Auricular therapy involves the use of seeds or needles placed in the ear. The ear is the meeting point of all the meridians in our body, allowing us to not only further our diagnosis through examination of the ear, but also use the ear in conjunction with acupuncture or herbal medicine in the treatment of various symptoms and imbalances. Auricular acupuncture has been widely used at this clinic to treat numerous addictions from habitual (smoking) to substance(drugs) and even food cravings.
Bleeding/ Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy can help ease the tension in different parts of our body through the use of glass cups and a suction mechanism. The act of blood letting can aid in reducing inflammation and pain. When combined together, blood clots and stasis can be removed from the body and can bring almost immediate relief to chronic and traumatic injuries.
Cosmetic Acupuncture works in the same theory as acupuncture but using smaller and finer needles. The use of the needles around the face facilitate the movement of good qi and blood to the area which aids the body in naturally reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Cosmetic acupuncture can also help reduce crow’s feet and bring vitality back to the skin. The deeper the wrinkles, the more sessions are needed, however many see improvements after just one session.
