Infrared Therapy 

Infrared Light Therapy is becoming a common treatment for pain relief utilized by Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Acupuncturist, Massage Therapists, and Physical Therapists. The human body (cells) has higher absorption efficiency for far infrared energy than near infrared. The Infrared Light lamp emits a special band of far infrared electromagnetic energy which penetrates deep into the human body and can increase circulation and loosening tight muscles. This warming not only feels good and helps you relax, it also aids in healing damaged tissue. It is often administered to prevent scar tissue formation, inflammation, and degenerative; osteoarthritis and brings wound healing and pain relief for scars, arthritis, Carpal Tunnel syndrome, inflammation, tennis elbow, fibromyalgia, sprains, headaches, diabetic ulcers, neuralgia, bursitis, sinsusitis, edema, skin care, etc. We use the Infrared Light lamp along with acupuncture and other modalities to enhance results.

Moxibustion

Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with 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.

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. 

Electrical Stimulation

Electrical Stimulation (aka Electro-acupuncture) adds a modern element to the ancient principles of acupuncture. After inserting acupuncture needles, small clips connected to the electro machine are attached to the needle handles. Traditional acupuncture stimulates the points manually, however, electro-acupuncture sends pulses of electrical current between needles. The principles are similar to those of a TENS machine.This modality is very useful in the treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, sciatica, migraine, tennis elbow and more.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that capture the plant’s scents and characteristics. At Valley Acupuncture, we use essential oils in the practice of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy means the oils can be diffused, applied to the skin, or inhaled. We create our own essential oil blends with each mixture containing many different benefits, like promoting relaxation, strengthening the immune system, killing bacteria/viruses, and so much more! Just some of the many essential oils include eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender, rosemary, and tea tree. We incorporate the oils every day because here at Valley Acupuncture, healthy living is a way of life! Our creative, organic blends are sold in the forms of sprays, roll-ons, and candles. Incorporate these simple yet powerful essential oil blends into your everyday life, and you won’t be disappointed. Come by the office for yours today!
