Acupuncture uses the power of the body to treat itself, it can effectively treat almost any condition or pain. At Healing & Wellness Spa we specialize in treatment for acne, pain, stress relief, menopause symptoms and facial rejuvenation.
Acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body by inserting thin needles through the skin. In traditional Chinese medicine theory, this regulates the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians.
Biopuncture is a safe, effective micro-injection therapy used to treat common incidences of pain and inflammatory conditions. It works by introducing ultra-low doses of plant-based and mineral-based formulas as a natural alternative to cortisone. It injected directly into targeted areas of the body that are experiencing pain and inflammation. These “mini” injections are designed to stimulate the body’s natural healing process in order to produce a faster healing response. Healing comes from the natural response of the body’s immune system to the injected products, rather than from the products themselves.
Although there are literally thousands of traditional herbal formulas for just about every condition imaginable, a formula is almost always modified by the TCM practitioner to suit the subtle nuances of the condition and constitution of the patient, making each formulation highly individualized. Harmony between two opposing yet complementary forces, called yin and yang, supports health, and disease results from an imbalance between these forces. A snapshot of conditions typically treated with Chinese herbal medicine includes:
- Insomnia and fatigue
- Loss of appetite and common digestive disorders
- Constipation and diarrhoea
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Common cold and influenza
- Chronic headaches
- Skin disorders
- Fluid retention
- Anxiety, depression and stress
- Rheumatoid and osteoarthritis
- Premenstrual syndrome and painful menstruation
- Excessive menstruation
- Impotence and prostate disorders
- Disorders associated with menopause
Conventional treatments for depression work to suppress symptoms, rather than permanently correct them. Homeopathy works differently. It stimulates a person’s innate ability to restore natural balance. For example, homeopathic medicine may be able to modulate the activity of serotonin, dopamine, cortisol, or other chemical messengers that regulate mood and energy levels.
