Acupoints, Cupping, and Gua Sha
I have extensive knowledge of and training in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In 2016, I successfully completed the 100-Hour Certification Program in Acupuncture through the University of Western States in conjunction with Dr. Kim Graf of East-West Acupuncture Seminars in Ogden, Utah.
I practice Meridian Therapy which utilizes the knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine to balance energy in the body and address a variety of complaints.
Acupoints...needle free healing!
You may be familiar with acupuncture, but at Live In Wellness we use needle-free Meridian Therapy to achieve the same results. Instead of needles a laser is used to stimulate the same points. Lasers have been found to provide similar effects to needles when applied to the same acupuncture points. The session is pain free and uses a low-level laser that doesn't produce heat. Light from the laser penetrates the skin and affects meridian points. It not only produces the same healing results as traditional acupuncture, it also helps regenerate cells, decrease pain, and reduce inflammation.
Lasers are a fantastic alternative for people seeking the healing benefits of acupuncture without the needles. Laser sessions can also be shorter in duration since lasers can stimulate a point within a few seconds. If you're interested in learning what else this technique can offer, call the office today!
HAVE YOU BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Chronic Low Back Pain
Shoulder - Rotator Cuff problems
If SO...MERIDIAN THERAPY MAY HELP!
The Qi Pulse laser has a wavelength of 635nM and is designed to provide a “pulse” of Qi. This particular wavelength of light is very stimulatory in the body.
CUPPING...NOT JUST FOR OLYMPIC ATHLETES!
Although Michael Phelps may have launched a "cupping comeback," this technique is far from new. Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which special cups are placed on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People use cupping for many purposes
including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and overall well-being.
According to WebMd, cupping dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1550 B.C.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, cupping is a method of creating a vacuum on the patient's skin to dispel stagnation; thereby, improving the flow of chi. Cupping is used to help patients with respiratory issues such as the common cold. Cupping is also used on the back, neck, and shoulder to help with various musculoskeletal complaints.
