Guasha


Other Modalities - Lauren Warner Acupuncture in Syracuse, Indiana, Fort WayneGuasha is a healing technique that involves the cutaneous stimulation of the skin in strokes using a smooth-edged instrument. The purpose of guasha is to remove blood stagnation, which is considered pathogenic and a cause of pain. This results in increased circulation and metabolic processes, and most importantly improvement of pain, stiffness, or respiratory issues. This technique is excellent for tight muscles and trigger points.

Cupping


Lauren Warner offers Acupuncture, Pain, Chronic Pain, Neck pain, back pain, headache, Stress in Syracuse, Indiana, Fort WayneCupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.

Heat Therapy

Moist hot packs are used to help relax tight muscles and increase blood flow to certain areas of the body.  These hot packs are stored in very hot water (140-160 degrees F) and are wrapped in 6-8 towel layers to protect the skin.  Hot packs are kept on the area anywhere between 5-15 minutes and then removed. It's normal to have some redness on the skin afterwards, but that will subside within a few hours.
