What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient Oriental technique used to treat illness through the use of fine-gauged needles.
While Acupuncture is used to treat many specific symptoms, it is a holistic medicine and treatments are focused on the whole person. It works on multiple levels, addressing multiple systems. It’s like throwing a pebble into a pond, creating ripples that reach far beyond the site of needle insertion.
FAQ & Answers about Acupuncture
What is Acu-Massage?
Acu-massage is a full 1-hour massage focusing strictly on the 12 main acupuncture channels.
Acupuncture channels flow throughout the body. Over time, the channels can become less efficient which can lead to a myriad of problems mentally, emotionally and physically. Each channel is massaged with attention to specific acupuncture points along each channel. It is a means to “tap” into the dynamic energies of each channel allowing free flow of possible stuck, stagnant energy - likened to removing sticks and leaves in a stream to allow it to flow more efficiently.
What is Cupping?
Cupping is a type of treatment or modality used in conjunction with acupuncture.
It is a method of stimulating acupuncture points by applying suction through a glass jar or cup, in which a partial vacuum has been created. This technique stimulates blood flow to specific areas on the body. Cupping is frequently used for back and neck pain, sprains, soft tissue injuries, and helping relieve fluid from the lungs in chronic bronchitis or asthma.
