Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Cheshire, CT
Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body. It is one of the practices used in traditional Chinese medicine used to balance the body’s systems. Acupuncture involves inserting thin, sterile needles into some, or many of the hundreds of acupuncture points in the body in order to regulate and balance these forces in the body. We will treat your illness by finding the root of your diagnosis. *
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to generate suction. A part of Oriental medicine, cupping is the process of creating a vacuum seal on a Cheshire patient’s body with glass cups or bamboo jars. This option may be done either wet or dry.
Diathermy, also known as moist heat therapy, can help with muscle and joint conditions.* It is the use of a high-frequency electric current to help stimulate heat generation inside a targeted tissue. It is meant to accelerate healing by increasing blood flow and making connective tissue more flexible.* It has been used in physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Used in Traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion tries to facilitate healing by burning a mugwort, a small spongy herb onto the patient’s skin. It is meant to maintain general health, stimulate the flow of Qi and strengthen the blood of our Cheshire patients.*
Our medical specialists are also experienced with performing a form of physical therapy known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as Tui Na. This therapeutic massage acts as a substitute to acupuncture, as it is similar in the way that it stimulates and manipulates the flow of Qi energy. For children, and patients uneasy of needles, this is an excellent alternative.*
