Acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that involves the insertion of hair-thin single use needles into specific points on the body. These acupuncture points are found along different pathways, or “meridians” on the body. The practitioner gently inserts needles along these points, stimulating and accessing the patient’s “qi” or energy. When the body is in pain or out of balance, due to stress, physical or emotional trauma, and/or injury, the smooth flow of energy is believed to be blocked. Acupuncture aims to clear these obstructions in the body by restoring the smooth flow of qi. It is believed that once a patient’s smooth flow of qi is restored, their body becomes healthy. Heat, manipulation or electrical stimulation may also be added to an acupuncture treatment to enhance the effectiveness of the needles.
Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture - uses the microsystem of the ear which links to all the energetic pathways, organs and parts of the body. This type of therapy has been very effective in patients with drug and alcohol addictions. Ear seed therapy is also very effective in reducing stress and anxiety, blocking pain receptors naturally without the side effects of pharmaceuticals and is another alternative to acupuncture.
Cupping involves quickly inserting fire into a glass cup to remove oxygen creating a vacuum and then the practitioner places the cup on the patient. Cups may either be placed stationary or the practitioner will run the cups along the affected area being treated.
Cupping breaks up stagnation, strengthen blood flow, moves Qi, and pulls out toxins from the body.
