Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long and rich history of using acupuncture to treat problems from depression and weight loss to infertility and stress management. Acupuncturists at Mint have extensively studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and regularly incorporate acupuncture into treatment plans for patients.
Many people don’t realize how painless acupuncture actually is. Using only the finest needles acupuncture is often not perceived except for the great feeling patients get during and afterwards.
Tongue and Pulse assessment is a key part of understanding a person’s diagnosis in Asian medicine. It is part of a thorough assessment to uncover the underlying blockages that contribute to symptoms.
In addition, we use techniques like myofascial trigger point releasing otherwise known as dry needling and electro-acupuncture muscle stimulation, which effectively treat many physical pain problems.
Cupping therapy is a great complement to acupuncture. It has become very popular in elite athletic circles including with olympians. Cupping offers a release of muscular tension, stagnation in circulation and provides both relaxation and pain relief.
