For thousands of years, acupuncture has been used to restore, promote and maintain optimal health. In ancient China, practitioners discovered meridians in the body, each meridian containing it’s own specialized points. Today these meridians and points are researched and used to heal all over the world!
Acupuncture uses fine needles at certain points on the body’s meridians that are chosen by the practitioner according to the imbalance of the body. The tip of the needle meets the qi, or energy, in the meridian in order to create balance between yin and yang, and to promote the free flow of qi. Often times when there is discomfort, there is stagnation of qi in that area of the body. Acupuncture is able to move the stuck qi and alleviate chronic or acute pain. Acupuncture is also used for many other health concerns such as infertility, mental and emotional disorders, cardiovascular disease, asthma, allergies, and digestive issues to name only a few.
Herbal medicine is the therapeutic use of plants, and is prescribed based on the individuals needs. Herbs are all natural and of the highest quality. Many formulas consist of commonly known herbs such as dong quai and goji berries. Different herbs have been effectively used for a wide range of medicinal purposes including pain relief, hormone balancing, sleep enhancement, improved digestion, and stress relief.
Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medical technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a leafy, warming herb to facilitate healing.
