CHINESE MEDICINE & OTHER TECHNIQUES
If you’re like most of our readers, then you want to heal, to feel fully alive, and reach your full potential in life. You’re interested in finding effective solutions to things like depression, chronic pain, anxiety, fatigue, and stress.
Have you ever heard of "qi" or "chi"? It's your body's "vital energy". Think of qi as the natural flow of all your body’s systems — including the flow of blood, lymph, hormones, and information. Anything that impedes, messes with, or gets in the way of this flow also messes with your health.
Sugar, prescription drugs, non-prescription painkillers like Advil and Tylenol, gluten, diet soda, tomatoes and potatoes and cold foods, cell phones, pregnancy, lipstick and bad thoughts all mess with your qi and cause you to feel depressed, fatigued, stressed...bad.
We can help diagnose and unblock your qi...get things moving again and... get you feeling better. Watch the following video to see one of the diagnostics we use at the Wellness Center of Franklin.
Chinese & Alternative Medicine Success Stories
If you have an issue with chronic pain in a specific area of your body that just won't go away no matter what you do, here is an excellent treatment.
It's a procedure we offer called "cupping" and Dr. Allison has been using it for many decades with great success. The purpose of cupping is to draw "qi" or energy and blood flow into the area of interest.
Cupping originated in China many thousands of years ago. A glass jar would be used along with alcohol and a flame to create a vacuum with in the jar. Once the flame was lit the jar would quickly be placed on the skin creating a vacuum. (However modern methods do not require the use of an open flame.) The jar could then be left in position over certain acupuncture points or moved around creating a gentle massage with suction. The amount of suction can be adapted to the patient according to their sensitivity levels and is therefore painless.
