Fire Cupping :

This modality uses round glass cups and a flaming cotton ball. The cotton ball is inserted into the glass cup and quickly removed as the cup is placed over the skin forming a vacuum. The goal is to move qi and blood, dispel cold damp, and diminish swellings and pains. Red areas will typically show after a cupping treatment and are normal. These will disappear in just a few days.

Moxabustion :

The wool of Artemisia Vulgaris has been used from ancient times to supplement the yang qi of the body, warm the meridians, expel cold, and prevent diseases. Moxa wool is formed on the end of an inserted needle to warm the needle or it can be placed on a herbal base. Ginger, monkshood, salt or garlic are popular bases for treatment with moxabustion.

Infrared Therapy (IRT) :

Infrared therapy (IRT) uses a special electro-magnetic therapeutic apparatus known as a TDP Health Lamp. TDP stands for Special Electro-magnetic Therapeutic in Chinese. This healing device is also known as a Far Infrared Mineral Therapy Lamp.
IRT provides deep heat to relax muscles, decrease pain, improve blood and lymphatic circulation, promote oxygenation and nutrient delivery to injured tissues, detoxify, promote cellular metabolism, regulate physiological deficiency, diminish inflammation, and promote healing. It is often utilized in treating conditions such as arthritis, cramps, strains and sprains, carpal tunnel syndrome, disk problems, acne, eczema, dermatitis, herpes zoster, psoriasis, Crohn's Disease, diarrhea, internal and external wound healing, and for soft tissue and bone injuries. Other applications for this device include heel spurs, plantar fasciitis and many other conditions.

"I appreciate Ron's dedication, passion and ingenuity in the field of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine. He has developed successful bee venom therapies for difficult cases of arthritis and stroke patients, grows and harvests Chinese herbal plants that he later turns into medicated plasters for patients, and applies his background in martial arts to his acupuncture style. Ron has immersed himself wholeheartedly in a life of Chinese Medicine, and is committed to sharing the benefits of his endeavors with his patients."
