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 techniques and therapies that may be included in your customized session for no additional fee.
(Based on individual need and time allowance)
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. Essentially, this is acupuncture without the needles. 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.
Cupping is the use of suction cups to bring tension and toxins to the surface of the skin from deep layers. Great for back 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.
BODYWORK + MASSAGE
Pain, tension, and physical imbalances can be disruptive and interfere with even the simplest of every day activities. Our massage therapists have decades of experience and are adept at treating a wide range of different types of pain in the body, leading to a better quality of life.
We offer various forms of bodywork and massage:
Similar to "sports massage," this specialized style focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue using techniques such as trigger-point therapy, myofascial release, and other techniques that will be customized based on your needs. Great for recurrent or chronic pain that has lasted days, months, or years, as well as chronic conditions such as sciatica, migraines, plantar fasciitis, TMJ, bursitis, post-injury, as well as improvement of muscular performance, range of motion, and postural correction. May requires a series of follow-up treatments in order for improvement and lasting results.
Neuromuscular bodywork is offered exclusively by our therapist, Jeries.
Experience relaxation and gentle stress relieving Western-style massage therapy that is focused on your concerns or current health conditions. Great for general tension, stress or stiffness, as well as chronic pain conditions and improving blood flow.

This type of massage is offered exclusively by our therapist, Gina.
Fertility massage is a complimentary therapy to enhance your own body's natural ability to conceive. Whether it be in conjunction with acupuncture, if you are having difficulties conceiving, or to help induce conception. It allows movement of congested lymph fluid and increases blood flow to the uterus, nourishing the entire reproductive system. It also provides physical balance to your body as a whole, as it balances Qi and relieves stress, which can hinder conception.
Fertility massage is offered exclusively by our therapist, Gina.

Our acupuncture is based on a more emotional and mindful perspective than most clinics, as we incorporate meditation techniques and mindset training within each acupuncture treatment to heighten your awareness of self.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, energy is defined as "Qi," and Qi is key to the flow of vitality in the physical body and contributes to optimal wellness. Stagnated Qi can lead to physical symptoms in the body, such as pain or illness, and can also attribute to the feeling of being "stuck," or feeling out of tune with your emotions. The aim is ensure proper flow of your Qi as preventative and longevity medicine through the use of energy work in tandem with acupuncture and additional modalities. Each of our acupuncturists bring their own unique and individual style of intuitive energy work to the table, which can prompt deeper healing beyond just the physical. This approach of blending energy work with physical therapies makes for inspiring and therapeutic sessions. > Book here
