ACUPUNCTURE SERVICES

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is one of the primary treatment modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Needles are placed in specific points along acupuncture meridians to correct underlying imbalances, reduce pain, and promote blood flow.

Acupuncture meridian theory is informed by the concept of “Qi” flow through channels or pathways in the body. These meridians are a vast network that function to transport vital nutrients and fluids throughout the body. Acupuncture needles are used to promote optimal flow through meridians to ensure the body stays in balance and functions properly.

CUPPING

Cupping is a traditional Chinese Medicine therapy that is used to help relieve muscular tension, reduce inflammation, and promote blood circulation.

It is very similar to a deep tissue massage, but rather than kneading down into the muscles, suction is used to draw the muscle, tissue, and fascia up into the cup and manipulate it.

Cupping helps to break up muscular adhesions and stagnation of blood in the tissues which has an immediate effect on muscle tightness and inflammation. It’s a great tool to aid in muscle recovery for people who lead active or athletic lifestyles or those who carry tension and stress in their body.

Cupping can also be used to draw out heat, pathogens, & toxins that are trapped in the tissues to flush them out of the body. This provides immune support and aids in the body’s natural detoxification process.

It may look intense or painful but the majority of people who experience it find it relaxing and helpful. Not sure about acupuncture? That’s okay! Find out what all the buzz is about and book a 30-minute cupping session today.

HERBAL MEDICINE

Our modern lifestyles are harsh. Between stress, our modern diets, and the burden of environmental toxins placed on our bodies, it has never been more important to ensure we have proper protective measures in place. This is best done through nutritional supplementation and supporting our body’s detoxification processes.

Herbs and nutrition are some of the best tools to help support our body’s ability to maintain a strong immune system, a well-balanced gut, and healthy metabolism.

Chinese herbs are powerful because they balance our body chemistry from the ground up. Herbal Medicine has been used for thousands of years across many cultures to address health concerns.

Herbs work to create sustainable and long term change with little to no side effects. Licensed practitioners of Chinese Medicine are the only practitioners of herbal medicine in the United States who are nationally-board certified. The training required to become a licensed Chinese herbalist is the most extensive herbal education available. It requires a 4 years Masters Degree which includes training in pharmacology, modern drug and herb interactions, and drug safety.
