Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, single-use disposable needles into the skin and muscle tissue. The technique and depth depend on your condition of the day. It is not as painful as the hypodermic needle you may have experienced in the past. Ideally, you will feel a deeper sensation within your tissues and even a traveling sensation in your body conduits. Most people fall asleep during acupuncture and we fondly call this the “acu-nap.”
Many people who struggle with chronic pain find relief through cupping therapy, especially when administered alongside other standard chiropractic procedures. We can help patients find the lasting relief they need with a customized treatment plan. Cupping therapy is a form of treatment that involves placing specialized cups on the skin for a few minutes to treat pain, blood flow and inflammation.
