About Our Treatments
Acupuncture is the technique of inserting thin, metal needles into specific points on the body for therapeutic effect. Practitioners use acupuncture for relief and prevention of pain and for a variety of health conditions, including musculoskeletal pain, chronic headaches, arthritic conditions, anxiety disorders and depression, Parkinson’s, stroke rehabilitation, asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic heart disease, digestive, gynecological and urogenital problems, and addictions (alcohol, tobacco, drugs).
Cosmetic acupuncture treatment uses super-fine needles to target underlying health issues that may be contributing to a deficient facial appearance. The needles are placed into problem areas on the face and neck, such as wrinkles or acne scarring, to promote nutrient-rich blood flow, stimulate muscle activity and toning, and encourage collagen growth, which all contribute to a more youthful and healthy-looking appearance.
Massage is the manipulation of soft body tissues (muscles, connective tendons and ligaments) to enhance well-being. It’s effective for conditioning, stress, improved circulation and other health issues.
Reiki technique channels energy into the patient by means of touch to activate natural healing processes. It’s effective in restoration of physical and emotional well-being.
Tui na is a form of massage and acupressure using rhythmic compression techniques to break down scar tissue, relax muscles and tendons, and open the energy pathways. Tui na is effective in treating trauma and injury by clearing the energy pathway for improved circulation and to speed up the healing process.
