Personalized Acupuncture Sessions
Each acupuncture session is tailor-made for each individual and may include other modalities which can be used in conjunction with the acupuncture or for those that may not want to be needled as a stand alone treatment.
Acupressure: Application of pressure to stimulate acupuncture points to achieve a therapeutic response.
Aromapoint therapy: Use of essential oils (essential oils are distillation of plant extracts) placed on acupuncture points to treat minor conditions such as sprains and strains to deeper issues such as depression, fatigue and hormonal imbalances.
Aromatherapy works by causing the limbic system (which is responsible for controlling heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, regulating hormones and response to stress) to respond when a person smells a particular smell as well as work on a cellular level as the oil is absorbed by the skin.
Moxabustion: An application of heat using a small amount of an herb called moxa placed on an acupuncture point, creating a deep warmth that builds qi and blood.
Gua Sha: Rubbing or pressing of the skin to help release fascia and help with musculoskeletal conditions.
Cupping: Uses suction created by air or heat applied along the skin to stimulate flow of energy.
