Cupping therapy is used by creating a vacuum on the skin. Suction cups rapidly release muscular tension, break up and drain stagnation, and increase blood and lymph flow to the skin and muscles.
Cupping has a powerful detoxifying effect, and also relieves musculoskeletal tension and pain. It also helps the body relax and unwind.
"After my colon surgery, I felt very weak with moderate discomfort. After a couple of treatments my discomfort subsided and I began having more energy. Because of Maya's treatments I recovered from my surgery weeks ahead of schedule."
"I've had mild tendonitis that acts up occasionally, depending on how much and how I use my hands. When my forearm started aching excruciatingly for two days, I was unable to use my hand at all. After the first treatment, I was able to take my forearm out of the sling, and the pain had subsided by 60%. After the second treatment, the pain had totally vanished, and hasn't returned since."
Maya has a great depth of experience and knowledge in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Her table side manner is calm, professional and friendly. I leave her office feeling renewed after receiving treatments from her.
"I am happy to share with you some sense of the benefits I have experienced in my 4 or 5 years receiving acupuncture . After a severe car accident with broken back, ribs and sternum, I was in chronic pain. With weekly visits, this was relieved and has not returned. I had help after an ankle break and reconstruction, and stomach and digestive challenges have been helped greatly. Just my last visit with Maya, I could not drive any distance without pulling over because of weeping eyes from dry eyes…Helena
"When I first went to Maya I was struck by her patient, caring, attentive listening and diagnostic skills. Through the years her expertise in treatments has helped me through a myriad of health issues including digestive problems, bladder issues and anxiety. I am so grateful that Maya knows how to put together the puzzle pieces and I always leave feeling more centered and healthier."
