Infrared Acupuncture – in Vancouver

by Serenity Aberdour, ND

New therapy available – Infrared Acupuncture

At a naturopathic conference a few weeks ago, I was introduced to a small hand held device from France that uses infrared heat to stimulate acupuncture points. This infrared treatment can be combined with acupuncture or used alone to help relieve conditions such as arthritis, frozen shoulder, back pain, menstrual pain, poor circulation and a variety of other conditions.

The deep, soothing heat produced by this new device simulates the effects of moxibustion, a traditional Chinese medicine treatment that involves heating acupuncture points using a burning stick of mugwort herb. Some of you may be familiar with moxibustion or “moxa” and may have experienced its benefits in the past. Although it is a wonderful therapy, you may also be familiar with the smoke and smell that moxibustion produces. This new infrared technology will allow me to offer the benefits of moxibustion without the smoke or the smell.

The technique of applying “moxa” to acupuncture points is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine and provides deep, therapeutic heat that is valuable in helping to relieve pain, improve circulation, relax muscle tension and increase the impact of acupuncture treatments.

I am happy to be able to offer this new and effective infrared acupuncture therapy at the Downtown Vancouver Electra Health Floor. If you would like more information about this new therapy, feel free to email me at doc@serenitynd.com or ask about it at your next appointment.
