At Five Elephants Acupuncture you pay what you are able based on a sliding scale. We want acupuncture to be the first treatment you think of (instead of the last!) when you are in need of health care. Our services are priced with that aim in mind. Complementary techniques like cupping, moxibustion, gua sha, and electro-stimulation acupuncture are included in your treatment if necessary at no additional cost.
In this treatment, the skin is stimulated by scraping with a smooth-edged tool to produce raised redness or bruising. Gua sha is fantastic for breaking up stagnation and relieving pain. Asthma, bronchitis, colds, fibromyalgia, strains, sprains, and muscle spasms all respond well to gua sha therapy.
This technique uses the same points and treatment principles of acupuncture but offers additional stimulation. Needles are attached to a device that sends a continuous electrical pulse into the body. "E-stim" is used in treating pain, muscle spasms, and neurological issues.
