Acupuncture is a system of medicine used to treat illnesses and pain. This is done by inserting ultra-fine, disposable needles into the skin at specific points on the body. These acupuncture points are related to energy pathways or meridians that run throughout the entire length of the body. Acupuncture is a six-thousand year-old Chinese therapy that works by stimulating the body to naturally correct Qi imbalances.

Cupping is a traditional therapy used to treat common ailments including respiratory, musculo-skeletal and digestive disorders. During cupping a smooth glass cup is placed on the body by means of a vacuum. This vacuum is created by either manually pumping out the oxygen, or using a flame to burn out the oxygen (the cup itself is not heated).

In certain cases, several cups may be used simultaneously, and or moved about on the body. Cupping is also used for detoxification, as it brings metabolic wastes (toxins) to the surface to be flushed out by the lymphatic system.


Along with dietary recommendations, herbal medicine can successfully treat:

  • Digestive issues
  • Body pains
  • Body regulatory systems
Acupuncture treatments are enhanced with the combination of Chinese herbs. Like acupuncture, herbal formulas treat a wide variety of symptoms while stimulating the body’s natural healing process. Texts of Chinese Herbal Medicine date to around 100 BC. Chinese Herbs are used to strengthen a weak immune system, to treat and prevent illness, to alleviate pain, and to balance the body.

Herbs are dispensed in two ways – through patent medicines and herbal extracts, and are prescribed by acupuncturists licensed in Chinese Herbal Medicine. Patent medicines are taken in the form of small pills, and herbal extracts are combined into a formula designed by the Acupuncturist and taken with warm water in the form of a tea.

Tui Na

  • Internal disorders (esp. gastrointestinal, urinary, and gynecological disorders)

Tui Na is an ancient style of Chinese massage whose techniques are used to treat and heal diseases. It is used both for musculoskeletal conditions as well as internal diseases. The types of techniques and applications range greatly with more than 24 different types. Each type is modified in various ways for the best result.

Tui Na, which means ‘pushing & grasping’, was created before acupuncture. After the development of Chinese medicine theory for herbal medicine and acupuncture, the system of Chinese massage was further developed. Historically, Chinese massage has been closely linked to the martial arts, as injuries commonly occur in practice and combat. Therefore, an effective and reliable method to treat those injuries was very important in order for soldiers to quickly return to the battlefield. Many famous martial artists were also very well-known Chinese medicine physicians.

Tui Na is not limited to treating external injuries, but is also very effective at treating internal conditions. In fact, for those who are severely ill, it is the main part of the treatment with very few needles, if any, being used.

Pediatric Tui Na is its own specialty with diagnosis and treatment methods unique to that branch. Tui Na is used to enhance the treatment goal.

Tui Na can range from very vigorous techniques to extremely light, gentle, and subtle, but with lasting effects nonetheless. The intensity is determined by the severity of the illness and the patient’s constitution.

As with most Asian bodywork styles, it is commonly done fully clothed.
