Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been used for thousands of years to: help regulate the body, resolve health issues, and relieve pain. Acupuncture involves using very thin sterile needles, into points along meridians that run on the surface of the body. Each meridian has these “points” that are able to help stimulate movement, aid circulation, as well as lower inflammation.

Every organ system has its’ own channel pathway, that can be regulated with acupuncture. For example, there is a channel, that runs down the center line of the body, that has points that help stimulate and regulate the reproductive organs to help conditions that affect fertility. There are several channels that branch through the reproduction organs that are used to help with infertility and other conditions that both women and men experience.

CellumaPro LED Therapy

Light therapy, also known as phototherapy or low-level light therapy, is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions including skin, pain and hair restoration.

The absorbed energy is then used to improve cellular performance. Light therapy can be delivered through light emitting diode (LEDs) devices or cold LASERs, and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. This clinically validated technique is gaining greater and greater acceptance in main stream medicine by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons as a non-invasive therapeutic modality for the treatment and healing of skin and wound conditions and by pain professionals for pain relief.

Phototherapy, or LED red light therapy, has been widely researched and is supported by thousands of peer-reviewed and published clinical research papers from prestigious institutions around the world. Other terms by which light therapy is referred to are photobiostimulation, photobiomodulation, photomedicine, LED light therapy, low-level light therapy (LLLT), red light therapy, cold and soft LASER therapy. All terms are correct, have the same meaning and are used to describe the delivery of light energy to treat a variety of medical and cosmetic conditions.

Moxibustion:

Moxibustion is a topical herbal therapy using Mugwort, that is often used in conjunction with acupuncture. It is an herb that is heated and used over acupuncture points. It can help relieve pain, stimulate blood circulation, relax muscles, and induce a healthier flow of chi, or energy.

The intention of using moxa is to bring heat to the area being treated. Mugwort is known to stimulate blood flow to the pelvic area, especially the uterus. This enhances the healing benefits of acupuncture.
Moxa is warming, moving, and tonifying and it is often used to warm the uterus. There is a common pattern that women can experience where blood circulation might be blocked, impeding the movement to the reproductive organs.

Gua sha:

Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique used by many acupuncturist. Normally massage oil is applied to the skin of the area to be treated. A smooth-edged instrument is used by the acupuncturist to apply short or long strokes on the skin, typically in the area of pain or on the back parallel to the spine. This stroking motion creates raised redness or bruising.

Pain, both acute and chronic, is the most common indication for gua sha. In the Traditional Asian medicine, pain is often associated with stagnation of blood in the local area of discomfort. The guiding principle behind gua sha is that this technique has the ability to break up stagnation, to promote the smooth flow of blood in the area, hence relieving pain.

While gua sha is most commonly used to treat pain, it can also be utilized by TCM clinicians to address conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu, fever, heatstroke, fibromyalgia, strains, sprains, and muscle spasms.

Cupping:

Cupping Therapy is an ancient Chinese modality, in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.

Tuina massage:

Tuina massage utilizes brushing, kneading, rolling/pressing, and rubbing the areas between each of the joints, to attempt to stimulate the immune system, and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles. Other methods utilized are: range of motion, traction, and massage with the stimulation of acupressure points.
