The goal of UC Health Integrative Medicine is to help the whole person achieve overall wellness. Acupuncture sessions encourage the body to naturally heal itself by rebalancing qi, the life force that enlivens body, mind and spirit.

Fine needles are placed in points to restore balance and nourish the essential functions of the organs. Research has shown it to be helpful for many conditions, including pain syndromes, cancer treatment-related side effects, gastrointestinal disorders, addictions and headaches.

Acupuncture Therapy sessions are held weekly on Tuesdays from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. and Thursdays from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sessions are held in the UC Health Physicians Office South, 4th Floor, and are conducted by Martyn Thomas, a licensed acupuncturist.

Acupuncture Therapy sessions are by appointment only. Please contact us at (513) 475-9567 to schedule.

Treatments

Chinese and Japanese Acupuncture

The placing of very thin needles in specially located points along the meridians of the body to improve the flow of qi and create balance. Chinese acupuncture uses pulse and tongue examination as means of diagnosis. Japanese acupuncture also uses pulse and tongue examination for diagnosis but mainly relies on palpation of acupuncture channels and reflexes for diagnosing.

Moxibustion

Called moxa for short, a heat treatment of tightly compressed herbs, placed either directly or indirectly on targeted acupuncture points.

Infrared Emitter

Equivalent to the emission of a burning moxa, without smoke, ash, and odor.

Cupping

Specially designed cups placed on the body with a suction method, used to pull stagnant qi or chi and blood from an area.

Hot Rocks

Heated salt stones used for pain relief and relaxation, placed in areas of muscular tightness.
