3 Treatments (Acupuncture, Cupping, Herbal Medicine)
- Acupuncture (針)
Acupuncture is a traditional health care modality that has flourished in Korea and China for more than 3,000 years. Acupuncture is a therapy which uses natural laws and energetic with the application of sterilized, disposable needles to specific “points” of the body. These points are grouped along specific pathways or meridians that cross the body. As long as energy, called Qi, freely flows through these pathways, health is maintained. When the flow of Qi is absent, excessive, interrupted or blocked in an area, health is disrupted as well resulting in illness or pain. By stimulating acupuncture points along the meridians, Qi is released and regulated, restoring health. The side effects of acupuncture may be bruising, minor bleeding, feeling light-headed, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and muscle spasm. They should only last for a short time. Always hydrate yourself after treatment to minimize these side effects. We strongly encourage patient to eat something (even a light granola bar) before receiving acupuncture treatment. The reason is that without eating anything, patient might faint after the treatment due to significantly lowered blood pressure.
– Here are some of the most common symptoms we treat:
- General pain relief (neck & shoulder pain, lower back pain, knee pain,,,)
- Muscle stiffness, numbness, tingling and spasms
- Arthritis, Tendinitis & Joint pain
- Anxiety & Depression

- Cupping (附缸)
Cupping is a therapy in which a jar is attached to the skin surface to cause local congestion through the negative pressure. The cupping method has the function of warming and promoting the free flow of Qi and blood in the meridians, dispelling cold dampness, diminishing swellings and pains. While cupping is considered painless, red marks, swelling, and bruises can appear since the treatment causes blood to be drawn to the surface of the skin. These marks typically disappear within a few hours or days.
- Herbal Medicine (藥)
Herbal medicine is the main modality in Oriental Medicine. Herbal medicine is prepared differently for each patient. Each herb is carefully chosen and composed according to its natural strength and character, combining them to create a powerful remedy. Herbal medicine helps pain and disorder effectively by changing and creating body environment to heal, balance and rejuvenate.
