Is acupuncture a placebo? Children and pets respond very well and quickly to acupressure and acupuncture treatment.  They normally feel very relaxed and often do not feel the tiny needles at all.

A session may include:

Acupuncture Needles thin, sterile, stainless steel needles are placed in specific acupuncture points. The needles are at least five times thinner than typical hypodermic needles and insertion is usually painless. You may feel a dull ache or tingling sensation when the needle is stimulated. Acupuncture is generally a very relaxing experience.

Acupressure: for needle-phobic patients, or small children who aren't keen on the idea of needles.  Also, a good therapy to bring home and teach the family.

Cupping a heated glass cup applied to the skin, creating suction as a way of stimulating the flow of energy.  Cupping is effective in treating musculature pain conditions, the onset of a cold, cough, wheezing, stomach pain, and skin conditions to name a few.

Ear Seeds: A form of acupressure.  Tiny ear seeds affixed to the ear to create a constant low-level stimulation of acupoints. These are often the treatment of choice for appetite suppression, smoking cessation, or other forms of addiction.  These are also good for people not keen on the idea of needles. 

Infrared Heat Therapy:  The most resonant form of heat therapy for the human body, the wavelength nature of this heat penetrates much more deeply than other forms of heat. This deep penetration enables extensive stimulation of local circulation. With circulation comes blood and qi (energy), bringing in nutrients and removing toxins.

Tui Na Massage:  Chinese body work

Herbal Recommendations: The use of Chinese herbs are highly effective, cost efficient and have little or no side effects. They are also good for recuperation and building up resistance to diseases.

Dietary Therapy: Dietary therapy uses food to treat and prevent diseases. Food is medicine and medicine is food. What you eat determines your health and the quality of your life.

Magnet Therapy: Often used for pain management.

Electrical Stimulation: Very low level electrical current may be applied to the needle. This is often used for muscle spasms, pain conditions, weight loss, and to enhance point stimulation in general.

Moxabustion: The burning of a medicinal herb close to the skin, to warm the area and improve circulation.

Trans-Dermal Medicial Infusion: Special medicinal herbs from Tibet and China used to increase circulation. See tab for more info.
