Herbal medicine allows for an individualized treatment that is a part of the patient’s daily routine, helping to speed up the healing process of most conditions.  It’s great path for those who are concerned about needles or who have trouble finding time for acupuncture appointments.  It can be used in conjunction with acupuncture or on it’s own. These visits start with the same health history paperwork as an acupuncture visit, then followed by a private intake and consultation. An individualized formula will be compounded for you on-site. The herbs are an additional charge, averaging $35 a week, but each formula is different so the cost may vary.  Follow up appointments track your progress and to make adjustments to your formula as your condition improves. Herbs are usually given for a week or two at a time in between consults, and may stretch into 3+ weeks depending on the condition.  Herbal consults are up the stairs to the left. The waiting room is on the right at the top of the stairs.

The herbs are water-extracted under high heat and pressure, then dispensed in a dehydrated powder form, similar to instant coffee. To take the herbs, you boil hot water, pour about half a cup into a mug, add the dosage of herbs listed on the bottle, stir until dissolved and drink. There will be a video to come! The herbs to taste a bit medicinal, but you get accustomed to it.

Cupping & Gua Sha  (30 min – $40)

Cupping & Gua Sha are both types of manual therapy.  Cupping utilizes glass cups, which are suctioned onto the skin for a few minutes at a time.  Gua Sha uses a round edged tool to scrape along the skin.  These therapies are used to increase circulation and immune function in the muscle, break up adhesions, loosen connective tissue and fascia, clear metabolic wastes and toxins, and relax the muscles.  They are most often used for muscular pain and tightness, but can also be used to treat colds, asthma, digestive disorders, and more. They can be used in private acupuncture treatments but are also book-able on their own.

 

 

Heat Therapy (30 min – $40)

Heat therapy is often used by acupuncturists to promote circulation and relax muscles.

The TDP lamp is one such way to do it, and is usually a favorite of the patients!   This therapeutic device features a plate coated with a mineral formation consisting of 33 essential elements to the human body. When activated by its heating element, the mineral plate emits deep, penetrating waves that are readily absorbed into the tissues. This promotes faster healing by stimulating microcirculation, which delivers higher levels of oxygen and nutrients to injured cells while eliminating toxins and cellular waste.

Moxibustion (Moxa 쑥뜸)

is another warming treatment method utilizing a burning herb, similar to an incense stick, to warm points or areas on the body. Moxibustion can be used alone or in combination with acupuncture.
