Acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of medicine in the world, having originated in China over 2,000 years ago. Acupuncture works at the bioelectrical level. Energy flows along pathways in our body to all organs, glands and cells. When the flow of energy in these pathways becomes disrupted or blocked, illness develops. With the body’s energy out of balance, it cannot function properly.

Acupuncture can help address a wide variety of health concerns including but not limited to:

Cupping is the technique of placing glass or plastic cups along the body to relieve muscle tension, increase blood flow, clear chest congestion, reduce asthma and draw out toxins. It feels similar to a massage however it uses suction to lift the muscles up to reduce tension and promote relaxation.
Guided visualization is a relaxation technique that impacts brain chemistry and cellular activity. I know how powerful the mind-body connection is on our physical and emotional health. I therefore offer my patients the opportunity to tap into the conscious and unconscious mind to reduce stress, speed up metabolism, improve sleep or strengthen their immune system using guided visualization. Patients have the choice of selecting and listening to one of several guided visualizations from Circle & Bloom during their acupuncture treatment.

I educate patients on the importance of a healthy, real food diet and assess how their diet choices may be influencing their current health concerns. As part of each patient’s treatment plan, I offer easy-to-implement nutrition and life style suggestions that will enhance his or her overall health.
