Main Massage and Acupuncture
Several years ago, I was a very driven, job-focused perfectionist who worked at a fast-paced media company. As much as I liked the nature of my job and achieved great career results, I often found myself unhappy as the amount of stress I experienced at work was eating me away slowly. After a friend gave me an awesome testimonial about her acupuncture experience, I decided to give acupuncture a try despite having needle phobia. After my first session, I was able to sleep through the night without busy dreams and woke up the next morning feeling refreshed! Once my mind was more calm, I was able to re-evaluate many situations in my life and most importantly to hear the voices within me that encouraged me to make all the positive changes for a better, healthier and happier life.
Got Pain? In Chinese Medicine, we believe that pain is caused by blockages and malnourishment in the body. Blockages occur when Qi (energy) and blood flow are hindered due to various reasons, such as sports injuries, habitual patterns of postural misuse in sitting, standing, and in motion. When the body is under nourished, there is insufficient Qi and blood to maintain the health of organs, muscles, tissues, ligaments and bones; therefore, we experience pain that is not severe but enduring. Acupuncture not only helps reduce pain but also strengthens the body’s defensive system and repairs any ‘wear and tear’ occurred. Most importantly, acupuncture offers a medicine-free way to regulate our autonomic nervous system; therefore, it resolves pain, reliefs stress/anxiety symptoms, heals digestive disorders, and promotes a sense of well-being, etc.
My focus of practice is acupuncture for a variety of health concerns such as anxiety/stress/depression, pain (neck, shoulder, back and limbs), sports injuries, women's health, fertility, and pregnancy (cervical ripening & labor induction). I also provide Fire Cupping therapy and Gua Sha (skin scraping) detoxification to complement a treatment if needed. I work on Monday and Thursdays.
