Cupping Therapy (Myofascial Decompression)

Holistic wellness with cupping

Any healing modality used at Elemental Acupuncture must consider the impact and benefit to the whole person.

Body cupping helps to move blood and qi, which will relieve stagnation. Blood stagnation is a root cause of pain. Cupping also increases circulation to the tissues for muscle relaxation.

Facial cupping is used with luxurious, locally made Wildgold Botanicals Liquid Gold facial oil for facial rejuvenation and dewy, glowing skin.

Facial cupping helps with lymphatic drainage, aiding in increased circulation by moving qi and blood. Facial cups are used at 25% pressure of body cupping and are consistently moved around the face using a locally made oil that aids in facial rejuvenation resulting in dewy, glowing skin. This avoids leaving any marks on the skin which can happen with more intense body cupping practices when there is more stagnation in the deep tissue.

Brief cupping may be added to your acupuncture service at the discretion of your practitioner for no extra cost, depending on the diagnosis of your condition.

I suffer from PMDD, and Jen has been instrumental in helping me to regulate my menstrual cycle and manage my symptoms.

"She exudes warmth and compassion and I have felt so supported and held throughout my healing journey with her. She has truly been a lifeline for me, and I cannot express how grateful I am to have found her."

I was a little sceptical of acupuncture - until I met Jen.

"I’ve been seeing Jen for 6 months now and going through fertility struggles is tough, but after finding Jen it has made this process a lot less scary. Just having someone who is not only an amazing acupuncturist but a constant support and wealth of knowledge has made this whole process manageable. If you are like me and are unsure if acupuncture can actually help or your nervous, go see Jen she is 100% honest, awesome bedside presence and will set your mind at complete ease! Can’t recommend her enough!"

I’ve only seen Jen for acupuncture treatments a few times now but I’ll be a forever client.

"She is so knowledgeable and is committed to treating her clients as a whole, discovering the true root cause of any symptoms and then treating accordingly. I always leave feeling so much more connected with myself and SO good on all levels; physical, mental and spiritual. Her treatments as a whole have been a guiding light for me on the current path I’m on - can’t wait for more."
