Work With Rumiko
Acupuncture is a Chinese healing therapy that has been practiced for over 2000 years throughout Asia. In acupuncture very thin needles are inserted into specific points on the body’s surface in order to influence physiological functions of the body. Insertion and stimulation of the needles help restore and maintain the body’s natural healing ability.
Acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese theory that there is a universal life energy called Qi or Chi in every living creature. This energy is said to circulate throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. Qi flows freely through the meridians in a healthy body. When the flow of Qi is disrupted, it causes imbalance in the body and illness may occur.
Acupuncture points are believed to be located at specific locations where the meridians come to the surface of the skin and easily accessible by needles.
Cupping is a method of stimulating Acupuncture points or regions by applying suction through a metal, wood or glass jar, in which a partial vacuum has been created. This technique draws blood closer to the skin surface, stimulates the flow of blood, balances the flow of Qi and removes congestion. Cupping is used for low backache, sprains, soft tissue injuries, and helping relieve fluid from the lungs in chronic bronchitis.
Gua Sha is a healing technique widely used in Asia. Gua means to scrape or rub. Sha is a ‘reddish, elevated, millet-like skin rash’ (aka petechiae). Gua Sha is one technique that intentionally raises Sha rash or petechiae. It involves repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edge. Gua Sha is used for acute and chronic muscular pain disorders. In addition to resolving musculo skeletal pain, Gua Sha is used to treat as well as prevent common cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma, as well as any chronic disorder involving pain, congestion of Qi and Blood.
Moxibustion is a treatment method utilizing moxa, or mugwort. Moxa is burned over or on the acupuncture points or regions to induce a smoother flow of blood and Qi. Moxibustion is considered complimentary to Acupuncture. Moxibustion is used for ailments such as bronchial asthma, bronchitis, certain types of paralysis, and arthritic disorders.
