Acupuncture involves the strategic insertion of fine needles into specific points along the body for therapeutic effect. It has been used for thousands of years to help millions of people throughout the world, and has been shown to improve circulation, decrease swelling, reduce inflammation, decrease pain, and promote tissue repair.
One way that acupuncture works is by stimulating the central nervous system to increase the secretions of chemicals like endorphins and serotonin. These neurotransmitters act as natural pain relievers, and help to regulate mood - thereby improving both physical and emotional well-being.

Cupping is the practice of applying a vacuum-effect on the skin using glass or plastic cups. This "decompresses" the underlying tissue, and causes toxins to drain from the cells. At the same time, it catalyzes the lymphatic system to carry these toxins away for processing and elimination.
Traditional moxibustion is the use of an herb from the artemisia family to treat symptoms of deficiency or "cold" in the body. Patients find immense benefit when moxibustion is used in conjunction with needling. Circulation is improved when certain points and meridians of the body are warmed with the moxa. If you suffer from arthritic pain aggravated by weather, have a stiff neck due to cold and flu, or are post-partum, you may be surprised at how effective moxibustion treatment alleviates pain.
