Moxibustion & Infra-Red Therapy
Providing Tui Na, Gau Sha & Cupping Therapies
While modern medicine is necessary for a variety of sicknesses and diseases, it isn’t the only treatment method. Actually, it often isn’t even the best available treatment method! Instead of spending money on drugs and possibly damaging treatments, patients should first consider Chinese therapeutic medical practices for a variety of ailments. These practices include moxibustion and infrared light treatment.
Yang energy is considered by the Chinese to be the energy of life. As people age, their yang energy increases to a certain point, then decreases in a bell curve. As people live longer, their yang energy is slowly consumed. Moxibustion helps to deliver a pure form of yang energy, which boosts health, treats diseases and increases the life force of a patient.
It’s important to understand that unhealthy practices affect yang energy. As people continue to eat unhealthy foods, breathe in toxins, smoke and engage in other unhealthy activities, their yang energy will decrease at an expedient rate. Moxibustion helps to treat and reverse the damage done by the lifestyles most modern people live.
Red Light Therapy / Infra-Red
Red light therapy is a practice that involves the use of infrared light energy to treat various skin issues, increase hair growth, reduce psoriasis, heal sun damage, diminish scarring and more. More advanced light therapy may even be able to help with the treatment of traumatic brain injury, and may help to regenerate damaged nerves. Red light therapy is still being researched, and more and more benefits are being found.
Infrared light therapy involves visible red and invisible infrared light to stimulate a series of metabolic events. These lights are absorbed by photoreceptors in the cell, which puts the entire healing process in motion. The blood flow of a patient is increased, and the body is able to better receive the nutrients and oxygen that it needs to thrive and repair damage. This process reduces inflammation, while also stimulating regeneration.
While an infrared therapy bed can be pretty expensive, many acupuncture and Chinese medicine practices have an infrared bed available.
