Treatments

Clinical Cupping

Clinical Cupping involves placing cups with suction to increase circulation (in the meridian and local muscle) and decrease muscle pain. It is effective in treating menstrual symptoms/irregularities, depression, anxiety, tension, etc.

Dry Needling

Dry Needling involves the manipulation of acupuncture needles (twisting, tapping, etc) to stimulate muscle contraction. It is effective in reducing muscle pain and weakness and increasing range of motion.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a traditional Chinese medical treatment that involves the use of a “scrapping” tool to stimulate blood flow and promote healing. It is effective in the treatment of muscle tone, myofascial tension, tendonitis, etc.

Tui-Na Therapy

Tui-Na Therapy is a Chinese method of musculoskeletal manipulation. The practitioner uses different hands on techniques such as brushing, kneading, rolling, pressing, and rubbing to open the body’s defensive chi and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles.
