What is Acupuncture

Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. A treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points along the body’s meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote the body’s remarkable self-healing abilities. It is used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness.

It has now become one of the most widely used forms of alternative health care. Fine sterile needles are placed in a safe and painless manner in order to target areas that boost immunity, physical heath, and overall well-being. The following are illnesses found on the World Health Organization list of conditions that can be treated with acupuncture. These are just some of the treatable disorders:

What is Fire Cupping?

Fire Cupping or “Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.” – webmd.com

Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture Therapy

Auriculotherapy (also Auricular Therapy, Ear Acupuncture, Auricular Acupuncture, and auriculoacupuncture) is a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem, which reflects the entire body, represented on the auricle, the outer portion of the ear. Conditions affecting the physical, mental or emotional health of the patient are assumed to be treatable by stimulation of the surface of the ear exclusively. Similar mappings are used in many areas of the body, including the practices of reflexology and iridology.
