Acupuncture is the primary modality that most patients receive in the AOMA clinics, though there are many other adjunct therapies available. Acupuncture is the practice of inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are often as fine as a human hair) into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture points are areas of designated electrical sensitivity. Stimulation of these points has been shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems.
Some AOMA licensed practitioners offer Medical Qigong and Asian Bodywork. Please ask a receptionist about availability.
Medical Qigong works with the “qi” of individuals without the use of needles. It is well suited for very sensitive people, children and people in poor health. It involves working subtly with a person’s qi or energy in ways that are non-invasive, similar to Reiki. Medical Qigong is well suited for the following disorders: stress, anxiety, depression, headache, insomnia, poor memory, poor concentration, hypertension, PMS, perimenopausal syndrome, asthma, and digestive issues.
Asian bodywork has been practiced in China for over 2,000 years and is now considered an important healing modality in Chinese medicine. In this needle-free, hands-on therapy, Asian bodywork practitioners make recommendations for energetic exercises by rolling, tapping, and pressure to increase circulation and relieve pain throughout the body. Asian bodywork is used to effectively treat a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions, including orthopedic injuries and chronic pain. It is also used successfully in stroke rehabilitation.
Stand-alone herbal consultations are available if a patient does not desire to receive acupuncture or another modality during their visit. Ask a receptionist for details.
