Cupping pulls stagnation to the surface of the body, thus lessening the pain response.

Chinese Medicine to Treat Weight Loss

If you need to lose weight, acupuncture works!

The Mei Zen System can be used to:

  • Improve your digestion
  • Help tone your abdominal area and improve firmness
  • Help you lose weight
  • Give you more energy
  • Increase you metabolism
  • Help reduce fat. 

Good Digestion is how you make the Qi that you use to live.  If your digestion is "off" or not functioning at its best, there's a possibility that you are not making the best quality Qi.

Practitioners of Chinese medicine are trained to determine what imbalances are causing the digestion to be less than optimal and to treat it (bring it back to balanced function) using acupuncture, herbs, and other Chinese medicinal therapies
Along with discussion about nutrition and lifestyle, your overall health will benefit from receiving abdominal acupuncture.  When your digestion improves so does your ability to lose weight and maintain that healthy weight. 

Chinese Medicine may be able to help you!  Please contact me for more information.

I use only prepackaged, sterilized disposable needles used only once.

Over the course of many centuries, Classical and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) was designed as a unique system to diagnose and treat illnesses.  Chinese Medicine is fundamentally different from The Western Medical model of health care in that it is a holistic model stemming from The Daoist Tradition. Differentiation of syndromes is the basis of Chinese Medicine diagnosis and treatment of illnesses.

Once an accurate diagnosis is made, Acupuncture, Moxa, Cupping, electrical stimulation, and Herbal Medicines are used to treat the condition.  TCM treatments can be incredibly effective for acute as well as chronic long term illnesses.  Chronic conditions usually require a longer course of treatments while acute illnesses resolve more quickly.  Acupuncture helps the condition immediately while herbal medicine continues to treat the patient between office visits. 

Sessions are catered for individual needs and may include acupuncture, electrical stimulation, moxibustion, as well as consultations on diet, herbs, lifestyle and nutrition.
