Acupuncture & Cupping

Acupuncture is a practice of inserting needles into various points throughout the body. It is a practice based in China that began over 2,000 years ago. It has been known to prevent, diagnose and treat disease, as well as promote overall well-being. The points used are located on  channels known as meridians, and these meridians govern the flow of energy (known as qi) throughout the body.

Therapeutic cupping is a therapy using cups and a suction; the cups are placed all over the body (depending on the area of focus), and the suction is used to create a negative pressure between the skin and the cup. The suction created can encourage blood flow, sedate the nervous system, movement of toxins, loosen muscles and create movement.
