CLINIC

Treatments are tailored specifically to your needs.

 

When you come to the clinic, we will conduct an interview and assessment to determine which treatment modalities you need that day. Just as no two people are the same, our treatments vary depending on the person and the situation. Below are the main treatment modalities we may use in a session.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture involves the direct stimulation of points or areas along specific meridian (channel) pathways on the body. It is a safe, minimally invasive way to treat many issues such as pain, stress, internal imbalances, and more. Our clinic uses both Classical and Traditional methods.

JIN SHOU TUINA™
(Chinese Orthopedic Massage)

 

Tuina is an ancient form of bodywork and manual therapy passed down from our martial arts lineage. It integrates Taiwanese Manual Therapy, Traditional Thai Massage, and Western CranioSacral Therapy. Jin Shou Tuina is able to address both acute illness as well as many chronic conditions, injuries, and pain.

CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a hands-on modality that directly treats the central nervous system through subtle manipulation of the cranial bones and soft tissues. CST is effective in releasing restrictions of the nervous system that cause pain and dysfunction. 

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE

 

Chinese herbal medicines treat the underlying causes of illness rather than just symptoms. They have been studied, documented, and used successfully for thousands of years in China and around the world. Our clinic has a bulk herb pharmacy and a selection of bottled formulas. We may prescribe you a custom or patent herb formula to address your condition.
