Acupuncture with Needles
A healing system that nourishes and promotes the life-giving energy of the body, Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles into points (places along energy pathways (meridians)) where energy is easily accessed. 

Acupuncture Without Needles
MEA (Microlight Electro-Acupuncture Therapy) - for pain and injury, Microlight Therapy is a unique treatment system for pain relief, injury rehab, and facial / skin rejuvenation. It combines microcurrent and light therapy. 

Microcurrents are gentle electrical currents that you may not feel at all. Yet, this therapy has proven to result in rapid pain relief and improved range of motion. Using the same theories that have been applied to acupuncture for thousands of years microcurrent and color light can be used in place of needles.

ELR (Electro Light Therapy) - Developed according to the principles of Oriental Medicine, this innovation works in harmony with the natural energy systems of the body. ELR's combination of microcurrent and therapeutic light and color (TLC) is a unique non-invasive, holistic system that provides a whole body renewal that results in more youthful, glowing skin and a relaxed, energized body. 

Low Level Lasers - FDA approved low level laser light can reduce pain and accelerate healing by minimizing swelling and increasing blood flow. 
Using the herb mugwort directly to the skin or needle, heat is applied to the points to warm, nourish and/or move the qi.
Gua Sha 
The skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument; that results in the appearance of small red dots (petechiae) called 'Sha', that will fade over time.  Raising Sha removes blood stagnation, promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes resulting in immediate relief from pain, stiffness and swelling
Chinese Herbs 
Herbal medicine seeks to correct internal imbalances rather than to treat symptoms alone, and is designed to encourage self-healing. Chinese herbs are combined to create balance. 
Administered by creating sucking in a cup placing it at a specific location on the patient's skin. Because of the vacuum created inside the cup, the patient's skin then rises up inside the cup and blood flow rushes to the area.
