Description of Acupuncture and Modalities:

Acupuncture is the method of stimulating specific acupoints to manipulate the “qi” or energy of a patient. By needling these points for specific patient diagnosis, the acupuncturist is able to change the balance of energy in the body to effect various symptoms in the patient. Needles are very thin, about the size of a human hair, and generally are not felt upon insertion. The points a practitioner uses are chosen based on your Chinese medical diagnosis to benefit imbalances of qi, yin, and yang in the body and alleviate symptoms such as:

  • pain (acute and chronic)

– digestive disorders

  • sleep disorders

-stress and anxiety

-PMS symptoms

…and much more!

 

Other modalities may be used in your treatment. Moxabustion is the application of heat by burning Artemisia or Mugwort. This heat is applied indirectly to the body (on top of needles, held above the skin) and directly to the skin to warm the channels and move qi and blood. Fire cupping is the method of using glass cups with heat to create suction and attach cups to the body. This method is typically used to move qi and blood, and reduce stagnation in the channels. Guasha is a “scraping” method used to invigorate the channel by using a tool made of glass, bone or acrylic directly on the skin. Electro-acupuncture uses small electric currents on acupuncture needles(much like a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation or T.E.N.S. unit) to provide extra stimulation of acupoints. It is extremely beneficial for treating pain. Auriculotherapy is simply ear acupuncture. The ear is seen as a microsystem of the whole body and can therefore be used to treat symptoms in the whole patient. Tuina is an ancient Chinese massage technique used to supplement acupuncture treatment with gentle manipulation of the channels on the body.

Chinese herbs are prescribed in three forms. Raw or bulk Chinese herbs are the prepared herb in its true form. Bulk herbs are generally prepared at home by decocting (simmering) herbs in water to make a tea. Full instructions for any at home preparation will be provided as well as the herbs needed to make a formula. This is generally the cheapest way to purchase Chinese herbs and is traditionally the most effective. Granular herbs are a herb powder made of concentrated single Chinese herbs. This method of herbal prescription is generally taken orally by mixing the powder into warm water and drinking the mixture. All instructions for dosages will be provided. Both granular herbs and bulk herbs allow the practitioner to modify each formula to benefit each patient specifically. They are also both generally the most price friendly option. Finally, Chinese herbal patents are the pre-formulated bottles of tablets, capsules, or tinctures that contain herbal formulas. Patents are a convenient option for patients who want the simplest possible method of taking Chinese herbs. These patents are generally a low dose of each formula and can be used for sensitive patients as well. Although they are convenient they are not modifiable per each patient’s specific needs, and therefore, do not allow the practitioner to create a specific formula for the patient. All prices for Chinese herbal prescriptions vary per patient Chinese diagnosis. Make an appointment today for an herbal consult!
