AcupunctureAcupuncture

Acupuncture is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese Medicine have used this noninvasive medical system to diagnose and help millions of people get well and stay healthy.

Your acupuncturist will place extremely fine, sterile needles at specific acupoints on the body. This activates the body's Qi and and promotes natural healing by enhancing the body's innate recuperative powers, immune system and physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.

The non-surgical Mei Zen cosmetic acupuncture procedure is a holistic, natural and comprehensive skin rejuvenation program designed to restore, rejuvenate and relax.

Custom Herbal FormulasCustom Herbal Formulas

Herbs can be a powerful adjunct to acupuncture care. They can strengthen your body, or clear it of excess problems like a cold, fever, or acute pain. Herbs can be used daily.  Sometimes your practitioner may suggest starting with herbs, and then adding acupuncture to your treatment. They will do this in order to build up your internal strength so your body can receive the full benefits acupuncture has to offer.

Marcy creates customized herbal formulas that specifically target your individual needs.  Often, she can mix your formula on the spot during your treatment, so you can get immediate benefits from the herbal therapy.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping TherapyCupping is a therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi by applying suction through a small glass or plastic cup. Often used to relieve sore muscles, tension, or neck pain, this simple technique can often be more effective than drugs. Cupping can also be used to treat colds by breaking up congestion. 

Your acupuncturist will place small glass or plastic "cups" over specific areas on your body.  A vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction.  They may be moved over an affected area of left in place.  You may leave the office looking at though a large octopus gave you a big hug.  There is no need for alarm.  The slight redness will quickly dissipate.

Think of cupping as an inside out massage, a pulling force rather than a pushing one. Cupping, in a sense, drains stress and soreness, leaving patients feeling rejuvenated. 

Gwa Sha Gwa Sha (or Gua Sha)

Gwa Sha (or Gua Sha) is another technique used to release muscle tension, tightness and constriction. A specialized tool is used to gently scrape or rub the skin over a problem area. Gwa Sha feels a bit like deep massage. This too may leave some slight redness that will also quickly dissipate.

Tui Na

Tui Na translates as “push grasp.” It is a massage technique that moves Chi in various parts of the body. It is used to relieve muscle pain, tension and inflammation and to heal injuries.   

Moxibustion

MoxibustionMoxibustion is a treatment that uses an herb called Mugwort. It may be burned above the skin to move the Qi through warming specific Acupoints. Moxibustion in specific circumstances is used to quicken the healing process.
