YOUR PATH TO WELLNESS
Holistic medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person – mind, body and spirit. Acupuncture utilizes therapies to prevent and treat disease, and most importantly, to promote optimal health. I invite you to join me on this wonderful journey of healing.
TREATMENTS WE OFFER
Acupuncture is one aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This ancient technique utilizes very thin sterile needles on selected points of the body to activate the healing process. Acupuncture has been well researched in modern times and has been shown to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions including:
Pain (Including muscle strain, TMJ, headache, etc.)
Women's Health (Including PMS and Menstrual Disorders)
Herbal formulas are another aspect of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Each formula consists of naturally occurring substances to promote wellness. A formula is selected specifically for each individual based on their own unique needs.
Formulas are often prescribed in capsule or granule form.
Herbal formulas can be prescribed in conjunction with acupuncture and other therapies or on their own.
Cupping treatments in Traditional Chinese medicine are used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Glass or plastic cups are placed along specific points or areas of the body. A slight suction promotes improved circulation, alleviates pain, and can even be helpful in respiratory and digestive health.
