Acupuncture is a type of medicine that has been in use for over 2,500 years. This type of medicine involves the insertion of thin needles into various areas of the body to help heal and balance blood flow, lymphatic tissue and inflammation. Here at Eagle Cap Wellness, we use Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as a system of medicine used to view and treat every patient as an individual with a focus on sports medicine. During the treatment we will do a thorough assessment and intake to determine the best form of treatment as well as provide at home exercises to sustain improvement between visits. For more information please see our FAQ page.
Cupping is often used in conjunction with Acupuncture to relieve pain and support the body's innate ability to heal. A heat induced vacuum is created inside glass cups which are then placed on the skin for a few minutes. The temporary suction has been proven to relax muscles, draw up toxins from deep inside the tissues, activate the lymphatic system and help to reduce pain around the local area.
Gua Sha is a scraping technique used to relieve pain, move stagnation, improve circulation, and support mobility in joints. It involves a tool that resembles a spoon or a flattened surface with an edge, and the practitioner uses it to gently scrape the skin in long strokes until light bruising (or ‘sha’) surfaces. This powerful modality is great for both chronic and acute conditions, and relief is typically felt quickly after the treatment is over.
HERBS AND SUPPLEMENTS
At Eagle Cap Wellness, we use both Chinese Herbal formulas and high grade supplements to ensure the healing continues even after you leave our clinic. It is has been shown that patients who take Chinese Herbs regularly, in addition to Acupuncture, see the best long term results.
Massage therapy is a wonderful modality to help promote blood circulation, increase mobility of the fascia, decrease pain, and support well being. AJ is available for both 60 and 90 minute massages.
