There are a diverse range of acupuncture theories and techniques based on different philosophies. The method used in TCM is likely the most widespread in the US. It is most often used for pain relief, though it is very useful for a wide range of other conditions. Often, heat lamps are employed to warm areas being treated with acupuncture, as well.
The skin is drawn into the cup by creating a vacuum in the cup placed over the targeted area. This helps increase circulation and break up stagnation, especially in the back and neck. We often employ 'moving cupping,' which incorporates elements of massage and gua sha (a kneading technique) to break up the knots and adhesions that create back and neck discomfort.
Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body, and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. At White Crane, we believe that a deeper understanding of the connection between lifestyle, nutrition, exercise and emotional and physical health can help cultivate wellness and promote well-being.
