ACUPUNCTURE: Painless & effective

An over 3000 year old healthcare system designed to correct the body systems imbalances that cause ill health,disease and where there is injury. This is done through use of Tiny, disposable, sterile needles placed gently into specific acupuncture points. This same effect can often be achieved through the various other modalities of Acupuncture and Asian BodyWork and are often combined for a relaxing treatment.

Ultrasonic Acupuncture

Ultrasound Gel is placed on specific area of body, and a pulse-wave Ultrasound device is gently placed over acupuncture point areas to improve body circulation, relax, rease joint stiffness, relieve muscular spasms, and increase elasticity of collagen tissue. Can be used anywhere there are acupuncture points that have limited to no hair.

Electro-stimulation Acupuncture

Electro-Stimulation Acupuncture is the application of a pulsating electrical current to the skin by means of stimulating the acupoints.
It may help reduce total treatment time by providing the continued stimulus.
It can produce a stronger stimulation, if desired. Strong stimulation may be needed for difficult cases of neuralgia or paralysis.

It is easier to control the frequency of the stimulus and the amount of stimulus than with hand manipulation of the needles.

Although electro-acupuncture may be used as a component of nearly all acupuncture treatments that require manipulation of the needles, according to the Chinese literature, especially good results are expected from electro-stimulation acupuncture treatment of

*neurological diseases, including

*chronic pain

* spasm and

*paralysis.
