Traditional Acupuncture

We use a specific Style of Traditional Acupuncture called the Balance Method which we find to be superior for pain management and complicated conditions. We look at health as a state of integrated balance where all systems are working as they should. Most patients leave their first treatment with a significant drop in pain. Subsequent treatments are necessary for lasting results. The Balance Method is also great for complicated conditions/mood disorders/stress/hormonal issues and digestion.  Treatments can be developed from range factors including where your pain or condition is, the season, your birth or systemic imbalances.

Motor Point Acupuncture

Motor point acupuncture is the stimulation of motor points—synapses between muscles and motor nerves either by needle alone or with electricity. Stimulation of the motor point produces involuntary twitches in the target muscles, helping to reset dysfunctional muscles and to correct abnormal muscle function. Often this method is used for muscles that are atrophied or inhibited and not responding to traditional physical therapies.

Trigger Point Acupuncture (Dry Needling)

Trigger Point Acupuncture/ dry needling is an indispensable tool in treating myofascial (muscle and fascia) pain. It works by releasing hyperactive trigger points that refer pain across nerve, muscle, and connective tissue in predictable patterns. Dry needling refers to the insertion of very fine acupuncture needles (opposed to an injection) to release these trigger points.  When a trigger point is touched with the needle it slightly twitches and releases.  When trigger points are “deactivated,” through needling they normalize inducing local tissue repair and become less irritable.

Neurofunctional Acupuncture/Electro-Acupuncture

Neurofunctional Acupuncture combines Motor Point, Electro and Traditional Acupuncture targetting both the motor point of the muscle as well as the central and peripheral nervous system through the needling of appropriate spinal segments and distal points.  This can decrease pain by working on the signals sent through both the CNS and the PNS helping with chronic pain that has become patterned into the body.

Cupping/Gua Sha

Cupping is a method that uses suction created by a flame or a suction gun to increase circulation and stretch the tissue. Guasha is a method that uses pressure/scraping with a ceramic or stone tool to achieve the same effect. These methods of therapy are especially effective for pain management and increasing blood and lymphatic flow.

Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy has many benefits including helping with muscle pain, stress management, immune function, headaches, digestive issues, insomnia, fibromyalgia, sports injuries, and anxiety.  You can add CBD oil to any massage service.

Reiki

Reiki a Japanese healing technique administered by the “laying of hands” over specific parts of the body.  The practitioner acts as a conduit for the Reiki energy to flow into distressed areas of the body promoting healing. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit and can create many beneficial effects like relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can enjoy.
