Cupping refers to an ancient practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and air is removed creating suction. This causes the superficial muscle layer to be drawn upwards increasing blood flow and releasing tension within the fascia tissue.

PRENATAL CARE

For thousands of years, Traditional Chinese Medicine has provided safe treatment for women during pregnancy and postpartum. Today, we cannot empathize the importance of caring for yourself throughout the many changes that occur in your body during pregnancy. Increasingly we are also raising awareness in caring for yourself after the birth of your baby.  Recovery from pregnancy and labor should be made a priority to avoid problems and promote good health long after the birth. We believe that preventive as well as symptomatic care before, during, and after pregnancy is vital for the mother and baby. Acupuncture offers safe, effective, and drug-free treatment options during pregnancy.

POSTNATAL CARE
