Acupuncture: A technique in which very fine, sterile, single-use needles are inserted into acupoints on the patient's body. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), the acupoints are functional spots along energetic pathways in the body called channels (or meridians), which cover the surface of the body and connect to the neuromusculoskeletal system, sensory organs, and internal organs. The intended effect of acupuncture is to activate the flow of energy and blood in the channels, thereby activating the body's own defense, repair and regulation mechanisms.
Electrostimulation: A gentle electrical current may be passed between acupoints using electrodes attached to acupuncture needles in order to increase the effectiveness of activating the channels.
Medical Tuina Massage: A form of bodywork which uses the acupoints and channels and employs joint and soft tissue techniques such as pressing, kneading, rubbing, pulling, stretching, rotating, and traction. It is sometimes compared to shiatsu or deep-tissue massage.
Cupping: A type of bodywork by which open glass spheres are affixed to the body by heating the air within the cup and then placing the cup against the skin. After placing the cup on the skin, the air inside cools and creates lower pressure and suction to the skin.
Dietary Therapy: Like herbal medicine, recommendations are based on the flavors and thermal effects of ingredients in relation to the patient's constitution and imbalances. In general, a diet that incorporates a balanced variety of flavors and thermal effects will lead to health.
Herbal Medicine: Herbs may be administered per patient in a tailored fashion, most commonly in a pill or capsule format. Herbal formulas, as well as dietary therapy, are based on the flavors and thermal effects of the ingredients and on the patient's constitution and imbalances.
Tai Chi and Qi Gong: Activities that include physical routines, stretching postures and self-massage to achieve and maintain flexibility, strength, and balance, in addition to breathing and meditation exercises. The overall effect is to optimize the flow of energy throughout the body.
PLEASE NOTE: Acupuncture sessions last about one hour, with needle retention lasting about thirty minutes. Patients should plan on eating within two to four hours beforehand and on wearing comfortable clothing that can be adjusted to expose the arms and legs to above the elbows and knees.
