Acupuncturist Consultation
Each treatment is for 1 hour.  The first consultation will primarily consist of a detailed case history with some acupuncture.  Further appointments are still 1 hour, however, the focus will be on the acupuncture treatment with a short update of how you are so I can assess if we need to adapt the treatment. 

Electroacupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated. Electroacupuncture uses two needles at a time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously, usually for no more than 30 minutes at a time.

Electro-acupuncture is particularly good for pain relief and tension and I often use this treatment for musculo skeletal conditions.

Massage Therapy

Tui Na

Tui Na is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, fire cupping, Chinese herbalism, tai chi, and qigong.Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist and martial arts principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into balance. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll/press, and rub the areas between each of the joints,known as the eight gates, to attempt to open the bodys defensive (wei) chi and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles.The practitioner can then use range of motion, traction, and massage, with the stimulation of acupressure points. These techniques are claimed to aid in the treatment of both acute and chronic musculoskeletal conditions, as well as many non-musculoskeletal conditions.


Holistic Health


Cupping therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. The Chinese have been doing this since ancient times by using heat inside glass or bamboo cups. The vacuum inside the cups causes the blood to form in the area and help the healing in that area.  This treatment is offered in conjunction with Acupuncture.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine, which involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles into the acupuncture points on the face. This superficial insertion will increase the local circulation to the face and stimulate collagen production, which will fill out the lines and give firmness to the skin for a healthy, glowing complexion.
