Acupressure and Cupping

 

Acupressure technique is effective for treating nerve associated pain in most cases.

Before starting a series of acupressure treatments, we do a 5-minute “test” to see how your body responds to the treatment.  There is no charge for the test.  If your pain is related to nerve pressure, the pain will start to ease away within minutes and you will feel very relaxed.

Cupping is performed with small glass jars.  We use heat to create a vacuum in the jar, then we place it on your skin where it will be “sucked” into the jar slightly.  This suction brings a lot of oxygen and blood to that area which will promote muscle relaxation and healing.
