chinese acupuncture

Chinese Acupuncture

Sterile, disposable, hair-thin needles are inserted at specific locations throughout the body to resolve imbalances and restore health.



Special herbs are burned at various points on the body, either on the head of the needle or with a moxa pole, to further stimulate and support the energy in that area.



Small electrodes are attached to acupuncture needles to provide gentle stimulation to particular acupuncture points (similar to a TENS machine).



A therapeutic massage technique using a Chinese soup spoon that is strongly stimulating and moving. Gua Sha is particularly helpful to relieve tension in tight muscles.



Another powerful technique to address stubborn pain conditions, similar to those addressed by Gua Sha.
