Acupuncture is part of an ancient healing method that originated in China thousands of years ago known as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture is recognized for helping the mind, body and spirit maintain or even regain health and balance. With over 400 known Acu points located on the human body, a properly trained Acupuncturist can use a variety of these points to help remedy numerous health problems and conditions. Acupuncture is commonly known for its use of metal filiform (thread-like) needles and although these may be used in many treatments, needles are just one of the tools a skilled Acupuncturist may use to help with your case. Using Acupressure points and other tools, it is possible for a full treatment to be performed without the use of needles.
Cupping is part of an ancient healing method that originated in China thousands of years ago known as Traditional Chinese Medicine. By applying specially formed glass cups to the body, your Acupuncturist allows the body to be gently pulled into the glass and help increase circulation of blood, energy and lymphatic fluid. This ancient healing therapy is often used to aid in digestion, inflammation, immunity and a variety of aches and pains. This practice of healing is used by celebrities and professional athletes around the world to help them relax and recover from daily stressors. Many claim this therapy feels like a reverse deep tissue massage, instead of pushing deep into the muscles, the cups pull them out!
Gua Sha is part of an ancient healing method that originated in China thousands of years ago known as Traditional Chinese Medicine. Your Acupuncturist preforms Gua Sha with a specially formed tool that is used to purposefully create light bruising on the skin known as petechiae or in Chinese Medicine, “Sha”. This Sha is the visual effect of the scrapping performed on the skin to help the body release stagnations of blood which aids in pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting. Modern research shows the petechiae or Sha produce an anti inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment.
