Non-Invasive Diagnosis Utilizing

A combination of techniques used to diagnose a patients’ condition. This may include Trigger Points, Tongue Reading, Pulse Pattern Recognition and Energy Balancing.

Trigger Points

Trigger points are discrete, focal, hyper-irritable spots located in a taut band of skeletal muscle. They produce pain in a referred pattern and often accompany chronic musculoskeletal disorders. Acute trauma or repetitive micro-trauma may lead to the formation of trigger points. Patients may have pain resulting in a decreased range of motion in the affected muscles. These include muscles such as those in the neck, shoulders, and pelvic girdle. Trigger points may also manifest as tension headache, tinnitus, decreased range of motion in the legs, and low back pain.

Tongue Reading

The tongue has many relationships and connections in the body, useful and important during inspection for confirming TCM diagnosis. The tongue has a special relationship with the Heart, in that the Heart opens to the tongue.

Pulse Reading

Pulse reading requires great energetic sensitivity — a capacity to “listen” very deeply. The pulse can be used to gain a deep understanding of the patient on many levels. Even at basic levels, however, the pulse provides immediate and specific information that can help clarify contradictory diagnostic information and symptomology.

Energy Balancing

The life force, or Qi (pronounced chee), is the energy by which life exists. Our Qi is both inherited and produced from our food, the sun, the air and water. It is the vital energy that supports all functions of the body, mind, and spirit. This life energy permeates the entire body in an organized system of channels called the meridians.There are 12 primary meridians which correspond to internal organs. When there is an imbalance of chi energy along these meridians, illness, pain, or dis-ease can result. Acupuncture points along these pathways can be stimulated to open up the channel, remove the blockage, and balance the flow of energy. In this aspect, acupuncture is a true science of ‘energy balancing.”

Holistic Therapy

Instead of treating an illness, holistic medicine looks at an individual’s overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being before recommending treatment. Therapies include: Moxibustion, Cupping, Tui Na, Medical Reflexology, Acupuncture, and many more…

Moxibustion

The burning of moxa is believed to expel cold and warm the meridians, which leads to smoother flow of blood and qi. Treatments range from half an hour to one hour.

Cupping (Ba Guan)

Known as Ba Guan, It helps draw out and eliminate pathogenic factors such as wind, cold, damp and heat. Cupping also moves Qi and Blood and opens the pores of the skin, thus precipitating the removal of pathogens. Treatments generally take 10 to 15 minutes and are followed by a herbal wine remedy and high infrared therapy.

  • Bleeding and moving cupping are offered as needed.
TuiNa

TuiNa is a medical procedure for treating wellness that is often referred to as Chinese Medical Massage. A combination of massage, acupressure and other forms of muscles or nerves to remove blockages that prevent the free flow of qi. Treatments generally take 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Manual Therapy (Zheng Gu)

A Combination of Chinese Osteopathic, and Deep Trigger Point Work. Designed to help release muscles, lengthen tendons, and bring balance to the body system.

Medical Reflexology

Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands and can relieve symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. Treatments generally take 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body—most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. Treatment generally take 45 minutes to one hour.

Scraping (Gua Sha)

Known as Gua Sha, strokes made with a blunt object removes blood stagnation, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes. The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, cough, and other issues. Treatments take about 15 minutes

  • Bian-stone is a type of therapeutic geo-magnetic stone that lines our treatment room beds to aid in heating and balancing the bodies energy
Infrared Lighting

Infrared light therapy has healing benefits much like natural sunlight without any dangerous solar radiation effects. This lighting dilates and expands blood vessels which can increase overall blood circulation, lymph drainage of toxins, energy in cells and promote healing. Treatment is in combination with acupuncture, cupping, electrical stimulation, or moxibustion.

Laser

Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) uses low-level lasers or light-emitting diodes to enhance cellular function. LLLT improves tissue repair, reduces pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied. Treatments take about 4 – 6 minutes and should be applied two or more times a week.

Electric Stimulation

Electrical stimulation uses an electrical current to simulate muscles. By passively activating the muscle the unit can send electrical impulses through the skin to underlying nerves, stimulating the contraction and relaxation of the muscle in a rhythm similar to daily exercise. Can be used for two primary functions; strength training and muscle tone or pain control. Treatments generally last 30 minutes.

Ultra Sound

Ultrasound vibration causes an increase in the extensibility of structures such as ligaments, tendons, scar tissue and fibrous joint capsules while the heat generated helps to reduce pain and muscle spasms. Treatments generally last 10 to 15 minutes

Herbal Medicine

A combination of natural ingredients created by Chinese healers thousands of years ago. These remedies consist of Herbal Teas, Herbal Pills or Herbal Wine (as a topical application).

Herbal Tea

Chinese herbs are boiled for 20 – 40 minutes, the dregs are strained out and the “tea” is taken warm or at room temperature. Boiling times are averaged according to the composition of the formula. Flower and leaf will yield medicine in 5 -20 minutes. Roots take 20 to 40 minutes; Shells and minerals must cook for at least one hour. A few herbs, like mint or tangerine peel, must be quick-boiled for only 1-5

Herbal Pills

Ancient formulas were often prepared as pills made from milled herbs bound with water, honey, ginger juice, or other substances. Therapeutic dosages of handful of pills, taken two or three times a day.

Herbal Wine

This extra concentrated concoction of herbs is designed as a very strong topical analgesic. After fermenting for 4 – 6 months, the mixture is complete. The intense properties of the herbs are escalated and enhanced to help relieve pain, and ease discomfort in areas suffering from acute and chronic conditions.

These breathing techniques are used in tandem with simple routines of specific movements meant to aid in posture, bone strength, lowering blood pressure, relieving anxiety, and increasing overall health and strength in weak areas of the body.
