Chinese Acupuncture


Acupuncture originated more than 5,000 years ago in traditional Chinese medicine.

It’s a system of complementary medicine in which pain-free fine needles are inserted in the skin at specific points along what are considered to be lines of energy (meridians), which may help patients manage a range of symptoms.

Tui Na

Tui Na
(Chinese deep tissue remedial massage)

Tui na (pronounced “twee naw”) refers to a wide range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) such as therapeutic body work and massage. It literally translates to “pinch and pull”, though it feels more like kneading to relieve pressure.

Tui na is primarily used as a treatment to address specific patterns of disharmony.


Therapeutic cupping treatment creates a vacuum in a glass cup, and when it is applied to the skin, the tissue is drawn up. This increases the blood flow, loosens the fascia or connective tissue, and is thought to stimulate healing.

Functionally it is similar to the way deep tissue massage may break up scar tissue and reduce pain.
