Acupuncture: It’s Not Only About Needles

In case you have not had the opportunity to experience a treatment with Dr. Angel yet, I wanted share just a couple of the ways that she is very unique.

Since she was a General Practitioner MD in Colombia, she treats each of her patient’s health issue with a very medical approach including a comprehensive treatment plan.

Also, she utilizes a variety of modalities including moxa, cupping, and electric stimulation.   I though you would appreciate a brief summary:

Moxa – is used by Acupuncturists to warm regions and meridian points with the intention of stimulating circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and chi.  Practitioners find it to be especially effective in the treatment of chronic problems, and believe that it can add new energy to the body and could treat both excess and weakness.

Cupping Therapy – is an ancient form of treatment in which a local suction is created on the skin and practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.

Electric Stim – an electric current is applied to the needles once they are inserted in order to further stimulate the respective acupuncture points.

Remember that all of Dr. Angel’s treatments are only $75 regardless of what modalities she employs. And all Kuma patients receive their initial evaluation (value $50) absolutely FREE!
