Acupuncture & Fire Cupping

Yoga East is proud to announce a new partnership with Jamie Jackson L.ac.and the Mi Lu Center

Starting March 19th from 11:30-1:30 we will have community style acupuncture and fire cupping available at the studio!

Community Acupuncture

Community acupuncture is a type of practice that allows you to heal with your peers. You, along with other individuals, will be receiving treatment together in the same room. Along with the needles, the collective energy of the group will help you relax. Usually distal points are needled (below the elbow, below the knee, and on the scalp).  The price for each treatment is $35.

Fire Cupping

Fire cupping is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that is either used in conjunction with acupuncture or individually as its own treatment. With fire cupping, a cotton ball is held with forceps and saturated with 90% alcohol. The cotton ball is then ignited and held under the glass cup. The cup is then immediately placed on the skin creating a vacuum and with negative pressure, draws the skin slightly up into the cup. This modality increases circulation, breaks up scar tissue, adhesions, and stops pain. It can also help with digestion and congestion in the lungs.  Fire cupping can be utilized on most parts of the body, and is relatively painless. Small purple/red circles may appear on the skin and last for several days.  The price for each treatment is $15
