The three main objectives of Acupuncture treatments are pain relief, strengthening the immune system, and promoting the balance, harmony and integration of the functions of all bodily organs. An acupuncture treatment considers all aspects of the human body, physical ailments, the emotional state of the patient, the individual spirit and the sort of lifestyle that the patient chooses to lead.
Biomat Far Infrared Therapy
The Biomat is an FDA licensed medical device which lays on top of the treatment table like a heating pad. In addition to heat, this device combines high quality amethyst stones with the deeply relaxing component of negative ions, making the far-infrared treatment a trilogy of unique healing power with many benefits beyond a typical far infrared sauna. The negative ions generated by the Biomat stimulate serotonin and enter the body through conduction. Use as an add-on before or after your session or as a stand alone treatment.
