North Shore Community Acupuncture
Creating a Healthy Community
Nourish Your Mind, Body & Spirit
Acupuncture is a safe and effective option to promote relaxation, pain relief, brain clarity, emotional balance and increases energy and stamina.
Acupuncture is one of the longest practiced medical systems in the world. It works by affecting the quality of our energy (chi) that flows throughout the body. An imbalance in the flow of chi is how illness begins.
Acupuncture is a process, and healing occurs over a series of treatments building on each other. The benefits of acupuncture are greatly increased by receiving regular, frequent treatments. Generally it is good to come in 1 – 2 times per week until there is a change in symptoms. Each session is between 45 – 60 minutes in length.
Common Conditions We Treat
Community Acupuncture is done in a relaxed space where other people are being treated at the same time.
Each person gets individualized treatment customized to their needs. The atmosphere is quiet and meditative. By treating in a group setting we are able to keep our prices low. Affordable prices enable patients to come regularly enough, to get better and stay better. Private sessions are also available.
Cupping Therapy is used as an alternative pain therapy. Cupping is safe, comfortable and effective for many health disorders.
When the cup is left in place on the skin, blood stasis is formed and localized healing takes place. It activates the lymphatic system, relieves muscles tension, joint pain and digestive disturbances and increases blood circulation. It also benefits the lungs, relieving symptoms of respiratory problems such as coughing and wheezing. Cupping draws up the underlying tissues and opens the meridians, allowing energy to flow through the organs and tissues of the body.
Gua Sha (Gwa Sha) is a Chinese healing technique used to treat aching, tight and tender muscles, colds, flu, sluggishness, migraines and poor circulation. Gua means to scrape or rub. Sha is the reddish skin reaction caused by the rubbing.
Every muscle, bone, nerve, vein, artery and organ in your body is wrapped in a connective tissue sheath called fascia. When fascia is in good health it will glide smoothly, allowing the body to move without pain.
Moxibustion can be used to maintain health as it tonifies and strengthens the body, organs and the immune system. It warms the meridians and expels cold.
It promotes circulation over areas of chronic pain, muscle tension and arthritis. When applied to acupuncture points, that work to strengthen and lift the chi, moxibustion can boost the immune system and help with fatigue, digestive issues, and much more.
