Tui Na

Tui na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork. Based on the same Oriental medical principles as acupuncture, tui na seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It can also be used to treat internal diseases.


Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction draws superficial tissue into the cup, which may either be left in place or moved along the body. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Traditional cupping, sometimes referred to as “fire cupping," uses heat to create a vacuum-like suction inside of glass cups. In modern times, cups that use a small pump to create suction have also been introduced.


Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

A natural way to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and create an overall more youthful appearance. An ancient tradition that is used to revitalize the face, it works by stimulating collagen and elastin through the  intricate placement of fine needles. The needles themselves create a micro-trauma which causes the body to produce collagen at the site of insertion. Facial Acupuncture not only halts appearances of aging and creates a more vital appearance, but it helps heal  the body on a deep level, aiding in digestion, boosting the immune system, and creating an overall sense of well-being and vitality.
