Acupuncture & Cupping has been used for thousands of years as a means of aiding and healing our human bodies.

Acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain, but is also used for overall wellness, including stress management. This type of Traditional Chinese Medicine is a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in the body. By stimulating specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners are able to re-balance your flow of energy. Using acupuncture points to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissues is believed to boost your body's natural painkillers!

Acupuncture is used mainly to relieve discomfort associated with a variety of diseases and conditions, including (but not limited to):

  • Insomnia

  • Anxiety & Stress

  • Chemotherapy-induced and post-operative nausea and vomiting

  • Balancing hormones, inducing late periods

  • Weight management
