Acupuncture is performed through acupuncture points, meridians, and energy flow. The process of acupuncture helps symptoms of specific imbalances in the body caused by some illness. When the needles are inserted into these points with appropriate combinations, it creates positive energy flow to help restore the proper balance.

Dr. Heide tailors her approach and technique to fit your individual needs, while blending acupuncture, guasha, cupping, and Tui Na to go deeper into the root of the problem. She focuses on the correction of disorders, injuries, and defects of the skeletal system in combination with chronic illness.

Effective Healing Through Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Herbal therapy is the art or practice of using herbs and herbal preparations to maintain health, prevent illness, alleviate discomfort, or assist

disease healing.

Guasha involves repeated pressured strokes over lubricated skin with a smooth edge. This treatment helps relieve pain caused by muscle tension and promotes circulation. It also breaks up stagnation in the body. Cupping on the other hand is local suction created on the skin that mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.
