The services at Westminster Community Acupuncture are all about letting the body heal itself. The team there helps patrons avoid invasive surgeries and drugs with side effects with simple procedures, many of them thousands of years old. Thin, single-use needles spur our natural self-healing powers during acupuncture sessions, which are intended to target energy centers and bolster immune response and improve cellular function. Massage, whether it is Swedish, pre-natal, or one of a range of other styles, uses pressure on the body to bring various parts into harmony. Cupping, on the other hand, uses a warm cup to apply suction to the body, making it in some ways the inverse of massage, though both techniques can treat a wide range of discomfort and ailments.
