One of the biggest advantages to trying alternative practices such as the ones below is that these methods don’t pose the risk for unwanted side effects like pharmacological drugs or surgery do.
Acupuncture is the practice of inserting sterile, hair-fine needles at specific points in the body to strengthen, stimulate and relieve symptoms of disease. Acupuncture helps facilitate the body's own healing abilities by increasing blood flow, decreasing inflammation via the insertion of needles into the muscle thus sending a message to the brain to release endogenous neurotransmitters.
The basic idea behind cupping therapy is to place a cup on the patient’s skin to create a vacuum, so the blood is drawn to the surface of the skin in specific parts of the body that need healing. Cupping therapy helps reduce pain, promotes relaxation, boosts skin health, helps treat respiratory issues and colds, and improves digestion.
Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences. Because of potential risks of burning moxibustion on skin, we use electronic moxibustion devices that creates the same effect of moxibustion but in a much more safer way.
Electroneedle therapy is a treatment similar to dry needling or acupuncture where fine needles are placed in the affected tissue and are connected via cables to a small electro-stimulation unit. Electroneedle therapy improves the circulation of natural analgesics (endorphines and opioids) in order to reduce pain. Blood circulation is also stimulated, promoting the delivery of nutrients to tissue, speeding up the healing processes.
Chu Na Stretching
Chu means to puch and Na means to pull. The patient is laid on the treatment bed and the doctor stretches the patient's displaced bones and joints. By realigning the bones and joints, and correcting the sipnal curve by chu na stretching, patients suffering from spinal diseases can see much benefit from Chu Na. Not only does it relieve pain but also creates better blood circulation and stress relief.
Taping Method is a therapeutic taping technique not only offering you the support you are looking for, but also rehabilitating the affected condition as well. By targeting different receptors within the somatosensory system, the tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin. This lifting affect forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space and allowing for a decrease in inflammation of the affected areas.
