Acupuncture Treatments

TCM Acupuncture: Acupuncturists insert thin, single-use needles into specific points along meridians of Qi in the body. Acupuncturists chooses these points based on goals of the patient, patient intake, assessment from the tongue and pulse as well as any other observations/assessments. Acupuncture can be both powerful and gentle and used to move stubborn blockages of Qi and pain and/or matters of the Heart / Mind / Spirit.

Japanese Acupuncture: Suitable for children, elderly, those recovering from severe illness, and anyone put off by needles. The needles used in this technique are smaller and more delicate than Chinese needles. Japanese style acupuncture utilizes a strong emphasis on touch/palpation as a diagnostic tool to establish the correct treatment plan using minimal number of needles.

Orthopedic Acupuncture: Focuses on myofascial as well as trigger and motor point release techniques, and innervation zones with the goal to restore or improve bio-mechanical function. It aids the treatment of pain, soft tissue injuries, postural imbalances, and other biomechanical disorders. Conditions such as arthritis, tendonitis, ligament strains, repetitive movement stress, postural stress pathologies, nerve pain, trauma injuries, and other chronic or acute conditions can be treated with Orthopedic Acupuncture.

Cosmetic or Facial Acupuncture: Involves inserting needles to stimulate the skin and underlying muscles of the face, scalp and neck. The goal is to improve the skin’s appearance by encouraging blood flow, collagen and elastin, which can help reduce puffiness, wrinkles, fine lines and other signs of aging over a series of treatments. While cosmetic acupuncture is generally safe, the most common side effects are bruising, local inflammation, and temporary exacerbation of existing conditions (acne or redness).

Battlefield Acupuncture (BFA) was developed by Dr. Richard Niemtzow in 2001 while on active duty in the US Air Force. BFA uses tiny (0.1mm) semi-permanent needles (ASP) in the ear as an alternate to opiod medications as a rapid and highly effective relief of nearly all types of pain, both acute and chronic. The ASP needles remain in place for 3-5 days allowing for continued treatment and relief.
