Acupuncture, is only one of the complex branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been around for over 2,500 years. It involves the insertion of fine needles. (Roughly 10 acupuncture needles can fit into 1 hypodermic needle). It is through specific placement into the surface, ie: skin, of the body that the trained acupuncturist can regulate the bodies natural healing capabilities.

Health benefits include:

Improved healing
Reduced inflammation
Strengthened constitution
Regulated functions of the internal organs
Improved circulation
Building up the immune system
Helping to produce a feeling of well being

Minimal discomfort is felt. In fact, some people have commented that the feeling is unfamiliar but pleasant and relaxing.

Some reasons to try acupuncture

  • Views each patient as a living organism who's body is working together as an integral whole. Taking into consideration all parts of their being; spiritual, mental and physical and treating in accordance to their specific needs.
  • Uses the bodies natural healing abilities to promote wellness
  • Finds the root of the problem and stops it from growing instead of just masking symptoms.
  • Not only for when you're sick. It works extremely well as preventative medicine.
  • Has been proven to treat over 50 "western" medical disorder
  • Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is the most used form of "alternative" medicine in the world today with and estimated 2.5 billion people treated a year.

What it is

How it works

Frequently used and complements acupuncture. Suction cups, placed at various points on the body, create a vacuum that draws toxins to the skin's surface. This stimulates the person's immune response. The skin is the body's largest organ and it clears the body toxins quickly and efficiently because it has the richest circulation. Cups are either made of robust, rounded glass, plastic or bamboo.

A vacuum is created inside the cup by placing a flame for a very short period of time in the cup and then immediately placing the cup down over the selected area. Because the flame exhausts all the oxygen in the cup a vacuum is created and this has the effect of "drawing up" the skin beneath the cup. The effect of this is to encourage the flow of Qi and blood in the area beneath the cup. By moving the Qi and blood, local stagnation can be cleared.Cupping naturally draws blood to the external capillaries of the body and as a result minor weal or bruises may be left after a treatment.

What it is

How it works

Different from other forms of massage, which focus mainly on relieving tension in the muscles. The purpose of Gua Sha is to stimulate circulation and move “stagnant” blood. Relaxation of the muscles is a natural response to this movement.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, blood stagnation can cause a wide range of health-related issues, including pain, stiffness and inflammation. Allergies, infertility, arthritis and tendinitis are all examples of disorders which are related to stagnant blood.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

A Brief History

Chinese herbology has been traced back even farther than acupuncture. Over the past 5,000 years the study of herbs (includes plant, animal and mineral products) have been gathered, compiled, formulated and tested. This information was then handed down to the next generation. Today the herbologists that study Chinese Medicine still use this information to treat a variety of medical conditions.

The Chinese pharmacopeia is vast with over 1,800 individual herbs. Students learn over 400 of the most widely used herbs. These herbs are categorized according to their energetics (ie: temperature and taste), functions, the different channels/organs they go to and the disharmonies the herbs address. Individual herbs are compiled into a "formula" or "herbal tea" in accordance to the ailments of the patients. It is through the construction of these formulas that enhances the effects and safety of the individual herbs.

Herbal Formulas

What it is

How it works

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related and perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. A great way to continue to lower stress levels after acupuncture would be to get a massage.  There are many different types of massage. At Precision Point Wellness Dr. Drew Nystrom combines amalgamation of many different types of massage therapies: Energy work, Swedish, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Acupressure, Neuromuscular Techniques (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitative Stretching,  Reciprocal Inhibition, Positional Release and Direct applications) and Stretching. It will depend on your condition as to what style is best suited for you.

What it is

How it works

Tai Chi (pronounced Tie Chee) and Qi gong (pronounced chee-gung), is the study and practice of cultivating vital-life-force through various techniques, including: Breathing techniques, Postures, Meditations, & Guided imagery.

Qi means “breath” or “air” and is considered the “vital-life-force” or “life-force energy.”  Tai Chi and Qi gong practitioners believe that this vital-life-force penetrates and permeates everything in the universe; which, corresponds to the Greek “pneuma,” the Sanskrit “prana,” or the Western medical conception of “bioelectricity.” Gong means “work” or “effort” and is the commitment an individual puts into any practice or skill that requires time, patience, and repetition to perfect. Through study, the individual aims to develop the ability to manipulate Qi in order to promote self-healing, prevent disease, and increase longevity.

Tai Chi and Qi gong involves specific movements that may be strung together in a series of motions.
