Acupuncture & Cupping
Traditional Chinese acupuncture involves the use of extremely fine needles over acupuncture points to re-balance the flow of energy (Qi) through pathways in the body (meridians) to treat different health issues. Acupuncture is commonly used to treat pain, internal conditions, as well as facilitating the self-healing process of the body, by stimulating sensory nerves, muscles, and connective tissues. Alternatively, acupressure can be used to achieve similar effects by using fingers, instead of needles, to apply a force on the same points.
Cupping is a traditional technique in Chinese medicine that utilizes suction cups on the skin to improve blood flow, alleviate muscle tension, and encourage healing. In the present days, it is a technique used frequently by acupuncturists and other physical therapists for pain management.
Our acupuncturist uses acupuncture as the primary form of treatment, while supplementing with other techniques such as cupping, heat therapy, and soft-tissue therapy. Acupuncture can be beneficial for managing various conditions/needs, some including:
Chronic pain management
Headaches and migraines
Gynecological related conditions
