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.”

Cocoon Acupuncture has a unique style, blending aspects of Eastern and Western approaches to medicine. To determine the type of acupuncture treatment that will help you the most, your practitioner may ask you about your symptoms, behaviors, and lifestyle.


Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.


During a cupping session, a practitioner places round cups directly on your skin. The cup is either first heated with fire or manually pumped to create a suction. The cups are then left on your skin for several minutes.



Anti-aging: increases collagen and elastin production, reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin firmness and resilience

Pain management: increases micro-circulation and tissue repair, decreases inflammation and pain, reduces stiffness, muscle spasms, tension and joint pain, treats arthritis and promotes post-surgical healing

Acne: destroys acne-causing bacteria, clears up existing blemishes, prevents future breakouts and restores the skin’s healthy, smooth, and radiant appearance

Wound healing: accelerates tissue repair and wound closure


Celluma is unique and quite unlike any other low-level light therapy device available today. Based on NASA research, Celluma delivers blue, red and near-infrared light energy simultaneously to safely treat a wide variety of conditions. Each wavelength is absorbed by different molecules that act as a signaling mechanism for different cellular processes. For example, some reduce inflammation and some kill bacteria, while others enhance localized circulation.  

Cocoon wellness can be a standalone treatment or in conjunction with another service of your choice.
