First Time Visits
Normally in an initial treatment, we would do a thorough intake and evaluation and then give the patient a clear picture of where their health is at and discuss how we could work together to achieve their goals to bring their health back to where they want. We would also explain dietary and or lifestyle changes needed. It is truly believed that everyone can have optimal health with proper diagnosis, treatment, and a cooperative relationship between practitioner and the patient.
Acupuncture is the most visible part of Traditional Chinese Medicine in America today. With the insertion of filiform needles at pinpoint parts of the body, acupuncture can be used to treat a myriad conditions ranging from the common cold to chronic pain to infertility.

Facial Rejuvenation is a natural approach to anti-aging. It involves insertion of small acupuncture needles on the face to help promote good circulation to nourish and support collagen production on the face and needles in the body to help boost qi and blood to improve overall energies in the body as well. This helps to address underlying imbalances which may have contributed to the aging process. Needles are retained for about 25-30 minutes while patient is laying comfortably in a nice warm bed. After the needles are removed, an E-stem machine is used to help lift, and tone sagging muscles on the face and neck areas. Then an herbal or collagen mask is placed on the face and patient enjoys massage on the lower extremities. This 2 hour treatment leaves skin more supple, firm, and youthful. Results are immediate for most people, however, 4 sessions once per week is advisable (to look years younger). These treatments are safe and effective to help reduce the signs of aging in a natural approach, which helps your whole body to look and feel younger.
