Balance in Motion is Your Costa Mesa Acupuncture Specialist
The ancient Chinese believed that there is a universal life energy called Chi or Qi (pronunciation is similar to “chee”) present in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways that are called meridians. The Qi consists of all essential life activities which include the spiritual, emotional, mental and the physical aspects of life. A person’s health is influenced by the flow of Qi in the body, in combination with the universal forces of Yin and Yang.
If the flow of Qi is insufficient, unbalanced or interrupted, Yin and Yang become unbalanced, and illness may occur. Qi travels throughout the body along “Meridians” or special pathways. As long as this energy flows freely throughout the meridians, health is maintained, but once the flow of energy is blocked, the system is disrupted and pain and illness occur. Imagine rivers that flood and cause disasters or an electrical grid short-circuiting that causes blackouts. Acupuncture works to restore normal functions by stimulating certain points on the meridians in order to free up the Chi energy.
The acupuncture points are specific locations where the Meridians come to the surface of the skin, and are easily accessible by “needling,” Moxibustion, and Acupressure. The connections between them ensure that there is an even circulation of Qi, a balance between Yin and Yang. Our Costa Mesa Acupuncture works well with Chiropractic care.
Our Costa Mesa Acupuncture specialists use one or more
of the following treatment modalities, according to the patient’s needs.
- Acupuncture: Inserting very fine needles the size of a human hair into specific points in the body. This brings about functional balance and restores blood flow.
- Electro-acupuncture: The stimulation of the inserted needles with a small electrical current. For profound analgesia, nerve dysfunction, paralysis, withdrawal symptoms, etc.
- Moxibustion: Promotes the warmth of acupuncture points by igniting Ai Ye close to them. This treatment is especially good for certain diseases associated with coldness in the body and helps strengthen the immune system. Heat lamp: Promotes healing by warming up the body and reducing inflammation.
- Tui-na: Therapeutically massaging specific points, muscles, and tissues, in kneading motion.
- Cupping: This is a stronger form of massage that creates a vacuum in a suction cup placed on the skin. Increases blood flow to painful and tight areas to relax and relief pain.
- Ear acupuncture or ear seeds: Diseases can be prevented or healed by treating points on the ear. Since the ear is a holographic representation of the whole body, the stimulation of specific points with needles or small seeds is therapeutic. Herbal Patches: Promote the movement of blood to reduce pain and inflammation.
- Medicinal Herbs: Prescription of natural herbal remedies used for successfully for thousands of years for a wide range of diseases.
