Our ServicesCollaborative – Whole health care.
Acupuncture is a modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine that has a long history, over 3000 years. It utilizes the use of thin needles to stimulate various points over the body that can influence the muscles and the organs via nervous pathways, also known as meridians. Acupuncture points overlay motor, trigger, and deep somatic nerves, as well as interacts with the fascia to stimulate Qi, also known as energy.
Other modalities such a cupping, the use of glass cups and a flame to create a vacuum over the body for my-fascial decompression; gua sha, a scrapping technique that helps break-up dense fascial tissue; electro-stimulated acupuncture; and herbal medicine, are all used to bring balance to the body, mind, and soul.
The acupuncture needles themselves are single use, sterile, and made of surgical grade stainless steel. In most instances they feel like nothing more than a mosquito bite; however the “Qi sensations” can vary from person to person, and can be quite intense, especially when trying to illicit a muscle fasciculation (or muscle twitch), to release taut musculature.
Aside from the physical benefits, acupuncture can aide in mental tranquility, and stress reduction, as well as a multitude of other conditions.
Daily stressors and past traumas can cause ripple effects in our lives which left unchecked can turn into self-destructive waves. It’s usually obvious to us to treat a physical ailment; that low back pain, or common cold; but, how often do we stop and think about our mental health? Psychology studies how we think, feel, and behave from a scientific perspective. After gaining insight of all areas, knowledge may be applied to help people understand, explain and change their behavior.
