I practice Japanese Style acupuncture which includes the following: Ion Pumping Cords that rely on your bodies electrical field, moxabustion in various forms, eniashin which are tiny needles that are taped in place for 1-4 days that help extend the treatment effects, and Toya Hari Technique where needles only touch the skin, and are not inserted.
I also do hands -on techniques in my treatments including: massage, neural release, and source point therapy. I find this facilitates a deeper relaxation. Both treatment rooms are cozy, and have heated tables and heat lamps.
Acupuncture works with the physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental bodies intentionally, as they are all interconnected, and can all be helpful in healing. That being said, I do refer to other practitioners when my scope of practice does not cover a client’s needs. Also there are other resources and avenues through lifestyle changes which can augment treatment, which I suggest when relevant. Each client is unique and regarded as such. It is always an honor to share my joy in Complementary Medicine.
