Acupuncture:  With acupuncture delicate, sterile needles are gently inserted along meridians at specific sites on the body to unblock the obstruction of and re-establish the flow of energy or Qi.  You feel better because your Qi is moving through the meridians with greater ease and harmony in your body.

 

Tui na/Acupressure: Tui Na, a traditional Asian massage technique, treats the meridians and myofascial acupressure points of the body with touch or gentle pressure often in conjunction with acupuncture.  Myofascial release assists to increase the flow of energy through the meridians and is a wonderful and pleasant addition to acupuncture!

 

Cupping Therapy: Cupping is a site-specific technique using small glass cups that when placed on the skin create a suction that gently draws the tissue up and away from underlying structures.  This action increases blood flow to the area, decreases muscle tension and fascial restrictions and overall mobilizes tissue. The result is an increase of range of motion to the area, a decrease in overall pain, an increase in relaxation and enhanced healing.

 

Moxibustion: Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine warming technique that uses indirect heat at both acupuncture and acupressure sites on the body. This heat created by burning Mugwort assists in physically and energetically warming the body. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3789413

 

Qi-Gong: Instructions on specific movements and breathing exercises are given during a session to help increase energy flow in the meridians to enhance healing and well-being.

Chinese Herbal Medicine:  Herbal formulas, taken internally or applied topically, are designed to support healing and are used in conjunction with acupuncture and other treatments, such as Moxibustion and Cupping.  Health Concerns- Chinese Traditional Formulas is one company that Cynthia uses in her practice and stocks her apothecary with many of the herbal formulas she determines are beneficial to her patients.  Health Concerns is the first American company to make traditional Chinese formulas.  Vigilant testing by the company insures purity of the ingredients.

 

Nutrition:  The Eastern approach to medicine considers nutrition a vital and primary component to health and healing.  Specific foods, herbs and spices have connection to and influence on energy flow and balance of the body.  Often food types to eat or avoid are discussed in an acupuncture session.
