Bodywork, or massage therapy, is the manual manipulation of soft tissues in the body in order to relax muscles, recover from injury, reduce stress, and improve overall wellbeing. We offer many different styles of bodywork including subtle/structural bodywork, table shiatsu, craniosacral, and Swedish massage.
Cupping is much like the inverse of massage, but rather than applying pressure to muscles, it uses gentle suction to pull them upward, creating a relaxing and relieving sensation. Cupping is great for relaxing tight muscles, relieving stress, and helping to disperse congestion in the chest after a cold.

We are big advocates of herbal medicine and its efficacy in balancing the body’s systems and underlying disease patterns. An herbal medicine regimen allows for an individualized treatment that is a part of the patient’s daily routine, helping to speed up the healing process of most conditions while quickly reducing external symptoms. A week's worth of a granular formula, similar to instant coffee, is mixed in our clinic and dispensed on site. A follow-up visit with your provider is recommended to track your progress and to make adjustments to your formula as your condition improves.
These treatments are held in a private room allowing for more one-on-one time with your acupuncturist.

A variety of additional modalities can be used which are not available in the community setting, including essential oils, cupping, moxabustion (a type of heat-therapy) and heat lamps. Initial visits are more in-depth and cost $95; follow up visits are $75.
