Acupuncture is an ancient form of Chinese medicine involving the insertion of solid filiform acupuncture needles into the skin at specific points on the body to achieve a therapeutic effect. Acupuncture is used to encourage natural healing, improve mood and energy, reduce or relieve pain and improve function of affected areas of the body. It is safe and effective and is often successfully used as an alternative to medications or even surgery. Relief is often obtained with acupuncture when traditional medical therapy has failed. Some of the ailments successfully treated with acupuncture are lower back, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, insomnia, depression, anxiety, infertility, weight control, arthritis and sports injuries.
Functional Dry Needling is a modern approach to the use of acupuncture needles in effectively treating myofascial pain. A thin needle is used to target taut, irritable bands of muscle tissue called trigger points (or muscle “knots”). Once the trigger points are released, blood flow is increased to the muscle, tension is relieved, painful inflammatory chemicals are removed and mobility and function are restored. Dry Needling can be used to treat a variety of physical ailments including headaches, neck, low back and shoulder pain, hip and leg pain (sciatica, hamstring strains, calf tightness/spasms) and arm pain (tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, golfer’s elbow).

This amazing treatment can be incorporated into any 60, 75 or 90 min massage for just $15 extra (only certain therapists provide this service so we need to know in advance).

The intent of the massage is to free blockages and stagnation in the energy lines (Sen Sib lines) affecting the underlying life force (Prana) in the body.

There is a hot foot bath included and tiger balm is used on areas of tension.
