Acupuncture, Acupressure & Cupping Services

Patient receiving acupuncture treatment.Acupuncture, acupressure, and cupping are therapies that have many therapeutic and pain relieving benefits. They are used to encourage natural healing, reduce or relieve pain, and improve function of affected areas of the body. Acupuncture originated from China and is a process of inserting and manipulating filiform needles into various points on the body. By placing these needles in the proper location on the body acupuncture corrects imbalances in the flow of qi in the body through channels known as meridians. Acupuncture sessions can be as short as 15 minutes or as long as an hour depending on what the practitioner feels is required. Studies have found that acupuncture is also helpful in aiding with nausea and vomiting as related to pregnancy, chemotherapy, and post-surgery pain.
