Acupuncture can help treat common cold, allergies and the flu. By balancing your system and reducing the inflammatory response in the body, it becomes less sensitive to environmental allergens. The overall wellness created through regular treatments allows for stronger immunity. A combination of acupuncture, supplements and herbal treatments will help keep you healthy through all of cold and flu season.
Acupuncture has been proven to reduce pain in a number of studies conducted by the National Institute of Health. Acupuncture can facilitate the release of adenosine and ATP metabolites to inhibit the inflammatory response within the body. By increasing blood flow, we can assist the body in flushing out lactic acid build up along with metabolic waste that causes inflammation and pain. Acupuncture can assist with muscle repair post-workout, as well as treating sprains and strains. The sooner you get treatment after an injury, the quicker you will see results. Many people receive acupuncture as a last resort treatment and wish they had tried it sooner.
Acupuncture has been clinically proven to improve blood flow, reduce cramping, reduce stress and balance emotions and regulate hormone levels. Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) are not well understood in Western Medicine. Since Chinese Medicine has dealt with this syndromes for thousands of years and treats each patient individually instead of treating the disease, there is a much higher success rate with Chinese Medicine. Chinese Medicine can also be incredibly helpful in the treatment of pre-menopausal, peri-menopausal and postmenopausal women.
Anti-Aging & Microneedling
Facial Rejuvenation can also be referred to as a non-surgical face lift. Facial acupuncture stimulates collagen production, increases circulation of blood and lymph, improves muscle tone and improves hormonal balance. It is because of this, people who have undergone facial rejuvenation treatments notice smaller wrinkles, increases skin elasticity, tighter pores and clearer skin. Facial Rejuvenation treatments use organic herbal compounds, jade rolling, facial cupping and diet recommendations. Microneedling allows for 3000% greater absorption of herbal compounds and can be done monthly until the desired outcome is reached (between 4-12 treatments). Microneedling treats aging, age spots, hair loss and stretch marks.
