Chinese Herbs

Chinese Herbal medicine can be used together with Acupuncture, or by itself. Each formula is designed to treat imbalances in the body. The formula can often act on multiple symptoms.

Cupping

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese and Asian medicine therapy where moxa is burned to warm the acupuncture points. The moxa is composed of dried mugwort, Artemesia vulgaris. The moxa may be burned from a stick, a pot or a moxa cone. The moxa warms the body, increases circulation of blood and lymph. It can be very helpful in facilitating healing, and helping to turn breech babies around.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Questions about Acupuncuture and my Treatments

When the body has areas of blockages and areas of deficient or excess areas of energy, this leads to symptoms of illness. Acupuncture identifies the blockages and moves energy, allowing for the free flow of qi (life force). The free flow of energy encourages the body to promote the inherent natural healing ability.

Very fine needles, (Acupuncture needles are much thinner than hypodermic needles. In fact, more than 25 of my acupuncture needles will fit in a standard doctor’s syringe needle) are inserted in acupuncture points on the Meridians to restore the energetic balance that is within the body. Occasionally moxa, which is ground up, Artemesia argyi or mugwort can be used to nourish and activate some of the points.

Treatments

Acupuncture is completely safe when performed by a fully trained licensed professional. Acupuncture uses sterile, single use disposable stainless steel needles.

Clinical research demonstrates that acupuncture:

  • Stimulates bone re-growth
  • Stimulates the production of cortisol
  • Stimulates the production of dynorphin, endorphin, and enkephalin (pain modulators)
  • Regulates blood pressure
  • Regulates serotonin (spinal cord pain modulator)
  • Increases red and white blood cell count
  • Stimulates the clotting factor

The needles are about as fine as a human hair and are inserted only slightly below the surface of the skin. (more than 25 of my acupuncture needles fit into a standard doctor’s syringe needle). Sensations vary, but patients may experience a tingling or warmth, which quickly dissipates.

Many people find acupuncture extremely relaxing, and even fall asleep during treatment.
