The beauty of East Asian medicine is that there are an array of different tools to draw from. Many people benefit from receiving acupuncture in conjunction with guasha or cupping and heat therapy during a single visit. In our office you will receive careful, individualized attention and a gentle, effective treatment plan that is personally tailored for your body and your life. We work in cooperation with your medical doctors and value the integration of your healthcare. You do not have to choose between "conventional" and "alternative" medicine, you can have the best of both worlds by taking advantage of our integrative expertise.
