Acupuncture is a powerful yet gentle treatment that can be used to help the body heal from a variety of health conditions. Most patients agree that acupuncture is painless & extremely relaxing. It is not uncommon for patients to fall asleep as they rest on the treatment table. If you are looking to get out of pain, balance your body & mitigate the effects of stress, acupuncture would be a good therapy for you.
For your treatment, thin, sterile, single-use needles will be used.
Acupuncture can be used to help prevent, maintenance or treat many different ailments, including (but not limited to):
Cupping is a treatment using either glass or plastic cups which are suctioned to the body.
This treatment increases circulation, reduces inflammation and relieves pain.
Cupping can be used alone or in conjunction with acupuncture.
Common uses for cupping include: back pain, asthma, insomnia, digestive disorders and more.
We accept cash, credit, as well as many types of insurance.
