Acupuncture is a system of complementary medicine that involves pricking the skin or tissues with pre-sterilized thin needles, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West.
Chinese herbalism is a holistic medical system, meaning that it looks at treating a patient as a whole person, looking at the mental and spiritual health as well as the physical health, of the individual. Illness is seen as a disharmony or imbalance among these aspects of the individual. Chinese herbalism has been practiced for over 4,000 years.
Cupping is therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial muscle layers. It is used for sore muscles, tension, neck pain and the common cold. In this therapy, your acupuncturist will place small glass or plastic "cups" over specific areas on your body. A vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction.
Auricular therapy is applying acupuncture or put the herbal seeds to only the ears of a person. By limiting them to the ears only or combining with normal acupuncture treatment, it can improve in many body conditions.
