If you feel that your elimination system is lacking in some way, or you are suffering any of these conditions, now is the time to clean out your accumulated toxins. We spend a lot of time cleaning all the other aspects of our lives, from our homes, to our cars, to our clothes. Why not our bodies? When was the last time, if ever, you cleaned out your elimination system?

One of the fastest growing and popular ways to go about detoxification process is by means of acupuncture. The acupuncture process for detoxification is usually done by inserting small needles into certain areas of the ear by trained acupuncturists. The goal is to help speed up the body’s ability to get rid of built up toxins. Another treatment modality used in Chinese Medicine is cupping therapy. Cupping stimulates your skin and the underlying muscles while encouraging the discharge of built up toxins in the body. This modality also increases blood circulation and the lymph vessels to those areas.
