Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Ansonia, CT
Good health is the result of Qi, the harmonious balance of Yin and Yang, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.* An imbalance of these two forces may result in the illnesses you experience.* Your Qi will flow through hundreds of acupuncture points in the body. During an acupuncture session, we will insert tiny, sterile needs into these points to help bring your energy flow back into a proper balance.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping is one of the other treatments you can receive at Sophia. A part of Oriental medicine, cupping is the process of creating a vacuum seal on an Ansonia patient’s body with glass cups or bamboo jars. Offered in two ways, both dry and wet, cupping can help our Ansonia patients find a sense of relief from soreness.
This form of therapy works by sending high-frequency electric currents into deep tissues in order to generate heat within deep tissue. Frequently used for physical therapy or rehabilitation, this practice can make connective tissue more flexible and increase blood flow, helping to accelerate the healing.*
In the areas of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy which consists of burning dried mugwort on particular points on the body in order to help facilitate healing. This will help our Ansonia patients strengthen their blood, stimulate the flow of qui, and maintain general health.
At our Brookfield location, Tui Na manipulates the Qi, a vital energy that circulates throughout your body all day long, and works to harmonize Yin and Yang to help treat the body as a whole.* Tu Nai works to harmonize Yin and Yang in your body while manipulating the Qi (pronounced “chee”), a vital energy that circulates your body, helping to treat the body as a whole. This option is great for children or people who have a fear of needles.
