In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we use various forms of acupuncture. For example, there is scalp acupuncture to treat neurological conditions such as stroke, and there is dermatology needling to treat fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, there is auricular (ear) acupuncture to treat addictions. Moreover, the position, depth, and handling of the needles are taken into consideration. Medically speaking, acupuncture is the insertion of disposable, one-time-use, needles. There are several versions of needles, such as thumbtack, seven-star, plum blossom, three-edged, and filiform. Needles can also be used with electrical stimulation.
TCM Acupuncture can be applied for prevention purposes (general wellness) or during the illness process (e.g., the common cold) and it can also be used for recovery (e.g., sports).
TCM Acupuncture views a person holistically, meaning the root and branch of the health condition are assessed and treated.

How Does Acupuncture Work?
Modern scientific research conducted through organizations such as the National Institute of Health (NIH) has demonstrated that Chinese Acupuncture accesses the nervous system, initiating a chain of electrical events in the body. The body communicates through electrical impulses. Acupuncturists can stimulate points along the meridians (“highways” of “Qi” in the body) and this stimulation helps to clear the road and open the lines of communication, restoring balance to the flow of Qi (energy). Thus, Acupuncture helps to increase communication from the nerves to the brain, and from the brain to the organs and tissues of the body. Another function of Acupuncture is to increase the circulation of blood flow in the body. Why is this important? Blood brings oxygen to tissues as well as white blood cells which help heal damaged areas of the body.

Cupping is one of the many modalities of traditional Chinese medicine. Cupping is often used in conjunction with acupuncture to maximize treatment effectiveness. It involves the creation of vacuum through application of suction. Usually the traditional method is done using fire in a cup and applying to the skin, typically on the area where the pain, tension or discomfort is experienced.
What are the Therapeutic functions of Cupping in Chinese Medicine?
1. Warming the channels to remove cold (warming the body)
2. Promoting qi and blood circulation (increasing blood movement, causing vasodilation and stimulating blood circulation, therefore increasing metabolism and accelerating the elimination of waste and toxins from the body)
3. Relieving swelling (promoting lymphatic drainage)
4. Accelerating healing (through the increase of blood flow)
5. Adjusting body temperature (releasing heat or warming the body.
Who can benefit from cupping?

Cervical Spondylosis and alleviating musculoskeletal pain including chronic neck, shoulder pain, and lower back pain.
