Do you use anything other than needles when practicing Acupuncture?


We also utilize other modalities, or augment treatments using some of the following:

Cupping: the use of glass “cups” in which a suction is created. The cups are applied to the skin and the suction is used to promote and stimulate blood flow.

Mild electro-acupuncture: the stimulation of acupuncture needles with a mild electrical current to stimulate the flow of Qi.

Dietary advice: based on traditional Chinese medical theory.

Tui-na: Chinese traditional massage/acupressure to promote and stimulate blood and Qi flow.

Chinese prepared medicines and tinctures: used as an herbal adjunct in many cases.
