Acupressure

Acupressure can be used to replace acupuncture if one is too sensitive or afraid of needles. Light to firm pressure may be applied to acupuncture points to release tension and promote the circulation of blood. This form of body work encourages the free flow of qi to circulate among the energetic pathways between the muscles and bones. 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an integrative medicinal system that involves pricking the skin or tissues with needles, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Originating in ancient China, acupuncture is now widely practiced in the West. 


Cupping

Cupping is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine in which disposable plastic cups are applied to the upper back and to stimulate the flow of energy. The suction of the cups allow pathogens to release to the exterior of the body while improving body circulation and the immune system.

Amethyst Biomat

The amethyst Biomat is a portable infrared heating pad with a sauna feature that can be placed on top of a massage table, bed or the floor. This may be used to relieve minor muscle pain, join stiffness, arthritic pain, muscle spasms, minor sprains or strain. It may also help soothe the mind, reduce stress and fatigue in the body, improve sleep, reduce inflammation, increase tissue oxygen and improve muscle relaxation.
