About this service
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), that focuses on the stimulation of acupuncture points to correct imbalances in the body. The points fall along channels called meridians. Acupuncture uses these meridians to cause change throughout the body. Each treatment is customized to meet each individuals needs. You may receive one or more adjunctive techniques during a treatment. Adjunctive techniques are techniques other than needling that are used to direct the qi and blood in specific ways. Some adjunctive techniques you might expect to have are moxibustion (moxa), gwa sha, cupping, etc. For more information about each adjunct technique, see our FAQ page. Herbal formulas can normally be made based off acupuncture appointments.
