Cupping and Gua Sha
Cupping – Cupping is a form of therapy in which special cups are placed on your skin to create suction. It helps with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and general well-being. I is much like a deep tissue massage.
Gua Sha – Gua Sha is a technique defined as unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body to create transitory petechiae, which removes blood stasis, pain and produces anti-inflammatory effect. It has been shown as well to increased measurable aspects of the immune system for weeks and as well to lower liver enzymes. In other words it is a wonderful detox and immune booster
Cupping and guasha are incorporated into your acupuncture treatment visit when needed.
