Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Thomaston, CT
As echoed throughout Traditional Chinese Medicine, in order to maintain good health, you must have a proper balance of yin and yang, frequently referred to as Qi. When you experience an illness or pain it can be traced back to a disturbance of your Qi. There are hundreds of acupuncture points throughout your body where Qi flows, and by inserting thin, sterile needles into these points we can regulate your energy.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Using glass or bamboo cups of various sizes to create suction over the skin, Cupping can help break up stagnation and increase blood flow throughout the body. Thomaston patients can choose between wet or dry cupping to find relief from pain or soreness.*
Diathermy helps those suffering from muscle and joint pain by using high-frequency electric currents to help stimulate heat inside of targeted tissue. This therapy can help increase blood flow and increase the flexibility of connective tissue, while helping to speed up healing. This treatment is commonly used for physical therapy and rehabilitation.*
Another common form of Traditional Chinese Medicine is moxibustion, a holistic technique that includes a mugwort, which is a spongy small herb. A specialist will burn the mugwort over various parts of the body to help accelerate healing, strengthen blood, and stimulate Qi.*
Our Thomaston patients can find full body relief from aches and pains through Tu Nai, which translates to “pinch and pull”. This form of Traditional Chinese Medicine blends therapeutic massage and bodywork that can help manipulate any disharmony within the body. Tu Nai can help balance your yin and yang, referred to as you Qi, and circulate your body’s energy. We can use Tu Nai as a replacement for acupuncture when the patient isn’t suitable for that treatment.*
