Treatments & Services
Acupuncture goes far beyond needles. Avalon offers traditional treatment along with a wide array of alternatives, all with the goal of making you feel your best.
Orthopedic & Medical Sports Acupuncture
We understand that performance, especially at the professional level, is dynamic and it needs continual maintenance. We use orthopedic testing, trigger point therapy, manual tissue release and motor point therapy to help athletes recover from injuries. Whether professional or weekend warrior, this helps reduce recovery time and prevent injury.
Acupuncture is one part of traditional Chinese Medicine that has been around for thousands of years. Its use and treatment protocols have been documented for more than 2,000 years. More and more, it is becoming combined with western medicine practices to provide an integrated approach. This is the standpoint from which we treat patients.
Cupping is the attachment of glass or plastic cups for suction onto the surface of the skin to stimulate blood flow, dispel pain, break up obstructions, and release toxins. At Avalon, we almost exclusively use glass cupping with a sliding method.
Electro Acupuncture (EA) uses the same points as acupuncture, and operates on a similar principle. The difference is that the needles are attached to a device that sends electrical currents or pulses into the body. This is not painful; rather it's a mild sensation and is quite therapeutic.
