We utilize surgically sterile, single-use stainless-steel needles to realign the energetic pathways of your body - pathways that encompass nerve roots, blood and other bodily fluids, electrical impulses, and biomagnetic wavelengths.
Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points, which are part of a comprehensive web that spans the entire human body. When the body is out of balance - physically, emotionally, or spiritually - the body's intricate workings can create a cascading effect of pathological health conditions.

By eliciting a strong suction, tight muscles are stretched and relaxed. The therapeutic benefit of cupping lies in the fact that when muscles naturally relax, there is a subsequent decrease in pressure on nerves, bones, joints, and connective tissues.
TIGHT, SPASMED, AND PAINFUL MUSCLE DISORDERS CAN PUT A STOP TO DAILY ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE AN ATHLETE. CUPPING ALLOWS FOR GREATER MOBILITY AND LESS PAIN.
In addition to athletic use, cupping can be used to decrease the appearance of cellulite, ward off the common cold, expedite the healing of shingles, reduce minor muscular and nerve pain, increase circulation, and aid in an overall sense of relaxation and well-being.
We truly are what we eat. The prevailing thoughts in our society are that we eat to stay alive; we eating a specific way to have a specific look; we heat because it's what we do with others.

that food is nutrition, that food is vitality, that food is a source of change.
Herbal therapy has been utilized for centuries. Unlike the prescription process in Western medicine, herbs are used based on how the body is expressing the issue (what we call in Chinese medicine the ‘presenting pattern’). One patient coming in complaining of sciatica may be given a formula that is completely different from the next person coming in with the exact same complaint. In herbal therapy, it’s not a one size fits all approach: it’s individualized to meet the specific needs of the patient.
