Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (vital air, blood, and body fluids) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Stress and tension relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Stronger digestion
  • Relief from bad habits and addictions
  • Greater sense of overall health and well-being
  • Relief from hot flashes and other menopause symptoms

Auricular Acupuncture/ NADA

$55.00 per treatment

(As part of your regular acupuncture treatment there is no additional charge).  There is an up-charge for Swarovski crystals used in place of traditional "ear seeds". 

Community or Group Treatment: 25 - 45.00 per person.  See Community Acu link on Home page.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), believes we possess an entire microcosm of our body's acupuncture points and channels in the outer ear.  These are effective therapeutic points, often used in addition to the body for your treatment.  Auricular acupuncture points are also used by themselves for various indications.

 The National Association of Detoxification and Addiction (NADA) has developed standard auricular acupuncture protocols to treat addiction, smoking cessation, compulsive behaviors, PTSD, and weight loss. Select Opioid Dependence on Home page to see and read more about NADA acupuncture.  Also, for more information about the NADA protocols, click the following website link:

Cupping

$45.00 per Cupping Treatment Area

Cupping has been a part of Chinese Medicine for over 2,500 years. It relieves aches and pains, improves circulation, and also helps with respiratory and digestive issues. I simply place a specialized "cup" onto specific points on your body, and then use suction to draw your skin up into the cups. It doesn't hurt — it simply draws fresh blood to that area of your body, which facilitates the cleansing and strengthening of your Qi flow (vital air, blood and body fluids). 

Areas are defined as Back, Abdomen, Buttocks, and Thighs

Electroacupuncture

Electroacupuncture is a highly effective holistic treatment for pain, nausea, and chronic ailments. In practice, it is actually very similar to traditional acupuncture. Using the exact same system of Chinese Medicine, I insert very thin and sterile needles into specific points along the meridians of your body. I then attach the needles to a device that delivers gentle electrical pulses between two points. This helps restore the healthy flow of Qi (vital air, blood, and body fluids) through your body, removing any blockages and clearing out stagnant areas, thus creating a stronger and clearer experience of health and well-being.  I may use an electrical stimulation, or a laser device, for elecroacupuncture.

Gua Sha

Although Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique used by Chinese Medicine practitioners for thousands of years, it is relatively unknown in the West. It is recognized throughout Asia as a highly effective treatment for chronic pain conditions, stress, fatigue, and a host of other ailments.

First, Gua Sha oil is applied to a specific meridian/channel on your body. I then use a smooth round-edged object (such as a spoon) to apply short brisk strokes to that area. This creates red patches of skin (called "Sha"), detoxifying your blood and restoring the healthy flow if Qi (vital air, blood, and body fluids), to the area. There is no pain involved, and the Sha will fade in 2 to 3 days. 

This could add up to fifteen (15) minutes to your acupuncture appointment.

Tui Na

Tui Na is an ancient form of bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I use a variety of pressures and strokes along the meridians (energy pathways) of your body to both relax your muscles and also stimulate the flow of energy throughout your body. By treating both the physical (musculature) and vital air, blood, and body fluids (Qi), levels of your body at the same time, we can achieve enhanced results in your healing process. 

Happy Hour

$40 per person and a 40.00 travel

What is Acupuncture Happy Hour? (Ahh)

You, and a few of your friends, gather in your home, or other chosen destination, for deep relaxation.

Ahh is your time.  Seated comfortably in your space, you listen to calming music. The room is whisper quiet while you receive gentle acupuncture on just a handful of acupoints.  No disrobing required.  Then you'll receive light non-needle stimulation of a few ear points. Breathe. Renew yourself with this wonderfully de-stressing indulgence.  In about 30 minutes, I remove the body point needles. I'll then place a few discreet, flesh colored ear "seeds" over select points of one ear, or you may choose to upgrade your ear seeds to Swarovski crystals with solid 14k gold "seeds".

These seeds stay up to 5 days. You massage them a few times a day to reinforce and prolong the calming effects of your treatment.  Simply peel them off after that time.

Travel is quoted within a 30 mile radius of Powell, OH.  Other locations are open for discussion.

 

 

Acupressure

Acupressure is based on one the most ancient principles of healing — that simply touching a specific point on the body will release stress and improve health in the body. In an acupressure session, I apply firm pressure directly to these "points" on your body, which relieves your muscle tension and improves your circulation. This simple and powerful technique has been shown to very effective in treating headaches, backaches, and even insomnia.
