Acupuncture

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the greatest gifts from the Chinese culture. The earliest document about acupuncture dates back to around 5,000 years ago. “Emperor Nei-Jing” is the bible of Chinese medicine and acupuncture and was completed approximately 2,000 years ago. It records the twelve regular meridians that we use in Chinese medicine today and is still the most influential book in today’s Chinese medicine society.

One of the best features of our acupuncture services is that the needle insertion is just a light touch and is painless. Yet, the result of our acupuncture treatment is profound because the acupuncture point is located very precisely. We always use sterilized, disposable needles for acupuncture treatments.

 Massage Cupping

Massage Cupping Therapy is an ancient healing method used extensively by the Chinese 4000 years ago; the Egyptians 5,000 years ago, and even the great Greek doctor Hippocrates himself was using cupping 2,500 years ago.

By creating suction and vacuum pressure, Massage Cupping Therapy will soften tight muscles, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to the problem tissues, reduce inflammation, and drain toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.

The treatment will be effective for the following conditions:

• Muscle tension & pain (back, neck, shoulder and other musculoskeletal
conditions)

• Skin problems like eczema and acne

• Blood disorders such as anemia and hemophilia

• Rheumatic diseases such as arthritis

• Bronchial congestion as in cases of allergies and asthma

• Varicose veins
