​​​​ Acupuncture is a holistic form of Chinese medicine that has been in
practice for over 2,000 years.  It was formed on the theory that vital energy, called Qi (pronounced "chee") flows through the body along energetic pathways called meridians.  It is believed that pain and illness results from a blockage or an imbalance of qi.  The purpose of acupuncture and its modalities is to assist in rebalancing organ and bio-mechanical disharmonies.

From a biomedical perspective, research has suggested acupuncture helps the body's nervous system enter a parasympathetic state (rest and digest), opposed to a sympathetic state (fight or flight).  This leads to restored hormone balance, increased nerve conduction, better digestion, stress management, blood flow, and increased ability of the body to begin healing.

Acupuncture can help treat a variety of conditions including, but not limited to, anxiety, back pain, blood pressure, carpal tunnel, common cold, depression, poor digestion, erectile dysfunction, headaches, infertility, insomnia, joint and muscle pain, lethargy, menstruation issues, migraines, neck pain, sciatica, TMJ, urination issue and weight loss.


Cupping therapy is a needle-free therapy of traditional Chinese medicine that can be added onto an acupuncture treatment or used on its own.  During a treatment, the practitioner adheres glass cups to the patient's skin with the use of fire.  The fire is only used to create a vacuum in the cup and does not touch the patient's skin.  By combining stationary and sliding techniques, cupping stimulates the flow of qi and blood by gently drawing layers of muscle and myofascia away from the body. 

Used mainly on the back, cupping is effective in relieving muscle pain and tension, trigger points, and lung-related symptoms.  It is very popular amongst those who lead a physically active life and/or are prone to muscle tension.

Cupping is often compared to a firm-pressure massage, but works in a much smaller time frame of 20 minutes.  Because of increased blood flow in tissues, the treated area normally has painless red suction marks that fade in 4-10 days.
