Traditional Five Element Acupuncture is used to balance the 12 energy lines in the body, this is achieved by testing each end point of the energy lines (both left and right) and using a command point either up to the elbow or up to the knee to encourage an even flow on both sides of the body - balancing yin and yang - this is a full body treatment which is carried out at each treatment before treating the problem area whether it be physical or emotional. I have found this to be a very effective way to provide relief of many ailments, many comment on how suprised they are at their bodies quick response to relief of their ailment.
Cupping Therapy is in the form of static or sliding specially designed glass cups depending on the problem, sliding cupping is very similar to a very deep tissue massage of the back and shoulders but instead of applying pressure it produces a lifting and dropping action of the tissues as the cup slides along the muscles. Many patients have found this very effective to reduce aches and pains of the back and shoulder area. One who is waiting for a hip replacement has found alot of pain relief through a regular treatment every 3 weeks, all patients comment on the warming sensation it creates and the relaxation it provides and many return on a regular basis every 4 weeks.
