Services I provide

Acupuncture -  Acupuncture is a great way to support your system, and ease your symptoms. These symptoms are messengers teaching us what your body needs. It is a way to establish mental and emotional balance. Using a very gentle technique, I will insert needles into specific points to balance and move energy (qi) along the channels (pathways) in your body.

The World Health Organization has determined acupuncture to be effective for treating many disease processes. To see a detailed list, please go to our QUESTIONS page. 

The initial intake for Acupuncture is $125.
This is a 1.5 hour conversation, comprehensive exam, and treatment combination where we will discuss your health history, and you will experience your first treatment.

Follow up 1 hour treatments are $85. 

Facial Rejuvenation  - Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture requires extra training and a certification.  This series of treatments supports the whole body. It improves digestion, the immune system, and circulation. The better we digest our food, the more nutrients are available to nourish our skin. Improved circulation allows oxygenated blood to flow in with fresh nutrients and take away waste.

Every facial rejuvenation treatment includes facial cupping and gua sha, increasing circulation to the face and leaving you glowing.

12 weekly treatments are suggested to see your best results. Each Facial Rejuvenation treatment is 1.5 hours, for $145Packages are available.

Chinese Herbs - Herbs are an excellent way to maintain the momentum of your acupuncture treatments and help keep your body on track between treatments. I can create a custom formula for you, tuned to your specific needs. We also have pre-made formulas available in the office.  Price depends on the formula.

Moxa, Cupping, Gua Sha and Chinese Dietary Therapy are all available and included in the treatment when determined to be appropriate to the case. 

Moxabustion - Moxa is an herb that we use that comes from the mugwort plant (Artemisia Vulgaris). Burning moxa cones on acupuncture points, or using a moxa stick over specific areas is very warming and relaxing. The burning moxa does not touch the skin. It is moved away once the area feels warm.  It tonifies the qi and nourishes the blood, bringing fresh nutrients to areas of pain or stagnation. 

Cupping - Cupping creates reverse pressure on the body’s tissues gently pulling stagnation and toxins to the surface and letting the body release them. It’s good for anyone with muscle tension or old injuries that need stimulation to recover. 

Chinese Dietary Therapy -  If you are interested we can discuss the foods that are best for nourishing your individual constitution.  I am happy to encourage you in a healthy dietary lifestyle, with simple tips to help you integrate small changes that can make a big difference in the long term. 

Gua Sha - Gua Sha is a style of East Asian therapy that improves circulation and the properties of the immune system. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that is helpful for relieving pain and stiffness, as well as being effective for internal organ disorders.
