Acupuncture has been used as a successful healing practice in the east for over three millenniums! In the west, acupuncture has become one of the most researched natural healthcare systems. Studies have shown acupuncture to be successful in treating chronic illness, joint pain, muscle pain, sports injuries, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, sleep issues, psychologically disorders, immune deficiencies or excesses, and respiratory issues, to name a few. Acupuncture is clinically proven treatment for recovery from all types of addictions, including nicotine to opioids. Many parents are able to thank acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine for addressing their fertility issues. Women can find benefits from acupuncture for health issues such as PMS, irregular periods, menopause, fibroids and cysts.

Electric stimulation, abbreviated as eStim, is a continuous electric pulse that can be added to acupuncture needles to stimulate acupuncture points more powerfully. This allows injuries to heal faster and is helpful for neurological disorders, and as a pain reliever for muscle spasms and nerve issues (such as sciatica). Do not use estim if you have a history of seizures, epilepsy, heart disease, strokes or a pacemaker.
Motor Point eStim is a muscle-specific electrical stimulation treatment where the injured muscles are isolated, needled into the motor point—where the nerves that control contraction innervate the muscle—and stimulated with an electrical current to cause the muscles to jump in rhythmic contractions and then relax. Motor point stimulation releases tight muscles and knots, strengthens the injured muscle, increases range of motion, and reduces pain.
Semi-permanent ear needles are a way to bring acupuncture home with you. We have 3 different options, ear seeds, ear tacts and semi-permanent ear needles (SPN). Ear seeds are the gentlest and do not penetrate the skin, ear tacts have a small needle that penetrates just into the skin, and then the strongest of the three, SPN, which anchor into the ear. Ear needles allow the actions of acupuncture to last longer and are especially good for stress and addiction, but can also increase the efficacy of pain treatments and many other conditions.
