Traditional Chinese Medicine
TCM acupuncture involves the use of fine needles inserted through the skin to stimulate energetic pathways, stimulating the nervous system. This treatment is most often used for mood imbalances, stress management, digestion, hormonal imbalances, fertility and neonatal care.
Myofascial Acupuncture Release Therapy
Dr. Kristin Spark, ND finds this treatment modality significantly reduces pain and helps with chronic injuries. Trigger points are stimulated with needles, to elicit a localized neurological response, and reflexive relaxation of tight, sore, aching muscles.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Very fine needles are inserted into the body and into the face. This technique offers a natural approach to address your cosmetic concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles, baggy eyes, crows feet, laugh lines, etc. Typically 6-10 treatments are required over 2-3 months, beyond which maintenance treatments may be required every few months. Treatment lengths are 1 hour, 15 minutes in duration.
Body Fat Analysis
The Skulpt assessment tool is used to take a body fat measurement of the upper arm, quadricep and abdomen which provides a global assessment of body composition. This is a superior way to measure body fat over weight scales and hand-held devices.
Cupping is a traditional Chinese practice that uses spherical “cups” to create a vacuum on the skin, lifting the skin and underlying tissues. Traditionally, this practice is used for relieving stagnation, such as respiratory congestion (i.e.. common cold, pneumonia). This practice is also used to bring blood flow to the area, move lymph fluid, stimulate the nervous system and relax sore muscles. 30 minute sessions are offered.
