Health & Living
To prompt the healing process, one or more of the following Oriental Medicine treatment strategies are employed:
Single finger Therapy
Auricular Therapy: Auricular therapy is a health care modality whereby the external surface of the ear, or auricle, is stimulated to alleviate pathological conditions in other parts of the body.
Acupuncture: the insertion of very fine, sterile and single-use needles placed in specific acupuncture points to assist in rebalancing organ and bio-mechanical disharmonies.
Moxibustion: mugwort is used to warm acupuncture points and accelerates the healing process.
Herbal Therapy: prescription of herbal formulas consisting of 5-15 herbs that are individualized for each patient’s condition.
Guasha: rubbing of the skin with a jade tool to facilitate the circulation of blood.
Cupping: glass or plastic cups create suction on the skin to increase circulation and release deep rooted lactic acid.
Nutritional Counselling: specific foods can be added or avoided to help strengthen the body.
Electrical Stimulation: acupuncture needles are inserted and then small alligator clips are placed on the needles. The small 9-volt battery operated machine is then turned on and micro-current stimulates the acupuncture point. E-stim reduces inflammation and releases endorphins. This is similar to the TENS unit that physical therapists use.
