Acupuncture is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive treatment method to help millions of people become, and stay well.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
Cupping has been an essential part of numerous medical systems for centuries. Cupping promotes peripheral (close to the skin) blood circulation through the release of nitric oxide and improves immunity by increasing interferon and tumor necrotizing factor. Additionally, cupping promotes local anaerobic metabolism by releasing nitric oxide, increases pain thresholds, decreases uric acid and reduces inflammation through the activation of Heme oxygenase-1 an anti-inflammatory gene. Cupping also eliminates toxins through its positive affect on the lymphatic system. Despite multiple theories, more quality research is needed to confirm the effects of cupping as well as the mechanisms by which they may or may not support healing. It is a safe and effective method of health and healing.
Herbal medicine is a proven and effective method for strengthening, purging or regulating the body. A custom herbal formulary is prescribed and prepared based on your diagnosis during your initial consultation and is modified as treatment continues and symptoms change. Licensed Acupuncturists are required to maintain extensive knowledge of the interaction of herbs and western pharmaceutical medication.
