Treatment protocols are developed based on the individual patient’s needs. The initial visit involves an extensive health questionnaire, pulse and tongue diagnoses, and discussion of the medical history and current condition of the patient. The following services may be combined in treatment and are performed in a safe and sterile environment. Your path to natural healing starts here.

The initial visit involves a thorough consultation and exam which informs the diagnosis and treatment plan. The acupoints are cleaned with alcohol, needled, and stimulated appropriately. All needles used are very thin, sterile and disposable. They may be re-stimulated one or more times during the course of a session. Needles are usually retained for 20 to 30 minutes and the entire first visit usually lasts for 1.5-2 hours. Follow-up visits involve progress evaluation and re-examination. The needling protocol may be adjusted from week to week. A course of treatments is about 10 sessions. Some conditions require more than one course of treatment. Follow-up treatments usually last about 1 hour.

Women adding needles for micro needling therapy

Hyaluronic acid is applied topically while the practitioner gently glides the handheld microneedling device over the skin’s surface. The device causes mild trauma that initiates healing and stimulates new skin tissue growth. After the procedure, a soothing aloe mask is set on the face for 10 minutes. A customized serum, usually consisting of hyaluronic acid, apple stem cells and other collagen-stimulating ingredients, is then massaged into the skin for a moisturizing finish. There is relatively little recovery time and after a series of 6-8 sessions (spaced 5 weeks apart to allow the skin to heal), no maintenance is required. A lidocaine numbing cream may be used to prep the skin for maximum comfort for the duration of these hour-long treatments.

Facial Acupuncture

Facial acupuncture is a spa-like experience during which constitutional acupuncture is administered before a rejuvenating facial protocol. This customized protocol is designed to revitalize the body and address specific areas of the face, such as wrinkles, puffy eyes, sagging skin, and poor complexion. This involves a combination of acupuncture, facial poultices, microcurrent stimulation, and massage. The initial visit lasts about 2 hours. Follow-up visits include a reassessment of overall health and the condition of the face and last about 1.5 hours. 10 treatments (once a week for 10 weeks) are recommended.

Heat Therapy: Mineral-plated TDP lamp or a heat lamp is used to warm the affected area. Moxibustion: An herb, dried mugwort or “Moxa,” is burned over acupoints to warm the area and increase Qi and blood circulation. Electrical Stimulation: Leads from an electro-stimulator are attached to the needles to provide a constant, mild electrical stimulation to the acupoints. Cupping: A vacuum is created with glass or plastic cups placed on the skin; this suction effect increases Qi and blood circulation in the area.

After a comprehensive medical history and evaluation are completed and a diagnosis made, the patient is prescribed a formula to take on a daily basis for a period of time. The herbs dispensed are all from reputable companies with high-quality control standards. Most often, the formula is given in a convenient pill form. Occasionally, topical remedies are given or applied directly to the skin. Follow-up visits involve re-evaluation and may result in a continuation, an adjustment, or a discontinuation of the current formula, depending on the progress of the case.

Tui Na and Acupressure

Generally, this modality is used in conjunction with acupuncture. The patient is briefly massaged with intensive Tui Na techniques either before or after an acupuncture treatment. For patients who are needle-phobic, acupressure is used in lieu of needles to bring about a similar effect. The amount of pressure or force applied during treatment is gauged according to the patient’s feedback and his/her/their constitution.

Qi Gong Therapy

A patient may be instructed on one or more Qi Gong exercises tailored to his/her/their specific needs. This may require more than one method, and the practices may involve quiet seated meditation, movement or a breathing exercise. In follow-up visits, progress is assessed, the exercise regimen is reviewed and new exercises may be introduced. Qi Healing: The patients energy field is scanned for any imbalances by the practitioner. Any detectable energy blockages are then addressed, which may be experienced as gentle heat or a subtle tingling sensation. A session usually lasts anywhere from 15-30 minutes, but some cases may require more time
