Acupuncture is an effective medical treatment that has been used to alleviate and prevent illnesses for over three thousand years. Our practitioners use a non-invasive method to effectively address a wide range of acute or chronic conditions and promote overall well-being.
Cupping is the inverse of massage. Instead of pressing into muscles, the cups pull upward creating a gentle suction. As a soothing and relaxing therapy, cupping improves blood flow to the tissues, reduces pain and tension, and decreases inflammation.
Chinese Herbal Medicine combines various plants, minerals, and other natural substances into therapeutic herbal formulas. Given as teas, powders, capsules, or granules, they support and enhance our bodies response to illness, pain, and emotional distress.

What to Expect as a New Patient
We want to get to know you and how you responds to your treatments. As a new patient, you will have two visits about 3-5 days apart.
These first couple visits are diagnostic appointments to help the practitioner understand how you respond to the treatments.
We will go over your treatment plan at your third appointment. We will discuss your goals and number of treatments — as well as cost — to help determine the best treatment plan for you.
Your treatments may include herb supplements, cupping, muscle work, and other additional therapies to provide you exceptional care.
Acupuncture takes time. As you have additional treatments, you will find that you’ll be able to relax more and will experience greater benefits from the therapy.
