Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is one of the oldest systems of medicine still in use, dating back over 3,000 years.

It can be used to treat both acute and chronic ailments, strengthen the immune system, as well as to relieve pain. Acupuncture involves the gentle insertion of extremely fine needles into specific acupoints along the meridians (energetic pathways) of the body. The insertion of the needles signals the body to correct imbalances, and restore health and well-being. Insertion is painless and most patients report a deep sense of relaxation during their treatments.

Laser Acupuncture (Needle-Free)

Laser acupuncture is a noninvasive technique involving the stimulation of traditional acupoints, with low-intensity, non-thermal laser irradiation. Patients may request laser acupuncture instead of traditional needles at no extra cost. Laser acupuncture is non-invasive, aseptic, painless, and safe because no heat is generated during the procedure.

Pediatric Acupuncture

Many parents are turning towards natural approaches for their children’s healthcare. Children tolerate Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) very well. Within the realm of TCM, and depending on the age of the child, traditional acupuncture needles may not be used. The needles used are as thin as a cat’s whisker and are virtually painless, but if children are frightened of needles, needle-less treatments are available through the use of laser, cupping, guasha and Tui Na. Also, children tolerate ear seeds and press beads very well. Acupuncture benefits common childhood complaints including stomach aches/ GI issues, headaches, immune function, anxiety/depression and much more.

Children ages 0-10 (60 minutes) New Patient Consultation and Treatment ~ $72.50
Children ages 0-10 (30 minutes) Return Patient Treatment ~ $37.50
Children 11+ ~ Same pricing as adults.

Cosmetic Acupuncture

What Is Cosmetic Acupuncture?

To put it simply, this is acupuncture for cosmetic purposes. An acupuncturist will use needles to stimulate the skin and underlying muscles of the face. It is said to help improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and give the face a more youthful appearance.
Proponents of cosmetic acupuncture report that there is a range of skin benefits that have been shown to help reduce the depth, severity, and frequency of wrinkles, fade fine lines, remove age spots, lift droopy eyelids, and stimulate the production of collagen—which
indicate a youthful face. Most courses of cosmetic acupuncture therapy involve 10 treatments or more, as well as additional sessions for maintenance of results.

Tiny acupuncture needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points on the face in each acupuncture session. This stimulation helps to increase collagen production and improve blood circulation. As a result, you can see an improvement in skin elasticity,
reduced wrinkles, and a general brightening of the complexion. This is fast becoming a great alternative to Botox or other injectables. It is much less expensive and has none of the potential side effects that come with more invasive procedures. Plus, it’s just plain relaxing!

Is Facial Acupuncture proven to work?

A 1996 research study in the International Journal of Clinical Acupuncture reported that among 300 cases treated with Cosmetic Acupuncture, 98% gad marked effects with one course of treatment.

The effects included:

  • Skin becoming more delicate and fair
  • Improvement of the elasticity of fascial muscles
  • Diminished wrinkles
  • Healthier/brighter complexion
  • Overall rejuvenation not confined to the face

Cost: $120

Cupping/Moxibustion

Cupping therapy utilizes specialized suction cups which create a negative vacuum on the skin. Cupping is generally used to treat painful areas, especially on the back and extremities. It is also used to to relieve colds and the flu, skin disorders, high blood pressure, and headaches. A trained therapist decides which type of cups are appropriate for each client based on their main complaint, history, and constitution. The vacuum from the cups comfortably pulls up on the skin and surrounding muscle tissue, which pulls up old blood, internal pathogens, and traumas. This suctions increases micro perfusion to the area, restoring proper circulation and relieving pain. Sometimes marks from the cupping treatment area left on the skin and usually disappear within 1-10 days. These marks are unlike bruises, as they are not tender.

At SNWC, a cupping session will consist of a brief intake, cupping, and may also include ear seeds or press needles. This generally takes around 30 minutes. Ear seeds and press needles stimulate acupressure points even when the client is not on the table for a session. Cupping sessions can be optimized by adding pressure points to extend the treatment. Ear seeds are carefully placed on pressure points on the ear and can stay on for up to a week. Press needles are tiny needles on adhesive material which are placed on specific acupuncture points on the body. They can stay in place for up to 48 hours.
