Trusted for over 4000 years, Acupuncture is one of the most successful and widely acclaimed forms of alternate medicine therapies.
During the treatment, specialized sterile, disposal and FDA approved needles are inserted into the body at specific points of selected meridians called acupuncture points. The pressure created releases endorphins in the body and promotes natural healing.
Acupuncture stimulates and balances the flow of Qi in the meridians and treats a variety of ailments, emotional disorders and psychological problems.
Aside from traditional Acupuncture, we also offer:
Electro-acupuncture is a relatively newer form of therapy. It is similar to traditional acupuncture in the context that needles are inserted into the skin at specific points, but the main difference is that a small electric current is passed between a pair of needles. The needles are connected to a special device that generates small pulses and produces special stimulations that can heal a variety of conditions. Diseases like neurosis, nerve palsy, angina and high blood pressure etc are mostly treated through electro-acupuncture.
The cupping therapy is amongst the oldest forms of Chinese medicine therapies. During the treatment, congestion or suction is created on the skin locally through combustion or extrusion which in turn mobilizes the flow of blood in the body and helps balance the whole body, reduce swelling, relieve toxins and ease pain.
The cups are placed at specific acupuncture points in the body to produce stimulation and balance the Qi flow in the meridians. Cupping is usually helpful in treating muscular pain, swelling and inflammation, diarrhea, toxicity accumulation, fever etc.
Moxibustion is a form of traditional Chinese medicine therapy in which a small and spongy herb called mugwort is burnt to create moxa which promotes healing. Moxibustion helps in strengthening immunity, enhances blood circulation and maintains the overall health of an individual.
During the treatment, a moxa stick is placed close to the skin at the acupuncture points. Moxibustion warms off the body’s meridians and relieves recurring pain and inflammation. The patient experiences a relaxing heating sensation that helps in conditions like frozen shoulder, diabetes, pelvic inflammation, prostatitus etc.
Gua Sha (also termed as ‘scrapping’) is based on skin based theory of Chinese Medicine. In this naturopathy, special tools called scraping swabs made with materials like horns or jade are used to apply pressured strokes along the muscles. The skin is lubricated prior to the therapy, and the repetitive movement along the skin not only clears the meridians and relieves toxicity but also improves blood circulation.
The GuaSha therapy produces immediate relaxing effects for high blood pressure, muscular pain, heat stroke etc. Traditional GuaSha eases the feeling of fatigue and tiredness and increases the secretion of sweat.
A form of ancient Chinese medicine, auricular or ear treatment is used both for the treatment and diagnosis of various diseases. Auricular treatment involves stimulation of specific with the help of very fine needles and a Chinese herb called ‘Vaccaria’.
Auricular treatment helps in healing several mental, emotional and physical health conditions of a patient. It is a unique form of treatment, which works four ways in restoring health in patient – i.e. through prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care.
Tui Na is an ancient Chinese massage therapy that restores the flow of Qi in the body’s meridians, relaxes the muscles and improves blood circulation. Specialized Tui Na treatments are practiced for infants, adults and the elderly and address issues related to orthopedic treatment, sports medication, cosmetology etc.
