Acupuncture is a safe and effective method of healing that has been used for thousands of years in East Asia and more recently, worldwide. It involves the painless insertion of thin, single-use sterile needles into specific locations on the body, helping to unlock your body’s potential to heal. Your comfort during an acupuncture treatment is most important to us, as we believe the body only heals during complete states of relaxation. Patients will often drift off during a treatment and awaken refreshed and rejuvenated, with their symptoms diminished or even gone!
Acupuncture is effective for helping with symptoms of pain, including arthritis, lower back pain, neck pain and joint pain. It can also help alleviate symptoms of digestive disorders, menstrual disorders, anxiety & depression, insomnia and sleep disorders, neurological disorders, auto-immune disorders, and many, many more conditions. Acupuncture is also well known to help specifically with male and female infertility, and is a great addition to Western fertility treatments.
Above all, our acupuncture patients report feeling stronger, less pain, more balanced and grounded after treatments. They report increased happiness, increased feelings of joy, diminished illness and stronger immunity.
Acupuncture with Shiatsu Touch Therapy
What is Shiatsu?
Michaela and Greg work with Shiatsu, an Asian bodywork therapy that utilizes light therapeutic touch, in conjunction with acupuncture treatment. In this hour-long session, patients receive a full hour’s worth of hands on care, both with needles and massage. This is a great option for patients who want to take their healing to a deeper level, or for patients who prefer touch over acupuncture needles. Shiatsu is used in the treatment of a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal, and emotional conditions and will help reduce muscle stiffness, stimulate the skin, aid digestion, and influence the nervous system.
