Benefits of cupping include:  

  • Increased circulation 

  • Relaxation

  • Removal of congestion in muscles and joints

  • Decreased fibrosis and adhesions in tissues 

  • Increased metabolism and healing

Cupping can be used for a variety of conditions such as:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries

  • Myofascial conditions

  • Fibromyalgia and chronic pain

  • Abdominal motility

  • Scar release

  • Whiplash

  • TMJ disorders

  • General relaxation & detoxification

Cold Laser Therapy

(15-30 Minutes)

​Low Level Laser Therapy uses the transmission of light energy into the body's cells to affect tissue regeneration, inflammation and pain transmission. This transmission of energy speeds up the body's repair processes allowing for quicker recovery times from injuries such as:​

  • Acute injuries (ie.contusions, sprains, strains and fractures etc.)

  • Chronic conditions (ie. tendinitis, bursitis, thoracic outlet, trigger points etc.)

  • Headaches

  • Neurological conditions

  • Chronic pain

LiteCure Class IV Laser

(5-15 Minutes)​

The Lightforce pro class IV level laser works by flooding the tissues with light energy, energizing the damaged cells and increasing circulation to the painful area. This produces a cascade of healing responses in your body, reducing inflammation, thereby reducing or even eliminating your pain.



Because the Class IV laser reaches deep into the tissues, it is ideal for treating sprains and strains, arthritis, calcified muscles and fibrotic adhesions, as well as intra-articular tissues inside of the joints. Its far-reaching capabilities also allow the Class IV to achieve results in less time than a cold laser. With treatment times of as little as 5 to 15 minutes, the Class IV laser allows many conditions to vastly improve within a few visits. Oftentimes, patients find immediate, soothing relief that improves with each session.

  • Muscle strains

  • Joint sprains and meniscal injuries
