Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Westport, CT
Acupuncture has proven health benefits, including reducing stress and pain. It is a common form of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and can help balance our Westport patients yin and yang, also known as Qi. Throughout your body are hundreds of acupuncture points where specialists can insert a thin, sterile needle to help harmonize your bodies energy flow.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
Another form of holistic medicine is Cupping, which is the act of placing glass or bamboo cups over the body to create suction, which helps break up congestion and promote blood flow throughout the body. We offer this therapy in wet or dry, helping Westport patients find some relief from sore muscles.*
Diathermy, otherwise known as moist heat therapy, helps those who suffer from muscle and joint pain. Using high-frequency electric currents, this treatment form targets tissue and stimulates heat generation deep within. It has been proven to help increase blood flow, accelerate healing, and help connective tissue gain flexibility.*
Westport patients who are looking to maintain their overall health can utilize another form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, moxibustion. This therapy involves the burning of a mugwort, a spongy herb, over the body in order to strengthen blood, promote healing, and balance out Qi.*
Tu Nai is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that can create full body relief from aches and pain. It combines therapeutic massage with bodywork, focusing on stimulating your Qi, the balance of yin and yang throughout your body. When your Qi is imbalanced it can cause pain and illnesses.
