture is low, we prioritize safety and minimize potential risks. Patients with bleeding disorders, those taking blood thinners, or individuals with diabetes may face increased risks with needle-based acupuncture. Additionally, while exceedingly rare, there is a minimal chance of needle breakage causing internal organ damage, or deep insertion in the chest region leading to lung collapse. To mitigate these risks, we opt for the exclusive use of microcurrents. Microcurrent stimulation not only works more swiftly but also ensures the safest approach for this type of therapy.

Interesting Facts

 

  1. Ancient origins: Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice that originated in China over 3000 years ago. It is one of the oldest known medical procedures in the world and has evolved over centuries into various styles and techniques.

  2. Balancing energy flow: Acupuncture is based on the concept of balancing the flow of vital energy, known as qi or chi, throughout the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, imbalances or blockages in the flow of qi can lead to health issues, and acupuncture aims to restore harmony and balance.

  3. Fine needles and painless procedure: Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile needles into specific points on the body. Contrary to common perception, acupuncture is generally a painless procedure. The needles used are incredibly thin, much finer than those used for injections or blood tests.

  4. Regulating the nervous system: Scientific research has shown that acupuncture can stimulate the release of endorphins, serotonin, and other neurotransmitters in the body. This stimulation helps to regulate the nervous system, reduce pain perception, and promote a sense of well-being and relaxation.

  5. Widely recognized benefits: Acupuncture is recognized by reputable organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) for its efficacy in treating various conditions. It is commonly used for pain management, including headaches, back pain, and osteoarthritis. Acupuncture is also utilized to address other health issues such as digestive disorders, insomnia, stress, anxiety, and even infertility.

The World Health Organization endorsed acupuncture for treatment for more than two dozen conditions. See the list of treatable health conditions.

It's important to note that while acupuncture has shown positive effects in many cases, it is advisable to seek treatment from a qualified and licensed acupuncturist to ensure proper diagnosis, personalized treatment, and safe practices.
