Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Southbury, CT
Good health is the result of Qi, the harmonious balance of yin and yang, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.* An imbalance of these two forces may result in the illnesses you experience.* Your Qi will flow through hundreds of acupuncture points in the body.* If you use acupuncture, tiny sterilized needles will be inserted into these points to help bring your energy flow back into its proper place.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping is one of the other treatments you can receive at Sophia. A part of Oriental medicine, cupping is the process of creating a vacuum seal on a patient’s body with glass cups or bamboo jars. They are used to break up stagnation and bring blood flow to the areas.* Offered in both dry and wet remedies, cupping is meant to help our Southbury patients feel relief from soreness.*
Diathermy, also known as moist heat therapy, can help with muscle and joint conditions.* It is the use of a high-frequency electric current to help stimulate heat generation inside a targeted tissue. It is meant to accelerate healing by increasing blood flow and making connective tissue more flexible.* It has been used in physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Used in Traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion tries to facilitate healing by burning a mugwort, a small spongy herb, onto the patient’s skin. It is meant to maintain general health, stimulate the flow of Qi and strengthen the blood of our Southbury patients.*
Considered a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), this is the use of therapeutic massage and body work to help with disharmony in the body.* Helping treat the body as a whole, Tui Na works to harmonize yin and yang in your body while manipulating the Qi inside of you.* We will often use Tui Na at our Southbury office if treatments like acupuncture are not suitable or necessary for the patient, such as with children.*
