Cupping

Heated glass cups are applied to the skin along meridians of the body, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy, releasing stagnation, detoxifying tissues, increasing circulation.

Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture (Estim) is where a small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. This practice augments acupuncture and is particularly good for pain, function, and neurologic issues.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

TCM encompasses many different practices, including acupuncture, moxibustion (burning an herb above the skin to apply heat to acupuncture points), Chinese herbal medicine, tui na (Chinese therapeutic massage), cupping, guasha, food therapy, and tai chi and qi gong.

TCM Herbal Therapy

Chinese herbal medicine works through the physiologic action of the herbs, and pays special attention to the properties unleashed through combinations of herbs. For example, a Chinese herbalist will choose an herb for a specific effect and complement it with another herb that will increase that beneficial effect.
