ACUPUNCTURE + TCM
We take a modern and intuitive approach to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to help identify root causes of disharmonies in the body. We teach you body awareness and mindset training to help you tune into your mind-body connection. Receive customized care and experience a range of TCM techniques during your session to help get your body back into balanced harmony.
Here are other modalities and therapies that may be included in your customized acupuncture session for no additional fee.
(Based on individual need and time allowance.)
Cupping is the use of suctioned cups to bring tension and toxins to the surface of the skin from deeper layers. Great for muscle pain, asthma, colds, and more. If your body is stagnant, it will leave distinct reddish-purple marks on the area upon which it is administered for 3 days up to a week.
*Available to book a-la-carte.
Gua sha is a gentle scraping of the skin's surface (without breaking the skin) to target muscle tissue where the flow of oxygen and nutrients has been impeded by tension and blockage. Great for back, neck, and shoulder pain. It is also used to strengthen the immune system at the onset of colds.
This technique incorporates the burning of a Chinese herb called Mugwort (Artemesia Vulgaris) over acupuncture points in the body. It opens up acupuncture channels on the body and promotes energy flow where this is stagnation, coldness, or deficiency. This is also commonly used for safe, effective breech baby turns.
Tui Na is simply acupressure, which is the use of hands and fingers on the acupuncture points on the body instead of needles. This is different from massage because the focus is to use acupuncture points and channels to address the patient's root diagnosis. The goal of Tui Na is to release blocked energy and improve flow.
Electroacupuncture stimulates the points linked to your symptoms to enhance the flow of Qi. Two needles are placed around the point while a machine delivers an electrical impulse to them to help increase the healing effects of standard acupuncture.
Conscious nutrition is a foundation for lasting health and well-being. Our acupuncturists will guide you to foods and potential Chinese herbal formulas that are harmonious with your constitution from an Eastern medicine perspective. Foods that do not harmonize with your constitution can worsen a condition or be a contributor to a disease pattern.
