Acupuncture: The insertion of tiny sterile (and disposable) needles at specific points on the body.
Cupping: This involves a localized suction produced by heating a small glass cup. The cup is turned upside-down to be placed over a specific area. The vacuum created by the lack of oxygen anchors the cup to the skin and pulls it upward on the inside of the glass as the air inside the jar cools. Drawing up the skin opens up the skin’s pores, which helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balances and realigns the flow of Qi, breaks up obstructions, and creates an avenue for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
Heat Treatment with a TDP Lamp: This is used to warm an area of the body to promote blood circulation, improve the lymphatic system function, and accelerate the natural healing process of the body.
Gua Sha: Gentle scraping on the skin surface using a smooth-edged instrument to increase circulation of Qi and blood.
Electro-Acupuncture: A mild electric micro-current (similar to a TENS treatment) used to stimulate the acupuncture points.
Tui Na / Acupressure: A massage technique which stimulates the meridians facilitating the flow of Qi.
