What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture, or more accurately, Acu-Moxa therapy, is a 2000+ year old therapeutic system. It originated in ancient China and spread to other countries in East Asia. The practice consists of techniques that utilize needles and a combustible plant fiber known as Moxa that are applied to the skin and other superficial tissues of the body to produce specific therapeutic effects.
What type of acupuncture is practiced here?
Our Acupuncturist uses a Japanese technique that utilizes the finest gauge needles with insertion depths of only a few millimeters. This stands in contrast to the far more prevalent Chinese system of treatment known as TCM that uses larger needles and deeper insertions to produce a sensation of soreness or heaviness around the needle.
How does acupuncture work?
The most likely explanation is that Acupuncture is able to cause functional changes in the operation of the nervous system in the body, such as the function of the endocrine (hormonal) or the circulatory systems. Acupuncture also seems to have a direct effect on the motor and sensory serves of the body which regulate muscular tension as well as the transmission of pain.
How many sessions are needed?
Acupuncture is best used as an ongoing therapy that seeks to maintain the physiological balance of the body’s self-healing response, thereby preventing the occurance of disease. The number of treatments necessary will depend on any number of factors related to the individual patient and will be discussed during the initial assessment and treatment. Most clients will feel some change to their symptoms within a few treatments although more time is often necessary to resolve the problem.
What can acupuncture treat?
Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of complaints, which include, but are not limited to:
Post-workout recovery by speeding up the clearance of lactic acid and can remedy many signs of overtraining such as joint and tendon strain.
Musculoskeletal pain ranging from the common complaints of neck, shoulder, low back, and sciatic pain to rheumatoid or osteoarthritis.
Digestive complaints ranging from irritable bowel syndrome and heartburn to ulcerative colitis.
Allergies that produce respiratory symptoms (allergic rhinitis, asthma, etc)
Gynecological concerns such as menstrual irregularity, menstrual pain, infertility, or perimenopausal symptoms.
Our massage therapists are experienced professionals who exceed the state standards in training and continuing education. Our goal is to help you attain lasting results within a cozy, relaxing environment. Our staff specialize in one or more of the following styles:
The best-known type of massage; sometimes described as a “relaxation massage.” This full-body treatment will ease tension, increase blood oxygen levels, decrease muscle toxins, and improve circulation.
Using similar techniques as Swedish massage, deep tissue treatments use more pressure to release muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia.
Neuromuscular therapists aim to bring balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. NMT releases tissues in layers - superficial to deep - include pain-causing trigger points.
The Kinesio Taping Method provides support and stability to muscles and joints without affecting range of motion. Kinesio Tex Tape is applied over the muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused muscles and support muscles 24 hours per day.
Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared towards athletes. Using a various techniques, the therapist is able to achieve a specific goal when working on the athlete. It is often used to help prevent injury, prepare the body for athletic active, maintain optimal condition, and/or help athletes recover.

Structural Integration aligns & balances the body by lengthening & repositioning the fascia. When restricted fascia is released, the muscles move more fluidly & efficiently, allowing the body to return to its aligned & balanced state.
what is structural integration?
Developed by Dr. Ida P. Rolf in the 1940s and fine-tuned by her at Esalen Institute in California and later in Boulder, Colorado, Structural Integration combines hands-on manipulation of the body with movement re-education. Whereas other forms of bodywork like massage focus on the manipulation of muscle tissue, Structural Integration focuses on the manipulation of the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds the muscles.
what is fascia?
Fascia is the stretchy membranous webbing that surrounds and connects muscles, ligaments, tendons, organs, and bones. Fascia is so integral to our body’s structure that it influences the way we breathe, stretch, walk, jump, and move.
Fascia can become hardened and thickened by injury, accident, age or postural habits. The goal of structural integration is to release the fascia enough for muscles to relax and stretch, and for joints to reorganize themselves. Using gentle pressure at key points on the fascial layer, therapists manipulate the superficial fascia with their fingers, palms, and forearms to bring the release–and relief–the body has been waiting for.
what can structural integration help with?
Low back pain, sports injuries, chronic headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, tight neck and shoulders, plantar fasciitis, sciatica, TMJ syndrome, pain associated with nervous system disorders and more!
