Acupuncture

Acupuncture creates an environment so the body can begin to heal itself. Acupuncture affects every system in the body, circulatory, endocrine, immune and nervous. When acupuncture points are activated, signals are sent to the central nervous system and the brain. Natural pain killing endorphins are released, which is why acupuncture is so effective for chronic and acute pain. The insertion of acupuncture needles creates a micro trauma, this action brings blood and vital nutrients with anti-inflammatory properties to the area.

Cupping

Cupping much like acupuncture helps to remove the blockages and opens your channels. The suction breaks the congestion, and allows more circulation of energy, blood and lymphatic fluids into the area.  It also allows toxins and inflammation to come up to the surface of the skin to be released. Cupping reduces pain and increases range of motion.

Chinese Herbs

Chinese Herbs are used to balance the body through the use of nature: plants, seeds, minerals and roots. Much like food, when certain combinations of herbs are taken on a daily basis, they interact with and subtly modify biochemical processes in the body. Herbal therapies are used for the prevention and elimination of illness. There is a synergy of the herbs when they are put together in a customized formula tailored for each individual client.
