Acupuncture can be utilized to relieve pain and stimulate optimal function of the organ and nervous systems, as well as improve mood and decrease the stress response in the body. It causes micro trauma in the body, stimulating a healing response by increasing circulation, relaxing local muscles, and increasing neurotransmitter levels (I.e. happy hormones.)
Acupuncture meridians have also been shown to be the pathways of stem cells! This means that a rejuvenation aspect of healing is stimulated with acupuncture treatments!
Often, essential oils and flower essences are used on acupuncture points during treatment as needed as well.

Movement is often encouraged. In Chinese medicine moving the Qi (life force energy) aids in health and healing processes.
Patients are guided on movement practices that vary according to patient capability.

The Earth projects a natural Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) that stimulates cell repair and overall health in all lifeforms. Studies have shown that the PEMF given off by the Earth is equally as important to human health as food, water, sleep, and sunlight.
PEMF devices were originally used by NASA to maintain the health of astronauts in orbit.
PEMF therapy balance cells, tissues and the body's functions at fundamental levels.
PEMFs have been found to reduce chronic, damaging inflammation. In this way, PEMF helps decrease pain and tension.
PEMF has also been shown to improve circulation, sleep and stress, stimulate the immune system, help with nerve function and increase energy!
Our HAELO PEMF device offers 10 programs designed to help get you to your health goals.

The most common reason patients get acupuncture is for pain. This includes joint pain (even bone on bone), musculoskeletal pain, headaches, menstrual pain, nerve pain (like neuropathy and sciatica), and more.
With the release and regulation of neurotransmitters, acupuncture is a great option for mood complaints and disorders as a solo treatment option or as a co-treatment with pharmaceuticals, therapy and western medicine.
Insomnia comes in many forms. For anyone who has a hard time falling asleep, staying asleep, and/or wants a deeper quality of sleep, acupuncture can help.
Weight issues are a symptom of digestion, hormones and/or filtration not working optimally. While acupuncture cannot just melt fat away (unfortunately), our goal is to jumpstart the body into a healthier state and give you the tools and support you need to change your lifestyle to one that syncs with your weight goals.
Chinese medicine looks at how the body functions as a whole. There isn't much we can't work with.
An easy way to look at the differences in Eastern and Western medicine is that western/allopathic medicine is wonderful for acute and life threatening while eastern/traditional is better for chronic and prevention.
