Styles of Acupuncture Treatment 

My primary acupuncture style is a Japanese approach, which means I use small needles and the needle stimulation is very gentle. Often you don’t even feel the needles. I also offer other styles of treatment such as TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), 5-Element Acupuncture, Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture, and 8 Principle Acupuncture; I will combine styles to achieve the most superior results possible. 

Besides acupuncture, I also offer other non-needle treatment modalities. Here’s a description of these other techniques:

Chinese herbal formulas address the underlying cause of illness without the unwanted side effects. Herbal formulas are foods that are combined specially to help your specific main complaint. The formulas meet the stringent FDA standards and are made by reputable companies. Granules, which are herbal teas, are the main form of herbal medicine. Herbs also come in pill, capsule, and liquid form. Liquid herbs are especially usually for children. In addition, I also use topical liniments and plasters to help with pain and dermatological conditions. 
   
  Moxibustion
Moxibustion, or “moxa” for short, is an herb called mugwort that burns directly on the skin or on a needle. Moxa provides heat and stimulation to the acupuncture points. The skin turns pink with warmth, the muscles relax, and often a soothing sensation occurs. Moxa is great in the winter and for female infertility; when moxa is used, fewer needles are needed. With children, I often use moxa (known as “magic sticks”) instead of needles.

According to Chinese medicine, pain is often due to localized stagnation in the skin and muscles. Cupping is a method which stimulates the skin and musculoskeletal layers to help with pain, headaches, colds, and cough. Small plastic cups suction the skin for 5-7 minutes. You will feel a pulling on the skin during this treatment. Cupping can create a red and purple spot for 3-5 days.
   
  Gua Sha
Gua sha is similar to cupping as it releases the skin and muscle layers. A gua sha tool, usually a lid, is gently rubbed or scraped over the affected area. This methodology stimulates blood circulation to relieve pain, and colds. Like cupping, red and purple spots can emerge for 3-5 days.

As a former professional dancer, Pilates, and gyrotonic teacher, I often give home stretches and strengthening exercises. These exercises can help with sciatica due to pregnancy, tight back muscles, infertility, and anxiety. Please feel free to ask me about your exercise regime. 
 
  Ion Pumping Cords and Pachi Pachi
Ion pumping cords are a Japanese modality which moves the energy in a particular direction. The cords are attached to the needles and stimulated with a Pachi Pachi. You may feel a pulsing sensation which stimulates a sense of quietness and relaxation. Ion pumping cords are often used for pain conditions, insomnia, anxiety, and exhaustion.

The digestive tract plays an important role on the road to recovery whether it’s for pain, fibroids, infertility, digestive conditions, or weight management.

Breathing and meditation are some of the best ways to reduce anxiety. Some people meditate by chanting a mantra while sitting, some people meditate on a candle flame, and other people pray. I will teach you simple, non-intimidating ways to meditate. Do it daily and you will start to experience benefits such as decreased anxiety, clarity of mind, more enriched spirit, and better sleep.
