A few of the modalities of treatment used by Charlie Roach:
TuiNa: A form of deep-tissue massage practiced as a compliment to acupuncture. Used to open the body’s defensive (wei) qi and get energy moving in the meridians and muscles and to treat both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions.
Moxibustion: Heating of acupuncture needles with dried herb sticks to activate and warm acupuncture points.
Cupping: The application of glass cups to create suction on the skin. This is to relieve stagnation of qi and blood. Especially effective in treating muscle tension and sports-related injuries.
Electro-stimulation: Provides electrical stimulation to two to four acupuncture needles. Used for the relief of pain and muscle tension.
Herbal Medicine: Chinese and/or Western herbs may be given in the form of teas, pills, and capsules to supplement treatment received at the clinic.
Dietary Counseling: Deficiencies and imbalances can often be traced to dietary issues. You may receive suggestions about what can be added or taken out of your diet to positively affect your overall health.
