We use a holistic and integrative approach offering the full potential of Chinese medicine. Your care may include acupressure, therapeutic essential oils, herbal medicine, moxabustion, cupping, gentle bodywork, nutrition counseling, and gentle bodywork.



Your first appointment includes an intake interview and treatment.
The interview is an opportunity to discuss your concerns and reasons for seeking treatment, review your health history and set goals for treatment. You will have plenty of time to ask questions.   

Next is an evaluation of pulse, functional tests to assess range of motion or other physical indicators and gentle palpation of acupuncture points.  The evaluation provides objective measures
to establish a baseline and clarify a diagnosis.


Acupuncture needles are extremely fine, sterile, individually
packaged and disposable.Many people say that they experience
a deep state of relaxation and renewal with acupuncture.  


At the conclusion of your session,  I will formulate a personalized treatment plan to help you reach your goals. Chinese medicine goes beyond needles, so I will offer you self care ideas to reinforce your treatment.  Weekly visits are recommended in the beginning of treatment to see most effective results.  Sessions are spaced out as your symptoms improve.  Some patients continue for preventative care or ongoing maintenance, as needed.
