Acupuncture: the insertion of thread-thin, single use, stainless steel needles into specific points on the body. Locations of needles are based on individual needs. The points used are generally along channels that send energy to the organs through currents that travel along connective tissue or fascia.
Cupping: After organic, hypoallergenic oil is massaged on the back (optional), glass cups (or plastic for young kids) are placed to help relax the muscles and to help move old stagnant blood and bring in new blood flow. Cups are gently moved along the back like a massage. Pressure is easily adjusted. Cups also help detox the body by bringing any stuck toxins to the surface to be eliminated. Cupping marks are to be expected for about a week or so.
Tuning Forks: These tools send healing vibrations to specific points. They help with healthy cell expression, circulation, pain relief, energy movement, and regulating nerve response. These are mostly used for patients who don't want needles, young children, and teens.
Ear Seeds: These tiny seed stickers are placed on the ears that correspond with nerve pathways leading to different areas of the brain. Children especially love having something to wear home with them as a tool to help calm their nerves and relieve pain.
Pediatric Massage: Many childhood ailments and struggles clear up with frequent massage. Parents are taught techniques that they can use before bed to bond with and help their children heal. It's profound what simple movements can do to harmonize a small body!
What Crystals Are Used for in Chinese Medicine: Crystals have many different functions and were studied and used much like medicinal herbs. To make pediatric treatments as elated and interesting as possible, crystals are used as tapping and brushing tools to activate acupuncture channels and points. Kids love choosing the crystal they identify with and connect to their bodies through the sensations they bring. Specific crystals are also used for specific conditions.
Diet and Lifestyle Consciousness: The vital aspects of what is put into the body, what the body does often, and what environment the body is around is discussed for holistic perspective. Resources are always available to patients such as hand-outs, books from our clinic library, and eating plans. Though Chinese Medicine involves specific diet recommendations, each patient is met wherever they are in their diet/exercise/lifestyle process. Wisdom from different nature-based sources are taken into consideration for patients to explore if they choose to.
What to Expect with Chinese Medicine
Initial Exam and Treatment: These are 90 minutes long and include a Chinese medicine evaluation process involving feeling the pulse, looking at the tongue, and gathering info about health concerns, digestion, sleep, emotions, hormonal cycles/changes, diet, medications and supplements, exercise, living environment, goals, and anything else that the patient feels comfortable discussing. Understanding the whole picture is important to ensure an effective treatment plan. Gently, needles are placed into the body. After time of deep relaxation with the needles in, the patient has the option of having a cupping massage.
Regularity of Treatments: Chinese medicine along with the body's innate healing abilities require frequent training before long-term results can show.
Patients begin a series of treatments by coming in once a week until symptoms consistently are improving.
Our bodies respond to rhythm and acupuncture works best when a pattern is established. The needles are like guides for your nervous system and blood circulation and the goal is to assist your body into being able to naturally produce all that is needed on it's own.
Follow up treatments are 60 minutes long.
Understanding how things change throughout time and getting to know patients better allows the medicine to be more effective and individualized.
