Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that has developed over thousands of years and is used to treat any imbalance that may arise in one's internal environment. Coupled with the newly developed diagnostic techniques of the West, this integrative approach has created a powerful tool to aid people in healing, recovery and prevention of future ailments.
Acupuncture is a powerful adjunct to surgery. Studies show that those who are treated with acupuncture post surgery have faster recovery times and are less prone to re-injury. Acupuncture works with the bodies nervous system, and aids in lowering inflammation and increasing blood flow to needed areas: This translates to less pain and faster recovery.
Arrangements can be made to meet patients in the hospital as they recover from surgery. Acupuncture is also a great way to help people who suffer the effects of radiation therapy from cancer treatments. While we cannot be your primary care cancer physician, we can help you recover from radiation therapy: Helping to increase appetite, and lower nausea and general malaise.
Postural therapy is a medical approach to yoga. The aim is to use certain postures to improve mobility and increase strength. Our postural therapy protocol is used to help people recover from traumatic injuries and also for those who simply want to increase their strength and flexibility.
Back pain is one of the most common reasons people visit the doctor. Come in and witness how effective acupuncture is at relieving this commonly occurring ailment.
SPORTS MEDICINE AND REHABILITATION
Our founder, Kevin Craft, has been an avid surfer and skateboarder for more than 30 years. He knows about pain and how to get athletes back into the game. Many of Kevin's friends are athletes who come to him in their time of need; especially when they need to perform and recover quickly.
Life is a sport and you don't need to be an athlete to benefit from pain management. Sometimes we can sustain injury just reaching for the salt shaker. Pain is pain whether you are an athlete, computer programmer, house wife/husband, gamer or whoever, we can all have less pain.
Often people come to us, frustrated that their surgery didn't give the desired result. They seek acupuncture as a last resort, but after being treated they wish they'd come before receiving surgery. If you are thinking of any of the following surgeries, come try a few treatments before going under the knife.
- knee surgery (ACL, MCL)
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- epidural for low back pain
- shoulder or ankle surgery
- spinal surgery
CHINESE MEDICAL MASSAGE (TUINA)
At Craft Acupuncture we perform Tuina or Chinese Medical Massage on most of our patients. This healing art form is the forefather of modern day chiropractic. Unlike a chiropractor, we do not manipulate bones, but use touch and intention to aid the acupuncture treatment. This ancient, non-invasive manual therapy technique augments the healing process for musculoskeletal ailments.
It is not always wise to see a physician only when injured. In order to practice preventative medicine, it is important to eat right, exercise and come in for treatments for maintenance and general well-being. This approach will add to your longevity and prevent you from having more injuries.
It is recommended that you begin a wellness regiment that includes acupuncture, tuina, and yoga; Craft Acupuncture can help guide you on your road to finding a healthy balance.
