Acupuncture is performed by using very thin disposable needles that are inserted at specific points to help resolve your ailments. The acupuncture points access your body's Qi ('chee'). Qi flows through channels, also known as meridians.
Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. Today we often use a pump to create the desired level of suction.
Gua sha increases circulation, releases tight muscles, boosts the immune system and breaks up scar tissue. It is often used in areas such as the back of the neck, shoulders and upper back to release tension.
Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with Moxa. Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi.
