Acupuncture is an ancient whole system medicine treating just about every ailment and disorder in the human experience. In modern Western terms, acupuncture uses very thin needles, about the size of a human hair, to optimize the body's natural bio-electrical communication, encouraging cellular communication within the whole body. Traditionally acupuncture brings balance and harmony to the natural flow of Qi (sounds like chi) in the body. All illness and pain stems from an imbalance (whether it is stagnation, deficiency, or excess) and manifests as specific symptoms that can be treated more efficiently when the cause of the imbalance is understood. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) not only consists of acupuncture, but also herbal treatments, Tui na (Chinese medical massage), cupping, moxibustion, and Gua sha (promoting healthy circulation). In China, TCM uses herbs for about 80% of treatments and acupuncture about 20% of the time. Here in the United States, those percentages are generally flipped.

Though this service actually happens in the studio, we consider it a clinical service. Community Acupuncture offers a full service acupuncture treatment in a community setting. Though you still get one-on-one work with the acupuncturist, you will be in our studio with a small group of others who are also receiving acupuncture. This community setting allows for a more affordable option to get the care desired when seeking acupuncture. This runs on a sliding fee scale. We suggest a range of $25-$45 for the initial treatment and $20-$40 for your follow up treatments, but you are encouraged to pay what is feasabel for you and your buget. Your appointment time will be approximately one hour.

Lymphatic Massage

Schedule with Melissa at 
Well Living Massage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle massage that uses light pressure to help encourage drainage of lymph that can accumulate in your lymphatic system. It helps detoxify your body's immune system, as well as stimulate it to help the system wrok more effectively. There are many benefits from MLD. The lypmhatic system plays a key role in the body's immune defense. Like blood in the circulatory system, lymphatic fluid is always moving. If it stops, swelling can occur, often in the legs and arms. MLD also reduces bloating, brain fog, tiredness, allergies, and digestive problems.

Harmony Hands Reiki

Reiki is a hands-on, natural, energetic healing using the universal life force energy. The term comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki, an abundant, gentle spiritual energy is not tied to any specific religion or nationality. At the simplest level, it appears that Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does a person move toward their own balance in body, mind and spirit, the body's own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.

CranioSacral Therapy is an extremely gentle manual therapy that helps to release restrictions that impede the function of the membranes and fluids that surround your brain and spinal cord known as your craniosacral system. CranioSacral Therapy treatment may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain and side effects of cancer treatment among many others. A practitioner works with the bones of the skull and the pelvis, releasing tensions deep in the central nervous system so that every other system in the body can relax and self-correct. It helps you naturally free yourself from pain, stress, and discomfort. This affects, in turn, the deeper layers of membranes and cerebrospinal fluids in the spinal canal, the brain, and the spinal cord itself.

Cupping has been all the rage since Michael Phelps had cupping marks during the olympics in 2016. Cupping is actually an anceint form of bodywork used in multiple cultures for thousands of years. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been the culture to bring it into our current everyday use. It is a technique that uses suction on the body to move stagnant blood and tight tissue. It is common to have circular "bruise" or "hickey" marks left in the area the cup was. When used with massage, cupping can be a great adjunct to pain management. In Chinese Medicine, cupping can be used for boosting the immune system, reducing edema, and many other things alongside of pain management.

Before the discovery of electricity, an acupuncturist was often expected to manually manipulate or twist acupuncture needles placed within their patient at various speeds (eg; 2 times per second). This often resulted in greater effectiveness of the treatment for certain cases. Now, we can use specially designed electronics to recreate and embellish those earlier techniques with greater accuracy and efficiency. Electro-acupuncture can be very effective in resolving chronic pain, chronic headaches, and other conditions.

Myofascial Release

Schedule with Debra at
Red Cedar Healing

A highly specialized stretching technique used by therapists to treat patients with a variety of soft tissue problems. Fascia is a thin tissue that covers all the organs of the body. This tissue covers every muscle and every fiber within each muscle. All muscle stretching, then, is actually stretching of the fascia and the muscle, the myofascial unit. When muscle fibers are injured, the fibers and the fascia which surrounds it become short and tight. This uneven stress can be transmitted through the fascia to other parts of the body, causing pain and a variety of other symptoms in areas often wouldn’t expect. Myofascial Release treats these symptoms by releasing the uneven tightness in injured fascia.
