Acupuncture & Cupping
What to Expect
Acupuncture is one of the most commonly used therapies in the world. Developed over 2,500 years ago in China, it is now used for a variety of concerns, including general pain management, headaches, insomnia, hormone balance, digestive upset, stress/anxiety, depression, and much more.
It is one of the most gentle therapies we offer and can have significant results in very few treatments. The vast majority of patients we see for acupuncture present with musculoskeletal or nerve pain, for which acupuncture is very effective. Acupuncture involves inserting tiny needles into specific points along the body to manipulate muscles and nerves, whereas cupping involves applying suction cups to the skin to increase local blood flow.
What Acupuncture & Cupping Treats
Acupuncture is a whole-body treatment approach, meaning it can be effective for a variety of conditions, including but not limited to:
