Treatments 

Our core therapeutic approaches have a strong base in Classical East Asian Medicine and philosophy, recorded in mainland China within texts from c300 BCE.

 

At each appointment, our treatment plan will address the specific physical or mental health concerns the patient brings to us.  The therapy we use most in treating our patients is acupuncture, supported by moxibustion and cupping. We may also use energy healing, either in the clinic or by providing self-help practices for patients to take home.

We offer a free 15 minutes consultation where you can ask any questions and decide what is best for you.

Acupuncture

The practice of acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific acupoints on the body by a skilled practitioner. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during the insertion and removal of acupuncture needles. The number of needles used in a session depends on the patient's diagnosis. Our treatments use the minimum amount of single-use, sterile needles for effectiveness. After each session, patients may notice improvements in specific ailments, overall health, and an increased sense of wellbeing.

Cupping

Cupping therapy helps relieves aches, pain, inflammation, and other disorders, including arthritis, asthma and colds. Suction is created against the body using a vacuum within plastic or glass cups placed on the skin for several minutes. It also promotes relaxation and may give an effect similar to a deep-tissue massage.

Moxibustion

In moxibustion the practitioner burns mugwort to send heat to specific areas requiring treatment. The heat is applied to the patient either directly or indirectly.  There are two types.
In direct moxibustion, small cones or rice grain pieces of moxa are placed directly on the body and then lit. The practitioner generally removes the moxa before the patient feels warmth.

 

Alternatively, with indirect moxibustion, a lit ball of moxa may be placed on the end of an acupuncture needle or the practitioner directs heat to the body from a lit stick of rolled moxa held in their hand.


We are especially vigilant when using moxa.
