Our Services

Our treatment protocols include a variety of holistic healing techniques.  Each can be utilized independently or in conjunction with one another to maximize therapeutic affect.  After your initial consultation and evaluation, a recommended treatment plan will be offered.

Our treatments include:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body to stimulate natural healing. These points occur along quantifiable energetic pathways called meridians. The insertion of the acupuncture needles sends a message called Qi along these meridians resulting in normalized physiological function, hormonal balance, reduced pain, and strengthened immunity. (Please see Acupuncture for more information)

Cupping

Cupping involves placing glass, bamboo or plastic jars on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, partway into the cup. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, relieve pain, remove “heat” and pull out the toxins that linger in your body’s tissues. (Please see Cupping Theory for more information)

Moxibustion

Moxa is used as a gentle but penetrating heat therapy.  It involves the herb artemesia (Chinese mugwort) that is lit and held an inch above the skin warming an acupuncture needle or acupuncture point. This form of stimulation is extremely restorative for a patient in a weakened condition. Because of its healing effects, patients are often sent home with instructions on how to use it themselves. (Please see Moxibustion for more information)

Prescriptions (Herbal Remedies)

Chinese herbal medicines are plant based, but some preparations include minerals or animal products. Different herbs have different properties and can balance particular parts of the body. Prescribing a particular herb or concoction of herbs (formula) means Fred’s diagnosis has to take into account the state of the patients Yin and Yang, as well as the elements that are governing the affected organs. (Please see Herbal Remedies for more information)

Shiatsu

Shiatsu which translates as “finger pressure” is a form of therapeutic bodywork from Japan. Using kneading, pressing, soothing, tapping, and stretching techniques Shiatsu is an integration of traditional Japanese manual therapies with modern western medical knowledge.
