Our licensed acupuncturists diagnose and treat patients using an array of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques developed over thousands of years.

Herbal Consultation - We conduct a thorough health history and patient intake, and develop an herbal prescription or protocol based on the patient's individual presentation. We also take into consideration any biomedical diagnosis and current pharmaceutical medications.


Acupuncture - Very fine needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points to relieve pain, address imbalances, and promote physical and emotional wellbeing.


Bodywork - Acupressure, based on the Japanese "Shiatsu" system, uses manual pressure at specific acupressure points. Bodywork also includes massage, joint mobilization, stretching, and the traditional Taoist bodywork practice called Tuina.

Consultation for Chronic Disease - A thorough review of the patient's medical history and relevant health information is combined with an assessment of the patient's condition. Protocols are developed for each individual, often in coordination with other practitioners. Therapies often change over time, following the course of the disease and the healing process.


Cupping - A special glass suction cup is applied to the skin to relieve muscle aches and pains. This therapy is also a diagnostic tool that reveals problem areas by producing a purplish color on the skin. This color normally lasts for about 5-7 days.


Dietary and Lifestyle Recommendations - This is an essential part of any comprehensive wellness program. Specific dietary and lifestyle recommendations are made for each patient based on their condition, TCM diagnosis, constitution, and genetic heritage.


Gua Sha - A Gua Sha tool, which resembles a Chinese soup spoon, is rubbed lightly on the surface of the body.


Herbal/Nutritional Prescription -Botanical and nutritional agents are prescribed based on the patient's constitution and symptom picture, as well as their biomedical diagnosis. Herbs are available in a variety of forms including teapills, granules, bulk herbal tinctures, powders, topicals sprays and more. We also carry a large inventory of nutritional supplements. See the apothecary page for more information.  


Moxibustion - Heat is applied to specific areas of the body or specific acupuncture points by the burning of mugwort. There are several safe techniques to apply this therapy.


Star Needling - With this therapy, seven very fine and short needles, connected to a stem and a base, are tapped gently and rhythmically on the surface of the skin at specific points.


Qi Gong - This Qi cultivation practice, which incorporates specific movement and breathing techniques, is also a healing modality.
