Non-Needle Therapy Techniques

Cupping, Gua Sha, Moxibustion, Auricular (Ear), Laser (cold laser), TDP Far Infrared Heat, Microcurrent

Cupping

Cupping is commonly used for back, neck, shoulder, and other musculoskeletal conditions. It is also used to treat respiratory problems such as the common cold, coughs, bronchitis, asthma and other lung conditions.

Cupping is similar to deep tissue massage. Heat is applied to a glass cup that creates a vacuum, drawing the skin into the cup. The result is the release of toxins, increased circulation of blood and lymph, relaxation of tight muscles, and reduced inflammation.

Cupping does leave marks, similar to bruising. The marks are not painful and typically disappear within 3-7 days.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is most commonly used to reduce fever, cough, bronchitis, asthma, emphysema and to treat muscle and tendon injuries, poor circulation, fibromyalgia, stiffness, pain, immobility, and other disorders.

It involves repeated, pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edged object; typically a ceramic Chinese soup spoon, honed animal bone, or jade stone. The smooth edge is moved along muscles or the pathway of acupuncture meridians. The resulting marks, which are not painful, usually take 2-5 days or longer to fade. The color of these marks vary according to the severity of the disorder, appearing from a dark red/blue to a light pink, but are most often a shade of red.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion involves burning moxa wool, made from leaves of the Mugwort plant, over specific acupoints. The heat produced penetrates deeply into the body to restore balance, promote circulation, and reduce pain. This can be very effective for many conditions including:  back pain, muscle stiffness, headaches, migraines, tendonitis, arthritis, digestive disorders, anxiety, and female health problems such as menstrual cramps, irregular periods, and infertility.

Auricular (Ear) Therapy

Auricular therapy is most often used for addictions, smoking cessation, weight loss, and pain control. It involves the stimulation of acupoints located on the ear with tiny seeds from the Vaccaria plant. Pellets or tiny magnets also can be used. Seeds or pellets do not pierce the skin; they are held in place with a small piece of adhesive tape. The seeds remain in place for 3-5 days. Points are stimulated by massaging the ear several times each day. When stimulated, the points access the central nervous system through the cranial nerves on the auricle of the ear. This sends a direct message to the brain that results in a healing response.

There are over 200 acupoints on each ear that represent the anatomical parts and functions of the human body.

Laser Therapy

Laser acupuncture uses low-level energy laser beams instead of traditional needles to influence the flow of current at acupuncture points. Class IIIa lasers only work with wavelengths in the red-beam range (600–700 nm). This is ideal for painful conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive motion injuries, soft tissue injuries, acute or chronic pain, inflammation, Fibromyalgia, addiction treatments, smoking cessation, weight control and more.

Cold laser is especially useful for children and people who fear acupuncture needles.

TDP Therapy

TDP Mineral Lamps help relieve muscle and joint stiffness, inflammation, muscle spasms, sprains and strains.

They are a medical device under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration - Class II. They are far-infrared heating devices which feature a round plate coated with a proprietary mineral formation consisting of 33 essential elements. When heated to a certain temperature, they emit the far Infrared mineral energy (FIM), resulting in many therapeutic benefits. The emitted FIM energy penetrates through tissues and stimulates micro circulation, delivering higher levels of oxygen and nutrients to the injured cells, while eliminating toxins and cellular waste.

Microcurrent / Electro Acupuncture

Microcurrent therapy is the application of gentle electric current, measured in millionths of an amp, to the body. It applies the same Acupuncture principles without using needles or piercing the skin.

Microcurrents are delivered using hand-held wands placed at acupuncture points or pads that surround a larger area. These devices generate frequencies similar to those naturally produced by your own cells. Conditions usually treated with Microcurrent are pain relief, inflammation, spasms, and degenerative diseases just to name a few. Microcurrent also promotes weight loss and detoxification along with nutritional support.

Inform the Acupuncturist if you:  have a cardiac pacemaker (especially the demand type), defibrillators, or other electronic/metallic implants, are pregnant, have epilepsy or cancerous lesions.
