Hong Liu offers the following acupuncture treatments at our West-Island, Montreal clinic:
Electro-acupuncture – needles are electrically stimulated by various frequencies and voltages by attachement to a battery-powered machine using wires with small clips on the ends. This is extremely effective for pain relief.
Acupressure – a technique involving pressure on acupoints using the thumbs or fingers, capable of giving relief of symptoms.
Moxibustion or Moxa: this technique applies heat to or near the handles of the needles.In traditional acupuncture this is used whent here is a ‘cold syndrome’ or for moving energy.
Cupping – in this treatment cups are placed on the skin to create suction. The suction of the cups mobilizes blood flow to promote the healing of a broad range of medical ailments and removes harmful substances and toxins from the body to promote healing. The skin’s appearance generally returns to normal within a few days as sometimes bruising may occur.
Gua Sha – an instrument-assisted method of decreasing fascial adhesions, thereby diminishing pain. This ancient method of promoting “qi” and blood circulation as well as the removal of toxic heat, stagnant blood and lymph fluid from the body is an extremely important method of improving one’s health.
