Acupuncture Techniques

Micro stimulation - stimulates acupuncture points through pinpointed massage of the skin above the acupuncture point using the "Yuan Tchen", a blunt-tipped instrument. This simple, but powerful Chinese acupuncture technique originated in Vietnam about 1,000 years ago.

Acupressure - is an ancient healing art that uses the fingers to stimulate acupuncture points. This stimulation releases muscular tension, promotes circulation of blood, stimulates the body's life force and aids the body's natural self-curative abilities.

Gentle dry needling - involves needling altered or dysfunctional tissues in order to improve or restore function. This may include needling of Myofascial trigger points, Periosteum or other soft tissue.

Ear acupuncture - also known as auricular therapy, has a long history in China. Helps regulate the body's internal organs, structures and functions.

Moxibustion - is a form of heat treatment used extensively in Chinese medicine. Indirect heat is applied to specific acupuncture points which warms the body and stimulates energy and blood flow. One of the causes of pain is stagnation due to cold. Warming the body by applying moxa eliminates the stagnation and therefore the pain.
