Acupuncture

This is at the core of most treatments. Acupuncture therapy is a 3,000-year-old healing technique that involves the strategic insertion of thin sterile needles into the body at select acupuncture points. There are hundreds of active points on the human body, which are connected through 20 pathways called channels or meridians. These channels conduct qi or vitality throughout the body—from the surface of the skin to the deeper organ levels. Acupuncture operates on the premise that the body is fundamentally energetic in nature and is constantly in a state of balance or imbalance. By acknowledging this rhythm, acupuncture therapy is a tool that a skilled practitioner uses in an attempt to remove blockages, stagnation, and disturbances in the body that may be stunting the healing process. While acupuncture is most commonly known for its promising benefits with alleviating pain, reducing the symptoms of chemotherapy, and enhancing the effectiveness of fertility treatments, it has in fact been proven to be efficacious for a much wider range of ailments by promoting the natural self-healing processes of the body’s intelligent design.

Some of the Adjunct/Supplemental Modalities used during Integrative Acupuncture sessions:
Aromatherapy

Some treatments may incorporate the use of aromatherapy by way of diffusion or direct application to the skin surface. The phytoaromatic materials are used by stimulating parts of your brain to support psychological and physical well-being. Each essential oil blend is customized to the individual and condition treated. All single oils and custom blends used during your treatment are always Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

Cupping

Cupping therapy is one of the most ancient forms of bodywork and healing. This therapy is often used in conjunction with acupuncture or as a stand-alone therapy. It has been used for thousands of years throughout various cultures to help the body achieve balance. There are various forms of cupping, including hijamah therapy, which is a popular practice within the frame of Unani-Tibb and Prophetic Medicine. Cupping is used as an effective supporting tool for a wide range of issues including sports injuries, digestive issues, stress reduction, pain relief, enhancing immunity and even cosmetic applications such as facial rejuvenation and cellulite reduction. Cupping is a safe, effective and direct method to promote circulation, nourish tissues and release blockages.

Electrical therapies

Some treatments may incorporate the use of electricity to stabilize and amplify the effects of acupuncture. This is commonly used in pain management and cosmetic treatments.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a patient-centered approach to health care that takes into consideration the environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors involved in the long-term care of each individual person assessed. This incorporates lifestyle recommendations and occasional targeted supplement protocols to help you achieve your wellness goals more efficiently.

The spongy plant fibers are heated and applied along areas of the body where healing is hindered due to cold stagnation.
