This winter quite a number of clients has turned to us because of their cough. Cough needs to be differentiated before treatment plan can be created. Depending on a type of cough, acupuncture points, needling and moxabustion techniques will be selected.
Generally speaking, the energy of the points will be either tonified, dispersed or sedated.
When the cough is strong and is associated with respiratory infection, mostly tonifying and sedating techniques will be used. When the cough is chronic, moxa therapy will be administered. If the cough is dry and irritating the throat, the points and the techniques of needling will be such that the sensation will irradiate to the trachea and the xiphoid process. Moxa therapy will be used as well. In case of the night cough, points will be warmed up with moxa. If the cough is a symptom of bronchitis, pneumonia, and other conditions, the treatment will be adjusted accordingly.
This is a small place of healing for a great NY, where we provide acupuncture, Chinese herbs, medical massage, physical therapy and Reiki therapy services.
Thank you for stepping by and may you always be healthy.
