Sarah generally practices a hybrid of Chinese and Japanese style acupuncture unless the patient or condition requires a single style.
Chinese Style: Uses pulse and tongue as diagnostics. Needles are about the diameter of a strand of hair. May include gentle manipulation of the needles.
Japanese Style: Uses pulse and abdominal palpation as diagnostics. Uses even thinner needles. Very gentle needle insertion with no manipulation. Often includes non-insertive techniques such as pressballs, presstacks, and magnets.
Chinese Herbal Medicine:
Formulas are created using medicinal plants and mineral products to treat conditions and promote health. Formulas can be taken in patent (pill) form or powdered formulas designed for the individual.
A therapeutic technique that uses special suction cups to reduce tension in the muscles and thereby promote healing.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture:
Acupuncture that focuses on rejuvenating the facial skin, reducing fine lines and wrinkles to promote healthier, younger looking skin. Requires a series of treatments.
Medical Qigong/ Taoist Energy Healing:
Medical Qigong is based on Taoist principles of energy and intention, and uses the knowledge and discipline of Chinese medical theory to direct energy in an efficient and effective manner. The practitioner is trained to sense where blockages/deficiencies are located and heal by acting as a conduit for energy, sending the energy to the specific areas that need it. Medical Qigong can be done in person or long distance and is generally incorporated into Sarah's acupuncture treatments.
Tong Ren Energy Healing:
Tong Ren energy healing is a non-insertive energy therapy based on using the collective unconscious, as defined by Dr. Carl Jung, to remove energy blockages causing disease. Created by Master Tom Tam, of Quincy MA, this method is based on over 20years of his clinical practice and research and is currently being studied by Dana Farber/Harvard Medical Center. It is often used in treating difficult cases of cancer, MS, Parkinson's, etc. Tong Ren can be incorporated into Sarah's acupuncture treatments, and can also be done long distance/over the phone if desired.
