Acupuncture is an alternative medicine that means treatment by gentle insertion of minute, disposable needles into specific points in the body. The needles stimulate the body’s ability to repair and overcome illness and injury by correcting imbalance.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
In China, more than 3,200 herbs and 300 mineral and animal extracts are used in more than 400 different formulas. Herbal formulas may contain 4 to 12 different ingredients, to be taken in the form of teas, powders, pills, tinctures, or syrups.
Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of causing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. This draws up the underlying tissues. When the cup is left in place on the skin for a few minutes, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place.
Qi Gong instruction
Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing.
