Meridian Based Acupuncture
The meridians or acupuncture channels are used to treat a wide variety of conditions and are the most widely used method to address functional and pain problems. There are hundreds of points from which individualized treatments are designed.
The Auricular system is an ancient system that utilizes points only on the cartilage of the ear. This form of acupuncture can be used as a stand alone treatment for headaches, generalized pain, PTSD and general wellness. It can also be used concurrently with other treatments.
Scalp points are used for addressing neurological problems such as Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke recovery, Bell's palsy and RSD.
Electroacupuncture uses low and high frequency electrical stimulation applied to the needles. The sensation can feel like a light tapping (at low frequency) and more of a buzzing or pressure sensation (high frequency). Electroacupuncture is a mainstay of pain treatments and certain functional problems.
