Acupuncture is only one part of an entire system of medicine that evolved more than 3000 years ago in China. It was discovered that inserting fine needles into specific points on the body stimulated the body’s innate ability to heal itself. While acupuncture techniques have been refined over the centuries, the essential theory behind the practice has remained intact. We use only single use, sterile, disposable needles.

The medicinal benefits of herbs has been known for centuries. Using natural materials, such as bark, roots, leaves and minerals, herbs can strengthen the body and remove toxins.

Electrical Simulation involves the use of a machine which provides gentle electric current to the acupuncture points. It is often used in the treatment of women’s health, pain or paralysis, and neurological conditions.
Auricular acupuncture is the placement of needles in the ear. In Chinese medicine, the ear is mapped according to an embryo; meaning that we can address conditions occurring in the body by stimulating specific points in the ear. Auricular acupuncture is often employed for treating mood, addictive tendencies and pain management.
Cupping is an ancient therapy which has been shown to reduce tension, improve blood flow and circulation, decrease inflammation and help calm the nervous system. A Cupping session involve the use of glass, silicone or plastic cups placed on the body using suction and negative pressure. The pull created by the suction is said to help activate the body’s Qi, moving stagnant energy and removing pathogens.
Talk with your acupuncturist if you are interested in utilizing cupping in your holistic health treatment.
