Acupuncture can effect changes in the sugar, cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. It can promote better functioning of the gastrointestinal system and the activity of the endocrine system. Acupuncture also works with the body to harmonize and balance the energy levels. It improves circulation and allows the body to heal itself more quickly and more completely.
Acupuncture is an incredibly useful technique for treating sports injuries and improving performance. Muscle motor point and trigger point needling (sometimes referred to as dry needling) stimulate the motor point nerve bundle to “reset” the muscle, relaxing it if too tight or helping it to work properly if it’s weak. Electro-acupuncture is like the estim pads used in training rooms everywhere, but penetrates deeper into muscles to reduce inflammation, relax tight muscles and reduce healing time. Acupuncture has been shown to improve the body’s healing response by increasing blood circulation and nerve function. Combining acupuncture with massage therapy and nutritional consultations, we’ll keep you healthy and performing your best.
Medical massage is used to evaluate and treat soft tissue injuries. The massage therapist has received specialized and specific education and works with the injured area only. It is more inten(siv)e than regular relaxation massage and can be effective in treating many conditions such as whiplash, rotator cuff injuries, headaches, low back pain, muscle spasms, and more. Combined with acupuncture it is very effective to decrease pain and improve range of motion. It reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema, and can be used to reduce and realign scar tissue after healing has occurred. It also provides exercise for atrophied muscles and restores structural balance to your body.
Our massage therapist is trained in a variety of techniques to provide relaxation and support your overall health. Massage therapy increases circulation, relaxes and softens over-used muscles, reduces spasms and cramps, increases flexibility, releases endorphins, and promotes good physical and mental health.
Chinese Herbal Medicine is a natural and effective way to treat many health problems. It is used not only to treat one symptom but to bring your whole body back into balance. This aims to improve the whole body’s function and the relief of many symptoms.
It’s our belief that the food we put in our bodies is the single most important predictor of health. But with seemingly endless options, advertising and conflicting scientific studies it can be very difficult deciding what to eat. We work with you to simplify the best research and help you eat well.
