Acupuncture is an effective way to balance the body and help alleviate many disorders including pain of almost any severity and location, sports Injuries, lyme disease, digestive disorders, neuropathy, headaches including migraines, anxiety/depression/PTSD/stress as well as many others (Please feel free to ask if we can help you.)
Individual points will be carefully chosen according to what ails you and how you personally are presenting. What that means is 2 people could come in with back pain and receive 2 different treatments, everything is individualized for the person sitting in front of me. The needles used are extremely small. We are well versed in treating patients who are afraid of needles.
During your Acupuncture treatment we may utilize different techniques such as electro-acupuncture, warm needle technique, cupping as well as others to create the ideal treatment plan for you.
Although acupuncture is very effective, herbs, for certain disorders, will be more effective in helping the body heal. Like the acupuncture points chosen, each herb is chosen not only for its individual effects, but for its synergistic effects with the other herbs in your customized formula. The purpose is to help restore balance in the body and to correct the underlying root cause, in order to alleviate and prevent symptoms.
Qigong is a fantastic way to calm the mind and center the body. Patients have reported qigong helped ease their anxiety, reduce stress, feel more centered and balanced and helped them sleep. We often do classes over telemedicine so you can do this in the comfort of your own home. Call or email to learn how to sign up.
What is Cosmetic Acupuncture?
The Mei Zen cosmetic Acupuncture system utilizes an ancient needling technique that is very superficial. This technique brings Qi and increases circulation to the face which can improve and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. As this system is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine, it uses acupuncture point selections on the body to complete the balancing of energy. This results in an overall rejuvenating effect of body, mind and spirit. We not only work on the beauty of your face but the overall health of your body!
How it works:
Cosmetic Acupuncture targets the dermis layer of the skin creating micro-traumas. These small micro-traumas increase circulation to the face and neck improving the production of collagen and elastin. This helps fill in those pesky lines and wrinkles.
