Tui Na

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat internal diseases.

Cupping

Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Flower Essence Therapy

Other Therapies - Natural Solutions Acupuncture & Bodywork in Waterloo, NY

Flower essences are a form of herbal medicine used in flower therapy. They're believed to contain the vibrational energy of flowers, which can improve negative thoughts and emotions. Some studies say flower essences can ease anxiety and pain.

Used during an Acupuncture treatment along with the needles, the flower essences work with the meridians of the body to move emotions that are stagnating within.

Flower essences can also be used daily as a tincture. Speak with a practitioner to help you choose the best flower essences to work with.
