Traditional East Asian Medicine is a holistic approach to health and wellbeing. In addition to acupuncture, your practitioner may also use additional modalities during your treatment, including bodywork (massage, Shiatsu, Sotai), herbal prescriptions, and diet and lifestyle recommendations. This multifaceted approach empowers our patients to make progress both during their treatments as well as outside of the treatment room.
Thin needles are inserted at different points on the body to correct imbalances, improve the natural flow of energy (called “qi”), stop pain and enhance the body’s ability to heal.
Glass bulbs are suctioned and maneuvered over certain areas. Often used to reduce muscle tension, increase blood flow, and help with respiratory issues, including asthma and pneumonia.
Long utilized to strengthen the system and promote longevity, specific herbs are heated over certain acupuncture points.
Natural herbal remedies are prescribed to enhance the overall effects of treatment. Herbs are also highly effective as a stand-alone remedy.
Diet and Lifestyle
Diet and lifestyle are key components to health and the prevention of illness. Clear guidelines empower our patients to play a central role in their own healthcare and wellness. This enhances progress both during treatments and outside of the treatment room.
