Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Bethlehem, CT
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, a healthy body is defined as one that maintains the balance between the forces of yin and yang. This energy is also known as Qi. Acupuncture helps to heal the body by restoring the balance in the flow of this energy with the use of thin, sterile needles inserted along specific acupuncture points throughout the body.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping is the process of using heated glass or bamboo cups to create a vacuum seal on the skin over an affected area. This procedure helps by stimulating blood flow, and the flow of Qi energy along the meridians of the body. Cupping can be done either wet, or dry, and is generally used to relieve soreness in our Bethlehem patients.*
Diathermy is a form of therapy we offer to Bethlehem patients who are experiencing any sort of deep tissue pain within their muscles or joints. This procedure involves using a high-frequency electrical current in order to stimulate blood flow, destroy damaged tissue, and generate heat within tissue to promote flexibility.*
