Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Ridgefield, CT
Acupuncture is a main component to Traditional Chinese Medicine and can help regain energy balance throughout your body following a disturbance such as an illness or injury. Using thin sterile needles we will pinpoint the proper acupuncture points and begin to balance out your yin and yang, also known as Qi. Acupuncture is an exceptional method to maintain your overall health, decrease pain, and even help reduce stress.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Another avenue of Chinese Medicine is cupping, which is the process of using various sized glass jars to create suction on a targeted area of the body. This stimulation will help break up congestion in the body, promoting blood circulation which can result in muscle tension relief and cell repair. Our Ridgefield patients find this method extremely helpful when dealing with pain or stress.*
Using high-frequency electric currents to stimulate heat deep inside tissue, Diathermy (also known as moist heat therapy) can help patients increase their blood flow, relieve pain, destroy unhealthy tissue, or help to clot bleeding vessels. Diathermy can help accelerate healing in some patients with joint and muscle conditions.*
By burning a dried mugwort, a spongy herb, over particular parts of the body, Moxibustion can help regain the flow of Qi, strengthen blood, and maintain overall health. It has been used for hundreds of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acts as a counter-irritant to certain pathogens.
Another method to maintain a balanced Qi is through Tui Na, a form of manipulative therapy used throughout Traditional Chinese Medicine practices. Qi is considered the vital energy that flows throughout your body, and if an interference throws that energy off balance the benefits of Tui Na can help get your body harmonized again. Tui Na can be used instead of acupuncture for some patients, often times children.*
