Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine
Acupuncture, considered one of the eight branches of traditional Asian medicine, is the use of slender, pre-sterilized, single-use needles to enhance health, relieve pain, and heal disease. Most people find an acupuncture treatment to be very relaxing.
Suggestions for home care are often given in order to support and enhance the acupuncture treatment.
Chinese herbal medicine
Chinese herbal formulas may occasionally be prescribed to supplement the effects of acupuncture treatment.
Ear acupuncture, cupping, gwa sha, and electro-acupuncture
