Acupuncture involves the use of tiny, sterile and single-use needles to stimulate points that make up meridians and/or muscle groups that are interconnected to organ systems and all components of body and mind.  It is a traditional component of East Asian medicine and is commonly practiced with a variety of other bodywork, nutritional and herbal therapies.  East Asian medicine & acupuncture is an effective way to treat a wide range of issues including:

  • Asthma & Allergies
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Detoxification
  • Digestive Issues
  • Pain Management
  • Stress & Fatigue
  • and much more.

By stimulating innate healing responses, acupuncture is one element of traditional East Asian medicine that helps correct imbalances in the body/mind for prevention and healing.  Traditional East Asian medicine addresses the underlying source of the condition as well as symptoms, yielding more holistic health care and often longer-lasting relief.  Commonly, our acupuncture treatments include one or more of the following modalities along with Classical meridian acupuncture from Chinese, French-Vietnamese and Japanese traditions, however, these modalities may also be practiced on their own depending on the case.

Cupping – The use of glass cups to create a small area of low air pressure next to the skin gently pulling muscles upward to loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system.

Gua Sha – Repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edge to increase circulation in deeper tissues or for longer-lasting relief.

Electro-magnetic – The Pachi Pachi device, designed by Master Kawai, is used with diode rings or chains in conjunction with triple bypass or regular ion pumping cords in Japanese style treatments to help promote electromagnetic ion flow for healing injured or inflamed areas.

Moxibustion – Heat therapy to warm regions and acupuncture points to stimulate circulation through the points and inducing a smoother flow of blood and energy.

Myo-fascial Trigger Point Release – Treatment of pain and restriction of motion by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Tui Na – Traditional East Asian massage work that incorporates acupressure techniques along with herbal liniments to target specific medical conditions.
