Acupuncture

Acupuncture utilizes sterilized hair thin disposable needles inserted in specific points on the body to help restore balance.

 

Acupuncture sessions start out with 30 min. initial intake to get a history and discuss treatment plan and goals. Once a treatment plan is established then needles will be inserted and you will rest  for about 30 min. It is recommended to wear loose fitted clothing so points are made accessible. Most commonly used points are located between elbows and hands as well as between knees and toes.

 

Alexis will design an effective treatment plan to help remedy and restore your state of health and wellness.

In addition, manual therapies including Tui Na, acupressure, and cupping will be added to create your own personal treatment plan to aid in enhancing your overall health.

  • your seasonal allergies have surfaced, or
  • structurally your body just needs to release some tension, or
  • you are trying to improve your overall health by boosting your immune system,

Alexis's acupuncture session will help to enhance your own body's natural capabilities to heal and restore  balance.
