Your appointment at Easton Acupuncture & Healing Arts involves much more than needles. Acupuncture is a system of Eastern medicine that has been passed down through a chain of practitioners for over 2,500 years. It is based on a philosophy that has remained the same since its inception. However, the practice of acupuncture continues to evolve over time as experience confirms its benefits and techniques adapt to modern life.
Each treatment is tailored specifically to your needs. Any of the following techniques may be utilized to support your needs and achieve your wellness goals:
Myofascial Trigger Point Dry Needling: The release of chronic or acute musculature with acupuncture needles.
Acupressure: Stimulation of acupuncture points using physical pressure.
Cupping: A cup is placed on the skin and suction is applied to promote free flow of the body’s naturally occurring blood and lymph systems.
Gua Sha: Similar to cupping, smooth tools are used to stroke the skin in order to clear blockages and promote free flow of the body’s naturally occuring healing systems.
Reiki: Also known as “Palm healing” or “the laying of hands.” Reiki a is a gentle form of energy work, originating in Japan, that promotes physical and emotional healing.
Meditation: Focused breath work to activate the parasympathetic (rest & digest) nervous system and support the body’s ability to heal itself.
Vizualization: Guided imagery to support the mind body connection.
Tui Na: Chinese medical massage techniques.
Electrical Stimulation: Gentle, pulsating electrical current added to acupuncture needles to increase stimulation or release tense musculature.
Lifestyle Coaching: Discussion of habits such as diet, exercise, nutrition, emotional patterns and sleep.
