Choose Between Two Options
- $59 for an initial consultation and two acupuncture treatments with cupping or gua sha therapy (a $165 value)
- $109 for an initial consultation and four acupuncture treatments with cupping or gua sha therapy (a $315 value)<p>
A licensed acupuncturist inserts sterile needles into the body during acupuncture sessions; these needles work to stimulate the flow of energy and promote overall wellness. Both options include cupping or gua sha treatments. Cupping is an ancient Chinese pain-relief practice in which cups create a gentle suctioning force on the skin to mobilize blood flow. Gua sha features a rounded instrument that is applied up and down the back and shoulders to stimulate blood flow and circulation.<p>
