Acupuncture

Acupuncture is offered in conjunction with all of the below modalities, depending on the treatment protocol for the issue being treated.  

 

Fire Cupping

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 blood flow and movement of qi, providing a variety of healing benefits.

Suction Cupping

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 for the amount of suction.  The benefits of suction cupping and fire cupping are almost identical.
