Acupuncture & Cupping Treatment in Scottsdale
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is an ancient form of treatment that has proven to be effective for relieving a wide range of health problems. These include acute or chronic pain, insomnia, digestive issues and more.
The treatment works by ensuring that the body’s natural energy is able to move about without any restrictions. Acupuncturists slide very thin needles into points on of body that are associated with certain health issues. These areas are where energy blockages occur. When the blockages are removed, energy can begin flowing once again, which helps ease symptoms.
Our leading licensed acupuncturist will conduct a comprehensive evaluation that in order to determine the source of pain. During these consultations, our specialist will also explain how acupuncture works in order to help patients feel more comfortable. Being at ease allows this treatment method to work more quickly.
How Does Cupping Work?
Generally, cupping is combined with acupuncture in one treatment, but it can also be used alone. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. For weight loss and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.
Like acupuncture, cupping follows the lines of the meridians. There are five meridian lines on the back, and these are where the cups are usually placed. Using these points, cupping can help to align and relax the body as well as target more specific maladies. Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin. Toxins can be released, blockages can be cleared, and veins and arteries can be refreshed within these four inches of affected materials. Even hands, wrists, legs, and ankles can be ‘cupped,’ thus applying the healing to specific organs that correlate with these points.
Acupuncture & Cupping Treatment
Cupping has been used to treat a wide variety of conditions. It may be particularly effective at easing conditions that create muscle aches and pains.
Since the cups can also be applied to major acupressure points, the practice is possibly effective at treating digestive issues, skin issues, and other conditions commonly treated with acupressure.
