Tight neck? Achey shoulder muscles? If you want fast relief, Gua Sha is the answer! Organic coconut oil is massaged across the neck and shoulders relieving tension and stress while a small round instrument is brushed against the skin to enhance circulation and release knots and tight muscles.
10 minutes. $15.


Our Cupping Therapy treatment helps reduce inflammation, clears toxicity, relaxes tense back and shoulder muscles, balances the digestive system and is widely used for asthma and other respiratory ailments. Each treatment includes light pressing on areas of the back, organic coconut oil application and placement of several glass cups that create a vacuum effect on the back. Book today to experience the deep healing of cupping.
25 minutes. $40.



Tight Jaws and tense facial muscles can lead to discomfort and pain. An Acupuncture Facial is designed to alleviate stress, reduce puffiness, enhance blood circulation and relieve pain in the facial area.  Those with TMJ and Jaw pain will especially benefit from this relaxing treatment. Gentle, extra-thin needles are inserted into different areas of the face and jaw.  This is followed by a soothing facial massage with organic Argan oil and a rose quartz gua sha tool.
50 Minutes. $65.


We designed the Facial Acupuncture Mini to be available during our community-style acupuncture hours as an add-on treatment. It's the same as our Facial Acupuncture Treatment but does not include the facial gemstone massage, uses fewer needles and is not a private acupuncture session. This is a great treatment add-on for TMJ, Bell's Palsy, Sinus Issues and Headaches or Facial Pain.
$15 added to regular treatment cost.
