Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through your skin at strategic points on your body. A key component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is most commonly used to treat pain. Increasingly, it is being used for overall wellness, including stress management.

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as chi or qi (chee) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.

In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers.

Tui Na and Moxibustion

Tui Na is a form of Chinese therapeutic massage that focuses on restoring the flow of energy within the body. Our skilled practitioners use various techniques, including kneading, pressing, and stretching, to address specific health concerns. Tui Na can help with musculoskeletal issues, promote relaxation, and support overall wellness.

Moxibustion, on the other hand, is a therapy that involves the burning of dried mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) on or near specific acupuncture points or areas of the body. The heat generated from the burning mugwort stimulates these points, promoting circulation, relieving pain, and strengthening the body’s energy. Moxibustion is often used in conjunction with acupuncture and is believed to have a warming and tonifying effect on the body.
