A blend of ancient and modern therapies to stimulate the healing process.
The Biomat is an FDA approved medical device that
combines Far Infared Rays (FIR), negative ions and
the conductive properties of amethyst crystal. Far
infrared light stimulates the production of healthy cell
tissue, promotes faster healing, and encourages the
elimination of cellular wastes and toxins. Negative ions stimulate the creation of more calcium and sodium minerals in the blood, which increases blood alkalinity and improves health. Negative Ions have a positive effect on the rate at which Serotonin is oxidized in the bloodstream, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy and clarity. Amethyst bolsters the production of hormones and strengthens the cleansing organs, circulatory system and blood, brings the immune system and body metabolism into balance and harmony and soothes the nervous system. Far Infrared Heat is pure energy in the form of invisible light used to increase circulation to detoxify the body of harmful toxins and acid wastes. Biomat therapy is included with every acupuncture treatment to further enhance your results!
COLD LASER THERAPY (LLLT)
Studies have shown that through the action of photo-stimulation of light reactive biological receptors (chromophores) in the body, Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) has demonstrated the ability to significantly accelerate and enhance the body’s natural defense and repair components in the presence of injury, inflammation and certain disease processes. Studies have also shown that by modifying the effects and limiting the duration of inflammation as well as enhancing specific repair and healing processes, LLLT is consistent in providing pain relief, reducing injury damage and loss of function, in addition to facilitating more rapid repair and stronger healed tissue structures. Multiple clinical studies have noted the following results of LLLT:
• Increased collagen production
• Enhanced nerve regeneration
• Increased vasodilation
• Reduced inflammatory duration
• Increased cell metabolism
• Increased pain threshold
• Increased cell membrane potential
• Reduced edema magnitude
• Increased microcirculation
• Increased tissue and bone repair
• Increased lymphatic response
• Increased enzyme response
Cupping is a method of relieving local congestion by applying a
partial vacuum that is created in glass or plastic cups either by heat
or by suction. Cupping has been used for thousands of years to
relieve pain and discomfort caused by the congestion of blood,
mucus, or toxins.
Cupping helps to improve local circulation and draw toxins from
the skin and out through the pores. Cupping can be effective for a
wide range of ailments including joint and muscular pain, arthritis,
edema, swelling, asthma, bronchitis, abdominal pain, stomachache,
indigestion, headache, common cold and flu, fever, low back pain,
painful menstruation, and cough. Learn more, click here.
Acu-taping is a new method in the treatment of pain, inflammation
and sports injuries. Acu-taping draws its knowledge from traditional
Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and the holistic principles of
osteopathy. Unlike traditional simple kinesio taping, which primarily
tapes the area of pain, the taping protocols used in Acu-taping are
designed to stimulate related acupuncture points as well,
combining principles of acupressure and massage for improved
healing and pain relief. Acu-tape is placed over painful muscles
or joints to provide support, relieve pain, and improve lymph
drainage, while encouraging full freedom of motion. When a muscle is inflamed or swollen, the space between the skin and the muscle becomes compressed, irritating the muscle’s pain receptors. Acu-tape is able to lift the skin away from the underlying muscle, relieving painful irritation. During the course of normal movement throughout the day, the tape provides a gentle but consistent massage to the inflamed area.
Gua Sha is a healing technique that involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument. This results in the appearance of small red petechiae called ‘sha’, that will fade in 2 to 3 days. Raising Sha removes blood stagnation considered pathogenic, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes. The patient experiences immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, nausea, and so on. Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.
HOMEOPATHIC INJECTION THERAPY
Homeopathic Injection Therapy is a safe and efficient technique in
which specific locations are injected with biological products to
stimulate the natural self-healing capacities of your body. Only low
doses are injected, so there are virtually no toxic side-effects.
Injection Therapy ampoules contain very low concentrations of plant
extracts, based on the theory of homeopathic medicine, “like treats
like.” Micro-doses of the right product can have a huge effect on the
body. Injection therapy produces clinical effects because it stimulates
the immune system to restart its healing capacities.
VITAMIN B-12 INJECTIONS
New Direction Natural Medicine administers vitamin B-12 injections
using Methylcobalamin – the most pure, natural and preservative-free
form of B-12. Injections are administered directly into the muscle to
provide immediate effects and better absorption. Vitamin B-12 is used to maintain healthy nervous system function, increase red blood cell production, increase energy levels, promote production of good DNA, decrease stress and aid in weight loss.
