TREATMENTS and RECOMMENDATIONS

ACUPUNCTURE

Gaiane uses needles to correct & balance the flow of vital energy also known as “chi”. Benefits include: Balancing of the body, stress relief, immune system boost, pain relief.  It is a form of alternative medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body. It is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine.

MOXIBUSTION

Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy which consists of burning dried mugwort (moxa) on particular points on the body. It plays an important role in the traditional medical systems of China (including Tibet), Japan, Korea,Vietnam, and Mongolia. Suppliers usually age the mugwort and grind it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff or process it further into a cigar-shaped stick. They can use it indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or burn it on the patient's skin. 

I use moxa to warm regions and meridian points. with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and qi.  It is shown that moxibustion mitigates against cold and dampness in the body, and can serve to turn breech babies.

CUPPING

The cupping procedure commonly involves creating a small area of low air pressure next to the skin. However, there are varieties in the tools used, the methods of creating the low pressure, and the procedures followed during the treatment.In practice, cups are normally used only on softer tissue that can form a good seal with the edge of the cup. They may be used singly or with many to cover a larger area. Gaiane may use by themselves or placed over an acupuncture needle.

GUA SHA

A traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. Practitioners believe gua sha releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.
