Jing Luo, also known as the channels and collaterals, refers to the intricate network of pathways through which energy, or qi, and blood flow in the body. Acupuncture, a traditional Chinese medicine technique, aims to regulate Jing Luo and restore the normal flow of qi and blood to balance the functions of the organs. By inserting thin, conductive metal needles into specific points on the body, acupuncture can perceive the natural resonance of electric and magnetic fields to harmonize the energy of the meridians.
In recent years, electrostimulation has emerged as a modern technique to enhance the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment. By applying a gentle electric current to the acupuncture needles, electrostimulation can further stimulate the flow of qi and blood, promoting healing and enhancing overall well-being.
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine
One of the primary methods of treatment in TCM is the use of herbal medicine.
Herbs are carefully selected based on their specific properties and how they interact with each other to restore balance and correct any hypo/hyper-activity in the body's channels and organs. TCM formulae are the result of more than 2000 years of accumulated knowledge and are carefully designed to increase the therapeutic effectiveness of the herbs while minimizing their toxicity and side effects.
At our clinic, we only use GMP certified concentrated granule forms of herbs to provide high-potency, easy-to-take herbal medicine. This ensures that you receive the best possible treatment and optimal health benefits. The use of concentrated granules also means that you do not have to worry about the inconvenience and time-consuming process of preparing and decocting raw herbs.
By incorporating herbal medicine into your treatment plan, you can experience the benefits of TCM in a safe and natural way. The use of TCM formulae can help improve overall health and well-being, and can be especially beneficial in treating chronic conditions, such as pain, digestive issues, and respiratory disorders.
Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves placing cups on the skin to create negative pressure, which helps to increase local circulation and move congestion of qi and blood. This method of therapy can lead to excellent therapeutic results, including pain relief and reduced swelling. At our clinic, we offer a variety of cupping techniques to cater to your specific needs. These techniques include dry cupping, fire cupping, slide cupping, gua sha, and more.
Acupuncture and moxibustion are two inseparable components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Moxibustion, often called "moxa," is the burning of the herb mugwort near specific acupuncture points to stimulate circulation and promote healing. The combination of acupuncture and moxibustion has been used for thousands of years to treat a wide variety of health conditions.
At our clinic, we understand the importance of moxibustion in enhancing the effectiveness of acupuncture treatment. Moxibustion can be particularly useful for individuals who suffer from cold or Yang deficiency, which can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, and cold hands and feet.
The warming nature of moxa makes it a powerful tool for addressing these conditions. By increasing blood flow and stimulating the flow of Qi, moxibustion can help balance the body and alleviate a variety of health issues.
The ear is a highly effective area for reflexology due to its proximity to the brain, making it one of the three key reflexology areas alongside the hands and feet. By stimulating specific points on the ear that correspond to affected areas and organs of the body, we can use techniques such as electrostimulation, magnetic seeds, or acupuncture needles to promote healing on a continuous basis in your daily life. Our skilled practitioners at Holy Family Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine can help you identify the most effective points for your specific health concerns and design a personalized treatment plan that includes ear reflexology to support your overall well-being.
