Acupuncture targets points on the body directly connected to the central nervous system, releasing chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain to increase the body's natural healing abilities.
Jae Woong Lee, Dipl.OM, L.A. has been practicing Acupuncture for over eight years, after studying at the Virginia University of Integrated Medicine. He’s a vital member of the Get Adjusted Chiropractic team, as he specializes in relieving lower back, neck, and shoulder pain through Acupuncture and Cupping.
Cupping is a popular treatment method where a practitioner places specialized cups on a patient’s skin, creating suction to facilitate full-body healing.
Cupping is a safe and non-invasive technique that helps with blood circulation in the localized area, and overall health problems.
Benefits: Cupping is commonly used for back problems, among other general aches and pains. People use cupping for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation, and well-being. It also acts as a type of deep-tissue massage.

Gliding cupping (also known as Dynamic Cupping) is the sliding of cups across the skin with a lubricant. Our practitioner applies oils to dry skin and compresses two cups to create vacuum suction while gliding the cup in a zig-zag, circular, or up-and-down motion. The gliding action will limit the marks left from normal cupping.
How many times should I get cupping? It is safe to perform dynamic cupping 1-3 times per week, for a total of 5-20 minutes. Take a break to restore energy levels.
This method of Acupuncture pierces the skin with slim, solid needles. When the needles are inserted into the skin at specific points in the body, Jae activates a small device that generates electric pulses. This consistent electrical current is adjusted based on the frequency and intensity needed to properly treat the patient. At each insertion point, Jae will insert two needles at the same time so that the electric current can pass between the two points.
Technique similar to Acupuncture also involves gently piercing the skin with slim needles to move energy through the nervous system. Dry Needling places the needles at specific point locations with recommended energy dosage for the patient’s diagnosed condition.
The method of Moxibustion involves heating specific Acupuncture points on the body through the burning of herbs near the skin. Often used simultaneously with Acupuncture, the material "moxa" is an herb derived from mugwort — an herb believed to enhance the movement of Qi, or energy, and blood flow.
