Acupuncture is part of the traditional Chinese medicine. The treatment is based on the use of thin metallic needles that will be placed on the skin to stimulate specific points in order to treat multiple diseases and several painful areas and spots.
The best result is obtained when the needles are manipulated manually by the therapist or connected to an electrical stimulation.
If the symptoms are a result of an energy blockage within the body, acupuncture can encourage the body’s natural healing response.
Acupuncture is considered complementary to other medical treatments, and is likely most effective when implemented along with certain healthy lifestyle habits.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This relieves muscle tension and improve overall blood flow. It is a great indication for back and neck muscle tension.
