Acupuncture therapy includes the insertion of sterile, single-use stainless steel needles into specific acupuncture points. The needles are hair-thin and while some may feel a momentary sensation that may feel like a gentle prick, many report they don’t even feel the majority of the insertions. The needles are generally left in from 15-45 minutes while the patient lays still relaxing.
Gua Sha is a bodywork technique where the practitioner applies oil to an area and then uses a tool to brush along the skin to generate and increase the circulation of blood. This therapy is applied to specific areas on the neck, back and shoulders. Gua Sha brings relief to those with muscular aches and pains. Marks may show for up to a week after treatment.
Cupping therapy has gained popularity in the U.S. thanks to the Olympics and Gweneth Paltrow.

Facial Qi as we like to call it is designed to alleviate stress, puffiness, enhance blood circulation and relieve pain in the facial area. Those with TMJ and Jaw pain will especially benefit from this relaxing treatment. Gentle, extra-thin needles are inserted into different areas of the face and jaw. This is followed by a 10 minute facial massage with jade rollers, facial cups and a rose quartz gua sha tool.
