Acupuncture is a system of healing and pain relief through the insertion of small needles in strategically located points on the body. Needling these pressure points relieves inflammation and constraint, while improving the flow of blood and energy in nearby tissues and throughout the whole body. This can help your body function better (improved sleep, digestion, clarity of thought, higher energy, and much more), and helps to eliminate pain, either acute or chronic.

Acupuncture needles are many times smaller than conventional needles that are used in vaccinations and blood drawing. Most acupuncture needles are not felt when being inserted, and are many times less painful than standard needles. Acupuncture is praised within the medical community for having virtually no side effects and offering a safe and gentle therapeutic method in healing the body.

This virtually painless treatment helps conditions like back pain, greatly loosening the outer tissues that constrain and cause pain and stiffness. Furthermore, this allows toxins trapped in the fascial layer to be drawn to the surface, to be gently expelled by the body. This treatment modality is effective and safe, able it be applied to most people.


Moxibustion or moxa for short is the warm infusion of direct heat into the body. Moxa is used for people and conditions who are marked by deficiencies and chronic illness. This is done with burning dried mugwort herb directly onto the skin on strategically located pressure points. The closer the herb burns to the skin, generally the more effective it is in strengthening the body and its tissues. The burning of the herb usually does not result in charring or burning of the skin. We use moxibustion to help heal and strengthen any patient who may benefit by this treatment.

Massage Therapy
