COMMUNITY

ACUPUNCTURE

CURRENTLY NOT OFFERED DUE TO COVID-19
Getting back to the roots of acupuncture.
Acupuncture is provided in a group setting which keeps costs low and allows for frequent treatments. Community acupuncture is excellent for people on a maintenance plan, although we are happy to help people with chronic or complicated ailments.

MOXIBUSTION

Improves the flow of qi and overall health.
Moxibustion is a technique of burning the herb mugwort (Artemisia Vulgaris) above the skin. Moxibustion has been used in Asia for thousands of years and is frequently performed in combination with acupuncture. The Chinese character for acupuncture translates to "acupuncture-moxibustion." The mugwort herb promotes blood flow, stimulates the flow of "qi" and strengthens overall health.
 

CUPPING

THERAPY

Reverse massage.
Cupping is often described as "reverse massage." Glass or plastic cups are strategically placed on the skin and a suction is created either with fire or a pump. Cupping can help with pain inflammation, promote blood flow, relaxation and general well-being. Most patients report that cupping feels good and there is little to no discomfort.
