Humans have evolved complex systems that keep the body functioning properly. Over the long-term, imbalances occur naturally from lifestyle, diet, and injuries. Unchecked, more persistent health issues can manifest as symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, fatigue, a cough, poor sleep, allergies, digestive issues, muscle spasms, etc. The goal of acupuncture is to eliminate symptoms and correct any underlying dysfunctions by bringing the body into energetic balance and enable the body's own healing mechanisms. Acupuncture is effective for pain elimination and restoring health. No matter the symptom, we take a holistic approach and implement corrective measures from the ground up. Benefits of regular acupuncture include decreased pain, improved sleep and energy, stress relief, and enhanced mood.
Sterile and disposable needles are always used.
Every muscle and organ is surrounded by connective tissue called fascia. This fascia surrounds us like saran wrap and helps give our body structure. When fascia is dehydrated or inflamed, our muscles can stick to one another causing pain and limited mobility. The negative pressure provided by suction cupping relieves spasms and adhesions and helps loosen the muscles by physically separating this fascia. This promotes oxygenation of the tissue, improving circulation and as a result, detoxifies the body. Marks may appear on the body and the darkness and intensity show how much toxicity has built up. They can take 3-10 days to fade depending on the strength and energy of the individual. Cupping is often used to alleviate back and neck pain, but can be also used for anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and insomnia. It is also great for symptoms of common cold, cough, and asthma.
Tui Na is a form of Chinese medical massage. Tui means to “to Push” and Na means “to Lift and Squeeze”. A medical massage focuses on a medical need. It is often used to manage pain, reduce inflammation, improve circulation, relieve nerve compression, improve digestion, increase flexibility or treat other health care concerns. Gentle pediatric Tui Na is a way to unblock channels in infants and toddlers for digestive and sleep issues.
