Acupuncture Modalities Offered at Nava Center
This modality involves the placement of hair-fine needles at strategic points on the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine holds that these points alter the flow of energy along pathways called meridians. Scientists believe that the needles alter nerve conduction and release pain relievers called endorphins.
Also known as meridian acupuncture this style uses finer needles than Chinese acupuncture and needling is more surface level.
This style of acupuncture looks at the flow of the seasons and how they show up in the human body as a method of diagnosing imbalances and creating balance within the system as a whole.
This method originally created by Dr. Tan is a method of treating pain that uses meridians to mirror body parts to treat pain in different areas of the body.
Gua Sha employs rubbing and scraping techniques using instruments made from jade, soapstone, or other materials. The scraping action temporarily leaves red marks on the skin, but it also breaks up scar tissue, reduces swelling, and improves blood flow at the treatment site.
Therapeutic technique where glass or plastic cups are applied to the skin creating suction as a way of decreasing inflammation and improving blood flow.
Chinese mugwort is an herb that is applied directly or indirectly to acupuncture points in order to bring warmth to the meridians and improve circulation.
This is a more aggressive form of traditional acupuncture that involves direct manipulation of painful knots in the muscles causing them to twitch which leads to pain relief.
