We will have a brief exam and discuss your health goals. Then acupuncture needles will be placed throughout your body on specific acupuncture points for your condition. After they are placed you will rest on the table for 25-30 minutes. Needles are removed. Pain relieving oils are then massaged into back, neck, and shoulders. We start with moving cupping, where the cups glide over tense muscles helping to reduce tension and soreness. The cups are then left in position over affected muscles and left on for 5-10 minutes, finishing with a soothing warm towel. WHAT IS CUPPING? Cupping is another modality used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cups are placed on the body by creating a suction. They can either be left in place or moved along the muscles and meridians. It is almost like the inverse of massage, instead of pushing we are pulling the muscles. Don't be scared of the marks sometimes left behind, cupping feels amazing! WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CUPPING? Cupping is excellent at reinforcing your acupuncture treatment by improving circulation, moving lymph, detoxing the body, pulling out stagnation, and relaxing tight muscles.
