Services I provide

Acupuncture -  Acupuncture is a great way to support your overall system, and ease your symptoms. These symptoms are messengers teaching us what your body needs. It is a way to establish mental and emotional balance. Using a very gentle technique, I will insert needles into specific points to balance and move energy (qi) along the channels (pathways) in your body.

The World Health Organization has determined acupuncture to be effective for treating many disease processes. To see a detailed list, please go to our QUESTIONS page. 

The initial 1.5 hour intake for Acupuncture includes a conversation regarding your health history, a physical assessment, and an acupuncture treatment. The intake is $125. Follow up treatments are 1 hour for $85.

 Facial Rejuvenation  -Facial Rejuvenation is a series of treatments that supports the whole body. It helps eliminate fine lines, soften deeper wrinkles, tone and nourish facial muscles, and enhance complexion and skin texture.  It improves digestion, the immune system and circulation, allowing more nutrients to nourish our skin. Every facial rejuvenation treatment includes facial cupping and gua sha to stimulate collagen and elastin. With advance training and a certification in facial rejuvenation, this protocol is done as a 12 week series, one treatment per week. Each treatment is 1.5 hour, for $150. 

Chinese Herbs - Herbs are an excellent way to maintain the momentum of your acupuncture treatments and help keep your body on track between treatments.  Price depends on the formula.

Moxa, Cupping, Gua Sha and Chinese Dietary Therapy are all available and included in the treatment when determined to be appropriate to the case. 

Moxabustion - Moxa is an herb that we use that comes from the mugwort plant (Artemisia Vulgaris). Burning moxa cones on acupuncture points, or using a moxa stick over specific areas is very warming and relaxing. The burning moxa does not touch the skin. It is moved away once the area feels warm.  It tonifies the qi and nourishes the blood, bringing fresh nutrients to areas of pain or stagnation. 

Cupping - Cupping creates reverse pressure on the body’s tissues gently pulling stagnation and toxins to the surface and letting the body release them. It’s good for anyone with muscle tension or old injuries that need stimulation to recover. 

Chinese Dietary Therapy -  If you are interested we can discuss the foods that are best for nourishing your individual constitution.  I am happy to encourage you in a healthy dietary lifestyle, with simple tips to help you integrate small changes that can make a big difference in the long term. 

 Gua Sha - Gua Sha is a style of East Asian therapy that improves circulation and the properties of the immune system. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that is helpful for relieving pain and stiffness, as well as being effective for internal organ disorders.
