Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into specific points of the body with ultimate goal of harmonizing and re-aligning the body’s natural healing processes. These points are chosen using Traditional Chinese Medicine theory and are based on the unique symptoms of each individual. Acupuncture can help with wide range of issues including body pain, mental-emotional health, allergies, fertility, as well as digestive, immune, and menstrual support.

Whether you are looking to get rid of major aches and pains or just want some time to relax, massage can help! The therapeutic qualities of massage allow for a reduction in inflammation with an increase in blood and lymph circulation. Massage is able to promote the healthy repair of muscle, tendon, and soft tissue structures. On top of the physical benefits of massage, the time spent on the table give any anxious nervous system a break and allows space for emotional healing.
Cupping uses glass cups with suction placed onto specific areas of the skin; this process facilitates healing by allowing greater blood flow to areas of pain and trauma. Cupping is a great way to get the deep benefits of a massage in half the time.
Gua Sha is a technique that uses a rounded tool to apply even pressure over the muscle with the help of an oil or salve. This often feels like a deep dragging along the muscle. Like cupping, Gua Sha speeds recovery by bringing greater blood flow to the area and relaxing the underlying tissue.
