Acupuncture is part of Oriental Medicine (also known as Traditional Chinese Medicine, TCM) and consists of the stimulation of points located along energetic meridians with extremely thin, sterilized and disposable needles that are FDA Approved. The expert stimulation of these medicinal points according to your particular body needs is used to regulate the bio-circuits of energy as well as to bring balance, relieve poor circulation and stimulate the body's own healing ability. Acupuncture produces healing by normalizing the nervous system and local blood flow, thereby increasing the presence of oxygen, nutrition and stem cells in the relevant areas.
Herbal Therapy is a very important part of Oriental Medicine. The medicinal gifts from nature, when taken in their purest form and prescribed according to correct diagnosis, can effectively support the acupuncture treatments and ensure a faster response. Herbal and other natural medicines will be prescribed according to each patient’s needs. Follow-up consultations are essential to determine the dosage and patient response.
The use of herbal remedies has become more popular since quality control and advanced clinical and scientific research have shown the value and efficacy of natural medicinal substances for the treatment of disease. These days people want to treat and prevent naturally with the fewest and mildest possible side effects and this has led logically to an increased interest in treatment with natural medicine substances, such as plants, minerals, etc. Many oriental medicine herbal formulas were invented hundreds of years ago and have a history of safe and effective use when prescribed by a duly qualified practitioner.
We may also prescribe homeopathic and nutritional supplements to support a more rapid effect the acupuncture treatments.
Each acupuncture treatment is unique and the combination of points varies according to the patients' progress. The frequency of treatments also depends on each condition.
