Acupuncture works by stimulating your body’s natural energy flow. This flow nourishes the body and allows it to function smoothly and efficiently. Any disruption or blockage of the flow of energy could result in an unbalance in the body (ie. decrease function or pain).
Acupuncture aims to correct this flow of energy, thereby restoring function and balance within the body.

Cupping therapy is an ancient technique with the purpose to promote health and healing by loosening soft tissue and connective tissue, scarring and increasing circulation.
This therapy utilizes silicone, glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pump to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, or left on for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release.
COMMON USES FOR CUPPING THERAPY
Muscle Tightness: Tension and Pain (loosens knots and deep tissue blockages)
Gynecological Issues: Absent periods, Irregular periods
Lymph Drainage: Helps to drain and clear lymph nodes
Boosts Skin Health: Tones and firms skin
Factors to consider when choosing a Cupping treatment session:
30 minute treatment is ideal for 1 area of the body, the most common being the full back.
45 minute treatment allows for 2 to 3 areas of your body to be cupped, this could be a back and chest combo.
60 minute treatment allows for full body cupping. This session is great because many people forget about their legs and feet. More often than not, treating the legs and feet help with lower back pain.
Acu-Cupping is unique to Pure Health. Kelly loves this treatment because it allows her to help a patient with their physical and emotional pain. Cupping treats the physical while acupuncture helps release any blockages and gets energy moving freely again throughout the body.
Acu-Cupping treatments can be booked for 60 or 90 minute sessions.
