Fire Cupping is an ancient therapy that uses thick glass cups and a flame to create a vacuum on the skin. Cups are placed over various areas of the body to stimulate circulation and disperse congestion, thus alleviating pain and promoting healing. Cupping can treat conditions of stubborn pain, muscle fatigue or weakness, and Cold-related conditions of the body.
Fire Cupping treatments are booked as 60 minute sessions.
Please note: Cupping treatments result in distinctly noticeable and sometimes superficially tender bruises at the treated areas. These markings naturally disperse over 1-2 weeks, leaving the area more open and free flowing.
Using the same theoretical foundation as acupuncture, TCM Herbal Medicine is used alongside acupuncture for balancing the body and maintaining health.

Herbal medicine can be administered as powder, pills, tablets, tinctures, topically, or as whole dried herbs decocted into tea.
Custom prescriptions are accessible through an Herbal Medicine Consultation and are included in all TCM Acupuncture treatments. Pre-made formulas may be accessed by Community Acupuncture patients.
