Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine, hair-thin needles into various parts of the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine asserts that this process regulates the flow of energy, bringing balance back to the body. Modern research posits that acupuncture causes the body to release endorphins, and other chemicals/hormones that stimulate the body's immune system.
Cupping therapy involves applying cups to areas of the skin, usually the back, and applying suction to cause negative pressure. This helps to bring blood flow to the muscles, loosen soft tissues, and activate the lymphatic system. It is especially effective for neck, shoulder, and back pain, respiratory and digestive issues.
Tui Na is a form of Chinese medical massage based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. To move the body’s Qi (energy) and invigorate the flow of Blood, and to help relieve pain, techniques of kneading, rolling, brushing, pressing or rubbing are used on acupuncture points and other areas of the body. Stimulation can be gentle or firm, depending on the needs of the patient.
