Acupuncture is a Traditional Chinese Medicine therapy practiced for over 3000 years.

It is how we fine tune the circulation to achieve optimal functioning of your entire body, providing more nourishing and faster healing to the tissues and organs for a better recovery and a life free of pain.


Acupuncture is practically painless as we use very fine needles which do not damage tissues. Actually, most people feel incredibly relaxed and refreshed after a treatment.


Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, is a classic therapy used to treat a variety of different conditions, using over 300 herbal formulas (combination) .


Our practitioners prepare customized herbal formulations according to your individual needs.


The assessment of the soft tissue and joints of the body and the treatment and prevention of physical dysfunction and pain of the soft tissues and joints by manipulation to develop, maintain, rehabilitate or augment physical function, or relieve pain.

Fire Cupping

Fire Cupping is also an ancient technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Cupping is a wonderful way to enhance circulation in the tissues, relieving tension and pain while reducing inflammation.

Though cupping can left some interesting marks, you may be shocked at how much tension and pain vanished after a treatment.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha, also called scrapping, utilizes a specific technique where your practitioner will gently enhance blood flow to an area.
Rubbing the skin's surface breaks any stagnation, bringing up a small mark, while reducing inflammation and promote healing in the tissues.
