Treatments and Specials
This technique uses glass, silicone and plastic pneumatic pump cups to create suction on the skin, so that the muscle layer is drawn into the cup. Cupping helps to relieve muscle aches and pains by improving the microcirculation of blood and Qi. It can also be used to relieve fascial tension, treat cellulite anywhere on the body, improve skin tone during cosmetic acupuncture and resolve chest congestion.
Gua sha is performed by stimulating circulation in the muscle layer via a slight surface abrasion with a dulled object like a ceramic spoon, rounded piece of jade or other smooth edged object. This technique helps release pathogens from the body and relieve muscle tension via fascial release techniques.
In this type of treatment the dried herb Ai Ye, also known as mugwort, is used strengthen blood, stimulate qi flow and warm different areas of the body. Ai Ye can be applied in different forms such as indirect moxa sticks used over regions, loose moxa formed in to cones and placed on ginger, garlic or salt, stick on moxa placed directly on points or rolled balls of moxa directly on the end of needles.
Sound has been used by various cultures for thousands of years for healing. In this treatment solfeggio tones, singing bowls, tuning forks, koshi chimes and ting sha’s are used to harmonize and rebalance the chakras. Different frequencies soothe and relax the mind and entrain brain waves to shift from the beta state of awake consciousness towards the relaxed, meditative and healing states of alpha, theta and delta levels..
Various types of crystals with different properties are placed on different parts of the body to promote an overall sensation of well being via something known as piezoelectric forces. Crystals are thought to be a conduit for healing by allowing energy to flow through them- bringing positive energy in and leaching negative energy out.
ReikiReiki is a gentle Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing and the movement of energy through the body. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is the driving force behind life and longevity.
ShiatsuAnother form of Japanese bodywork, shiatsu uses hand and finger pressure along specific channels of the body to relieve pain and unblock channels. This hands-on technique helps move energy through what’s called meridians that flow throughout the body.
Facial RejuvenationCosmetic Facial Acupuncture utilizes super fine needles to stimulate the dermis in order to reduce wrinkles and lessen fine lines by promoting collagen’s plumping and firming action. This type of acupuncture is best done over a 12 week series.

How it works
Many common illnesses are caused by physiological blockages (known as stagnations) and relative states of ‘excess and deficiency’ that eventually lead to more serious diseases. These imbalances and stagnations can provoke symptoms such as: allergies, digestive issues, headaches, infertility, pain and much more.
A little bit of history
An ancient Chinese medical technique, acupuncture has been refined for over 3,000 years. With a multitude of modern applications in comprehensive medical facilities across the world today, it is used to treat a wide variety of physical, mental and emotional ailments. It is also used as a preventative medicine.
How it’s done
During your treatment, super fine, painless needles (the width of a few strands of hair) are inserted in to specific points on the body to create a therapeutic effect by stimulating your own innate healing capabilities. Acupuncture helps to remove excesses, replenish deficiencies and unblock stagnations by redirecting energy, known as ‘Qi’ in Chinese medicine.
The Definition of Qi (ch-ee)
Qi is identified as a vital circulating life force, and is essentially what keeps blood flowing smoothly through our veins. When Qi is not flowing properly we experience pain, discomfort and other common conditions. The good news is that all of these imbalances can be realigned, unblocked and nourished by acupuncture, herbal medicine and other accompanying
