Health & Living

To prompt the healing process, one or more of the following Oriental Medicine treatment strategies are employed:

Acupuncture

Moxibustion

Vitamin C - 120mg
Vitamin B1 - 250mg
Canxi - 13mg

Electrical Stimulation

Nutritional Counselling

Cupping

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.

Tuina/Acupressure: massaging techniques to activate channel and organ systems.

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.
