Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture is a form of therapy that promotes natural healing of the body. The science and art of acupuncture involves insertion of needles into specific points along the meridians of the body. Acupuncture forms a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which originated in China over 5000 years ago. Currently, acupuncture is a safe and effective natural therapy and an increasingly popular form of healthcare that is used by a wide range of cultural and social backgrounds. Some studies show that it activates the nervous system, initiating a cascade of hormones and neurotransmitters that influence the body's own internal regulating systems, promoting health and healing.The major benefits of Acupuncture are as follows:
Drug-free pain relief
Assists prevention against disease
Treats the cause as well as the symptoms
Holistic approach to illness, linking body, mind and emotions
Effectively treats many common ailments

Cupping is a method of treatment that relieves pain in the body through the use of suction. The vacuum created inside the cup anchors the cup to the skin and pulls the skin upward into the cup. The suction on the skin opens the pores, stimulates the flow of blood and Qi, breaks up stagnation, and creates a way for toxins to be drawn out of the body. It relieves aches and pains, improves circulation, and also helps with respiratory and digestive issues.

Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’, After applying massage oil, a special tool is used in a scraping motion in a single direction to increase blood flow and break up scar tissue. Results may include redness, welting & bruising.
Clinical studies show Gua sha may produce an anti-inflammatory & immune protective effect that persists for days following a single treatment. This accounts for its effect on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting etc., and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders including liver inflammation in hepatitis.

SAAT Alpa-Gal Allergy Treatment
SAAT is a highly specific procedure that has the ability to significantly diminish sensitivities to any kind of allergy. This procedure was built on the work of Dr. Paul Nogier in France in the 1960s. Dr. Nogier is the father of modern auricular acupuncture and discovered multiple points and zones on the ear that could be treated with a variety of methods. Dr. Nader Soliman began SAAT around 2003 as detailed on other internet sites. SAAT treatments have the effect of reprograming your autonomic nervous system to instruct the immune system how to respond to a particular allergen. Some use the term reprogram, some desensitize. Currently I am only treating the Alpha-Gal allergy. I hope to continue the training to be able to include more allergens, but for now, this is the only one I can offer.
