Acupuncture is an ancient form of Traditional Medicine using fine or hairlike needles to stimulate points along the meridian(s) affected. Meridians run through the human body where our vital energy or “Qi” circulates through each meridian. Any blockages, imbalances results in pain, dysfunction, and illness. Acupuncture helps restore balance and harmony to the flow within your body. This sets the foundation for the body to start healing itself.
Often combined with acupuncture, cups are placed strategically on your body and pressure is created to keep the cups in place anywhere from a few minutes or longer depending on your condition. There are several cupping techniques to help treat a variety of conditions as well. Cupping helps improve blood flow and circulation to the area by bringing fresh blood to the surface and pushing old blood or toxins to the lymphatic system reducing pain and discomfort. Cupping can also help expel “pathogens” at the first sign of sickness such as the common cold/flus.
Herbal formulas are used effectively in combination with acupuncture. It is effective in nourishing your body when you are deficient or expelling any excess to harmonize and balance your overall well being.
