ACU-MASSAGE

60 minutes, $105

Combination of acupuncture and massage to relieve muscle tension, reduce stress and improve circulatory health. Acupuncture on neuromuscular junctions of muscle and nerve, known as motor points to release muscle tension followed by Chinese massage. Best for chronic tension of neck, back, hip and legs. Also great for fibromyalgia.

warming moxibustion

60 minutes, $95 (Special during Jan 2023, $75)

Moxibustion is the use of a charcoal stick containing the herb mugwort. As the stick is held over acupoints, it stimulates the area and heals congestion by pulling out Damp and Cold locked deep inside tissues. A few specific areas either on the back or on the abdomen are the typical locations for moxibustion. Non-invasive and very delicious. May also include acupuncture and massage. Best for dsymenorrhea, pelvic pain, low back pain, and cramping of muscles.

CUPPING

60 minutes, $95

Glass cups are stronger than plastic counterparts because they are heavy and can release a greater amount of stress and stagnation. Cupping is used for muscle tension but it is also helpful for many health issues including sluggish digestion, back pain, asthma, allergies, and more. It is a great option for those who are fearful of acupuncture, or who are sensitive.

ear reflexology/auricular

45 minutes, $65

Auricular (ear) treatment includes massage of the entire ear to stimulate the vagus (parasympathetic nervous system) followed by placement of seeds or crystals on specific points on the ear. The ear is a small but mighty microsystem that works to address the entire body. Auricular treatment is sometimes added onto regular acupuncture, however, a focused auricular session is a wonderful way to experience ear medicine. Ear seeds can stay in situ on the ear for 5-7 days.

Testimonials

Michelle does an excellent job listening to clients needs. I’ve had a few injuries on my shoulders and knees which she’s addressed with upmost care. My pain has lessened and I am able to keep engaging in activities I enjoy. Would strongly recommend.

Grabiel Soto

Michelle has helped me so much! She considered not just the main issue I have from an injury, but how an autoimmune problem was hindering the healing process. Now that she has gotten my immune system out of attack mode, my injury is getting better. A friend referred me to her, and I am forever grateful! Acupuncture can be so helpful, just remember that your results depend heavily on who does it!
