Acupuncture is the use of very small, filiform needles (about 1/6 of the size of a needle used to draw blood) gently placed in therapeutic locations. These points stimulate the nervous system, working to "reeducate" the brain and trigger biochemical and physiological changes.
These specific acupuncture points have been used for thousands of years to help harmonize the body and treat a number of different ailments. Because of their effect on the nervous system, acupuncture can work on both a physical and emotional level, effectively treating aches and pains of the body like back pain or acute injury, as well as emotional ailments like anxiety, depression, and grief. Modern research is backing the effectiveness of this age-old practice (which may explain it's growing popularity!).

Sessions can be accompanied by soothing aromatherapy and guided meditations for optimal stress relief.

Cupping uses a gentle vacuum effect to help increase blood flow and relieve muscle tension and soreness. Many patients equate the feeling to a massage. Cups may be left in place or moved along a muscle to stimulate blood flow.
Different methods include the use of suction (using plastic cups) or fire cupping, which is the use of fire placed briefly inside a ceramic or glass cup to create a vacuum effect before placing the cup on the skin. Small bruises may develop (if you remember those pictures of Michael Phelps!) and disappear within a few days on their own.
Cupping therapies offered include the use of round cups or heart-shaped ceramic cups.
