Acupuncture, Cupping, and Scraping

Acupuncture NeedlesAcupuncture has been used for centuries and is a great aid to assist in pain alleviation. It is commonly used to treat a variety of physical, mental, and emotional conditions. This modality is very helpful alongside chiropractic care, especially when treating neuropathies, hypertonic tissues, affected organs, or emotional stress episodes of anxiety and depression.

Dr. Winters utilizes cupping and scraping in order to increase fluidity between the fascia layers, which helps increase blood flow as well as loosen the affected tissue. These modalities allow for better adjustments as well as longer holding of the adjustments.
