Centuries old technique of using very fine needles inserted along the acupuncture meridians or pathways to manipulate energy flow in the body to improve health, stop pain, and impart a feeling of well being. Acupuncture is effectively used
to treat a wide range of symptoms, illnesses, and injuries.
Cupping- Use of suction created in a glass or plastic cup to increase circulation and draw out stagnation. Great way to address pain & muscular tension.
Gua Sha- Painless scraping of the skin with a smooth instrument (usually a piece of Jade) to draw out stagnation. Similar therapeutics as cupping therapy.
Therapeutic heat created by using an herb called 'Mugwort,' which is ignited and held over specific acupuncture points or areas of the body. Great for arthritis and painful injuries such as tendonitis, bursitis, and muscular strains. Effects are often immediate, and most people find the treatment very pleasant.
Low voltage electricity used to stimulate acupuncture points that's often used in pain syndromes or to enhance treatment effects. TENS units (without the addition of needles) are the devices that are very commonly used in outpatient physical therapy settings.
