Acupuncture is among one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It is a safe and effective system of alternative and preventative health care that treats a wide range of health concerns. As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Acupuncture aims to restore and maintain health through the stimulation of specific points on the body. Acupuncture assists the body in optimizing the body’s healing mechanisms and providing a natural way to achieve and maintain health.
The body’s ability to heal itself is enhanced by what we feed it. Although we cannot control our genetic or DNA make-up, we can control how we feed our body to work and heal optimally. Milwaukee Acupuncture and Wellness works with each patient to make diet modifications based on their various symptoms and/or medical conditions.
We incorporate both Western and Chinese nutritional recommendations to achieve and maintain good health. Examples of dietary modifications include foods to boost your energy, reduce menstrual cramping, stabilize blood sugar levels, enhance fertility, lose weight etc.
Good nutrition is an important aspect of the healing process. We can control what we eat and how we nourish our bodies. Obtaining optimal nutrition speeds up your healing process, decreases inflammation within the body, improves energy, and prevents disease within the body.
Supplements, vitamins, and nutraceuticals are also available at Milwaukee Acupuncture and Wellness. Nutritional and herbal consultations can determine which supplement or formula is the best option for your medical condition and symptoms.
Chinese herbal medicine and nutritional supplements are highly effective for most medical conditions. Conditions often treated with the use of herbs and/or supplements include: menstrual disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, digestive complaints, low energy, diabetes, insomnia, and stress management.
At Milwaukee Acupuncture and Wellness we utilize a Chinese therapeutic massage called Tui Na. Tui na is a combination of both massage and acupressure which works on different muscle groups and meridians, while applying pressure to specific acupoints. Tui na improves your health, energy level and vitality.
Tui na is highly effective for specific medical conditions, including chronic pain, musculoskeletal conditions, stress management, digestive complaints, and headaches. Most often utilized for back, neck, shoulder pain, sciatica and tennis elbow, there is also significant evidence that headaches, constipation, PMS symptoms and emotional conditions may also be treated effectively and responds well to Tui na massage.
