Acupuncture

One of the oldest methods of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is based on the belief that life energy flows throughout the body and affects physical, mental and emotional health. During an acupuncture treatment, energetic pathways within the body are stimulated using the insertion of thin sterile needles at specific points on the body. Acupuncture is used for a variety of therapeutic reasons, from relieving pain to promoting fertility. Acupuncture can help us move through life with more ease, less pain and stress, and greater awareness of ourselves and our well-being.



Trial Auricular Acupuncture

30-minute sessions in a small group setting give someone new to acupuncture the opportunity to listen to an overview of acupuncture by the licensed acupuncturist and try an auricular (ear) acupuncture treatment. Auricular acupuncture is a gentle, yet powerful, approach that treats the whole body by focusing on the acupuncture points of the outer ear.

Auricular Acupuncture for Weight Loss and Addiction 
Are you trying to lose weight, quit smoking or curb another type of addiction? Auricular (ear) acupuncture can be an effective solution. It can aid in the treatment of a variety of health conditions, such as obesity and addiction, while also reducing stress and increasing one’s overall well-being.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Acupuncture facial rejuvenation involves inserting needles into the face and body to help stimulate blood flow, increase collagen production and shed dead skin cells. It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sagging jawlines, acne rosacea and puffiness around the eyes.

Private Acupuncture
Individuals receive care from a licensed acupuncturist in a private room with soothing music, lighting and comfort items like blankets, pillows and bolsters. The privacy and length of appointment allow you to work more closely on issues and receive treatment methods anywhere on the body. Treatment may include cupping, gua sha or electrical stimulation, as appropriate and agreed upon, in addition to acupuncture needles. Once you’ve had private acupuncture you can consider combining private treatments with community treatments for appointments to fit your schedule or for a more cost-effective treatment. 
 
Community Acupuncture
Individuals receive care from a licensed acupuncturist in a group treatment room with soothing music and lighting while fully clothed and seated in a comfortable, recliner chair. Screens between recliners allow for safe distancing and some privacy. Treating the full body can be accomplished by accessing the lower legs, arms, head and neck. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to these areas. Treatments are staggered with that of the others in the room. Some claim that treatment effects are enhanced because of the group setting. You are welcome to bring items that help you relax such as a blanket, pillow, headphones, eye pillow, etc. It is particularly important to arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment to allow the practitioner to stay on schedule. Once you’ve had community acupuncture you can combine community treatments with private treatments to receive recommended therapies that require a private acupuncture treatment session.
