Acupuncture

Korean Acupuncture

Korean acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that integrates techniques from traditional Chinese acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, and five-element acupuncture. Practitioners make a diagnosis by assessing your “basic constitution,” or body type. In Korean hand acupuncture, a subtype of Korean acupuncture generally, the hand is seen as a microcosm of the body, and practitioners can assess and address conditions anywhere on a patient’s body simply by applying treatment to the hands.

Traditional Chinese Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese acupuncture is the form of acupuncture in which the plurality of practitioners are trained, and it remains the most widely practiced form. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the human body is filled with lines or channels through which the energy of the body flows. These channels function as points of entry into the body, called acupuncture points. Acupuncture is the practice of inserting fine sterile stainless steel needles into these points to remove blockages and imbalances in the body’s energy flow. Removing these blockages allows energy and blood to circulate smoothly throughout the body, stimulating the body to heal itself.

Japanese Acupuncture

Japanese acupuncture is a form of acupuncture in which a practitioner uses touch to diagnose ailments and to find the exact location of the relevant acupuncture point. Once the correct points are located, the practitioner uses a guiding tube to shallowly insert very thin needles. Japanese acupuncture is often accompanied by direct moxibustion, the warming of acupoints by burning moxa, a substance derived from the wormwood plant.

Acupuncture Treatment Techniques:

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient Chinese practice that helps alleviate pain and soreness. A rounded glass cup is placed on the skin, and pressure is created within the cup. This pressure draws the skin and superficial muscle layers outward, easing acupuncture points deeper in the body.

Electroacupuncture

Like regular acupuncture, electro-acupuncture uses needles inserted by hand. The difference is that in electro-acupuncture, these needles are connected to electrodes that provide electrical stimulation. Electro-acupuncture is considered quicker than traditional acupuncture, and has a stronger effect. It also allows the acupuncturist to more finely control the amount of stimulus given to a patient. People with cardiac problems should consult their physicians before using this treatment.

Gua Sha

Gua sha is a traditional healing technique, in which a practitioner applies repeated pressurized strokes over lubricated skin using a round-edged instrument. Widely used in China and Indonesia, Gua sha is Chinese for “to scrape for cholera. The application of the strokes causes small red or purple spots to appear on the skin; these fade after two or three days. The technique is most commonly used to treat fever, heat exhaustion, asthma, muscle and tendon injuries, poor blood circulation, headaches, and other minor problems.

Oriental Nutritional/Dietary Therapy

Nutrition and dietary therapy is an essential pillar of Oriental Medicine. Practitioners of acupuncture have known for thousands of years the direct correlation between what we eat and our health. Even before the development of acupuncture and formal herbal medicine, foods were used by traditional peoples to heal diseases and build immunity. Food can be considered the medicinal herbs that we take three times a day! Being aware of what we eat can help to maintain internal balance and prevent disease on a daily basis. Oriental Diet (Nutritional) Therapy shows how a daily diet in tune with the seasons and the body’s requirements can maintain health and help heal medical problems.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is an analgesic technique in which moxa, a flammable substance derived from the leaves of mugwart plants, is ignited on the skin. The technique is intended to warm regions of the body, as well as stimulating blood and lymph circulation and energy toward acupuncture points. It is often used to increase the production of hemoglobin, white blood cells, and red blood cells.

Heat

Heat therapy restores balance, relieves inflammation, and eases pain. Many acupuncturists apply heat via infrared wave lamps.
