Patients are often seeking solutions to their nagging body pain.
Typically, these are people who have desk jobs by day, but on evenings and weekends take on physical tasks they haven’t necessarily prepared their bodies for, leaving them with injuries and muscle strains. Or, sitting at a desk all day, in a stressful environment, has left them with headaches and chronic back pain.
In each of these cases, much of their pain has a muscular component to it, which can be efficiently addressed with a combination of Acupuncture and Cupping. A patient who is barely walking from pain and muscle spasming walk visibly better right after their treatment.
If you’re looking for pain relief, come on in to give Acupuncture and Cupping a try!
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of inserting thin solid needles into specific Acupuncture points in the body to promote the harmonious flow of Qi throughout the Meridians and achieve therapeutic effects.
Acupuncture can be used to treat a variety of health conditions.

Digestive Complaints (Constipation, Diarrhea, Abdominal Pain)
What is Cupping?
Cupping uses a silicone or glass cup to which suction is applied in order to pull up the skin and tissues, allowing more blood and lymph flow to the area. Think about it as decompressing the whole area while bringing blood flow, flushing out inflammatory compounds, and facilitating the flow of healing nutrients to the area. In traditional Chinese medicine, we call it moving stagnant Qi and Blood in the area.
You can get some “bruising” in the area afterward (you may recall Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps’ highly publicized cupping marks), which usually disappears within a week or so. Most people don’t mind the marks because of the relief they get from the treatment. The marks can be minimized by continuously moving the cups rather than keeping them still.
