Benefits of Authentic Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice performed by placing ultra- thin needles in certain parts of the human body. Today, over 3.5 million people in the United States alone, depends on acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture works by releasing the flow of the vital energy in the human body. This technique works by stimulating certain points along fourteen different pathways. These needles further compel the human body to release a natural painkiller called endorphins, which improves the blood flow and changes in the activities of a human brain.
If you are looking for a completely safe and natural answer to your aches and pains, look no further. Ultimate Light has been shown to greatly enhance the body’s ability to heal itself while reducing pain. It is safe and painless and results are often rapid with no side effects.
The results include diminished pain, reduced inflammation, decreased edema, faster healing times and increased strength of repaired tissues.
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition characterized by damaged nerve endings, most commonly in the feet and lower legs.
Generally, a patient’s symptoms are initially localized to the digits and plantar aspect of the foot but over time can spread proximally to the distal third of the leg.
Medical treatment for years has centered on pain management medicine to cover up the symptoms while the condition progresses. A much more natural, effective, non-invasive approach is the cutting-edge Ultimate Light. This painless approach employs a powerful system that focuses on healing the damaged nerve endings, rather than covering up the symptoms with dangerous drugs which can cause terrible side effects.
Auricular (Ear) Therapy
Auricular acupuncture is most often used for addiction, smoking cessation, and weight loss. It involves the stimulation of the acupoints located on the ear with tiny seeds or pellets. The seeds are no larger than the tip of an unsharpened pencil, do not pierce the skin, and are painless when affixed. The client will leave these seeds in for up to one week and re-stimulate the points by massaging the ear several times each day.
There are over 200 acupoints on each ear that represent the anatomical parts and functions of the human body. These points are arranged on the ear in the image of an inverted fetus. By observing points of tenderness, coloration changes, protrusions or depressions, and skin variations, a trained practitioner can not only treat a wide range of diseases using only the ear but can diagnose them as well. When we stimulate these points, we access the central nervous system through the cranial nerves on the auricle of the ear. This sends a direct message to the brain that results in a rapid healing response.
Chinese Herbal Medicine & Non-needle Alternatives
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete medical science based physiological functionality. This comprehensive system boasts its own diagnostic techniques and treatment modalities which include acupuncture and herbal prescriptions. The cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine is Chinese herbology, which has been continually practiced and documented for over 2,500 years. It is one of the most sophisticated clinical systems in the world in terms of analyzing patterns of ill health and successfully resolving problems. Unlike Western herbology, which promotes single herbs with singular benefits, Chinese herbology uses herbs in concert to treat multiple disorders at the same time.
In addition to acupuncture and herbology, cupping therapy has been part of Chinese medicine for over 2,500 years. we use glass cups in a variety of different sizes.
Cupping is like a very deep tissue massage. The practitioner applies heat in a cup and then applies that cup to the body, most commonly on the back. The heat creates a vacuum effect and draws the skin up into the cup. The result is a movement of fresh blood to the area, the release of toxins, acupuncture point stimulation, increased circulation of blood and lymph, relaxation of tight muscles, and reduced inflammation.
Cupping does leave noticeable marks similar to a bruise or hickey that is sometimes referred to as “cup kisses”. Although they can look alarming, they are not painful and will disappear on their own within 3-7 days.
Most commonly, cupping is used for aches and pains of various types including low back and leg pain, neck and shoulder tension, and fibromyalgia. It also helps open up the chest and benefits the lungs to treat respiratory problems such as cough, bronchitis, asthma, and the like. It can even benefit menstrual problems and digestive problems including stomach aches, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Moxibustion evolved thousands of years ago in early northern China. It is part of traditional Chinese medical practices and came about at the same time as acupuncture.
Moxibustion involves the burning of moxa, an herbal wool made from the leaves of the Mugwort plant, over specific acupoints. The moxa is often formed into a small cone and placed on the tip of a needle or rolled into a cigar-like shape and passed over the skin in wave-like motions. The radiant heat produced by moxibustion penetrates deeply into the body to restore balance, promote circulation, and reduce pain. This form of treatment, usually combined with acupuncture, is indicated for improving general health and treating chronic conditions such as arthritis, digestive disorders, pain, infertility, ulcers, and many other ailments.
Functional medicine is relatively unknown to the public still but has been gaining popularity recently. Functional medicine is quite different than what we have come to know as conventional medicine because it is based on the idea that each individual is different. It allows for us to treat the individual rather than the disease or symptom, like conventional medicine would. It also supports the normal healing mechanisms of the body, naturally, rather than attacking disease directly.
When many hear the term “functional medicine” they don’t often equate it with science, however functional medicine is extremely science based. In fact, research has shown that what happens within us is connected in a complicated network or web of relationships. Functional medicine doesn’t focus on what drug matches with a disease, and instead focuses on why the problem is there in the first place, and what can we do to restore function
Nutrition is a very important element of the complete Traditional Chinese Medicine system. It is one of both healing and disease prevention. Many diseases and symptoms can be treated with dietary changes alone; however, it often takes longer and requires the utmost compliance and dedication on the patient’s behalf. Unfortunately, today’s population has a poor concept of what constitutes a good diet. Our fast-paced lifestyle often gives nutritious eating a low priority. At the same time, controversial dietary regimes and a vast array of fad diets add even more confusion to eating habits. As a result, we see deterioration in the quality of people’s lives in the form of obesity, depression, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and other avoidable conditions of modern life.
Chinese nutrition uniquely differs from modern Western nutrition in that it determines the energies and therapeutic properties of foods instead of analyzing the chemical constituents of them. The advantage of this approach lies in its ability to customize to every individual’s needs. Furthermore, Chinese nutrition takes into consideration such factors as method of preparation, body type, season, and one’s geographical location in determining the appropriate diet.
Ultimate Red Light Therapy
In the 1980’s, NASA conducted multiple studies in space, resulting in the discovery that certain wavelengths of light cause a reaction within various cell structures. These studies show that low level light can have a healing, natural and healthy influence on the human body, based on which wavelength of light is utilized. Further use in aesthetic applications have shown that red light tends to stimulate fibroblast cells which then cause collagen and elastin to form. Infrared light has been shown to stimulate circulation, which can help multiple cell structures resulting in a healing response. Of course, diet and exercise are important to lead a healthy lifestyle, while utilizing various light therapies can be an added benefit, potentially improving both appearance and well-being.
The Ultimate Light delivers multiple times more mid-600nm and near infrared light than the competition. This is due to the number of microchip components per pad and the spacing between the chips. Patients experiencing the Ultimate Light will enjoy a much deeper and complete exposure to these wavelengths of light. The session is painless; there is no heat or discomfort involved and no risk to either the patient or the operator. Completely safe. Totally effective.
