Acupuncture treatments

An acupuncturist, apart from using needles, may use a variety of other treatment techniques.

 

Moxibustion

Moxa is a wonderful warming treatment, which brings relief to “cold” conditions, backache, muscular aches, period pains etc. Moxa is a deeply relaxing treatment. It is held above an area or point to gently warm and increase blood and Qi flow to a problem area. It is especially useful for musculoskeletal and gynaecological conditions. It can aid fertility and healing.

 

 

 

 

 

Auricular Acupuncture

Points on the ear are needled or ear seeds are applied for therapeutic results. Michael uses this treatment as an adjunct to body acupuncture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Electro-Acupuncture

Electro Acupuncture stimulates Acupuncture points using an electronic device similar to a tens machine. Electro Acupuncture can be effective especially for musculo-skeletal conditions and labour induction for child birth.

 

 

 

 

 

Cupping

Cupping has been part of Chinese medicine for over 2,500 years. The therapy uses glass cups that produce a partial vacuum when placed on the skin after the air has been heated. Typical disorders which are treated with cupping include asthma and other breathing problems, abdominal pain, colds, coughs and flu, digestive problems, muscle and joint pain and period pain. In TCM terms cupping is said to move the Qi and Blood.

 

 

 

Acupressure and Massage

Stimulate blood and Qi flow
