Safe, Effective Services From Our Norcross & Buford Acupuncturist
Our acupuncturist at Acupuncture Healing & Wellness, LLC, Dr. Henry Park, offers comprehensive natural services, including cupping therapy, herbal treatment and acupuncture in Norcross & Buford. We can combine these services as needed to create your own individual holistic healing program.
Acupuncture dates back at least 3,500 years to the early practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These healers mapped out lines called meridians that conduct qi, or life energy, throughout the body, as well as an enormous number of acupuncture points along or near the meridians where this energy could be manipulated. If qi flow is disrupted, pain and ill health follow. Inserting acupuncture needles at specific points, in specific groupings, can redirect and normalize the qi flow to restore health.
From the viewpoint of Western medicine, acupuncture points largely correspond to nerve clusters that route pain and other types of signals. The hair-fine needles (which don't cause any pain of their own) correct errant nerve function while also causing your body to release its own natural painkillers, endorphins. Our acupuncturist can use this highly versatile technique to treat everything from acute and chronic pain to circulatory, digestive, respiratory and even emotional/psychological conditions.
Cupping therapy may be administered either as a standalone treatment or (more commonly) in addition to acupuncture in Norcross & Buford. Heat is used to create suction pressure inside small cups or jars, which are then applied to the skin along the same meridians used in acupuncture. The suction pulls the skin and underlying tissues upward in a kind of opposite to the effect of massage. Gliding the cup along the skin transfers the suction effect along the meridian, opening these channels to encourage the flow of qi.
Cupping therapy can have a calming effect on the nervous system, making it good for conditions such as high blood pressure and anxiety. It also relaxes the muscles and boosts circulation to the tissues. Our acupuncturist may prescribe cupping therapy for respiratory congestion, muscle pain, migraines, rheumatism and many other common disorders.
Herbal Consultation and Treatment
Herbal healing techniques are a keystone of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Over 11,500 different natural substances are used to create Chinese herbs for the treatment of a wide range of ailments. These compounds address the underlying cause of your symptoms with fewer dangers and side effects than Western pharmaceuticals. We can use them to treat a wide range of issues, including circulatory, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, reproductive, skin, psychological and joint disorders.
Herbal medicine treatment, with or without acupuncture, begins with a consultation. Our acupuncturist will discuss your health with you and prescribe a precisely-tuned, personalized blend of herbs for your specific condition, along with any other therapies that can help you get better.
