Many of my patients haven’t had acupuncture before, and I empathize with patients who have a fear of needles. I use a gentle method to allow your body to adjust to the needles before balancing your qi, so you leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.

Fire Cupping is an ancient East Asian medical procedure that has immediate health benefits. Specialized glass cups are placed on acupuncture points along the back corresponding to the organ systems. This treatment is very relaxing and soothing.
What are the benefits of Fire Cupping?
- Loosens up your tight, sore muscles and fascia surrounding the muscle fibers

Gua Sha is an Eastern Medicine treatment that has been used throughout Asia for centuries. Gua means to rub or press-stroke. Sha is a term that describes the blood congestion in surface tissue in areas where the patient may experience stiffness and pain. Sha is also the term for the small red dots (petechiae) that are raised from applying Gua Sha. When Gua press stroking is applied in repeated even strokes, Sha appears and the pain immediately shifts. In minutes the small red dots fade into a red flush. The Sha disappears totally in two to three days after treatment. The color of Sha and rate of fading can indicate important information about a patient’s condition. Pain relief lasts even after the Sha is completely gone.

- Helps your body regulate temperature, while relaxing tension and reducing anxiety.
