Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Qi Gong

Qi Gong means "life energy cultivation" and is traditionally seen as a method to cultivate and balance qi. The practice involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. Qi Gong is a safe and gentle meditative exercise that promotes healing of the mind and body.

Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbal supplements are often recommended in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect. While many cultures have herbal medicine traditions, the sophistication of Chinese herbology is recognized throughout the world and has a long history reaching back several thousand years.

External use of liniments and salves can also be very helpful in reducing local inflammation, pain and stiffness of muscles and joints.

Together we can determine which herbal supplements are best suited to meet your unique needs.

There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. Chinese herbs have been shown to be extremely effective and normally have minimal side effects, however it is very important to tell your practitioner about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with the herbal supplements that we might recommend.

The herbal dietary supplements recommended by AHC are sourced through suppliers that make every effort to ensure that the quality of their products meet the safety requirements of the FDA and the World Health Organization (WHO).
