Your Wellness. Your Life.
Here at Acupuncture Body, we offer a variety of therapeutic services to help our patients live their best lives. In our practice, we treat pain, internal disorders, problems of the nervous system, and allergies.
Acupuncture therapy is one of the most ancient remedies for stimulating the body’s natural healing response and nervous system. Originally developed in China, acupuncture uses needles to stimulate specific points on the body to alleviate pain, combat seasonal allergies, and reduce stress.
Acupuncture works in reducing pain by interrupting pain signaling. Acting as a natural analgesic acupuncture promotes circulation and reduces pro inflammatory markers in the body. The acupuncture needle offers a small prompt by winding up the connective tissue, increasing electrical conductivity and restoring balance in the nervous system.
Integrated Myofascial Techniques
Through the healing power of touch, our therapeutic massage can assist with relaxation, recovery, and stress relief. Massage therapy offers many benefits, including improved circulation and detoxification, muscle relaxation, stress relief, reduced pain and swelling, and injury recovery. Christine often times suggests her patients ways to self massage using the most effective oils ranging from lavender, helichrysium essential oils, camphor, menthol, chinese, Ayurvedic balms to arnica and CBD oils in her practice.
Having practiced massage therapy in the past Christine often adds integrated myofascial techniques to her treatments. These techniques draw from eastern massage disciplines such as shiatsu, Thai yoga as well as western disciplines and Anatomy Trains.
Cupping and Gua Sha therapy are two forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Cupping is the act of applying suction to an area of the body by creating a vacuum, then releasing it to encourage blood flow and circulation. Like cupping, Gua Sha therapy involves rubbing a smooth hand-held bowl over the patient’s skin many times usually in a smooth downward motion to increase circulation and to relieve tension in the muscles.
