AbdNeedleStages of Treatment (Relief, Corrective, and Maintenance):

  1. Relief – Symptom relief for improved Quality of Life
  2. Correction – Begins during relief stage and persists once symptoms subside. It is important to continue to treat the condition even after the symptoms are gone. Symptoms are only our body’s
    way of telling us there is a problem that it has tried to fix and failed. This means that although symptoms are gone, the problem may not yet be resolved. It is our goal to reduce or eliminate the
    core problem so that the symptoms do not return.
  3. Maintenance & Prevention – An important phase of treatment to maintain natural, healthy order within the body.

Cupping

Cups_ImageCupping is an ancient suction technique used to pull toxicity out of the body and stimulate healthy circulation. The intensity of the suction can be increased or decreased to the patient’s comfort level. However, most find
it to be very therapeutic and effective in their treatment, similar to a deep tissue massage.

Specific conditions treated with cupping:

  • Pain and stiffness – cupping facilitates elimination of lactic acid stored in the tissue and stimulates healthy blood flow.
  • Lung conditions such as – Cough, Bronchitis, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections, Asthma, etc.: The suction of the cups will stimulate the Lungs and help break-up mucous and phlegm that is trapped in the Lungs for easier expectoration & faster recovery.
  • Immune Support with improved circulation and warmth
  • Cellulite Reduction Therapy: Cups are used over the area of concern to assist in breaking up accumulated fat cells to smooth out the surface of the skin. Please call for more information about
    this treatment.
