For the Stress-case
This is one stop on your journey you don't want to miss. The Relaxation Station is a chance to clear all your worries and stressors so that you leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Using acupuncture, moxibustion and heat therapy, we work together to guide your body and mind into a relaxed state to that your body may heal.
The Bonfire is where we really turn things up. I use the ancient healing art of moxibustion to circulate blood, reduce pain, and nourish the body. Moxibustion, also called moxa, is a dried Chinese herb, Ai Ye, that is burned near or on the surface of the skin. I recommend the Bonfire for anyone experiencing pain, digestion problems, fatigue, or gynecological disorders.
This treatment does not suck! Well, maybe a little.
Using silicon and glass cups, I create a suction on the skin. The suction allows for itty bitty spaces to be created between your muscle fibers which allows fresh blood to enter. The discoloration seen after cupping is like "old blood" being dislodged so that new, fresh blood can nourish the area. Cupping is good for tight, sore and painful muscles because it increase circulation. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety.
