Our Services

Our main services are rooted in Traditional Chinese Me include Acupuncture, Acupoint Injection Therapy, Facial Rejuvenation Therapy, Cupping & Tuina Therapy.

As well as treating specific ailments, we focus on restoring the body’s natural state of equilibrium through an all-natural alternative medical approach. We specialize on the treatment of the following conditions.

Pain Relief and Management

Acupuncture is a time-tested, safe, natural and drug-free alternative that can provide immediate relief and long-lasting benefits. If you have experienced trauma and pain from an accident, please note that research also supports the use of acupuncture for after-treatment of accident patients. Acupuncture presents a valuable therapeutic option - resulting in reduced pain, decreased edema, increased range of motion and reduction of long standing complaints following accidents.

Through the insertion of very fine, sterile needles at specific points, acupuncture stimulates the body to produce its own natural pain killers (endorphins), natural anti-inflammatory and anti-stress hormones. The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture promotes physical and emotional well-being.

Dermatitis / Eczema

Eczema (atopic dermatitis) is a chronic condition, causing scratchy, itchy, red, dry and sometimes cracked skin. In more extreme examples, the skin will become cracked, blistery, and leathery. Eczema can be triggered by allergic reactions, stress, and toxins in the environment. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Approach to Eczema include Acupuncture and herbal remedies that may help to reduce skin inflammation and stop itching. These treatments can work to rebalance the body’s system by reducing those elements that exist in excess and by increasing those elements in the system that are deficient. Using topical Chinese herbal medicine soaks is very effective at reducing itching, and supports acupuncture treatments between visits to the clinic.

It generally takes 3 to 6 months of regular treatment with acupuncture and herbal medicine to permanently cure eczema. Without herbal medicine, treatments will take longer.

Allergies

Most people suffer from two main types of allergies: Seasonal and Perennial. Seasonal allergies, commonly called "hay fever," result from exposure to airborne substances such as pollens that appear only during certain times of the year. Perennial allergies result from exposure to substances such as house dust or house pets. Perennial allergies may occur during any season and may last year-round.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have been proven to help alleviate the symptoms of allergies when they are active and more importantly, can help to correct the immune system imbalance that causes the allergic response in the first place.

Acupuncture treatment affects allergies in 4 main ways:

  • Stabilize the immune system to moderate its response to invading allergens; 
  • Decrease swelling and inflammation of local tissues to stop itching; 
  • Decrease secretions of mucus membranes to reduce nasal discharge and watery eyes; 
  • Strengthen your natural resistance to antigens

The focus of each treatment will be on relieving the troubling symptoms while simultaneously helping your body stop the allergic cascade. It is also very important to use acupuncture and herbs preventatively, when you are not having allergy problems. The frequency and severity of your allergic symptoms can be drastically reduced if the immune system is allowed to fully repair in the off-season.

Facial Rejuvenation

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is known as a Cosmetic Acupuncture or an Acupuncture Facelift. 

Cosmetic Acupuncture or an Acupuncture Facelift is a non-surgical procedure that will help to rejuvenate and revitalize your whole body. It will improve blood and energy circulation, nourish your skin, and increase collagen production to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and dull skin.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is based on the principals of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  Our practitioner in Cosmetic Acupuncture is able to utilize the meridians that either end or begin at the face to stimulate and balance the energy while treating the underlying factors that contribute to the aging process. This involves the insertion of hair-thin disposable needles into specific areas on the face, ears, hands, legs and torso. The needles are inserted into the energy pathways or meridians to improve the flow of Qi (energy). As the movement of energy improves, a greater amount of energy and blood are circulated into the face, nourishing, hydrating, toning and diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.

Cosmetic Acupuncture is not a replacement for surgery, however it is an excellent natural alternative. It is much less costly and a safer treatment. It is painless and has no negative side effects; there is no trauma inflicted on the body or need for recovery.

Weight Loss

Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, has been used successfully to treat weight issues. Many of our patients have had issues ranging from moderate weight concerns to severe obesity. Chinese medicine, used in combination with diet modification and exercise, has been shown to be more effective than simple diet routines and exercise when losing weight. Furthermore, many of our patients tend to keep the weight off longer.

Acupuncture stimulates specific points in the body that regulates the metabolic rate, therefor, it corrects the rate into the normal range. Moreover, herbs can help to reduce craving for excessive calories.

Acupuncture can help to:

  • Reduces hunger and food cravings so you can loose weight;
  • Allows your body to take in less fat from the food you eat;
  • Makes you feel full; and
  • Eases the frustration and anxiety that triggers overeating.

However, acupuncture is not a miracle cure for obesity. TCM physicians emphasize that to achieve good weight loss results from your program and to maintain the obtained weight, acupuncture treatment itself is not enough. To lose weight effectively and to keep the fats off permanently, acupuncture treatment must be combined with healthy eating habits and regular exercises.

Infertility

Acupuncture may increase the success rate of IVF treatments. 

A German study in 2002 reported that of the 80 women who underwent IVF along with acupuncture, 34 women got pregnant, a success rate of 42.5%. Of the 80 women involved in the study who received IVF without any acupuncture treatments, only 21 women (26.3%) became pregnant. More recently, an American study involving 114 women showed that 51% of the women who had acupuncture and IVF treatments became pregnant versus only 36% of the women who had only IVF treatment got pregnant. Deeper analysis of the study revealed that when 8% of the women in the acupuncture group had miscarriage, the rate of miscarriage in the IVF-only group was 20%.

Benefits of TCM & Acupuncture relating to Fertility may include:

  • Helps normalize ovulation and regulate cycles;
  • Increases blood flow to the reproductive organs and uterine lining;
  • Improves uterine receptivity;
  • Increases thickness of endometrial lining;
  • Reduces stress;
  • Increases thickness of endometrial lining;
  • Improves overall health and well-being;
  • Improves sperm parameters; and
  • Male infertility and varicoceles.
