A HOLISTIC WAY OF LIFE
Acupuncture is a component of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are inserted into the body in order to balance out your body's energy. In Chinese medicine, we believe that when your body's energy is out of balance sickness occurs. With the insertion of tiny needles at specific points on your body, we can restore the flow of your Qi-your vital life energy.
Acupuncture needles are small, single used, sterilized, and non-toxic. These needles differ from the ordinary syringe because the latter are hollow and used to inject fluid inside the body or draw blood from it while acupuncture needles are solid and much smaller.
Cupping is a bodywork technique that uses suction to create a degree of negative pressure. By creating negative pressure while manipulating the soft tissue, cupping helps release rigid tissue, loosen adhesions, and lift connective tissue to allow better blood flow to the skin and muscles.
The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, help relieve pain, remove "heat" and pull out the toxins that linger in your body's tissues. You usually will feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup. Often, this sensation is relaxing and soothing.
Swedish massage is the most traditional form of Western massage, and for many in the United States, it's the image associated with massage. Feeling like your body and soul are not exactly connected? Looking for a relaxing treatment while addressing these tight muscles at the same time? Take some time out of your busy day to begin to heal yourself the right way.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
It’s not unusual to have some soreness following a deep tissue massage. Using a heating pad may help to relieve soreness.
