Graston Technique

Graston Technique is successful in effectively treating all soft tissue conditions, whether they are chronic, acute and even post surgical. The Graston Technique offers many advantages to the patient such as:

  • Decreases overall time of treatment
  • Fosters faster rehabilitation/recovery

Changing the way soft tissue injuries are treated

Graston Technique is an innovative, patented form of instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. The technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis or chronic inflammation.

Originally developed by athletes, Graston Technique is an interdisciplinary treatment used by more than 9,000 clinicians worldwide—including physical and occupational therapists, hand therapists, chiropractors, and athletic trainers.

GT is utilized at some 830 outpatient facilities and industrial on-sites, by more than 160 professional and amateur sports organizations, and is part of the curriculum at 38 respected colleges and universities.

 

Cold and Flu Symptoms? Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs Can Help!

Sneezing, headaches, runny, stuffy noses, sore throats and coughs can sure put you in a bad mood!  The common cold is caused by a virus and antibiotics are ineffective for these types of infections.

So what do you do?  Most people either tough it through the misery or reach for over the counter remedies at the local drug store.

Medications, even if they are over the counter, come with potential harmful side effects.

Did you know that Chinese herbal medicines can help with these symptoms with fewer negative side effects?
These formulations  are made of substances from the Earth, they are natural and effective options for managing those pesky symptoms from your cold.  They are even helpful for allergy symptoms!

Alone or with acupuncture treatment by your Newport Beach acupuncturist, properly prescribed herbal formulas can help you get through the season feeling great!

*It is important to only take herbal prescriptions prescribed by a qualified health care professional. Just because something is natural doesn't mean it isn't potent and potentially harmful if taken inappropriately.

Cold and Flu Season is Upon Us!

Are supplements really going to help me?  Vitamins, and for that matter, all supplements are an area of controversy among some groups.  Some people swear by them, while others would argue that all you get with supplements is expensive urine.  So who's right?  The jury is still out on whether whole foods versus supplements are the absolute best ways to get your daily allowances.

One thing is for sure, though.  Most people aren't eating a perfectly balanced diet.  Are you? If you aren't sure, it is a good idea to add a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement.  Adequate vitamin and mineral balance will help your body maintain your immune system and proper inflammatory responses.

One way to test how well absorbed your vitamin is, place one pill in a cup with vinegar and leave overnight.  If it is not dissolved by the morning, chances are you are paying for expensive urine! (Sorry!)
