Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in New Canaan, CT
Through the use of thin sterile needles and acupuncture points, many patients find great relief from pain and stress through acupuncture, one of the main components to Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is said that for optimal health you should have a balance of yin and yang, known as Qi, and when something interrupts that energy flow pain and other problems can arise. Through this treatment patients can utilize yet another alternative healing option.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping, offered in either wet or dry, uses suction cups to stimulate your skin and muscles, and can aid in cellular repairs, reduce muscle tension, and have overall health and wellness benefits. This therapy is another form of alternative medicine that we practice here at Sophia, and can help our New Canaan patients reduce stress and muscle aches.*
Also known as moist heat therapy, Diathermy can help reduce aches and pains associated with muscle and joint issues. Using high-frequency electric currents to stimulate heat generation in tissue, this form of therapy can increase blood flow and even help speed up healing throughout the body by destroying unhealthy tissue or clot bleeding vessels.*
Another form of Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture is moxibustion, a form of heat therapy which involves the burning of a dried mugwort (a small spongy herb), over the surface of the skin with the intention of stimulating the flow of Qi. This technique can help our New Canaan patients rid themselves of certain pathogens and maintain their general health.
We offer our New Canaan patients another form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tui Na. This method of manipulative therapy can be used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, and cupping, and is sometimes used as a replacement for acupuncture depending on the patients needs. Tui Na helps harmonize the bodies yin and yang, in hopes to maintain Qi; energy that circulates your body.*
