Acupuncture

Acupuncture has helped millions of people over the past 3,000 years by activating the natural self-healing abilities of the body. Small, sterile, disposable needles are gently inserted into  specific acupuncture points to encourage the free flow of Qi (chi), or vital energy, that flows through pathways in the body. When the flow of Qi is obstructed, pain, illness, and other ailments occur. When the Qi flows properly the body is nourished and healthy.

Cupping with Acupuncture

Cupping

Cupping is a technique that uses glass or plastic cups to create suction on the skin. When the cups are gently moved they release adhesions between the layers of skin, fascia and muscle which relaxes the muscles, increases blood circulation and the movement of Qi. You can think of it as a reverse deep tissue massage. Some redness and bruising may occur and this indicates that toxins have been drawn out of the area to be flushed from the system. Cupping is very effective for pain, injury, tension and stagnation. Clients report feeling looser, calmer, lighter and more balanced. An excellent 15 minute add-on to your acupuncture treatment.

Massage

A combination of hot stone, deep tissue and myofascial massage can all be added to the end of your acupuncture treatment, synergistically boosting the overall effect of pain and stress reduction. A relieving, relaxing and grounding 15 minute add-on to your session.
