Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient Chinese form of alternative medicine in which local suction is created on the skin. Practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow to promote healing. Cupping creates space and separation in the tissues that allows the therapists to work more effectively and comfortably on the client.

Massage CuppingTM is a specific set of movements that the trained practitioner uses in different combinations to quickly facilitate elimination of debris and release of rigid soft tissues. The movements and techniques stay within the boundaries of professional licensing and may be adapted to almost any modality that the therapist is trained.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is a painless, non-surgical method of reducing the signs of the aging process. Though Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture can sometimes be referred to as an Acupuncture Facelift, it is not considered a cosmetic procedure. It is a rejuvenation and revitalization process designed to help the whole body look and feel younger.

Acupuncture has been used for cosmetic purposes (beauty treatments!) for over 1,000 years, since the Song Dynasty (960 AD). Originally it was only available to the women in the emperor’s court (otherwise known as concubines). Fine acupuncture needles are inserted in specific facial areas. The needles increase circulation and enhance the health of the skin and underlying tissues.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a gentle hands on therapy used by trained practitioners in the health field.   A Cranio-Sacral session involves the therapist placing their  hands on the client, which allows them to tune into their unique cranio-sacral rhythm. The practitioner  gently works with the cranial system and fascial system.  In this way, the restrictions of nerve passages are said to be eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is said to be optimized, and misaligned cranial bones are restored  to their proper position. Craniosacral therapists use the therapy to  treat depression, anxiety, neck and back pain, jaw pain, headaches, and digestive problems.

Sit with a licensed acupuncturist and discover a formula prescribed specifically for you and your conditions! Our comprehensive consultation will allow for you to alert the Practicioner of every symptom you feel. Sometimes this is a difficult task for patients who are used to seeing allopathic Practitioners that do not require or ask for the same information.  There is no such thing as an insignificant symptom or problem. The Acupuncturists at HWC may ask you whether you have a tendency to feel hot or cold, whether you tend to have a certain taste in your mouth, about the quality of your sleep and digestion, whether you have a tendency toward a certain emotional state (e.g. sadness, depression, anxiety), and whether you have any pain or swelling.  No symptom is insignificant when undergoing your Chinese Herb Consultation.

Gua Sha is a technique in which a smooth friction is applied in repeated, even strokes with a flat tool to the skin’s surface. Gua in Chinese means “to rub” or create friction. Sha is the term used to describe congestion of blood at the surface of the body. There is no pain or lasting discoloration to the skin and the procedure is completely safe. This method is used to improve circulation of blood and lymph, promote healthy metabolic processes, and removes toxins from the body. It is used to treat a variety of acute and chronic health conditions including fever, cold and flu, muscular and tendons pain, stiffness, fibromyalgia, cough, bronchitis and asthma – to name a few.
