Acupuncture

Used to promote health and treat sickness acupuncture is a time-tested therapy that works by balancing the body’s energies. This is done by inserting fine, virtually painless, single-use sterile needles into specific acupuncture points where they remain as the patient relaxes for up to 45 minutes. This drug-free therapy can be used in conjunction with conventional medicine.

Cupping Therapy
Cupping Therapy

Cupping is a form of therapy where glass cups are suctioned onto the body and left in place or glided around with oil acting and feeling like a deep tissue massage. This therapy increases blood flow to the area, helps to pull out toxins from the body, breaks up adhesions, and relaxes the muscles. This makes it an effective therapy to treat muscle knots, tension, cellulite, colds, and digestive issues and to promote relaxation.

Facial Rejuvenation

Acupuncture

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is not only a safe and effective way to firm up delicate facial skin but the treatment has value beyond beauty. As a holistic whole-body treatment,  this specialized acupuncture protocol balances out hormones and the internal system so patients may also experience better sleep, improved digestion, and regular bowel movements all essential for a youthful appearance.   It is also used for acne, rosacea, and Bell's Palsy.

Also known as cosmetic acupuncture, this minimally invasive needling technique works with the body's natural healing process by building collagen and elastin fibers giving you more youthful-looking skin without surgery or injections.

 

What can be achieved?  Fine lines may be eliminated and wrinkles diminished. Bags under the eyes can be reduced, nasal-labial groove reduced in depth and length, jowls firmed, puffiness eliminated, droopy eyelids lifted and double chins minimized.

Acupressure & Tui Na Massage

Acupressure and Tui Na Massage work on acupuncture points and meridians to free energetic blockages and promote circulation.  A great choice for those wary of needles.  Pressure is applied with the hands, elbows, or with specially designed tools.    

Auricular Acupuncture

auricular (ear) acupuncture

Auricular acupuncture is considered a microsystem, in that the ear is like a microcosm of the whole body.  Meaning one part of the body, the ear, in this case, represents the entire body. Microsystems also appear in foot and hand reflexology, facial acupuncture, and scalp acupuncture.

Heat Therapy & Moxa
Moxa

Sometimes Chinese medicine uses heat to help restore balance in the body. This can be done with the classical approach called moxibustion which uses moxa or mugwort to gently introduce heat into the meridian. The TDP Infrared lamp emits minerals as well as heat, warming the body and increasing blood flow.  

Examining Blood Sample
Live Blood Cell Analysis

Live Blood Cell Analysis (LBCA) is a unique method of observing a snapshot of the cellular health of an individual’s Red Blood Cells (RBCs).  This is done by taking a droplet of blood and examining it under a microscope.  Not only does the consistency and spacing of the blood cells give insight but the quality of the individual red blood cells can be inspected and help identify various imbalances, including the function of the liver, kidneys, and digestive system.  Live Blood Analysis can also help discover deficiencies in iron, folic acid, and vitamin B12.

 

When you come in for a Live Blood Cell appointment you will be asked to not eat for 4 hours prior and to refrain from alcohol for 24 hours before your appointment as well; continuing with your regular water intake.  The tip of your finger will be sanitized and a small prick will be made in the tip and one drop will be put on a slide and examined.  The examination will take place in your presence and a consult where the results, along with your personal history are discussed.  This process will take about 90 minutes and a personalized nutritional and herbal protocol will follow.  When herbal medicine is suggested in tea or tincture form, if it is purchased from the practitioner it is at an additional cost.

 

Live Blood Analysis is preventive medicine; it can help identify imbalance before it leads to disease.  Another benefit is that it is a concrete measure of one’s progress as we can see improvements in cellular life after following the protocol as well as see what needs further attention.  Studying the blood is fascinating as it also shows you something harder to explain.  A vitality; the strength of the spirit, for lack of a better description is an extraordinary tool for individuals passionate about preventative health.
