Understanding Acupuncture – Get Started Today

Acupuncture derives as a form and component of traditional Chinese Medicine and has been a regular practice all over the world and was originally developed 4000 years ago. Acupuncture works to balance the meridians and energy pathways throughout your body. This works to identify the area of the body that is off to provide relief. This works to identify the area where the “chi,” your body’s energy, is off balance and restore it! 

How It Works & The Benefits of Acupuncture

Research has shown that when fine needles are applied to specific areas of the body it will send signals to your brain about what is going on in your body. When the needles are placed, they work together to increase blood flow and pressure that can result in a reduction of pain and inflammation. This is why acupuncture is known to aid in successful pain control and endorphin release that allows for a natural healing and serotonin boost.

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Generally, the answer is no. Sensations may vary from person to person, visit to visit, and point to point. Sometimes there is no sensation at all. Sometimes there is a feeling of heaviness, a dull aching or a throbbing sensation. Sometimes there is a sting that quickly goes away or a warm, tingling sensation along the course of the meridian.

I have been having issues with sciatic pain in my back, knee and leg. After 1 visit with acupuncture I noticed a difference in my pain level. I'm looking forward to my next visit! She was very empathetic about my pain and genuinely wanted to help.

I have had an ongoing issue with my shoulder that I have tried many different approaches to resolve with no progress. I had never tried acupuncture and got to the point with this shoulder that it was either try something new or rip my shoulder completely off. Choosing the former as the better option, I started acupuncture with Dr. Dawn just last week. After only 2 visits there is significant improvement in my pain and mobility (this issue has been ongoing over a year). I'm not only impressed but so thankful. I'll be continuing care for full recovery and couldn't be more pleased with the care and service.

My mother has been suffering from plantar fasciitis for a while now. She has tried painful steroid injections, boots, etc without any relief. Slowly but sure she is improving because of Dawn! Acupuncture + deep blue essential oil lotion and she is getting some holistic relief! Thanks, Dawn!

I have neuropathy in both legs and have tried a lot of prescription drug medications for my pain but nothing worked. My massage therapist suggested acupuncture with Dr. Dawn, I was very hesitant because of the "needles"! Acupuncture has done remarkable things for me and the needles are painless. I can now walk without pain because of my monthly acupuncture visits. I would definitely recommend acupuncture therapy to anyone living with pain. Believe me it is well worth it!

Welcome to Our Cupping Therapy Services

At Bliss Wellness, we embrace holistic healing methods to promote wellness and alleviate discomfort. Among our range of therapeutic offerings, cupping therapy stands as a time-honored technique aimed at enhancing your overall well-being.

What is Cupping Therapy?

Cupping therapy is an ancient practice that dates back thousands of years, originating from traditional Chinese medicine. It involves the strategic placement of specialized cups on specific areas of the body to create suction. This suction promotes increased blood flow, relaxation of muscles, and the release of tension.

How Cupping Works

During a cupping session, our trained practitioners apply cups to targeted points on your body. The cups can be made of glass, silicone, or plastic, and they create a gentle suction that draws the skin and superficial muscle layer upward into the cup. This action stimulates circulation, loosens knots, and helps to relieve pain and inflammation.
