Auricular acupuncture
30 minutes
Components: Application of needles, magnets, tiny seeds, or crystals, treating the outer ear. Points exist on the ear just like in the body acupuncture system.  They can be detected either by a painlike sensitivity, or with equipment for differential electrical detection. Auricular acupuncture is useful for stress management, post-traumatic stress, pain management, internal organ balance, mental and emotional balance plus more.

Gua Sha
30 minutes
Components: Use of a smooth-edged tool to gently target areas of your body.

Using gua sha promotes the flow of qi through the body, while helping to ensure a better blood supply and proper nerve conduction so everything moves through your body as it should. If you don’t have a smooth flow of blood and energy throughout the body, it can manifest as muscle knots, soreness, weakness, or pain. Acupuncture used along with gua sha helps promote movement of blood supply through the tissues in a healthy way that supports homeostasis.

Gua sha is used in specific location of the body,  where there is inflammation or stagnant energy (qi) to help improve circulation and promote healing.

Gua sha has many benefits and can help relieve several health conditions. Gua sha is good for musculoskeletal problems, like tightness in the shoulders, legs and back. It can also help alleviate tension headaches, migraines, neck pain or swellings. Gua sha can even help with anxiety, fatigue, insomnia and perimenopausal symptoms when used with acupuncture.

Fire cupping – 45 mins, Stationary Cupping – 30 min
Components: Application of cupping tools on strategic points and meridian pathways of the body.

Outcome: Originally used for lung conditions like bronchitis and pneumonia, now widely used for pain relief and musculoskeletal injuries, such as strains, sprains, back injuries, promote muscle relaxation, detox, immune system stimulation and to relieve inflammation. The practice of Cupping improves the blood flow through the tissues to promote healing within the body. It involves creating suction on the skin using a glass, ceramic, bamboo, or plastic cup. Negative pressure is created in the cup either by applying a flame to the cup to remove oxygen before placing it on the skin or by attaching a suction device to the cup after it is placed on the skin. The suction created encourages blood flow and this increased circulation promotes healing and reduce pain. Immediate benefits can be felt immediately after cupping.

Due to the vacuum action of the cups, marks may appear on the skin, this is beneficial and does not produce irritation. The mark typically clears within 3-7 days.
