Morning Light Acupuncture offers a range of traditional Chinese Medical modalities from acupuncture to cupping to guasha as indicated by the patient’s condition. While many patients will experience a feeling of relaxation and well being after a single treatment the best result, like any physical training, requires multiple visits. For many acute muscular-skeletal conditions, especially long-term are optimally treated twice a week. Acupuncture treatment packages are available for convenience and economy.
Cupping is a traditional and widespread healing modality used from Asia to Europe to theMiddle East. Glass or plastic cups are place on the skin creating suction that relieves pain and inflammation by increasing blood flow. Cupping received a lot of attention during the 2016 Olympics when the U.S. Swim team sported the round cupping marks from pre-event treatments. We use cupping as both a stand-alone as well as an adjunctive treatment.
Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the whole person; we think what you eat is very important! Foods have different qualities such as dampness (sugar and dairy) heat (meat) and cold (oranges) that can affect individuals in different ways. Some foods are considered to be especially helpful for certain conditions, e.g. chicken soup with ginger for a cold. We can provide dietary and nutritional guidance to enable our patients to experience optimal effects from their treatment.
As a board certified herbalist I can prescribe Chinese herbal formulas to my patients as indicated by the pattern or condition. I only use companies that provide vigorous oversight in the sourcing and manufacture of their herbal products. I will also recommend topical balms and liniments as indicated.
