Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of tiny, disposable, sterile needles. Acupuncture points are selected in order to regulate the vital energies of the body. What do we mean by regulate? Many health problems manifest as excess or deficient, with symptoms of heat, cold, dryness, excess phlegm or fluids, stagnation, or pain. Acupuncture treats symptoms while getting to the root of the problem as well. This can eliminate pain and restore balance and harmony, as well as the body’s ability to heal itself—ultimately leading to optimal health and well-being. Click Here to schedule an appointment today! 

Topical treatments such as fire-cupping, gua sha, and the use of moxa (aka the herb artemis vulgaris or mugwort) are used in conjunction with acupuncture. Cupping and gua sha are topical treatments of deep seated obstructions within the muscles and adjacent tissues to help eliminate pain, expand movement, improve blood circulation, and improve organ function.
