Balance Your Body
Acupuncture is a branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine - an established form of health care that has been in use for over 2,000 years.
The focus of treatment is on the individual, not the illness, and all symptoms are seen in relation to each other. Acupuncture not only provides pain relief but also enables the body to use its own healing power to restore health and well-being. Acupuncture can be beneficial for a variety of health conditions including headache, insomnia, gastrointestinal disorders, infertility and women's health issues.
CHINESE HERBAL THERAPY
Balance, Strengthen, Nourish
Herbal therapy is a vital element of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been used for centuries for both chronic and acute conditions including fatigue, stress/anxiety, arthritis, insomnia, headache, menopausal syndrome, digestive disorders, and more. The practice uses a variety of substances including roots, flowers, seeds and barks in a tailor-made formula designed for you and your needs. And fear not! All substances are safe (distributors follow Good Manufacturing Process), free of toxins/heavy metals, and always ethically sourced. Contact to schedule an appointment.
Heal And Recover
Cupping involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic jars on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air in order to enhance circulation, help relieve pain, remove "heat" and release toxins that linger in your body's tissues.
Cupping has grown in popularity throughout the West, and its use is often seen in Olympic athletes and celebrities on the red carpet.
This therapy can be used on patients with a variety of ailments including: colds, flu, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, allergies, and fevers.
Rest, Relax & Rejuvenate
Cosmetic Acupuncture, often called Facial Rejuvenation or Facial Acupuncture has been in use since the 7th century and is a non-surgical technique used to reduce the signs of aging while improving overall health. This holistic approach to beauty helps to heal and repair damage to your body and skin, resulting in renewed vitality. Facial acupuncture helps to alleviate wrinkles, fine lines, puffiness, sagging, and skin discoloration while simultaneously supporting health and well-being.
Cosmetic acupuncture tightens pores, improves muscle tone, and increases collagen production. Tiny, thin needles are inserted into specific locations on the face and body to improve local circulation of blood and lymph and stimulate the body’s natural processes of healing and cell regeneration.

She has been in practice since 2011 and has used acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to successfully treat a variety of conditions including: pain, digestive disorders, insomnia, anxiety/depression, women’s health issues, and infertility.

DOES IT HURT?
No. Acupuncture needles are so fine, about as thin and flexible as a human hair, that most people don’t feel them being inserted. The majority of people feel deeply relaxed while the needles are in place, which can continue well after they are removed.
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE WORK?
Acupuncture is proven to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and decrease pain and stress to stimulate your body’s own natural healing mechanism. It can also regulate the nervous system and stimulate the release of endorphins and opioids in the brain. The traditional explanation is that acupuncture works by affecting Qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital energy to restore balance and wellness to the body.
DOES IT WORK?
Yes, acupuncture has been around for thousands of years for one reason: it works. It is one of the fastest growing fields in health care due to its continued success in reducing stress, improving energy, and relieving pain. What doesn't work, doesn't last.
