Acupuncture is a healing modality predicated on the circulation through, and nourishment of the body’s qi. This involves the insertion of sterile, solid filiform needles into the skin at specific points. Stimulating acupuncture points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through the meridian pathways in our body. The purpose of the meridians is to integrate all parts of the body; from internal organs to the surface of the body. Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve the bodies internal functions.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. The air inside the cup is heated and the rim is then applied to the skin, forming an airtight seal. As the air inside the cup cools, it contracts, forming a partial vacuum and enabling the cup to suck the skin, pulling in soft tissue, and drawing blood to that area. If oil has been applied, the cups can be moved around the patient's body along the "meridians" and at specific points to allegedly help with immune boosting and removing toxins from the body. Commonly used in treating respiratory illnesses such as allergies, asthma, common cold, bronchitis, and pneumonia. Also commonly used for musculoskeletal conditions.

Moxibustion is the heating of the acupuncture needles with dried herb sticks to activate and warm the acupuncture point. Also known as "moxa".
This practice augments the use of regular acupuncture by connecting the device leads to the needle’s handle.The leads are connected to two needles at time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously.
This device generates a painless and constant electric pulse. The frequency and intensity of the impulse are adjusted depending on the condition being treated. Electro Stimulation can restore health and well-being, and is particularly good for treating any pain, especially acute.
