The needles are fine & generally painless

Acupuncture: As a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with manual therapies (see below), acupuncture is a generally painless and increasingly widely-used way to address a wide variety of health issues. Also truly wonderful? The no-toxin, holistic approach to facial rejuvenation that you can experience via traditional Chinese medicine.

Herbal treatment: Either via external methods (plasters, patches, ointments, and more) or internal (pills, tinctures, teas, and other like), traditional Chinese herbal medicine has lasted for thousands of years because it is effective, can be personalized just for you, and often has fewer side effects than pharmaceutical drugs.

Before your first appointment: Save time by downloading & filling out your intake form.

No-needle healing: Asian bodywork therapy (Chinese-style tui na); cupping; moxibustion; ear seeds; gua sha; and/or Reiki 

Tui na: Most people are familiar with shiatsu or Thai massage…but have you tried Chinese tui na? This is a great modality that is akin to massage but also like having an acupuncture treatment without needles. For stress, fatigue, muscle ache, insomnia, and other ailments…or for fun things like facial rejuvenation, tui na is magical.

HangInThere

From stress to injury and many more stops in between, tui na covers all your bases

Cupping, Gua sha, Moxibustion, Ear Seeds, and/or Reiki

Cupping is a form of deep tissue therapy.  Plastic or glass cups are applied to specific regions of the skin to create suction that restores the flow of blood, fluid, and Qi to restore health and stimulate healing processes.  Either by increasing the suction or by gently moving the cups in a gliding motion, this therapy loosens tight muscles, increases circulation, and draws out stagnant toxins, thereby leaving the body relaxed and rejuvenated.

Gua sha is a traditional Chinese modality in which oiled skin is lightly scraped to produce bruise-like markings (“sha”).  This modality stimulates blood flow, releases heat, and relaxes muscles.

Moxibustion is a type of heat therapy.  Burning herbs are held near the skin to warm and invigorate Qi and to dispel pathogenic influences.  This therapy is excellent for sore muscles and general body aches in particular. (Available only in my South office location).

Ear seeds are a method of auriculotherapy (magnet therapy and acupuncture are others). The external ear has over 200 locations that correspond to organs and areas of the body; by pressing or otherwise stimulating these areas it is possible to boost health and wellness.

Reiki is a no-touch modality that promotes stress reduction and relaxation and supports overall health.  Reiki can be an effective complement to conventional touch therapy care and is useful for anyone who is seeking a calming, gentle, and soothing treatment.
