Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a therapeutic procedure in which thin filiform (solid) needles are inserted into the skin at specific points throughout the body. Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in various conditions and has even been endorsed by the National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO).

Cupping

Glass or Silicone cups are placed on the skin to create a therapeutic suction effect. This effect is used to relieve pain and localized stagnation. It has been shown to increase blood and lymphatic flow thereby mobilizing Qi, or energy in the body.
Moxibustion

The burning of small amounts of mugwort has been used in conjunction with Acupuncture since it’s inception. Moxibustion, or moxa, is used much like all the effects of TCM. To increase blood flow, regulate and stimulate the flow of Qi and maintain general health. Mugwort can be attached to the handle of a needle, rolled into a tube and burned like incense or applied directly to the body.

Qigong

The word Qigong comes from two Chinese characters. It can be translated literally to energy work. In keeping with the holistic view of TCM we offer this intuitive healing process. The benefits of meditation, Tai Chi and other forms of expanded consciousness have been shown to have far reaching effects on the human body.
