Cupping Therapy and Gua Sha
Portland acupuncturist practices cupping and gua sha

Cupping is the use of glass bulbous ‘cups’ to apply vacuum suction to the skin.  Gua sha is the use of a thin-edged tool to apply sustained, moving pressure to the skin. Both therapies work to increase circulation to skin, muscles, and surrounding tissue, and to relieve tension and pain and restore range of motion. 

I respect your time and dedication to your health and all treatments are centered on bringing you results, with ample time for questions. It’s important to me that you’re comfortable and understand the process.
