Thermal Imaging

We are excited to be utilizing FLIR thermal imaging, a new technological diagnostic device, at Colorado Restorative Acupuncture. We have a thermal camera that only picks up the infrared spectrum, an electromagnetic wavelength that is not visible to the naked eye, but can be felt as heat. This camera can detect and document both excessive and deficient blood supply to muscle tissues and skin. It allows us to see the location and extensiveness of inflammation, with both acute and chronic injuries, as well as the ability to compare these images before and after acupuncture and cupping treatments. This has become a very useful piece of equipment to observe the tremendous effects these therapies have on circulation and inflammation, using objective findings.
