Mind - Body Connection
Cupping therapy has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for roughly 3,000 years to restore the body's natural flow of Qi, blood, and energy. Using fire and glass cups to create suction, the negative pressure can help relieve pain, sedate the nervous system, promote blood flow, increase blood circulation while decreasing inflammation, promote lymphatic drainage, boost immunity and treat symptoms of the common cold and flu, assist weight loss, and improve digestion, skin conditions, asthma, and respiratory function.
Restore the Body
A therapeutic approach that involves scraping the skin using a specialized tool typically made of crystal, stone, or bone. Gua Sha restores balance in the body by increasing blood flow, breaking up scar tissue and decreasing inflammation to relieve pain and improve movement of joints. In addition to that, it can also soothe stress, release tension, improve immunity, treat fevers, headaches, and migraines. This ancient healing technique is also used in facial rejuvenation to improve fine lines, wrinkles, tone sagging skin and relax tight facial muscles by promoting more blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to the face, increasing collagen and elastin production while giving your skin a beautiful glow.
Herbal medicine is based on the use of plants, minerals, and animal extracts for their therapeutic properties. Since ancient times, herbal powders, tablets, and tinctures have been used by many different cultures throughout the world to treat illness, assist the body and restore balance for optimal functioning. Herbal medicine works in conjunction with acupuncture treatments to address specific conditions by providing nourishment on the cellular level while acupuncture addresses the physical body.
