Cosmetic Acupunture

Those looking to erase the years without surgery or drugs can experience what the Chinese Empresses and Emperors did nearly 2000 years ago. Facial rejuvenation rebalances energy and reduces wrinkles, fine lines, puffiness and other signs of aging through acupuncture and Chinese medicine. Hair-thin filaments are applied to pressure points on the body and a single visit can lift drooping eyes, tighten pores and increase collagen production. Treatments are simple, virtually pain-free and require no incisions, which means no down time. Facial rejuvenation provides lasting, natural-looking results that will bring out your innate beauty and radiance.

Cupping

Cupping refers to an ancient Chinese practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup. In some cases, the cup may be moved while the suction of skin is active, causing a regional pulling of the skin and muscle (the technique is called gliding cupping).
Cupping is an excellent adjunct therapy for treatments of respiratory diseases such as common cold, pneumonia, and bronchitis. Cupping is also used to treat back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal pain, digestion, gynecological concerns, paralysis and stroke. Mr. Cutler has been teaching Cupping Techniques for over 15 years.

Weight Loss & Cleansing

We’ve all heard it before: to lose weight, your body must burn stored fat. Yet despite counting calories and exercising regularly, many still can’t shed the pounds. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 66% of adult Americans are overweight, and while the majority of them probably want to trim down, most are losing the battle of the bulge. That could be because they’re not armed with the right weapons. You see, they’re not just fighting fat. New research reveals the true culprit behind the weight loss struggle – hormones – fat burning hormones.
The Advanced Healthcare Solutions program addresses these questions and has proven very successful – especially for those who have a stubborn metabolism. The principles utilized give patients effective leverage over weight loss because they address the very things that control weight loss – fat burning hormones. Hormones control metabolism, and once these hormones are working for them instead of against them, patients have success. There are six fat-burning hormones, and each is triggered by a different series of events. Wouldn’t it make sense to know what these events are and how to trigger them?

Gua Sha

Gua Sha (pronounced “Gwa-Sha”) is one of the oldest components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Gua, in Chinese, means “friction” or “to rub.” Sha means “sand.” In total, Gua Sha treats congestion of blood at the surface of the body by using a specialized tool that is gently rubbed over the problem area. What conditions does Gua Sha treat? This practice is used to release muscle tension, tightness and constriction. If the muscles are ischemic, then nourishment cannot flow into them and waste products cannot flow out. For example, Gua Sha removes lactic acid from overused muscles, accidents, stress, tension and trauma and also promotes normal circulation to the muscles, tissues and organs directly below the surface being treated.

Holistic Therapies

Holistic is a term used to describe therapies that attempt to treat the patient as a whole person. That is, instead of just treating symptoms of an illness, as in orthodox allopathy, holistic approaches look at an individual’s over-all physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being before recommending treatment. A practitioner with a holistic approach treats the symptoms of illness as well as looking for the underlying cause. Holistic therapy also attempts to prevent illness by placing a greater emphasis on optimizing health. The body’s systems are seen as interdependent parts of the person’s whole being. Its natural state is one of health, and an illness or disease is an imbalance in the body’s systems. Holistic therapies tend to emphasize proper nutrition and avoidance of substances-such as chemicals-that pollute the body. The techniques used to reach optimum health are non-invasive.

Nutritional Counseling

Diet and nutrition have a profound influence on our daily lives. Our fast food culture has robbed us of our daily nourishment in many ways. If you think of food as energy it may help you understand the critical role it plays in our health and well being. Everything we put into our bodies works with other energetic influences such as emotional and physical occurrences. Together these factors have an effect on the balance of our bodies, or homeostasis. Good nutrition must encompass not only the fruits and vegetables in nutrition but the quality of all ingredients and even the manner in which we eat. Remember, food is the fuel that helps run our bodies. Bad food choices will make our engines run poorly like putting bad gas in your car.

Saliva Hormone Test

What is saliva hormone testing? Saliva testing is an extremely reliable, non-invasive way to measure hormone activity and imbalances that may be causing fatigue, hot flashes, stress, mood swings, sleep disturbances and other health problems.
How does saliva hormone testing work? Saliva testing is a painless, needle-free process. And unlike urine or blood testing, saliva provides information about hormone activity at the cellular level which ensures the most accurate diagnosis to help restore your health quickly and effectively. Saliva measures the “free” bio-available (unbound) hormone levels, which can reflect more accurately a deficiency state and the therapeutic response. Depending on one’s presenting health problem a variety of hormone panels/profiles can be selected specifically for the patient. A full lab report is included with each returned test and a comprehensive follow up consultation is also a part of this lab-test.
