Experience the Healing Benefits of Acupuncture
Allow me to help you find balance within your mind, body, and soul through Acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
How It Works
Fill out your detailed health history when scheduling your appointment and come to your Acupuncture appointment prepared to discuss your current concerns.
Arrive to your scheduled Acupuncture appointment on time wearing loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that can be easily rolled above your elbows and knees.
Relax and enjoy your appointment as you begin to experience the wonderful benefits that Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have to offer you.
Acupuncture Services & Prices
In your first visit we will spend a full 90 min together going over your health history, developing a treatment strategy, and completing your first Acupuncture treatment.
Your return visits will be a 60 min treatment session where we go over any changes in your health or lifestyle, as well as anything new you'd like to discuss. Then we move forward with your Acupuncture treatment.
For those with a hectic schedule, I also offer 30 min mini sessions. We will have a very brief intake and then jump right into your Acupuncture treatment.
Adjunct Treatment Modalities
If and when it fits your diagnosis and treatment principle, I may include some adjunct treatment modalities during your Acupuncture session to best serve you and your overall health.
Note: I do NOT offer these as stand alone treatments for patients.
Herbal medicine consultation
I have an in-house herbal pharmacy where I can formulate herbs to best fit your needs. Herbal
formulas can cost around $40 per month or less for on-going therapies.
Moxibustion / Moxa
Moxa is a heat therapy that helps to warm the meridians and can help with blood circulation,
digestive issues, gynecological conditions, immune system, and more.
Cupping helps to increase blood circulation, relieve muscular pain and tension, increase muscle
recovery speed, and promote relaxation. Depending on the type of cupping and your body, you
may see red or purplish circles where the cups were placed. These marks may last up to 10 days.
Some light use of massage may occur during your treatment to help promote relaxation, increase
blood flow, and reduce pain.
Gua Sha is not only great for your face, but with the right tool it can be used most places of the
body to help remedy muscular or fascial pain and increase blood circulation.
In addition to using Acupuncture needles to stimulate points, I may also use Acupressure to do so.
Herbal Liniments are topical herbal formulas that can be used for wide range of conditions including
skin, muscle, connective tissue, and bone.
Essential oil therapy
Essential oils are a great way to enhance your treatment, boost your mood, and promote relaxation.
heat & Light therapy
Heat & Light therapy are wonderful ways to augment your treatment and help you feel your best.
dietary & lifestyle coaching
Through my own health journey, my studies, and my experience as a practitioner, I have developed
many dietary and lifestyle skills to help coach you toward feeling your best.
