ETPS (Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation)
ETPS Microcurrent (Electro Therapeutic Point Stimulation) and MPT (Microcurrent Positional Tuina) are a quick and effective treatment modality used for patients with any type of musculoskeletal pain including, but not limited to: plantar fasciitis, neuromas, foot pain, TMJ, trigger finger, tennis elbow, any joint immobility/pain, arthritic pain, neck or other spine-related pain, post-operative pain, myofascial tightness and many other painful conditions including scar tissue and adhesions.
The ETPS unit is a handheld device powered by a 9-volt battery, which deeply releases tightness and tenderness in the soft tissues of the body and greatly enhances the effect of acupuncture and massage. Patients usually see immediate improvement in range of motion as well as a reduction in pain. It is a great alternative to acupuncture needles for sensitive or needle-phobic patients, as well as for children.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (FRA) is a relatively painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Although FRA is sometimes referred to as an acupuncture facelift, it is more than a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger. FRA treatments are based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine and involve the insertion of hair-thin needles into acupuncture points in specific areas of the face and body along the energetic meridians of the body to produce intended changes and to restore balance in the body. Microcurrent Therapy is also utilized in some circumstances to help reduce puffiness and to stimulate collagen production in the facial area. Practitioners of FRA know how to specifically affect the face while simultaneously treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process. Regular treatments may erase as many as five to fifteen years from the face. Anyone concerned with looking and feeling younger, and slowing down the aging process can benefit from FRA. Treatments are designed specifically for each individual according to their skin care needs.
