Body Work

Bodywork services are offered in addition or as an alternative to needling treatment.
Given your particular needs, your treatment plan will usually consist of one or more of the following bodywork services:

Acupressure

Light pressure applied to specific areas of the body. Restores health and promotes balance.

Cupping

Often applied to the back and shoulders, cupping is used to break up stagnation and promote healing. With lighter suction cupping can be applied to the face and other areas of the body to move lymphatic fluids and improve skin tone.

Electric Stimulation

Applied to the ear and body, e-stim machines can both locate and treat acupuncture points. Specific frequencies delivered from the machine through a needle or directly to the skin adjust the biochemistry needed to balance the nervous
system: for pain, neuropathy, addictions, mood disorders, hormonal, general health.

Reflexology

The study and practice of massage and acupressure on specific reflex points of the feet, hands, ears and face.

Gua Sha

For pains, sprains and strains of the neck, back, and whole body. A small tool is used to scrape the skin and trigger the inflammatory response which stimulates healing of an injured area into a healthier, more functional state.

Swedish Massage

For muscle strain and improved circulation, massage oil is applied to the neck, back and spine, hands, arms, feet and ankles. Effleurage, (gliding motion), petrissage (lifting, squeezing), friction, tapotement (rhythmic percussive) and vibration.
