Her Treatment Methods

Classical Acupuncture

Acupuncture, as it is traditionally practiced, differs from acupuncture as it is commonly practiced. It’s a unique, holistic medical system that includes a comprehensive grasp of disease progression, treatment for a wide range of ailments, and a brilliant, specialized, and detailed theoretical understanding of optimal health. Traditional Chinese Medicine should not be confused with Classical Acupuncture. Treatments with traditional acupuncture are labor-intensive and time-consuming. The method of insertion and manipulation of each needle (which varies greatly depending on the type of meridian) and the ensuing nuanced alterations in the flow of qi in the meridians are given special attention.


Electroacupuncture is similar to traditional acupuncture in that it stimulates the same sites as traditional acupuncture. Needles are put on precise locations along the body, just like in conventional acupuncture. The needles are then connected to a device that uses small clips to generate constant electric pulses. Depending on the condition being treated, these devices are utilized to modify the frequency and intensity of the impulse being given. Two needles are used at a time in electroacupuncture so that the impulses can flow from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated at the same time, with each session lasting no more than 30 minutes.

Plum Blossom Needling

The ancients called the five needles wrapped together like a plum-blossom a ‘plum blossom needle, and the bundle of seven needles a seven-star needle. The flexible grip enables superficial skin tapping with the needle head. This induces skin inflammation but not flesh inflammation, allowing congestion and soreness in the superficial muscle to be released. Although it may appear to be savage, it causes very little pain. Deep tissue massage, on the other hand, is significantly more painful.

Ear Acupuncture

Auriculotherapy, also known as auricular therapy, ear acupuncture, or auriculoacupuncture, is a type of alternative medicine based on the concept that the ear is a microsystem that reflects the entire body through the auricle, which is the outer section of the ear. Conditions impacting the patient’s physical, mental, or emotional health are thought to be treated solely by stimulation of the ear’s surface.

Scalp Acupuncturev

Scalp acupuncture is a type of acupuncture that has aided many people suffering from nervous system problems such as spinal cord injury (SCI) and multiple sclerosis (MS). Acupuncture microsystems for the complete body are represented by specific locations such as the ear, foot, hand, and scalp, in addition to standard body acupuncture. Health-promoting energy flow (also known as qi) can be stimulated in practically any body region by treating a specific microsystem. Although the scalp acupuncture microsystem may treat many of the same conditions as traditional acupuncture, it is particularly helpful in the treatment of nervous system diseases and pain.

Without Needles


Moxibustion is a type of heat therapy that involves the burning of dried plant materials called “moxa” on or near the skin’s surface. The goal is to warm and energize the body’s Qi flow while also dispelling harmful effects. Moxa is typically manufactured from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but other ingredients can also be used. Patients receiving moxibustion frequently experience a sudden flood of warmth that swiftly radiates away from the place of treatment along a specific pathway (typically correlating with the jing luo channel that is being treated).

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient kind of alternative medicine in which a local suction is formed on the skin, with the belief that this promotes healing by mobilizing blood flow. Heat (fire) or mechanical devices are used to create suction (hand or electrical pumps). The skin is gently pushed upwards by producing a vacuum in a cup over the target area of the skin using either heat or suction. For five to fifteen minutes, the cup remains in place. Some people feel it can aid in the treatment of pain, deep scar tissue in muscles and connective tissue, muscle knots, and edema.
