Custom treatments tailored to fit your individual health needs.  Many people are surprised to find that Acupuncture treatments are relaxing and often painless. It is not uncommon for patients to take a 20-30 minute nap on the heated treatment table.  Restorative treatments last from 45-60 minutes.

Acupuncture with Wellness Coaching

Acupuncture is widely recognized for pain relief, but it also offers the capacity for deeper understanding of symptoms as the body’s wisdom.  When you understand the language of your symptoms, they become valuable messengers steering you back towards balance.  Wellness Coaching with Acupuncture allows more time to dive into conversation around the mind-body connection inherent in East Asian Medicine, as it relates to your condition.  Anchoring wellness practices such as meditation or qi gong instruction may be offered, as these tools that help get to healing the root of recalcitrant symptoms.  Sessions from 75-90 minutes.

Shiatsu Massage

For those seeking massage alongside pain relief that is anchored in the mind-body principles of East Asian Medicine, shiatsu is an ideal therapy.  Massage sessions are 60 minutes.

Our Acupuncture Philosophy

Being well does not mean never being sick or in pain.  Often symptoms (such as pain) are clues from the body that a change and treatment are needed.  Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help you translate your body’s symptoms into a plan of care.
