Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body. It's primarily used to relieve pain but also has been used to treat other conditions. More than 3 million Americans use acupuncture, but it is even more popular in other countries.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Community acupuncture is a great way to experience the healing benefits of acupuncture in the presence of other like minded individuals. This type of acupuncture is done in a group setting, making it a cost effective way to receive quality care. The philosophy behind community acupuncture is that when we heal ourselves, we heal others, making it a powerful and meaningful way to make a positive impact on yourself and others.
