Asian meridian therapies are a group of traditional Eastern medicine techniques that aim to improve the flow of qi — or energy — in your body. Each technique relies on the meridian theory that your body has a series of meridians to connect every part of your body including your organs, joints, muscles, blood vessels, and skin.
When you’re sick or in pain, one or more meridians becomes blocked or inhibited, which causes symptoms. With Asian meridian therapies, Dr. Han carefully works to regulate your meridians through touch, pressure, and manual therapies in order to relieve your symptoms.
Dr. Han has advanced training in a variety of Asian meridian therapies including:
Dr. Han uses glass and plastic cups that suction onto your skin and create a vacuum to pull blood to the surface of your skin to relieve pain and discomfort.
Acupressure sessions involve the application of finger pressure to specific acupuncture points on your body.
Gua sha, pronounced “gwa shah,” involves the use of small handheld tools to carefully scrape the surface of your skin. Dr. Han applies gentle pressure when performing gua sha to increase blood flow and relax tense muscles.
Tui na, pronounced “twee naw,” means “pinching and pulling” in Chinese. Dr. Han uses his hands to apply pressure and stretching movements to your skin to relieve muscle tension.
Qi gong is a mind-body practice that involves breath work and a series of specific movements to calm the mind and relax the body. It’s similar to yoga and can be practiced while you’re standing or seated.
Based on your symptoms and diagnosis, Dr. Han develops a treatment plan incorporating Asian meridian therapies to help balance your meridians and allow energy to flow freely throughout your body.
Asian meridian therapies can be used on their own or in combination with other therapies, like chiropractic care, manual therapy, and physical therapy, to relieve pain and help with conditions like:
