Acupuncture is offered in conjunction with all of the below modalities, depending on the treatment protocol for the issue being treated.
The inside of glass cups are lit with fire to create a vacuum. The cups are placed on various areas of the body to promote increased circulation and movement of qi, providing a variety of healing benefits.
Medical grade plastic cups create a vacuum through the use of a hand pump. This type of cupping is used when more precise control is needed on the amount of suction. The benefits of suction cupping and fire cupping are almost identical.
Guasha is the scraping of the skin to release unhealthy elements from the scraped areas and stimulate blood flow and healing.
Moxibustion is the burning of a specific aged plant over acupuncture points. It can be used in conjunction with acupuncture or completely separately.
