ACUPUNCTURE – INITIAL EVALUATION & TREATMENT
Dr. Angelina Nagassar will do a thorough intake and assessment. Then she will form a treatment plan to address any issues that you may have. This session is custom to your needs. Dr. Nagassar will go over your medical history and your concerns to create an acupuncture plan for you. She will then use a variety of tools and techniques including acupuncture on particular points of the body. Most patients need more than one session, so after the initial appointment returning patients can see her for a Follow-Up Acupuncture Session.
FOLLOW-UP ACUPUNCTURE TREATMENT
After a patient has seen Dr. Angelina Nagassar for their Initial Acupuncture Evaluation & Treatment they can see her for follow-up appointments to continue treatment. These are 45 minutes long and to treat the initial complaint or remaining symptoms.
MEDICUPPING / CUPPING
30 Minute Session
Vacuum Therapy or Cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment remaining favored by millions of people worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable, and remarkably effective for many health disorders. This session is specifically to address scar tissue and pre/post-surgery of a specific body part.
Cupping, or static cupping, is more like what is pictured to the right. Where it is similar to the above Medicupping but manual/static and the cups stay where the LMT places it and it pulls up the muscle and circulation but is more likely to leave suction marks or what appears to be similar to ‘bruising’.
Our Acupuncturist, Dr. Angelina Nagassar, offers two kinds of cupping. She offers the same cupping as above, the static cupping, and a variation of it called Fire Cupping. It is used with glass cups and flame to produce the natural suction from the heat of the flame. There is no burning or flame to the skin, just placed within the glass cup then the cup is placed on the skin to be lifted and suctioned gently into the glass cup.
– EAR SEEDS
30 Minute Session
Dr. Angelina Nagassar will use small band-aid-like stickers holding a small ‘seed’ that will place pressure on acupuncture points to assist in relieving symptoms you have. A quick treatment, where after acupressure seeds are placed you are able to go about the rest of your day.
ACUPUNCTURE & FACIAL COMBO
60 Minute Session
Dr. Angelina Nagassar combines therapeutic acupuncture with relaxing fascial treatment. You will be laid face up on the table and she will cleanse your face with warm towels and facial scrub. Then after your face is cleansed she will place face acupuncture needs on points along the face and allow you to meditate & relax. After your meditation period, Dr. Angelina will remove the fascial acupuncture and apply a serum while massaging out your face with a roller & guasha tools.
