Various Modalities Used During Your Acupuncture Session: 

+ Acupuncture:
Thin acupuncture needles (some as thin as a strand of hair) are inserted in acupuncture points or "ashi" or pain points to promote blood circulation.  
Acupuncture evokes natural healing by stimulating the body's nervous, endocrine, immune, cardiovascular, and digestive systems

+ Cupping:
Cupping is a technique that uses the application of glass cups and flame to create a suction on the skin.  The cups may be stationary placed or "sliding" to stimulate blood movement on various parts of the body.  Cupping assists with inflammation, blood flow, scar tissue, detoxification and respiratory conditions (such as the common cold).  Don’t be alarmed if you notice red marks after your treatment - it’s completely normal.

+ Gua Sha:
Gua Sha is a painless “scraping” technique in areas of stagnation or pain.  Gua Sha is a traditional form of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM). It promotes healthy circulation to the area, relieves pain and tension, and restores proper function to the muscles.  Excellent for patients experiencing shoulder/muscle tension, migraines/headaches, or a flu-like respiratory problems. Don’t be alarmed if you notice red marks or "sha" after your treatment - it’s completely normal.

+ Moxibustion:
Moxibustion an ancient Chinese medicine technique which involves the burning of Artemesia Vulgaris (a.k.a. mugwort) to facilitate healing.  It creates a pleasant sensation of warmth above and below the surface of the skin to stimulate the flow of blood and fluid.  It is excellent for individuals with digestive dysfunction, localized trauma, or an overall 'cold' feeling or temperature. 

+ Electro-acupuncture (“E-stim”):
Small electrical currents (millicurrent) are sometimes added to the acupuncture needles to create an accentuated treatment effect.  It feels like “tapping,” or “pulsing” and is a painless movement of the muscle near the stimulated needle.   Microcurrent is similar to the body’s own electrical impulses or muscle contractions to assist with acute and chronic injuries. 

+ Dao Needling:
Dao Needling is a modern technique of Chinese medicine to assist with acute/chronic pain and blood stagnation  It is highly effective in relieving persistent localized and sharp chronic pain when other modalities are mildly or temporarily relieving or effective.  Also excellent in helping acute traumas and bruising.  Pain relief known to go from a 9 to a 1 (on a pain scale of 1-10) with one treatment.  

+ Massage:
Localized massage or handheld hyper volt is utilized for specific muscle tension and pain.
