ACUPUNCTURE

Healing Your Entire Body

Acupuncture is a technique in which practitioners stimulate specific points on the body - most often by inserting thin needles through the skin. 

Traditional Chinese medicine explains that health is the result of a harmonious balance of the complementary extremes of "yin" and "yang" of the life force known as "Qi".

Qi is said to flow through meridians, or pathways, in the human body. These meridians and energy flows are accessible through 350 acupuncture points in the body.

Inserting needles into these points with appropriate combinations is said to bring the energy flow back into proper balance.

Acupuncture points are seen as places where nerves, muscles, and connective tissue can be stimulated. The stimulation increases blood flow, while at the same time triggering the activity of the body's natural painkillers.

Acupuncture is a complete medical protocol focused on correcting imbalances of energy in the body. From its inception in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture has been used traditionally to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as to improve general health.

We want all of our clients to walk out of Lotus Acupuncture feeling calm, relaxed, and refreshed.

CUPPING

Relaxing and energysing therapy

Cupping originated thousands of years ago and is one of the oldest forms of manual therapy. By placing a glass or a plastic cup onto the skin, the therapist creates a vacuum in the cup which draws the skin, muscle, and fascia up into the cup. This vacuum can be created with either a hand suction pump or a burning cotton wool ball.

Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue.

The benefits of the cupping therapy are as follows:

1. Provides a feeling of relief from physical and emotional tensions
2. Begins the healing and regeneration process - the exchange of blood allows the removal of toxins and dead cells
3. Enhances circulation
4. Warms the skin, and softens tissues to regain elasticity
5. Reduces inflammation

ELECTRO-ACUPUNCTURE

Experience the benefits of Electro-acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. 

As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, providing a weak electrical current that stimulates the acupuncture needles during the treatment.

The advantage of using electric acupuncture technique over traditional is that it prolongs stimulation without tissue damaged and can be controlled and monitored easily.
