Acupuncture originated in ancient China many centuries ago. Along with Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture is presently one of the world's main disciplines of primary medical care; serving more than one fourth of the world's population. It is a very precise method of balancing, regulating and strengthening the life force of the human body; called Qi (pronounced chee).
Chiropractic is the largest and most popular drug-free healthcare system in the world! Chiropractors work with your spine and the nerves around it. Why? Because your spinal system is what keeps your entire body functioning properly. Chiropractors spend many years of highly specialized training to learn to locate misplaced vertebrae in your spine that are interfering with the nerves. Once they locate them, they use specialized techniques to realign your vertebrae which in turn releases pressure on your nerves and body structure. This procedure is called a “chiropractic spinal adjustment.” The Chiropractic adjustment has been proven to increase motion, increase circulation, reduce swelling and pain, and remove nervous irritation. Once this nervous irritation is removed, your body is able to do what it is designed to do - heal itself.
Massage therapy improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. It relieves muscle tension and pain, increases flexibility and mobility, and helps clear lactic acid and other waste, which reduces pain and stiffness in muscles and joints.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Herbal medicine is by itself a powerful method of healing. Western drugs are usually used to control symptoms but do not alter the disease process. For example: antibiotics kill bacteria but do not improve a person's resistance to infection; diuretics drain excess fluid from the body but do not improve the kidney function.
Cold Laser Therapy
Low level laser therapy is the application of laser light over injuries, lesions, burns, pain, inflammation and other disorders to stimulate healing within those tissues and cells. It is a very effective method of treating sprains, strains. tendonits, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fascitis and many other chronic and acute conditions.
