Informed by traditional Chinese medical practices, Chinese Acupuncture & Herb Center’s skilled acupuncturist bridges broken synapses between the mind and body with holistic treatments that prove a valuable counterpoint to Western medicine. Each treatment begins with an assessment that takes into account prior health conditions before embarking on a healing journey designed to improve the body's holistic well-being. Along the way, sterile single-use acupuncture needles help to boost the immune system and free up inner energy; cupping stimulates blood flow by creating a warming, vacuum-like sensation across the skin. To further encourage holistic healing, many of the center’s treatments incorporate natural herbs and remedies, such as herbal massage oils which help deepen the effects of a relaxing massage.
