Acupuncture, acupressure and cupping are some of your most powerful tools in keeping toxins going out and nutrients coming in with the proper healthy flow. These treatments activate the body’s healthy energy and entice more toxins to move out. Our acupuncture and acupressure treatments have a lymph drainage function to assist in good flow. When proper flow is restored, any symptoms you’re experiencing will go away. Studies have shown that toxins will actually leave through the acupuncture meridians stimulated during treatment. And anyone who has received acupuncture knows what it feels like to have a point with a lot of blockage stimulated, where the circulation starts moving better. When a more serious lymphatic issue is present, I will work on particular channels such as the spleen and stomach channels to help the body recover.
Thanks to the very popular Dr. Mehmet Oz, more and more people are becoming aware of the fantastic benefits of a simple, quick, painless therapy called fire cupping. As featured on The Dr. Oz Show on January 6 in an episode titled “Ultimate Alternative Medicine Secrets,” cupping involves sucking the air out of special cups and placing them somewhat like suction cups on the skin. The vacuum that’s created stimulates blood and energy flow, reduces stagnation and has a wide range of near-instantaneous health benefits.
