Meridian Therapy

Meridian Therapy is a series of treatments applied on the meridians in one’s body, including acupuncture, cupping, acupressure, Tui-Na (Chinese massage), massage and moxibustion, etc.

The meridian system is a Traditional Chinese Medicine belief about a path through which the life-energy known as “Chi” flows. The meridian network is typically comprised of 12 principal meridians and 8 extraordinary meridians. Several hundred acupuncture points are considered to be located along with these meridians, which connect points across the anatomy and affect a specific organ or other part of the body.

The congestion of the Chi flows in the meridians results in imbalance of energy in the body, which is usually the cause of many illnesses, such as acute and chronic pain, digestion problems, obesity, menstrual irregularities, and mental disorders. Meridian Therapy helps the body with multiple stimulation to activate the body’s Chi and promote natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and well-being.

Acupuncture

Based on your unique issues and symptoms, your acupuncturist will insert fine, sterile needles at specific points along the meridian pathways in order to make balance of Qi flows in your body.

Electro Acupuncture 

Utilizes the electric stimulation of the needle points to increase therapeutic benefits to treatment.

Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture 

Based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem which reflects the entire body, auricular acupuncture may be used as a primary mode of treatment or in conjunction with acupuncture and/or herbal medicine. It is mostly implemented for treating addictions and losing weight.

Cupping 

In this therapy vacuumed small glass cups will be placed over specific areas on your body to stimulate the flow of blood and Chi within the superficial muscle layers. It is used for sore muscles, tension, neck pain and the common cold, etc.

Moxibustion 

This is a treatment that uses an herb called mugwort. It may be burned on the bandle of a needle, above the skin, on salt or on a slice of ginger. This is used to “warm” acupoints or areas in order to quicken the healing process.

Acupressure/Tui-Na 

Both techniques are based on the concept of Chi, life energy, which flows through “meridians” in the body. In treatment, physical pressure is applied to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians. Pressure may be applied by hand, by elbow, or with various devices. These techniques are employed to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.

Massage

The manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques, can enhance function, aid in the healing process.

Herbal Therapy

Chinese herbs are safer for long term use and suitable for chronic conditions. It also can be used as adjunctive therapies along with standard veterinary medicines. Rather than being prescribed individually, herbs are formulated to adapt to the specific needs of individual patients. Traditional herbal therapy is the use of roots, plants, flowers, and other natural ingredients that are found frequently in our food. These herbal remedies have been used for thousands of years for adjusting body energy and balancing the body for internal conditions.
