Moxibustion and Infrared Light Therapy
An herb called mugwort is used to stimulate acupuncture points by inducing heat and infrared light into the tissue. Modern research notes that an Infrared light wave induced by burning the plant has been used to help increase white blood cells and platelet counts in patients. Today, Red light Heat Lamps are used as a substitute that provides the same effect.

Electro-stimulation (ES) is a treatment similar to dry needling or acupuncture where fine needles are placed in the affected tissue and are connected via cables to a small electro-stimulation unit. It can be used to treat acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. The electro-stimulation can oxidize the lactate acid into glucose for storage or be metabolized by working muscles. used in conjunction with Trigger point muscle release.
Scar Tissue Therapy
Scar tissue is formed by collagen. After an injury, your body lays down collagen that will become normal healthy tissue. The collagen cells are placed near the injured tissue in a random fashion, and this leads to scar tissue. (Normal healthy collagen is aligned in specific ways and directions that give your tissue strength.)
Scar tissue pulls skin and muscular tissue deeper inside in the form of a trench. Pressure is exerted on the connective tissue and surrounding viscera, causing the circulation of blood and lymph to lessen. Breaking up scar tissue encompasses Acupuncture, Massage Electro acupuncture, Red light therapy, and Cupping.
