CUPPING

Works for pain, tension, trigger points, muscle stiffness, tension, body detox and respiratory problems like coughing, asthma and lung weakness. Cupping therapy can also be used to recover after an illness and as prevention for stress, tension and even insomnia and headaches.

GUA SHA

A traditional Chinese Medical Treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. It releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing, creating an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This accounts for its effect on pain, stiffness, fever, chill, cough, wheeze, nausea and vomiting etc., and why Gua sha is effective in acute and chronic internal organ disorders. 


MOXABUSTION

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences. Moxa is usually made from the dried leafy material of Chinese mugwort (Artemesia argyi or A.vlugaris), but it can be made of other substances as well.

*At Ommmango Wellness, Gua Sha, Cupping, Moxabustion, Electric Stimulation and Essential Oils are always available for supplemental and therapeutic purposes as needed, during treatment. 


ESSENTIAL OILS

When an essential oil is inhaled, the scent molecules enter the nasal cavity and stimulate the limbic system, a region in the brain that plays a role in emotion and behavior. The molecules also stimulate the nervous system, which helps to regulate heart rate, blood pressure, stress, and breathing. When used topically, the scent molecules are absorbed through the skin and inhaled. The practice of aromatherapy involves the use of highly concentrated, volatile plant oils to promote wellbeing.

*At Ommmango Wellness, Gua Sha, Cupping, Moxabustion, Electric Stimulation and Essential Oils are always available for supplemental and therapeutic purposes as needed, during treatment. 


REIKI TREATMENT

Reiki is a very specific and unique form of energy healing. In a Reiki session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing.
