Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Washington, CT
A healthy body is dependent on a balance in the flow of energetic forces known, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, as yin and yang, or Qi energy. By inserting thin, sterile needles into some, or many, of the hundreds of acupuncture points in the body, acupuncture can help heal the body by aligning and balancing these forces out.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Cupping is a method of stimulating the flow of energy, as well as blood flow, in order to relieve soreness or pain in a specific area. This is done by placing heated glass, or bamboo, cups over the affected area in order to create a vacuum seal that breaks up stagnation and promotes the healing process. This process can be done with wet cups, as well as dry cups depending on the needs of our Washington patients.*
Diathermy can help residents of Washington in relieving muscle and joint pain. This form of therapy works by sending high-frequency electric currents into deep tissues in order generate heat within deep tissue. This procedure can help alleviate pain by removing damaged tissue, promoting flexibility, and increasing blood flow in order to accelerate the healing process.*
Moxibustion is a technique in Traditional Chinese Medicine that makes use of an herb called mugwort. By burning mugwort over the affected area, Washington patients may be able to experience relief from the resulting stimulation of blood flow.*
