A holistic healthcare treatment, Acupuncture is a method of Chinese healing that originated thousands of years ago. According to Chinese medicine, several channels of energy flow through your body that can affect a group of organs, one organ or your general well-being. These energy channels are called meridians. Acupuncture uses the insertion of needles at specific meridians to manipulate the qi, (pronounced “chee”) which is energy. Although normally associated with pain relief, acupuncture offers numerous benefits, all without the side effects associated with pharmaceutical treatments.
Chinese Herbal Medicine provides powerful treatment to supplement the body and restore balance and health. Classic herbal formulas specifically designed to treat the symptoms, ailments, disease or imbalance in your body are prescribed. Used as a primary course of treatment or in conjunction with other Chinese Traditional Medicine methods such as acupuncture, herbal medicine is a very effective and natural alternative to traditional pharmaceutical medicines.
As part of Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies, Cupping is considered an effective treatment to increase blood flow, alleviate headaches or respiratory health conditions.
Electroacupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips.

“I’ve had knee pain for years because of arthritis and injuries. The acupuncture treatments I have received have really greatly reduced the chronic pain and therefore reduced the medications that I take. It’s great to have pain management alternatives.”

“Willa is great! After my first visit with Willa, I feel a lot better. We are addressing some specific issues. She answered all my questions, and we talked about things I didn’t think mattered, but which all plays a part in a persons’ well being. Give it a try!”

The ear has acupuncture points which accurately reflect the condition of the entire body. Auricular acupuncture is one of the more widely used microsystems within eastern medicine. Microsystems use one aspect of the body - for example, the ears, hands or feet - to treat conditions that are present anywhere in the body. Auricular acupuncture may be used as a primary mode of treatment or in conjunction with other treatments such as acupuncture, bodywork or herbal medicine.
