Acupuncture

There are many types of acupuncture across the globe. My training is grounded in the Chinese Medical system. We use hair-thin needles, inserting them into the skin on various points on the body. In Chinese medicine acupuncture there are more than 700 points all over the body that correspond to the organ systems within. Stimulating these points with the use of needles elicits a response from the feedback systems of the body including the nervous, endocrine, immune, digestive, and hormonal systems.

Acupuncture has been shown to support conditions ranging from migraines, stress, and insomnia, to chronic inflammatory diseases, digestive disorders, depression, and more.

All needles are either stainless steel or gold, are sterile, and are for one-time use only.
