Peter Schell Acupuncture and Herbs - Relieve Release Mobilize through Chinese Acupuncture and Herbology
OFFICE HOURS: Wednesday-Sunday - by appointment only

TREATMENT MODALITIES:

Chinese Medicine
In my practice I use various methods of moving the Qi and blood of the body 
that help promote healing and alleviate pain.  To paraphrase one of the tenets of Chinese medicine, "Where things do not move, there is pain, where things move, there is no pain."  This applies to the physical body as well as to the mind.
Acupuncture
Thin needles are inserted into the skin at traditional points chosen for their ability 
to effect balance in the energetic flow of the body.
Tui Na
Chinese Medical Massage is used to move stagnation and patterns of holding 
in the musculoskeletal system, and to facilitate ease of movement. It can also 
be used, with good effect, for internal conditions.
Chinese Herbology
Chinese herbs are primarily used in traditional formulas that correspond to specific patterns of disharmony in the body. They are individually modified based on how 
the patient manifests that disharmony.
Cupping
Glass cups are applied with suction, pulling the skin and muscle, which moves 
and alleviates deep stagnation, swelling and pain.
Gua Sha
The rounded edge of a ceramic spoon is used to create abrasion on the skin 
to move superficial stagnation, swelling and pain.

You don't need an understanding of Chinese medicine to have a successful treatment, and you don't need to choose a modality. I make a thorough assessment of each patient and work with them to select a treatment or combination of treatments that are appropriate to each individual's situation and comfort level.
