ACUPUNCTURE & CUPPING
Traditional Chinese Medicine is an eastern system of medicine which works to create balance and flow of our energy source (aka Qi) in the body. This is also where the well-known concept of Yin vs Yang originated. By creating a healthy equilibrium of energy throughout the body we can counteract the damaging effects of imbalance and disease.
Acupuncture involves activating certain points on the body (called meridians) to help optimize energy flow for issues including muscle pain, allergies, and reproductive problems.
Cupping involves creating a suction over targeted areas of the skin to move stagnant energy and dispel toxins. It is most often used for pain management and to enhance circulation.
Facial acupuncture is a natural, minimally invasive and painless treatment for those with deep wrinkles, fine lines, bags under the eyes, sagging, puffiness, drooping eyelids, double chin, large pores, dry skin or acne. Hair-thin needles are gently inserted into specific points on the face to stimulate collagen production, increase skin elasticity and improve blood circulation.
Treatments are 1 - 1.5 hours and include facial acupuncture followed by facial massage hyaluronic filler treatment.

Ensuring intake of a balanced diet, proper food-timing, removing potential food sensitivities and maintaining hydration will all help to decrease the stress load on the body and increase recovery time from illness.

Homeopathy is a safe and non-toxic energetic subset of naturopathic medicine, where very small amounts of plant, mineral or animal substances are diluted into a pellet form to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms. Homeopathy is based on the law of similars - treating like with like - matching a person's disease state with a remedy in order to stimulate the body's own defensive attempt to correct its imbalance.
