Cupping
 

Cupping is one of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine. In a typical cupping session, glass cups are warmed using a flammable substance, which is placed inside the cup. This removes all the oxygen, creating a vacuum. The cup is turned upside-down and placed over a specific area. The vacuum anchors the cup to the skin and pulls it upward on the inside of the glass as the air inside the jar cools. The suction and negative pressure is believed to open up the skin’s pores which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi (vital energy), breaks up obstructions, loosens muscles, sedates the nervous system and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.

 

Facial Rejuvenation 

Facial Rejuvenation is a technique where needles are inserted into problem areas of the face to improve blood flow, stimulates cell-regrowth, and aid in the production of collagen and elasticity of the skin.

  Used to:

 

  • Reduce wrinkles

  • Lift sagging skin

  • Enhance skin color and texture

  • Eliminate fine lines

  • Improve acne

Chinese Herbal Formulas

Using the ancient Chinese diagnostic tools of tongue and pulse identification, each patient is given a specific diagnosis unique to their pattern of illness. With this comes a specialized formula the patient may choose to take outside of the office to enhance and speed up their healing process. While acupuncture treatments may be given up to several times a week, herbal formulas are taken daily for optimal results. 

Acupressure

Acupressure therapy is used primarily with needle-phobic patients and children. Pressure is applied using the hands, or an electrical stimulation pen, with the aim of removing energy blockages, relieving pain and calming the nervous system.

 

Essential oils may be used at the patients request. 

CranioSacral Therapy 

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.

Using a soft touch which is generally no greater than 5 grams - about the weight of a nickel - practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it's effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
