Acupuncture means insertion of fine sterile needle with the thickness of about 0.20 mm at specific areas in the body to activate the flow of the vital energy (Q) and blood, ease the nerve systems and balance hormonal and lymph.
We specialize in distal acupuncture techniques at Green Chi Acupuncture. This method enhances your inner healer and eases the pain without stimulating the inflamed area.
Dry cupping is applying silicon or glass cup on the body and creating a suction in order to have a better blood circulation to ease the muscle tension and relax the body. Some people like it even better than massage.
Cupping is detoxing by bringing blood to the surface of the skin.
Also cupping on the back helps activate the function of organs, especially for lungs.
Wet cupping or Hijamma is a healing technique that sucks bad blood out at certain areas by poking your skin with a diabetic lancet 0.17G.
Facial acupuncture is a local and distal treatment technique that improves blood circulation and triggers the production of collagen. It helps improve wrinkles and dark spots, brighten the skin tone and lead to facial rejuvenation.
We can also treat jaw tension, bell’s palsy and migraine headache. This treatment is calming and relaxing.
Facial acupuncture that we offer in North Vancouver is a whole body treatment to improve your overall health, balance hormones and relax the body.
