What We Do
Acupuncture is a gentle and effective method to help manage your health. Acupuncture uses needles that are as thin as human hair. They are solid, thin, and the tip comes to a point. Most patients report little to no sensation upon insertion. Some people feel a small pinch. Once the needle passes through the surface of the skin, patients often feel nothing. Occasionally a sense of heaviness, dull ache, or tingling might accompany the experience.
This 20–30 minute therapy is calming. Many people fall asleep during treatment and report feeling refreshed afterward.
Cupping therapy is thousands of years old. Many cultures have used it to rid the body of disease and improve the physical structure. Acupuncturists use cupping extensively to release tight muscles and resolve stagnation of blood and energy (Qi) due to a number of causes, including physical injury and various ailments.

Moxa or Moxibustion is traditional Japanese healing technique where an acupoint is warmed with an herbal leaf that has been dried and rolled into tiny pieces as small as a grain of rice. This heat that is generated is an infrared heat that penetrates deep inside the body, stimulating blood flow, circulation and cellular healing. Rice-grain moxa is very comfortable and very relaxing.

Onnetsuki Infrared Therapy
Onnetsu therapy is an autoimmune health care method that warms up the body using heat through physical stimulation which in turn helps blood circulation to improve health. The specialized medical device is designed and based on the modern science of far infrared discovered by NASA and the ancient traditional Japanese moxibustion concept that unhealthy cells are cold and lack energy.
Onnetsu therapy searches for those cold spots deep inside our body. It applies far infrared waves using the theories of acupuncture and moxibustion. The invisible waves of energy have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body.
