Your health is dependent on the smooth flow of energy throughout your body. When that flow is blocked, you become ill.
Acupuncture, which has been practiced in China for more than 3000 years, can open your energy channels to promote your body’s natural painkillers and immune system function.
During your treatment a series of slender, flexible needles are inserted along key points to encourage normal flow. These needles are sterilized and disposable so they are never reused.
Unlike hypodermic needles, this insertion is nearly painless and you will leave feeling a sense of deep relaxation and well- being. Your treatment will take up to an hour.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
The medicinal properties of over ten thousand herbal substances have been well documented, and Western pharmacology is embracing their effectiveness today. All herbs are natural rather than manufactured, and when specifically combined for your individual needs will bring you gentle and safe relief from a variety of symptoms. I will design and modify your herbal prescription based on your individual and changing needs. I carry the only line of USDA organic certified Chinese Herbs on the market.
We all know there is no “magic pill” to give us health and well-being. We also know the old adage “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”
More and more of today’s physicians are combining modern medical procedures with ancient Chinese medicine to improve health. Notably Duke University has launched its “Center for Integrative Medicine” to combine mainstream Western medicinal practices with Traditional Chinese Therapies including Acupuncture and Herbal Formulas.
But you don’t have to travel to China or the east coast to reap these rewards. The healing hands of Valerie Ducos can treat you right here in Southern California.
Cupping therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. The Chinese have been doing this since ancient times by using heat inside glass or bamboo cups. Nowadays, cupping sets use suction to create the vacuum. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area and help the healing in that area.
