Auricular Therapy

acupuncture-treatment-for-newport-beach (Ear Acupuncture) is a healing practice dating back to the third century acupuncture treatments in newport beachwherein the practitioner uses needles at acupuncture points on the outer ear that correspond to specific parts of the human body. It is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient are effectively treatable by non-invasive stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively, including addictions, mood disorders, obesity, pain, and musculo-skeletal and central nervous system disorders. Using special adhesive dots, the practitioner attaches small and inconspicuous cowherb seeds to stimulate specific points on your outer ear. By pressing these ear seeds, you can stimulate your own acupuncture point for up to two weeks.


acupuncture services in newport beach (Chinese: 灸; pinyin: jiǔ) is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy using moxa made from dried mugwort (Artemisia argyi). Suppliers usually age the mugwort and grind it up to a fluff; practitioners burn the fluff or process it further into a cigar-shaped stick. Practitioners use moxa to warm regions and meridian points with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and qi. Some believe it can treat conditions associated with the “cold” or “yang deficiencies” in Chinese Medicine. acupuncture services in newport beachIt is claimed that moxibustion militates against cold and dampness in the body, and can serve to turn breech babies. Practitioners claim moxibustion to be especially effective in the treatment of chronic problems, “deficient conditions” (weakness), and gerontology. They can use it indirectly, with acupuncture needles, or burn it on the patient’s skin. There are several methods of moxibustion. Three of them are direct scarring, direct non-scarring, and indirect moxibustion. Direct scarring moxibustion places a small cone of moxa on the skin at an acupuncture point and burns it until the skin blisters, which then scars after it heals. Direct non-scarring moxibustion removes the burning moxa before the skin burns enough to scar, unless the burning moxa is left on the skin too long. Indirect moxibustion holds a cigar made of moxa near the acupuncture point to heat the skin, or holds it on an acupuncture needle inserted in the skin to heat the needle. There is also stick-on moxa.

Rapid Release Technology Rapid Release Therapy

(RRT) is a revolutionary breakthrough in therapeutic technology focused on relief of soft tissue problems affecting nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. RRT was designed from the ground up to target scar tissue adhesions with a specific frequency. In addition, this frequency is in a range that is known to relax muscle guarding or spasms. This lightweight, maneuverable Targeted High Speed Vibration device is unique and in its own class.
Scar Tissue forms in the body as a temporary patching mechanism for wounds caused by injury, surgery, newport beach acupuncture servicestrauma or repetitive stress. This scar tissue is made from collagen just like our skin but without blood supply it dries out, constricts and de-vitalizes. Scar tissue fastened to tissues not normally connected, is called an adhesion. Adhesions can cause pain, numbness or limit range of motion.

newport beach acupuncture servicesRRT relies upon the science of resonance. Like the piano note vibrating the corresponding guitar string across the room, the target acupuncture newport beachabsorbs vibrational energy and oscillates. Same principle as the opera singer who can vibrate a crystal glass across the room until it breaks. RRT operates at a frequency over 3 times faster than the fastest competition. Notice the symmetry of high speed compression waves through healthy tissue. Now notice the lack of waves when RRT is put over chronic fibrous tissue. The energy is absorbed by the denser tissue and it begins to vibrate.

Diagnosis Methods

Classical Pulse Diagnosis
newport beach acupuncture services
Energy moves from each of the 12 organs in your torso to specific positions on the radial artery, on the wrist below your thumb. The function and strength of each organ is evaluated by the quality and strength of the blood flow in those specific positions. The acupuncturist will place his/her fingers over the pulse on your wrist. A normal, healthy pulse has moderate speed and strength and feels just like blood [of course!].

It is not fast or slow.

It is not excessive [pushing the fingers off the pulse] or deficient [difficult to feel].

Most importantly, the pulse does not have a quality other than that of blood.

Normal and healthy blood is viscous; it’s thicker than water, but not as thick as motor oil, for example.

In Oriental Medicine, there are 28 pulse qualities. One is normal, and 27 indicate problems.

Classical Tongue Diagnosis
Tongue Diagnosis
newport beach acupuncturistThe organ functions, energy, and blood are reflected on the tongue. A normal, healthy tongue has four qualities:

1. The color is a lustrous, healthy red [not purple, bright red, pale, pink, etc.].
2. The coat is thin and white: it covers the tongue’s entire top surface [not clear, yellow, thick, etc.]
3. The size is average [not long or short].
4. The shape is round [without bumps, cracks, tooth-marks, depressions, pointedness, swelling, or anything else unusual].

If your tongue is not normal, it shows health problems exist in your body.

Tan’s Balance Method
Based on the traditional Chinese medicine theory – meridian theory, balance method, developed by Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan, is a series of acupuncture systems rooted in the concept of healing the body by balancing meridians.

(2) pain-like sensations, such as numbness, tingling, burning, aching, itching, and cramping on the affected meridians;

(3) internal diseases, such as nauseam asthma, IBS, insomnia, palpitation, sore throat, cough, diarrhea, menorrhagia, P.M.S., menopause, prostatitis and impotence;

(4) skin diseases, such as acne, rashes, boils, bumps, pustules, flaking and swelling.
