WHAT WE OFFER
Acupuncture is a traditional medical practice that originated in China over 2,000 years ago. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body called meridians, stimulating various physiological and therapeutic effects. Acupuncture moves any stagnate energy "qi" promoting our bodies back into a state of homeostasis. Acupuncture effects the central nervous system, thus activating the body's natural healing process. Our bodies are amazingly intelligent and know what to do if given the proper environment. For this reason, Acupuncture is quickly becoming many's first line of defense in addressing their health.
Fire Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese healing modality that involves the use of glass or bamboo cups placed on the skin to create suction. This modality is often used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for centuries in various cultures around the world. Acupuncturists often use Cupping Therapy in their sessions to address many different issues. Some of the benefits include pain relief, improved circulation, relaxation and stress reduction, detoxification, clear congestion, allergies, improvement of skin conditions, faster recovery for athletes, clearing internal heat, and balancing overall energy flow
Electroacupuncture includes small electrodes being attached to specific inserted needles. This allows controlled electrical currents to flow through the needles, which can be adjusted to specific frequency and intensity. The electrical stimulation is used to enhance the therapeutic effect of Acupuncture and is often used for conditions that may not respond as effectively to traditional Acupuncture alone. Benefits include pain relief, improved muscle relaxation, and is often used for chronic conditions, neurological disorders, and muscle spasms.
Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese healing modality that involves scraping of the skin’s surface with a smooth-edged tool to promote circulation and relieve stagnation.
