At Healthy Living Acupuncture, we pair traditional Oriental methods with a modern medical approach.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) oriental style of acupuncture, that uses fine stainless steel needles to restore balance to the body. It is believed that your body’s energy or Qi circulates through channels (meridians) which have branches that associate to bodily organs and functions. TCM sees health as a balance of energy and with imbalance or an interruption of Qi one may be lead to illness and poor health.
Electroacupuncture uses low frequency current which is passed between a pairs of acupuncture needles. It is often used to treat pain associated with old scar tissue and excess stasis of blood(sharp stabbing pain). It is very similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same body points are stimulated during treatment. The current, delivered through the needle, stimulates a larger area than just a needle alone.
Healthy Living Acupuncture offers treatments for both male and female infertility and gynecological disorders. Treatments are individualized. Many women conceive and sustain many successful pregnancies as a result of this treatment.
Orthopedic/ Pain Management
Acupuncture treats pain by recirculating blood flow in your body, getting to root of the problem. Acupuncture helps to re-establish healthy blood flow which reduces inflammation and pain. There are little to no side effects and it’s the best way to treat and eliminate pain.
Cupping treatment is a detoxification method using warm glass cups which create a vacuum when placed on skin. As the air inside the cup cools, it contracts and draws up skin. Cups are left on for 5-15 minutes. The cups may also be moved over the area being treated. This alternative medicine is used on adults and children who suffer from respiratory conditions, sport’s injuries, chronic conditions, traumatic injuries, neuromuscular dysfunctions, myofascial release and lymphatic drainage.
Moxibustion uses moxa (smoldering dried material of the Mugwort plant) to warm regions and acupuncture points to stimulate circulation and improve blood flow. Moxa can be uses indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or it can be applied directly on skin. Moxibustion treatments, used in conjunction with acupuncture treatments, can be very effective in treating back pain, tendinitis, arthritis, muscle stiffness, headaches, menstrual cramps, migraines, digestive disorders, anxiety, irregular periods, and infertility.
