Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine is proven to alleviate the symptoms of numerous health problems while uncovering and addressing their root causes. This system of natural healthcare activates the body’s capacity for self-healing while sustaining balance and avoiding future illness and disease.

  • Boosts immunity, encourages healing and promotes general wellness
  • Alleviates pain and inflammation
  • Improves sleep, energy levels and circulation

I offer the following Traditional Chinese Medicine healing modalities at Balanced Pointe Wellness:

Cupping

Cupping is the use of cups to create a vacuum in a particular area of the body, most commonly on the back. This technique increases circulation, releases the fascia and removes pathogens through the surface of the skin.

Gua-sha & Tui-na therapy

Gua-sha and Tui-na are therapeutic massage techniques which are used to improve circulation and restore the smooth flow of vital energy throughout the body. Both are particularly effective for pain, sciatica and muscle spasms and can provide alleviation of stress-based disorders.

Herbal Medicine Consults

Herbal Medicine Consults are designed to help balance and regulate the organ systems of the body according to the pattern of disease being expressed by the individual.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy which consists of burning dried mugwort (moxa) on particular points of the body to increase or tonify the vital energy in that area. It is very effective at treating disorders such as insomnia and migraines.

Benefits Of TCM

Chinese medicine has historically proven to help alleviate the symptoms of numerous health problems while uncovering and addressing their root cause. It’s a system of health care that activates the body’s natural capacity for self-healing while helping the body sustain balance and avoid future illness and dis-ease. Research suggests that acupuncture stimulates the release of endorphins, which may account for the beneficial effects of acupuncture on clinically depressed patients. In fact, a recent study has proven acupuncture to be as effective as antidepressants, without the risk of potentially crippling side effects.
