The origins of acupuncture are ancient, but its usefulness is more relevant than ever. Acupuncture uses tiny needles to stimulate the body and induce physical changes. Needles are placed on specific points that can change the energetic characteristic of surrounding tissue to relieve physical symptoms. Needles rarely cause discomfort and are typically left from 10 – 30 minutes. Occasionally, herbs and electric stimulation will be added to the acupuncture treatment to enhance its effects.
Cups are pneumatic devices that are becoming more popular in the health community among massage / physical therapists, and cosmetologists. They decompress muscle and skin tissue allowing fresh blood and nutrients to circulate beneath the surface. Anywhere from one to a dozen cups with varying degrees of pressure are left on the body for 3-7 minutes while you relax. Cupping can be used for both pain and cosmetic purposes.
HANDS ON THERAPY
Hands-on therapy can include any combination of massage, acupressure, stretching, joint rotation / traction, and fitness instruction. Depending on the needs and goals of the patient, any one or all of these modalities will be used in addition to acupuncture and cupping in alleviating a patient’s issues.
