Acupuncture:  Ask for an appointment
      Acupuncture works by inserting fine needles at specific points in the patient’s body. These needles are inserted up to a certain depth under the skin. The concept of how this method works is by finding a balance between the “Chi” or the body’s energy zones.

It is believed that when a person gets sick it is because of an imbalance that has occurred in these zones. By accessing specific points the balance is restored again. Nerves, connective tissues, and muscles are stimulated during this process. The body’s natural pain killer is also stimulated.

Acupuncture is most effective against pain related conditions.

​For example; arthritis, back, neck, knee and shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica.

Acupuncture also has much broader applications beyond pain relief. The World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a wide range of common illnesses including:

Cupping and Gua Sha

     Another set of techniques used in acupuncture to alleviate discomfort and local stagnation are Cupping and Gua Sha. Both are less invasive and can be used to enhance circulation, remove stagnation, help relieve pain and pull toxins from your body’s tissue. You may feel a slight tight sensation in the area of the cup while it stimulates and also relaxes the local area.

Cups can be left in place for 1 to 20 minutes and can cause the skin to temporarily turn a slightly different color, especially if there is an energetic blockage in the area.
