Herbal Formulas

Herbal remedies are effective for many health issues and are tailored specifically to each client's need. A health evaluation by the practitioner is the first step in determining the appropriate formula. The health of the client is assessed by feeling the pulse, observing the color, odor, and form of the tongue and body. In addition to the client's physical complaints, information about life and work habits, family health history, and emotional state are crucial to diagnosis.

Chinese formulas do not only deal with current symptoms; the are designed to treat root causes of problems which stem from imbalance of energies in the organ systems.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy is an old method of Chinese healing to help increase blood circulation and release toxins. It is done by briefly placing a lit alcohol soaked cotton ball inside the cup to create a vacuum by depleting the oxygen. Then the cup is quickly placed on the skin. The suction inside the cup helps bring stagnant blood in congested soft tissue to the surface and allows fresh oxygenated blood to flow into the affected area. This technique quickens the healing process.

Cupping Therapy can be used for injured muscles and lung congestion. A cupping session takes 15 to 20 minutes.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
