Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a beautiful and powerful medicine where tiny needles are inserted into specific points in the body to optimize function, promote healing, and calm the system. Come see me while I intern at the AOMA Student Clinic! Book a session and learn how truly healthy you can become.

Other needle-free modalities include:

  • TuiNa: a form of Asian bodywork similar to massage.

  • Cupping: using suction to create space in the body tissue and promote circulation.

  • Guasha: using a tool to ‘scrape’ the body to facilitate circulation.

  • Chinese Herbs: prescribing specific herbs based on each specific patient’s needs to maximize health and support the body’s natural healing process.

  • Moxibustion/Moxa: igniting the mugwort herb on top of needles or directly on the body to enhance circulation and bring extra warmth and nourishment.

  • Acu-pressure/Acu-laser: using various tools to activate acu-points without needle insertion

  • Much more: electrical stimulation, magnet therapy, nutrition support, etc.
