What is Cupping?
Cupping is a type of vacuum therapy, where a cup is applied to a specific area based on the treatment chosen, and is pumped up to cause stretch in the tissue. This pulling of the tissue causes several different effects including stimulating blood flow, inflammation, immune response, and stimulation of the nervous system. Cupping does leave marks and bruises, how long these take to go away depends on the tissue response to cupping, and how long the cups are left on.
Dry Needling Only: 15 minute session $30
What is Dry needling?
Dry needling involves inserting a tiny monofilament needle into symptomatic tissue with intent to reduce pain, increase circulation, and improve function of the neuro-musculoskeletal system. Dry needling is not acupuncture, because it is based more on neurology, physiology, and western medical principles.
