All the Asian Medicine modalities access the body's innate ability to heal itself. Often the body becomes inflamed and overwhelmed before it can complete healing and repair. The outside-in approach helps the body to organize and direct its own healing forces to fix the issue at hand.
Acupuncture uses theories rooted in several thousand years of empirical observation and meticulous note keeping to release fascia and enhance nerve transmission. By activating special points on the body, we communicate with the central nervous system to restore healthy function.
Tui Na is body work similar to massage rooted in the principles of Traditional Asian Medicine. We use it to remove tension and to increase the flow of qi and body fluids.
Gua Sha uses a blunt-edged tool that is rubbed across the skin to help break up stagnant qi and muscular tension.
Cupping breaks up tension and improves flow of qi and body fluids by stretching muscles with the force of suction. We use it to release muscular tension, and to improve circulation in the lungs for cough and colds, often providing immediate relief.
Medical Qi Gong
With medical qi gong, we use the same principles of acupuncture and Traditional Asian Medicine by using qi to create healing without the use of tools or even touch. Read a study detailing how such a subtle treatment produces strong results.
