Pulsed Magnetic Therapy

pulsed-electromagnetic-field-therapyPEMF uses electrical energy to direct a series of magnetic pulses through injured tissue whereby each magnetic pulse induces a tiny electrical signal that stimulates cellular repair. Many studies have also demonstrated the effectiveness of PEMF in healing soft-tissue wounds; suppressing inflammatory responses at the cell membrane level to alleviate pain, and increasing range of motion. The value of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy has been shown to cover a wide range of conditions, with well documented trials carried out by hospitals, rheumatologists, physiotherapists and neurologists.

Cupping

cupping-suctioninactionCupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin.  A partial vacuum is created in cups placed on the skin either by means of heat or suction. Our clinic uses old and new adaptations on the cross cultural healing therapy of cupping. We use cups under specific pressures to help restore proper circulation to the body. Cupping additionally removes stagnation (toxicity) from tissues. It can also be used diagnostically to determine the level of congestion.

Gua Sha Therapy
