Modalities

Acupuncture: Acupuncture involves the placing of very thin, threadlike needles in points along the energy pathways of the body. This action unblocks stagnant energy (qi or chi, pronounced chee) and helps the body to rebalance itself. It promotes natural healing and strengthens immunity. Often patients feel an emotional release and a sense of peace. Most patients fall asleep on the treament table.

Low Level Laser Therapy:

Low Level Laser Therapy is the application of red and near infra-red light over injuries or lesions to improve wound / soft tissue healing and give relief for both acute and chronic pain.

LLLT is used to: increase the speed, quality and tensile strength of tissue repair; give pain relief; resolve inflammation; improve function of damaged neurological tissue and often used as an alternative to needles for acupuncture.

The red and near infrared light (600nm-1000nm) commonly used in LLLT can be produced by laser or high intensity LED. The intensity of LLLT lasers and LED’s is not high like a surgical laser. There is no heating effect.

The effects of LLLT are photochemical (like photosynthesis in plants). Red and near infrared light can affect cell membrane permeability and aid the production of ATP thereby providing the cell with more energy which in turn means the cell is in optimum condition to play its part in a natural healing process.

LLLT is popularly used for soft tissue injuries, joint conditions, chronic pain, non-healing wounds and ulcers, post-op pain, quitting smoking and acupuncture.

Cupping: Suction cups are used to move the blood and energy to soothe sore muscle, release tension, and to treat common cold congestion. Cupping can leave round red or purple marks for several days.  It’s used most often on the back, so the marks are hidden.

 

Herbal Medicine: Herbal medicine refers to using a plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Herbalism has a long tradition of use and is becoming more mainstream as improvements in analysis and quality control along with advances in clinical research show the value of herbal medicine in the treating and preventing of disease. Recently, the World Health Organization estimated that 80% of people worldwide rely on herbal medicines for some part of their primary health care. In the last 20 years, public dissatisfaction with the cost of prescription medications, combined with an interest in returning to natural or organic remedies, has led to an increase in herbal medicine use.
