Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing response by utilizing disposable, sterile, hair-thin needles to access Qi (pronounced “Chee” also known as “life force” or “air”). There are over 360 points on the body and each point (“acupoint”) has a specific purpose. The acupoints redirect Qi through the insertion of needles at specific points. This is a chemical-free, safe & effective way to increase the circulation in your body and reduce harmful inflammation.
Cupping is the ancient practice in which a heated cup is applied to the skin to create a gentle suction. This suction helps to release any bound fascia that is causing pain, stiffness, toxic build up or limited range of motion. The cupping works by gently pulling the skin up to stimulate the lymphatic system. This brings in fresh oxygen and blood to the site and carries away stagnant or damaged blood to speed up the healing process.
Tui Na massage seeks to harmonize the flow of Qi through massage and manual manipulation techniques through the meridians. This therapy allows the body to heal itself by improving circulation, releasing bound tension and easing pain.
