About Acupuncture 

In the broadest sense, acupuncture is the practice of using thin, sterile, stainless steel needles at specific points on the body that stimulate the central nervous system.  With stimulation, the central nervous system signals the release of chemicals in the muscles, spine, and brain. This biochemical response helps the body heal and promotes physical and emotional well-being.

Acupuncture points are selected according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories that have been utilized for more than 2000 years to treat numerous conditions.  These theories focus on treating the root cause of imbalances in the body.  In addition to acupuncture, TCM utilizes various Asian bodywork techniques (cupping, gua sha, tuina, moxibustion) and Chinese Herbal Medicine to restore balance to the body.

Included Therapies

E-stim (Electro- Stimulation) Acupuncture

E-stim is the modern variation to a traditional therapeutic treatment in which small electrodes are attached to acupuncture points of the body.  A small amount of electricity runs between the electrodes.  The electricity replaces the traditional hand manipulation of the needles.  E-stim is thought to block the biochemicals in the body that cause pain and inflammation.  Adding E-stim to an acupuncture treatment can be helpful in treating chronic and acute pain, promote blood flow to aid in healing, and reduce stress.

Cupping increases circulation to sore, strained or injured tissues and muscles.  Cupping is done with plastic, silicone or glass cups that create suction on the skin. The suction brings fresh blood to an injured area and helps the body heal itself.  This can be done in addition to acupuncture or as a stand alone treatment for pain, soreness, or muscle recovery after a workout.  

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a technique using a smooth stone to scrape the skin.  The scraping brings blood to the surface of the skin to improve circulation, reduce inflammation, disperse toxins, and boost lymphatic drainage.  This technique was traditionally used in treatment during the early stages of the common cold and flu.  Gua Sha is also helpful in relaxing stiff, achy muscles.
