We have some exciting news, we have expanded our Acupuncture services to four days a week with three new acupuncturists who will join our long-standing Doctor, Hamid Malek-Madani. We know many of you rely on massage treatments for pain and stress relief and we encourage you to explore how acupuncture can similarly help you with these issues.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest medicines in the world and is very successful at treating pain and stress along with many other conditions, which for many people have been amplified during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We understand that acupuncture may be scary for some people who have a fear of needles but we would love to change that for our clients.

Acupuncture is more than just treatment with needles; it is a specialized tailored session for each client. In addition, there are many added services to acupuncture including cupping, gua sha, and herbal remedies that offer the same benefits as massage. There are times when we won’t use needles at all during your service

IMG 0141 Cupping

Cupping is one of the best deep-tissue therapies available. It is thought to affect tissues up to four inches deep from the external skin. Cupping uses suction and negative pressure to loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pain, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. Cupping releases toxins, blockages can be cleared, and veins and arteries can be refreshed within these four inches of affected materials. Hands, wrists, legs, and ankles can also be ‘cupped,’ thus applying the healing to specific organs that correlate with these points.

Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient Chinese healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health and addressing issues like chronic pain. As a natural healing remedy, gua sha is safe. It’s not supposed to be painful, but the procedure may change the appearance of your skin with redness or bruising that will go away within a couple of days. Gua sha is available only with Ruben.

Traditional Chinese herbal medicine (TCM) has evolved over thousands of years. TCM practitioners use various mind and body practices (such as acupuncture and tai chi) as well as herbal products to address health issues including stroke, heart disease, mental disorders, and respiratory diseases (such as bronchitis and the common cold). A national survey showed that about one in five Americans use traditional Chinese herbal medicine.
