Acupuncture is an ancient East Asian healing modality that is able to treat a very wide range of conditions by bringing your body back to its original balance. Acupuncture accomplishes this by restoring the smooth flow of bio energy or qi throughout the body. By inserting and manipulating needles at specific points on the body, acupuncture is able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body’s ability to heal itself
INITIAL CONSULTATION + ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT
The first acupuncture appointment is an hour and a half. During this fist visit, I will make a full diagnosis and treatment plan. Follow up appointments are typically between 45 minutes to an hour, we will speak briefly and begin treatment.
Cupping is an ancient method of treatment which uses glass cups and fire to create a suction effect over points on the meridians or areas of tight muscles. Flames are never used near the skin and are not lit throughout the process of cupping. It is just a means to create the heat that causes the suction. Drawing up the skin is believed to open up the skins pores which helps stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of qi, breaks down obstructions, and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body. Cupping for muscular pain is like having a deep tissue massage, in reverse. It quickly dessolves muscle tension and and relaxes areas of tightness with ease. Cupping is also used frequently to treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, asthma and congestion; arthritis; gastrointestinal disorders; and reduce local swelling. Cupping is amazing to treat phlegm symptoms of the common cold.
This appointment is approx. 30 minutes. Can be scheduled as an indiviual session or an add-on to Acupuncture session.
