Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Newtown, CT
Qi is the harmonious balance between yin and yang, and good health is the result of this according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.* Illnesses that you experience may be a result of the imbalance in these two forces.* We can bring your energy flow back into place by inserting tiny, sterilized needles inside of hundreds of acupuncture points in your body, where your Qi flows.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping is the process of creating a vacuum seal on a patient’s body. A part of oriental medicine, small glass cups or bamboo jars will be used to break up stagnation and congestion and bring blood flow to the affected area to help our Newtown patients find a sense of relief from soreness.* Offered in two ways, both dry and wet.
Diathermy can help with muscle and joint conditions.* Frequently called moist heat therapy, diathermy stimulates heat generation deep inside a targeted tissue by using a high-frequency electric current. Used in physical therapy in rehabilitation, this practice can increase blood flow and make connective tissue more flexible, helping to accelerate healing.*

This Traditional Chinese medicine technique is the use of therapeutic massage and body work to help with disharmony in the body.* It works to manipulate the Qi inside of you while harmonizing your yin and yang, to help treat the body as a whole.* Many times, we will use Tui Na for children or other patients who may otherwise not need or are not suitable for acupuncture.
