All acupuncture treatments include the use of modalities such as moxabustion, cupping, guasha or tuina, depending your treatment needs.
Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues and joints by kneading, compressing, and trigger pointing (among many other techniques).
The soft tissues of the body include tendons, ligaments, muscles and connective tissues. Apart from muscular injuries and tension, massage can improve sleep, reduce stress and relieve conditions such as tension headaches and migraines.
Moxabustion is a modality used by acupuncturists, which involves burning the herb mugwort (Artemesia Argyi) on or near the skin.
Moxa is used to increase the circulation of blood and Qi, expel pathogens and warm the interior.
Some common conditions treated with moxa are arthritis, common colds and muscle pain.
Cupping, Guasha and Tuina
Cupping, Guasha and Tuina (Or Chinese Massage) are all Traditional Chinese techniques that can be used for muscle pain and tension or for resolving internal medical conditions.

Chinese Herbal Therapy and Supplements
We offer a variety of Chinese Herbal formulas and as well as high quality supplements,
liniments and home care products to enhance the effect of your treatment.
The cold laser is used to stimulate tissues at a cellular level to promote healing, reduce pain, and relax tight muscles. The laser is often used for improving healing time with
stubborn injuries such as sprains and broken bones. It can also be used to stimulate acupuncture points, and is often used for patients with low needle tolerance.
Acutonics is a sound and vibrational therapy combined with the theories of Chinese medicine. Tuning forks that are specifically attuned to the body are activated and placed on acupuncture points and specific areas of the body.
Any condition that can be treated with acupuncture, can be treated with Acutonics; physical, emotional and spiritual. Sound and vibration can travel deep into the body; from the tissues to the marrow. Crystal and brass singing bowls are also used along with the tuning forks to intensify the treatment.
