Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine
Acupuncture was developed and refined over the course of thousands of years as a method of dissolving the energy blockages and impairments that may contribute to illness and disease. Once your physical condition has been evaluated and identified, extremely thin, flexible needles are inserted into meridians (also called energy pathways), which run just beneath the skin thus communicating with the body’s major organs. Vaziri Alternative Medicine uses only sterile, disposable needles, so you never have to worry about the risk of infection. Acupuncture is painless. Patients may feel a mild tingling sensation or heaviness when the needles are inserted. Some patients report a feeling of deep relaxation or even euphoria after treatment — decidedly a pleasurable experience. Acupuncture is used to activate the body’s innate ability to repair, restore, and heal itself, and aids in re-establishing the state of balance necessary to maintaining good health.
Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of Alternative Medicine used by the Egyptians, Chinese and Middle Eastern cultures dating back to 1550 B.C. A more modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump instead of fire to create the vacuum inside the cup. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping typically loosens muscles, encourages blood flow, and sedates the nervous system (making it an ideal treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is quickly gaining popularity among athletes; for example Michael Phelps had the therapy in preparation for the 2016 Olympics. Cupping can be used to:
-Relieve Back Pain
-Headaches or Migraines
-Muscle Soreness & Stiffness
-Stimulate the Flow of Energy (Chi)
-Anxiety & Depression
-Allergies & Asthma
“Acupuncture and cupping, more than half of the ills cured,” is a famous Chinese saying.
Herbs have effectively been used for thousands of years to facilitate health and wholeness and to prevent or treat diseases. Herbal remedies are specifically formulated to meet the unique needs of each patient, based on a thorough analysis of your personal medical profile. You may benefit from the healing power of herbs, powders, tinctures or prepared pills. Herbal formulas rarely trigger unwanted side effects.
