Acupuncture works to activate and balance the movement of fluids, blood and functional energetics within the body. When areas along the acupuncture pathways become clogged or weak, like a traffic jam on a highway or an overpass in need of repair, signs of discomfort or disease may appear.
Chinese Herbal Medicine does the same thing, but works from the inside out with each herb showing an affinity towards certain channel pathways or internal organs. For this reason, herbal medicine is especially effective when combined with acupuncture.
Our custom nutrition and herbal programs restore your foundation of your health and create long-term wellness. We have found that if we support the foundation using whole food supplements, all subsequent therapies (herbal, manual, or acupuncture) are more effective. Each client is unique and recommendations specifically tailored to each individual using supplements only available to healthcare professionals.
Acupressure, Massage, Bodywork
Chinese Therapeutic Massage as taught in Chinese medical schools goes far beyond the expected applications for muscle pain; by working with the body’s pathways as used in acupuncture, Asian Bodywork techniques can treat many internal conditions as well.
Cupping Therapy & Gua Sha
Fire-Cupping or ba guan is a fascinating method of treatment in which a special cup or jar is attached to the skin by suction, and then often moved along the acupuncture pathways. Gua Sha uses special tools to mobilize soft tissues for detoxification and pain relief. Both are especially effective for musculoskeletal conditions, often relieving pain after a single application.
