Esoteric Acupuncture combines various elements of alchemy, astrology, sacred geometry, the Kabalistic tree of life, and the Hindu Chakra system with Traditional Chinese Acupuncture points and philosophies to support one’s physical wellness and spiritual evolution; generating a higher awareness of one’s interconnectedness to the global and cosmic community. In Esoteric Acupuncture we use thinner needles retained for longer periods of time and positioned more superficially than with Traditional Acupuncture. Points are inserted in a specific encoding pattern and sequence corresponding to the Chakra of the pattern being applied. As a result, treatments tend to feel much deeper and far reaching than Traditional Acupuncture, as each pattern leads to a balanced state of harmony throughout all levels of your being…emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual. Esoteric Acupuncture is best known for being able to balance and fine-tune the whole body on an energetic level and especially benefits individuals interested in exploring and deepening their spiritual growth. $75 per treatment and includes other modalities such as cupping therapy, gua sha, massage, electro-acupuncture, and electro-muscular stimulation as needed.
A method of applying acupressure via air-suctioned glass cups that create a vacuum to suction the skin to the surface. It is an effective treatment for respiratory diseases such as the common cold/flu, bronchitis and asthma as well as treating musculoskeletal aches and pain. $45 per treatment.
NMES & Cold Laser Therapy
Neuromuscular electrical stimulation uses a safe, non-invasive, low frequency current that is applied to the muscles through electrodes on the skin. Electrical stimulation excites the nerves that innervate desired muscles, causing them to contract and therefore enhance motor learning, muscle re-education, strength and endurance. A lower setting, such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation or TENS, can aid in reducing swelling and pain. Cold laser therapy is low-intensity laser therapy that has been postulated to exert three main effects: reduction of pain, modulation of inflammation, and acceleration of healing. Cold laser therapy is used for minor injuries and sprains, aches and pains, and various skin problems.
The method of applying Gua Sha involves “scraping” the surface of the skin to elicit toxins or pathogens to treating pain, colds and flu symptoms. Gua Sha treatments are not painful. Areas of petechia may surface, depending on the severity of the stagnation of qi and blood. Gua sha, massage, and cupping therapy are often used together during an acupuncture treatment.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers an extremely valuable, rich, lengthy, and extensive herbal treatment history. Within it are thousands of years of development and research which we benefit from greatly today. As opposed to some forms of herbalism and western medicine, Chinese herbs are often used in formulas instead of being used singularly in larger amounts. Formulas allow you to blend herbs to enhance their positive effects and reduce or eliminate any negative side effects they may have. These formulas take years and years of practice to master and many are kept within families and or generations of teacher-student transmissions. This rich tradition is a very valuable gift from previous generations. The true benefit of this herbal tradition, as with acupuncture, is that it allows practitioners to blend formulas to match each patient and their signs and symptoms exactly. Instead of having a standard formula for a particular condition you can increase the clinical effectiveness of the herbs through this tailoring. For the patient this ideally means faster results with less side-effects. Traditional herbal formulas and custom formulas available.
