Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese method of balancing and building the body’s energy called Qi or Chi (气). Traditional Chinese Medicine considers disease as the result of an imbalance or blockage of Qi’s natural flow in the body. Inserting sterile and uniquely thin needles into specific points helps to regulate the flow of Qi and bring the body back into balance.
Electroacupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a very small electric current is passed between pairs of acupuncture needles. The electric current applies more stimulation to the points than traditional acupuncture and can greatly promote Qi’s circulation. It is often used to treat pain, stress, muscular atrophy and dysfunction of internal organs.
Ear acupuncture uses the points on the ear to treat the health conditions in other parts of the body. The French doctor Paul Nogier found that every part of the body has a corresponding reflex point in the ear. Imbalance in the body will reflect on the relative ear points. Stimulating the ear points with needles or ear seeds helps to improve the body’s condition to recover.
Cupping has been used in China, Egypt and Middle East for thousands of years. It is a therapy that works by applying special cups to the skin to create a vacuum. When performed on certain points and areas, its stimulation helps break up the obstructions and restore the free flow of Qi. It is widely used for treating pain, migraines, arthritis, asthma and some skin diseases.
