Acupuncture

Acupuncture is among the oldest forms of medicine in the world today, dating back over 2,000 years (4,000 by some accounts). Healing with acupuncture is based on balancing the body for optimal health by stimulating specific points on the body with acupuncture needles, acupressure, heat, and/or electricity. 

Dry Needling

Dry Needling, also referred to as Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy or Trigger Point Therapy, is the treatment of myofascial trigger points found in the muscles and fascia. Trigger points form as a local contraction within a small number of muscle fibers in a larger muscle or muscle bundle. These points can pull on tendons and ligaments, causing a deep pain within the joint. Trigger Point Therapy/ Dry Needling can release and soften the nodule. 

Orthopedic Acupuncture

Orthopedic and sports acupuncture focuses on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal pain. This approach is highly effective in treating pain in the joints, spinal column, low back/hip/groin, lower extremities, and neck/shoulder/upper extremities. 

ATP Resonance BioTherapy™

ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ uses low-level electrical currents in a non-invasive and painless pain reduction technique. The multiple frequencies available with ATP are effective in decreasing inflammation (swelling), repairing tissue, and reducing pain.

Scalp Acupuncture

Practitioners trained in Zhu Scalp Acupuncture insert needles into the scalp, then gently manipulate the needles and encourage patients to move the affected joint or pain area. The process is consistent in generating results for disorders of the brain, stroke, and spinal cord injuries, and is typically painless. 

Cosmetic Acupuncture

The Cosmetic Acupuncture protocol is a great alternative to fillers and surgical procedures. It gets down to the root of the problem, removing toxins and dead skin cells; resolving underlying factors that contribute to the aging process; and increasing circulation of blood, oxygen, and nutrients. Recovery time is much faster than cosmetic surgery, and no foreign substances are introduced to the body. Many people are converting to the “acupuncture facelift” because it treats the whole face instead of certain locations, is minimally invasive, does not require recovery time, and has significant and lasting results. 

Cupping Therapy

Cupping uses local vacuum pressure with glass cups applied to the skin. Cupping can relieve tension, increase circulation to the area, activate the lymphatic system, and release toxins. It is often used for muscle pain, allergies, common cold and cough, and stress relief.

Electro Acupuncture

The application of electricity to specific locations on the body, typically by attaching electrodes to acupuncture needles to relieve pain, calm or activate nerves, and increase circulation. Electro acupuncture therapy is very successful for treating acute and chronic pain, sports injuries, back pain, and other muscle and joint ailments.

TDP Infrared Heat Therapy

TDP Infrared Heat Therapy uses an FDA-approved heat lamp with a specific wavelength of light (infrared) to apply therapeutic heat to skin, muscles, and joints. Infrared therapy has been clinically proven to relieve pain, improve circulation, reduce inflammation, stimulate healing, and strengthen immunity. It is especially beneficial for chronic pain and arthritis.
