Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in New Haven County, CT
Acupuncture is centered around the idea of establishing harmony within the body. It has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine which is founded on principles of yin and yang. For good health, this is known as Qi (“chee”), or internal physical harmony. Acupuncture, with tiny, sterile needles placed on certain touch points, aims to help the Qi flow throughout your body and bring back proper balance.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Through small glass cups, this cupping technique creates a vacuum on an isolated part of the body. This helps our New Haven County patients have proper circulation again, breaking up congested areas and relaxing strained or tightened muscles. Cupping can be done both dry and wet, and our expert specialists can help you decide what would be best for your specific condition.*
Another approach to healing and physical harmony is heat therapy. Diathermy, also known as moist heat therapy, generates heat in certain pain points. Heat is placed deep in the issue to increase circulation and relax strained muscles. By using this technique, the body can also heal more quickly.*
Moxibustion is a natural solution that combines some features of different techniques. It is medicinally based and uses burned herbs to stimulate the body to heal. Typically using the mugwort herb, our patients will have increased blood flow, which enhances other bodily functions and solidifies the Qi.
A more hands-on and physical approach to healing is Tui Nai. Completely safe and harmless, Tui Nai involves therapeutic massages that relieve stressed parts of the body, including muscles and joints. It aims to increase the Qi and help the flow of energy throughout your entire body. Tui Nai can be used as an alternative to acupuncture and treat similar conditions. This replacement is usually applied for younger New Haven County patients.*
