Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness for over 23 centuries. It is based on the Taoist philosophy of balancing energy meridians within the body, thus allowing the body to heal itself.

In an oriental medicine assessment, your practitioner will diagnose your condition with a thorough examination which will include an interpretation through medical history, pulse, and tongue diagnosis.

Fine needles are painlessly inserted at key points corresponding to body organs to relieve pain and cure disease and dysfunction.

Your practitioner may also use the following adjunct techniques within your session: electrical or laser stimulation (electro acupuncture), moxabustion (heat), gua sha (scraping), cupping (suction), auricular therapy (ear acupuncture), or massage at key points (acupressure).
