Acupuncture near Eastwood
What is Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) utilises Acupuncture and other techniques in order to activate Meridians and Channels in the body as a means of maintaining healthy function of internal organs. Some of the techniques that may be utilised during an acupuncture and TCM consult include:
- Moxibustion – heating acupuncture needles with dried herb sticks to activate and warm the acupuncture point. Also known as “moxa”.
- Cupping – the application of glass cups to create suction on the skin. This is to relieve stagnation of qi and blood, e.g. in sports injury.
- Herbal medicine – Chinese herbs may be given in the form of teas, pills, and capsules to supplement acupuncture treatment.
- Electro stimulation – provides electrical stimulation to acupuncture needles. It can be used for relief of muscle pain
- Acupressure– can be a great hands on way to consolidate the acupuncture treatment. Acupressure will be incorporated into the treatment if necessary or substituted for those afraid of needles.
