Acupuncture & TCM

     

    Relieve pain, strengthen the immune system, and promote the balance, harmony and integration of the functions of all bodily organs.

    Overview

    TCM has been in practice for over 2,000 years of recorded history. Through acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and modalities such as gua sha, tui na, cupping, and moxabustion, TCM takes a natural and supportive approach to bringing the body back into balance.

    An acupuncture treatment considers all aspects of the human body, physical ailments, the emotional state of the patient, the individual spirit and the sort of lifestyle that the patient chooses to lead.

    Do I Need Acupuncture?

    The three main objectives of Acupuncture treatments are pain relief, strengthening the immune system, and promoting the balance, harmony and integration of the functions of all bodily organs.

    Does my insurance cover acupuncture treatments?

    Do you offer TCM Herbs or supplements?

    We only recommend supplements as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and do not sell them without an appointment over the counter. Ask your acupuncturist about herbs at your next visit!

    What should I wear to my appointment?

    Your acupuncturist will likely need to shift your clothing to access your arms, legs, and/or torso, so we generally recommend clothing that is loose, comfortable to rest in, and easy to slide or roll up for access. Separates and layers tend to work better than rompers, thick clothing, or long sleeves. However, if your clothing does not allow sufficient access, your therapist will provide a robe or gown for you to change into.

    IMPORTANT!

    Please make sure you read and understand our Cancelation Policy:

    To ensure fairness for our practitioners and other clients, we ask for 24 hours advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. Canceling or rescheduling within 24 hours of your appointment time, or missing the appointment, will result in a late cancelation fee of half the appointment value - discounts and insurance coverage do not apply. We may make exceptions for emergencies or illness, but encourage you to think ahead and give us as much advance notice as possible. Cancelling via email or phone message is acceptable even outside of business hours. Thanks for your cooperation!

    COVID-19 Update

    We are open ONLY for Essential Acupuncture Services!

    Massage therapy and yoga instruction is suspended until further notice. 

    Essential visits treat any non-emergency condition that is affecting quality of life enough to motivate you to seek support. Essential does NOT mean life-threatening emergency (please go to the emergency room in that case). 
    We will call to confirm that your appointment is essential.
      

    Please stay home if you have fever or a cough.

    If in-person treatment is not appropriate or practical, please consider our 30-minute virtual appointments for support and self-care recommendations.
