After an initial consultation, clients relax on their stomach or back as the acupuncturist disinfects the area of treatment and carefully inserts thin, prepackaged needles just below the skin's surface. As the patient rests, the needles work to relieve tension in muscles and stimulate both the circulatory and nervous systems, helping trigger the release of pain-killing endorphins. During cupping, the specialist places sterilized jars on key areas of patients' backs. The airless jars create suction and help direct blood flow to injured or weakened areas, which promotes an accelerated healing process while releasing muscle tension. Cupping sessions generally last 10–15 minutes.
Licensed acupuncturist Angela Buckridge helps relieve pain and various bodily maladies by precisely placing sterilized needles on vital areas of the body. Buckridge identifies the source of disruption of each patient's particular bodily energy, or qi, during full examinations, which include a diagnosis of the pulse and tongue and a reading of one's middle-school diaries. The restored qi brought on by acupuncture needles helps alleviate the symptoms of illnesses and ailments such as headaches, insomnia, abdominal pain, and allergies. In addition to acupuncture, Buckridge also performs cupping treatments, in which she expertly affixes cups to patients' backs in order to accelerate healing within the body.
