Harborside Healthcare offers a variety of medical services. Michele's focus is on East Asian Medicine, which includes the services listed below.
Acupuncture - a system of complementary medicine that involves pricking the skin with fine needles to alleviate pain and treat various physical, mental and emotional conditions. Current research is indicating that connective tissue and fascia form the Meridian pathway. Stimulation of this pathway can increase blood flow, decrease inflammation and modify pain signals sent to the brain.
NeuroKinetic Therapy (NKT) - a manual therapy combining motor control theory and muscle testing. This bodywork modality can be used as both an assessment and rehabilitative technique for musculoskeletal pain.
Gua Sha - a traditional treatment in which the skin is 'scraped' with a round-edged instrument to stimulate blood flow and promote healing.
Cupping - using a glass, silicone or plastic cup to create a vacuum on the patient's skin. Cups are placed at specific sites or massaged along Meridians to help relax muscles and increase circulation.
Nutritional Counseling - using the Chinese nutritional model to help patients improve their digestion and immune system with food and herbs. Dietary counseling is also an effective means of helping patients with anxiety related digestive issues.
Electro-acupuncture - acupuncture using a mild electrical current between points. This is used primarily for musculo-skeletal pain.
Tui-Na Massage- Chinese therapeutic massage using a 'push and grasp' motion along Meridians or at specific sites.
Moxibustion Therapy- a system of burning dried mugwort (moxa) on particular points or along Meridians to heat the tissue.
