Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Bantam, CT
In order to understand the benefits of acupuncture, you must be familiar with Qi. Traditional Chinese Medicine says the key to good health correlates with maintaining a harmonious balance of yin and yang, known as Qi. Some conditions may occur due to an imbalance of these two aspects. Acupuncture is the act of inserting thin sterile needles into points throughout the body where the Qi flows. This treatment option can help regain a positive energy flow and bring your body back to its proper balance.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping is a form of alternative medicine that can create blood flow through the use of suction cups on the patient’s body. Various sized glass cups or bamboo jars are placed over the skin, and can be used almost anywhere, their suction can help break up stagnation and promote blood flow. Patients can choose from wet or dry cupping to help relieve pain.*
Diathermy helps those suffering from muscle and joint conditions. Diathermy is often used for physical therapy or rehabilitation, and uses high-frequency electric currents to create heat stimulation deep within the targeted tissue. Diathermy increases blood flow and makes connective tissues more flexible, ultimately speeding up healing.*
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that consists of burning a mugwort over particular parts of the body. A mugwort is a small spongy herb that can help facilitate healing. Bantam patients can find benefits such as the stimulation of their Qi and maintaining general health from this treatment option.*
Another form of Traditional Chinese Medicine is Tu Nai, which translates to “pinch and pull”. Tu Nai is a combination of therapeutic massage and bodywork therapy that can help harmonize your bodies yin and yang, otherwise known as Qi.
