Acupuncture and Cupping are age-old staples of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Acupuncture and Cupping
In our Western World today, one of the primary reasons people seek Acupuncture treatments is to alleviate pain. Numerous studies show acupuncture as one of the most effective forms of treating pain without the usage of drugs, oftentimes bringing instant and lasting pain relief.
Acupuncture is also one of the most effective ways to relieve stress, the culprit behind most if not all of the problems of our everyday life. Cupping (applying specially designed suction cups on both sides of the spine) facilitates the free flow of blood and nutrients throughout the body. It is as relaxing as massage and generally feels wonderful.
When used together, an Acupuncture and Cupping treatment has a profoundly relaxing effect on the body, improving the health of internal organs, among them – the function of heart and lungs. It is also exceptionally effective in treating acute health conditions that require immediate attention.

We don’t need to go too far to find evidence of the how highly the Ancient Chinese Civilization regarded acupuncture, using it not only to treat disease but also – to prevent it. It is told that in Ancient China, an Emperor would always have an acupuncturist in attendance whose job was to keep the Emperor healthy. If the Emperor got sick the acupuncturist could lose his life.
Both Acupuncture and Cupping have been used in China for thousands of years for treatment of every health condition including increasing one’s youthfulness and vitality, improving the mother’s fertility and the warrior’s strength, the farmer’s energy to farm and the Emperors ability to reign.
