Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny, sterile needles into various parts of the body in order to alleviate pain, and promote healing and relaxation. It is customized and tailored to your specific needs. For more information about acupuncture, click here. Your acupuncture session may also include cupping and/or other modalities appropriate to address your health concerns.
Cupping involves the placement of glass or plastic cups on the surface of the skin using suction (achieved via pump, not traditional fire method). Cupping improves circulation, benefits the lungs and respiratory system, and combats pain. It may be used either on its own or in combination with acupuncture, and is often reported by patients as feeling similar to a deep-tissue massage. Expect some painless discoloration on the skin.
Acupuncture Organ Detox
This restorative treatment begins with a customized acupuncture treatment that targets the digestive system, and the placement of a warming castor oil treatment pack over the abdomen. The treatment ends with an Ampuku style abdominal massage. This unique treatment serves to regulate the digestive system, enhance organ function, and relax both body and mind.
This hybrid treatment uses a blend of acupuncture and massage in order to address your health concerns while also promoting deep relaxation. Needling is followed by relaxing massage, which will compliment the effects of the acupuncture treatment and leave you calm and balanced.
Auriculotherapy is often incorporated into acupuncture sessions and consists of acupuncture or acupressure applied to the exterior surface of the ear. The ear represents a microcosm of the body and as a result, treatment of the ear is able to create systemic change. Often, auriculotherapy includes the use of tiny, stainless steel "pressballs" that are taped to the surface of the ear in order to provide continuous acupressure stimulation to pressure points for several days following treatment.
Moxibustion is a heat therapy that may be incorporated into acupuncture sessions and consists of the burning of an herb, Artemesius vulgaris, above various parts of the body and specific acupuncture points. Moxibustion serves to enhance the immune system, promote circulation, and promote the smooth flow of qi and blood throughout the body. It is particularly helpful (and safe) in the treatment of breech presentation in pregnancy.
