doTerra Essential Oils & Aromatherapy
Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremonies. At our center, we use the oils for aromatherapy and apply topically as an adjunct therapy to acupuncture treatment.
Pulsating, low-level electrical current is added to the acupuncture needles to provide stronger stimulation in areas that require faster healing such as your muscles, tissues, and joints. This method is very effective to treat post-stroke patients to reactivate muscle fibers.
Moxibustion is composed of an herb called mugwort to promote blood circulation and warm acupuncture points to accelerate the healing process. Indirect moxibustion is used during an acupuncture treatment to improve blood circulation and deliver warmth locally to help improve recovery of injured tendons, ligaments, and muscles.
Cupping is a technique in which glass cups are heated from the inside with fire to create a vacuum and then placed on the afflicted area of the body. The cup's suction pulls at the skin and draws out toxins from the body. It is used for sore muscles, tension, neck pain and common cold.
Chinese herbal medicine will only be used in conjunction with acupuncture treatments. Patients will be prescribed high quality herbal formulas made and packaged by a reputable American herbal company. Granules or powders will be used for efficacy and your convenience.

What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Its effectiveness has been observed and documented not for years, but for centuries. Research has shown that acupuncture affects regulation of the body's nervous systems, encouraging the release of endorphins and stimulating immune cell function. By doing so, it helps restore the natural energy flow in the body to treat and prevent ailments.
How Is Acupuncture Applied?
During a typical session, an acupuncturist will place fine, sterile needles at specific points along the body's meridian pathways. It is painless and completely safe. The applications eliminate obstructions and balance your energy flow, or Qi (pron. Chee). Once this is done, Qi can freely circulate, extinguishing the pain, or issue, and allowing your body to use its ability to heal itself. Though it is an effective treatment of pain, it can also relieve your problems with: Fertility, Headaches, Tobacco Dependence, Morning Sickness, Allergies, Nausea, Induction of Labor, Fibromyalgia, Hypertension, Arthritis, and many other complaints.
