Acupuncture

Vibrant Health with Acupuncture

Sixteenth century Chinese doctors believed that illness was due to an imbalance of energy in the body. In acupuncture, needles are used to stimulate the body’s 14 major meridians, or energy-carrying channels, to resist or overcome illnesses and conditions by correcting these imbalances and restoring the client’s health and vitality.

Acupuncture Therapies

TDP Mineral Lamp

Enjoy the benefits of our TDP Mineral Therapy Healing Lamp during your acupuncture treatment. The electromagnetic lamp incorporates a mineral plate that is heated to ionize the trace minerals and has been scientifically proven to benefit many conditions. Many clients also enjoy the deep penetrating heat.

Moxabustion

This treatment is the application of heat to acupuncture points through burning an herb called Ai Ye (mugwort) on or near acupuncture points to warm and invigorate the body.

Cupping

Cupping is an alternative way to de-stress, detox and stimulate our immune system. The cupping we use in our practice is a technique practiced for thousands of years in Chinese medicine. By applying suction to specific meridian/acupressure points, it mobilizes stagnant blood flow to help aid and promote healing. It is ideal for many aches, pains and specific ailments. Cupping is also a very effective way of treating cellulite useful in breaking down fatty deposits.

Essential Oils

Application of essential oils during your treatment furthers relaxation.

Stone Therapy

Placement of either hot or cold basalt stones over acupuncture points or other areas can help regulate body temperature and promote balance.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a type of dermal friction where the skin is gently scraped with a tool to stimulate blood circulation, resolve acute illness or injury, and release extra heat or toxins from inside the body.

Tui Na

Tui Na is Chinese medical massage and combines acupressure with various relaxing massage techniques.
