Many people who have visited Chiren Therapy Centre have exclaimed "I've had acupuncture before but I've never experienced anything like this level of relief". Approximately 80% of Dr. Ramirez's patients experience a significant reduction in their symptoms after the first or second visit. An accurate diagnosis of the root cause of the problem plays a large part in achieving this success rate. The AcuGraph® system takes a reading of the patient's energy by measuring the Qi of each meridian. It conducts a graphical analysis and interpretation of each patient's meridian energetics and displays this for us to see and read. The advantage of using AcuGraph® is that it is evidence based acupuncture documentation and gives an accurate picture of what is going on within the meridian system of the body. You, the patient, can clearly see the location of the problems that are causing the symptoms of illness.
Very fine acupuncture needles are placed in a set of specific acupuncture points, in order to re-establish the free flow and harmony of Qi in the body. The energy is manipulated by stimulating the needle according to the treatment required. Neurotransmitters are released which encourages the body to heal itself and return to its natural state of good health. Heat therapy is used when necessary to promote the action of the needles.
A treatment plan may be indicated according to the results of the test and on subsequent appointments the test is taken again in order to map your progress.
Auricular (ear) acupuncture is a very effective treatment for pain relief. Cosmetic acupuncture, particularly for reducing signs of aging on facial skin, is also available at the clinic.
Chiren Therapy Centre has an extensive herbal pharmacy; in combination with the AcuGraph® reading and acupuncture treatment, a specific herbal formula can be made up for you in order to further enhance treatment and restore health.
