Great for acute or chronic pain, digestive issues, sleep disturbances, stress relief and any health concerns.
Acupuncture is the use of thin, solid, sterilized, one-time use metal needles in specific acupuncture points on the body to rectify any imbalances. These imbalances in the body may cause pain or discomfort, ailments, sleep problems, digestive issues, fatigue or poor mental health. With over 5,000 years of medical use and practice history, acupuncture is a proven holistic alternative for modern day use.
Our body has the power to heal itself. Acupuncture opens the door for our body to do that. Commitment to multiple treatments is very important to achieve desired results.
Fire Cupping dates back to 1,000 BC and works great for muscle pain and discomfort and increasing overall well-being. Fire burns the oxygen within a glass cup to form a suction on the patient's skin. With an oil liniment on the skin, the cup is slid along meridians, from acupuncture point to point or over treatment area. The suction pulls the blood to the top of the skin layer, causing what looks like a bruised effect but not painful, and encourages blood circulation and boosts immunity.
Fire Cupping is incorporated in your Acupuncture with Adjunct Therapies session.
Massage Therapy is one of the oldest therapeutic arts. Manipulation techniques are performed on the soft tissue of the body to reduce stress, inflammation and fatigue while improving circulation and overall well-being.
Chinese Massage -- Tui Na -- is incorporated in your Acupuncture with Adjunct Therapies session.

Gua Sha is a scraping technique used to improve circulation. Tools used can range from porcelain spoon, to coin, to deer antler. With an oil liniment on the skin, the tools is used to scrape the skin, more importantly, the muscles and fascia layer, to release tension, encourage blood circulation and boost immunity. Redness may appear and are used as diagnostic on where problematic areas may be.

What to expect:
Results are greater when an adjunct therapy is combined with acupuncture. Ending your session with fire cupping, massage therapy or gua sha balances the entire body from head to toe, making the session more well-rounded.
Acupuncture is not an one-time treatment for many issues, especially if you are experiencing chronic issues. Patients report symptoms reduced after the first few treatments but it takes more subsequent sessions for the body to adjust. It is important to make a commitment to your health and wellness.
Acupuncture and any adjunct therapy has a cumulative effect. The more treatments, the more responsive and lasting results. If the time between sessions is too far apart, the body will return to its imbalanced state and we may have to work through those barriers again.
Frequency of Treatments:
Frequency of treatments will be discussed at your first visit. For chronic and acute issues, it is most beneficial if patients receive acupuncture 2-3 times per week. Traditionally, acupuncture was performed daily so health goals were achieved as quickly as possible. Health goals are obtainable with weekly sessions, but may take a few months. Frequency of treatments will then decrease to weekly sessions, then to every 2 weeks, then to monthly or seasonal maintenance.
Every patient is different. Most see favorable results with your first visit and more substantial results in 4-8 treatments. Some may need 20+ treatments for more complicated cases. Your practitioner will discuss the recommended treatment plan with you.
We suggest patients to restrict the amount of physical and mental activity for the remaining of the day and to go home to rest after the session. Remember to stay hydrated.
