Private Acupuncture Services: Private acupuncture services are performed in a private room, where one patient is treated at a time. These appointments will last anywhere between 30-60 minutes (depending on appointment time and patients comfort). These treatments are ideal for people who do not want to be around other patients and those who want to be treated laying on a table.
Community/Group/Semi-Private Acupuncture This type of acupuncture is performed in a communal space. Patients will be treated while seated in a chair and there may be other patients in the room. Each treatment will last 30-60 minutes (depending on the appointment time and each patient's comfort.) Each treatment chair is spaced with adequate social distance as to not interfere with safety and/or privacy concerns. This setting more closely resembles what traditional acupuncture clinics look like in Asia. It allows for many people to be treated at once and offers a lower-cost. It is ideal for patients who prefer to be seated upright, who need or prefer frequent acupuncture and those on a budget.
Cupping Cupping is a form of therapy where glass cups are applied to the skin using suction. These cups may be applied using a heat technique ( called fire cupping) or by utilizing an external pump. Cupping is used to decrease muscle tension, increase blood flow, break up fascial adhesions and can be uses therapeutically for respiratory and other conditions. Cupping will leave a temporary discoloration on the skin. It may be booked as a stand alone service (for existing patients only) or as an add-on service to any acupuncture treatment.
*Because there are circumstances where cupping may NOT be appropriate (OR SAFE) for you, you must have an established relationship with the clinic in order to receive this treatment.
