Acupuncture is the most common method of treatment used in Chinese Medicine. It is quickly gaining popularity in the West, and has been used by over 14 million Americans. Acupuncture uses very thin, hair-like needles to stimulate optimal function of the body. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce stress hormones, strengthen the immune system, and reduce pain. In our clinic we use the Balance Method, or distal acupuncture. This means using points that are away from the center of the body. This style of treatment is very different than some other styles of acupuncture in that it is more comfortable and relaxing for most patients.
ATP therapy is a cutting edge application of micro-current therapy done at very specific (hundredth of a second) frequencies. This treatment allows us to treat chronic or stubborn conditions more quickly and easily. Treatment with ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ is non-invasive and painless. The currents used in ATP Resonance BioTherapy™are so low that the patient often does not feel them. During the procedure, patients may notice certain effects, including warmth and a softening of affected tissues. The procedure is quick, you’re in and out of the office in about 30 minutes. ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ treatment can and often results in a complete absence of or control of symptoms, even in severe conditions, that may have been present for years.
Chinese Herbology is a very well developed science, and is our specialty at Orlando Acupuncture. We have been able to source imperial grade herbs that are very difficult to find in the US. These herbs allow us to treat a variety of challenging symptoms and conditions that might be considered untreatable by Western medicine. At Orlando Acupuncture we use traditionally made products (usually pills) that are double tested for potency and purity. Herbs are also available in teabag, liquid, and powder forms. For skin conditions herbs are prepared as topical ointments. Chinese herbs have been found to be significantly safer than prescription drugs in clinical research. Some of our herbal products are available to the public at our Winter Park location. For more about Chinese Herbs please visit our Herbs page.
Cupping is the therapeutic application of suction by way of glass, bamboo, or plastic cups on the body. Usually done on the back. This is another way of stimulating acupuncture points. Suction is achieved by using a flame to generate a vacuum inside the cup. Cupping is very good for cleaning out toxins and releasing very tight muscles. Examples of conditions often treated with cupping include: Bronchitis, Fibromyalgia, and Shoulder Pain.
Our foot soaks are sourced directly from the high mountains of Tibet. This special blend of herbs is very effective for improving microcirculation throughout the lower half of the body. They are traditionally used for a very wide range of conditions, but modern research shows these soaks to be especially beneficial for heart and other cardiac conditions where blood flow may be reduced or blocked in some parts of the body. We commonly use these foot soaks on our patients with neuropathy, fertility, and arthritis.
