Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.

About Essence of China Acupuncture and Herb Clinic
The six pulses of your wrist, the quality of your tongue—Lei Shaw scrutinizes such aspects of the body to pinpoint signs of imbalance. One way of rectifying those imbalances is through acupuncture, a technique the licensed acupuncturist and herbalist honed while serving as resident doctor at the Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine hospital in China. She performs sessions by inserting thin needles at specific points of the body to help restore the flow of energy and increase empathy toward pincushions. To alleviate muscle tightness and sprains, Lei turns to cupping, in which heated glass cups placed on patients’ skin create a vacuum that boosts circulation. She further stimulates the body’s natural healing processes with personalized Chinese herbal formulas administered through pills or capsules.
