Chinese Medicine - it's never been only acupuncture needles.
A customized, private treatment every time, and we keep needles to a minimum. A concise selection of points ensures a powerful and cohesive treatment, yet can often target multiple health concerns instead of having to make a separate appointment for each concern.
Whether it is to take down swelling in an area, used as replenishment, or for another reason, moxa is powerful yet simple. It relies upon a plant in the artemesia family, and is either applied via a liniment or burned near specifically selected areas. Your acupuncturist will determine if it is right for you.
Tui na is a Chinese medical massage that is simultaneously both diagnostic and treatment. It is not standard muscular massage. It requires many hours of additional training, and enables Christine to utilize it instead of needles in some situations, especially with children or those who fear needles.
Liniments, Oils, Herbs
We will sometimes select specific liniments, oils, or herbal formulas to reduce pain, calm, and/or speed healing. These are powerful and add an additional layer to a comprehensive treatment plan customized for the patient.

Internal Medicine - Inflammation
A patient’s body was growing intestinal polyps rapidly with family history of colon cancer. Their MD prescribed colonoscopies every 3 months. We treated aggressively for 12 weeks. At their 3-month scope, they were told things had improved greatly and “next colonoscopy in 2 years”. At the 2 year re-scope, they were told they didn’t need another for 3 years. If things look good at that scope, they have been told interval will be 5 years.
This is a painful debilitating condition of the soles of the feet. A combination of tui na, sometimes acupuncture, and moxibustion has eliminated it entirely for some patients, and patients may begin to feel relief at the first treatment session.
