What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and is designed to boost the body’s natural healing abilities. This type of eastern medicine views the body as a whole, taking an approach not of treating symptoms but of holistically restoring balance for complete health.
Acupuncture treatment involves inserting very fine (hair-thin) needles into points along the body’s energy pathways (called meridians). By using these needles to trigger specific points along the meridians, acupuncture stimulates and regulates the flow of your body’s qi (pronounced “chi”). Qi is the life force that composes all living things, and imbalances in your qi can lead to disruptions in your body’s wellness. Acupuncture restores your qi’s balance for better whole-body health.

Glass Cupping Treatment
Centered Stillness Acupuncture and Massage Therapy, PLLC, offers cupping treatment as a complement to acupuncture therapy or as a stand-alone service. We use the fire cupping (also known as glass cupping) modality to increase blood flow and decrease pain. This cupping treatment works to remove stagnated blood, thus improving blood flow. Cupping is particularly effective at reducing pain, relieving chest congestion, and alleviating coughing. Just ask your acupuncturist if you might benefit from glass cupping therapy, and we can evaluate how to best integrate this modality into your treatment.
