Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Sherman, CT
Customary to Traditional Chinese Medicine, good health is a result of a harmonious balance of yin and yang also known as Qi. Illnesses that you experience can be a result of an imbalance in these two forces. Your Qi will flow through hundreds of acupuncture points in the body. During an acupuncture session, we will insert tiny, sterile needs into these points to help bring your energy flow back into a proper balance.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Part of oriental medicine, Cupping creates a vacuum seal on a patient’s body. Small glass cups or bamboo jars break up stagnation and congestion and bring blood flow to the area. Both dry and wet options can help our Sherman patients finally find relief from their soreness.
Diathermy, moist heat therapy, is used to help with muscle and joint conditions during physical therapy or rehabilitation. It is described as the use of a high-frequency electric current to stimulate heat generation deep inside a targeted tissue. This process increases blood flow to let connective tissue be more flexible which will accelerate healing.*
Part of traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, moxibustion involves burning a small spongy herb called a mugwort. This process will help facilitate healing for our Sherman patients by strengthening their blood, stimulating the flow of qui and maintaining their general health.
Come experience the services of Tui Na at our Sherman office. This is a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that uses therapeutic massage and body work to correct disharmony in the body.
