Acupuncture is a 5000-year-old health science, which was developed in the orient. It is primarily done by placing needles in the skin at various locations to relieve pain or treat various dysfunctions in the body. Here at the Raya Clinic the two doctors certified in acupuncture utilize a variety of acupuncture techniques including:
***All acupuncture is performed in massage/heated reclining chairs in a secluded and calming room with chakra music softly playing in the background.***
The Acupuncture techniques implored in our office are used primarily to balance the patients energy levels and aid in proper healing. There is an energy network traversing just below the surface of the skin, which communicates from, exterior to the internal organs and structures of the body. This energy works in harmony with the body’s circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location becomes evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key “acupoints” on the body may restore harmony to the affected area.
The doctors here use Electro Meridian Imaging or EMI, to pinpoint which energy meridians are improperly balanced or blocked. They can also use this machine to treat these problems using electric stimulation of the same acupoints treated with needles or laser.
