Once diagnosed, you will have a choice of one of the following TCM treatments:
Acupuncture is a healing system, where fine needles are inserted into the key blood channels to stimulate the free flow of energy (Qi) movement through your body.
Heated cups are placed on targeted parts of the body. Pressure is then applied to create suction on those areas. In the process, toxins are released and blood flow is increased.
The TCM doctor will use moxa herbs in powder form which will be applied to a particular acupuncture point. The herbs diffuse into the body, working to smoothen the circulation of vital energy, strengthen the organs, regulate Qi and balance the Yin & Yang within the body.
