Cocoon Wellness with Acupuncture Cupping Light Therapy
Acupuncture is an age-old healing practice of traditional Chinese medicine in which thin needles are placed at specific points in the body.
Chinese medical philosophy states that the body is able to heal itself, if its most subtle energy, the Qi, is flowing properly and harmoniously. Harmony in the Qi level will naturally affect the most physically perceivable level, the blood, tissues and bones and promote the process of healing there, because Qi is understood to be contained in those tissues. This is why acupuncture can successfully treat a comprehensive array of disorders, as severe as stabbing headaches, or the side-effect of chemotherapy, while remaining gentle and unobtrusive.
Cupping is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that involves glass or medical grade silicone cups and placing them on specific points on the body to create a local suction to facilitate the movement of blood in order to promote healing. Depending on the condition being treated, the cups are left in place for about 5-10 minutes; moved along the skin with oil; or placed momentarily, then moved to nearby location. Like a massage, moving the cups over the muscles increases blood and lymph circulation.

Light Emitting Diode (LED) phototherapy is the application of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. The energy is used to improve cellular performance. Phototherapy is known for its healing and anti-inflammatory properties and has a variety of applications across many medical fields. Research has shown that phototherapy can: increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, decrease wrinkles, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone and wrinkles, texture and clarity, ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm and arthritis and kill acne bacteria, and much more.
The resultant clinical benefits include pain relief in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, ankle sprain, and temporomandibular joint dysfunction, shoulder and neck pain, arthritis, and post-herpetic neuralgia, as well as tissue repair in cases of diabetic ulcer, venous ulcer, mouth ulcer, fractures, tendon rupture, ligamentous, tear, torn cartilage, and nerve injury.”
