“TCM helps the whole person
not just the symptom”

Session Information

 

Needling
This is where very fine needles are inserted into acupuncture points on the body. Sometimes the needles are manipulated by hand.
Most people associate acupuncture with this form of treatment.

Moxa or Moxibustion
Moxa is a Chinese herb which is burned and held close to acupuncture points to warm the point. Moxa is sometimes added to the top of the acupuncture needle. This can be used with or without needling.

Laser Acupuncture
A small laser light is used to stimulate acupuncture points instead of using needles. No pain is felt during laser treatment.

Cupping or Fire Cupping
Cupping is performed with a glass cup which is heated with a flame to create a vacuum in the cup. The glass cup is placed flush against the patients skin. As the air cools in the cup a vacuum is created which pulls on the skin causing an acupressure effect. The skin will be marked with ring shapes after a cupping treatment.

Auricular or Ear Acupuncture
Ear seeds are small seeds from the Vaccaria plant. They are held in place by adhesive tape. These allow pressure to be applied to the points for a few days or up to one week.
