Bayside Acupuncture Chiropractic & Natural Therapies - TCM
TCM is a self-contained holistic healing system with a unique set of theories of anatomy, health and treatment. TCM focuses on diet and prevention and uses acupuncture, herbal medicine, massage and exercise, to stimulate the body's innate ability to heal itself.
'Cupping' is a relatively unheard-of TCM technique that employs suction by way of small glass cups placed on the skin. Cupping is in some ways akin to the inverse of massage - instead of using downward pressure on muscles, it applies light pressure to bring them upward. Cupping is able to loosen muscles, stimulate blood flow, and calm the nervous system (it is ideal for treating high blood pressure). Cupping is efficacious in the relief of back and neck pain, tight muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraine and rheumatism.
Another lesser-known TCM technique used at our clinic is Moxibustion (Moxa). Its use dates back thousands of years and involves the burning of the herb mugwort to facilitate healing. Moxa gently heats tissue and muscles with the purpose of strengthening the blood, stimulating qi flow and supporting overall health. If a cold or stagnant condition is diagnosed, Moxa expels cold and heats the meridians, allowing a smoother flow of blood and qi.
