Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine needles into the body's surface at particular acupuncture points to promote optimal health and prevent disease.  These points are located within energetic channels or meridians found throughout the body.  It is within these channels that our qi/ energy is located.

Moxibustion is the application of thermal stimulation to specific parts of the body.  This therapeutic practice consists of burning the herb artermisia princeps (vulgaris), also know as mugwart, on acupuncture points to warm and facilitate healing and help restore balance.


Chinese herbal medicine may be administerd alone or included with acupuncture treatments when additional, daily nourishment is needed.  Herbal prescriptions consist of several herbs that are combined to meet the clients specific health needs.  Unlike western drug prescriptions, Chinese herbs address the systemic problem rather than just treating the symptoms.  Types of preparation include tea, tincture, pills or washes.
