NON-NEEDLE THERAPIES

CUPPING

Cupping therapy is a method of using suction to pull or move stagnant fluids and blood out of an injured area. The result is a reddened area that subsides following treatment. Some bruising can occur. Cups are usually left in place for 5 to 15 minutes. In this simple way, cupping reduces pain and relaxes tight painful muscles. Cups are also regularly placed over the lungs to stimulate lung qi and improve lung function.  In this way, it works to combat the early symptoms of a cold, stimulate expectoration of phlegm later in a cold and reduce the frequency of asthma attacks. Cupping treatment is designed to promote and restore the balance of energy.



GUA SHA

Gua Sha is a healing technique used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Gua means to rub or friction. Sha is the term used to describe congestion of blood at the surface of the body. Gua Sha promotes normal circulation to the muscles, tissues, and organs directly beneath the surface treated. The patient experiences immediate changes in stiffness and pain and mobility.

MOXA

Moxibustion (Moxa)  is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, Artemesia Vulgaris, above the skin. Moxibustion has been used for thousands of years to strengthen the immune system and stimulate blood flow to initiate healing and maintain general health. The heat easily penetrates joints providing relief for arthritis and joint related pain.

CELLUMA LIGHT THERAPY

 Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.  

GENIUS BIOFEEDBACK

The Genius is one of the most innovative quantum biofeedback products in the world!  Biofeedback is a powerful tool that we need today in a world where people can't get the answers that they want from doctors or from the medical community. Yet, through the touch of a few buttons, you can can get answers to questions you are desperately wanting to know through looking at different aspects of your energetic field. You can energetically look at hormones, minerals, neurotransmitters, brain health and more. These are only energetic readings and they should not be taken as a physical diagnosis. Yet it has been our experience that these energetic readings are closely aligned to the physical experience many of our users. They have reported over the years that these readings are often spot on for them given what they are experiencing.
