use your body’s own intelligence to cultivate harmony and healing
Chinese Medicine is an ancient science that originated approximately 3,000 years ago. It includes a myriad of therapies such as acupuncture, herbal medicine, and cupping. Chinese medicine uses the innate intelligence of the body to redirect the body’s energy (Qi) – your human body is basically a genius who, when in optimal balance, knows exactly how to organize and sort each cell, hormone, and nerve signal to create a functioning magical being: you!
What is acupuncture?
How does acupuncture work?
An excess can be thought of as a stagnation or a “stuck-ness.” When too much stagnation is accumulated in one spot, the energy cannot flow freely. The needle in this case would be a signal to the body to move what is stuck. A deficiency, on the other hand, is a lack of Qi or nourishment in a certain spot. In this case, the needle gives a signal to the body that this is the squeaky wheel, and it needs some grease, some get-up-and-go!

Lifestyle & Herbal Consultation
[60 minutes] $75
Lifestyle and herbal recommendations are included in acupuncture treatments, but they can be a separate service if you are not interested in receiving acupuncture, or if you just want to dip a toe into the realm of Oriental Medicine. Most any ailment can be improved with nutrition and lifestyle tweaks, while in some cases herbal prescriptions can be the most pivotal aspect of healing.
