Low Level LED Light Therapy

We use Low level LED Light Therapy (LLLLT) for both pain and skin conditions. Light therapy works by emitting photons that are absorbed by the mitochondria in cell membranes resulting in increased blood flow and increased collagen and elastin production. Can be used to enhance healing of fractures and wounds, rejuvenating healthy skin, minimizing scar tissue and reducing pain. It is most effective when used in conjunction with acupuncture, nutrition and herbs.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. 

Moxibustion

Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.
