Auricular Acupuncture
A form of alternative medicine based on the idea that the ear is a microsystem which reflects the entire body. This type of acupuncture can aid or relieve, smoking cessation, relapse, stress and anxiety.

Electrotherapy

Involving the use of electrical current for a variety of therapeutic purposes, including pain relief, reduction of swelling, muscle relaxation, speeding up of the healing process, and stimulation of acupuncture points. TENS Unit Therapy stimulates nerves close to the spinal cord, that can help eliminate the sensation of pain. Electrodes are placed on the skin over the area of pain in the back. This creates electrical impulses that travel along nerve fibers and create a tingling sensation.

Stone Therapy

Helps control the energy or blood flow and proper realignment of the body. Our massage therapist can use either hot or cold stones in therapeutic sessions. Hot stones are typically used for treatments of tight muscles and stress, whereas cold stones help with better blood circulation. Better blood circulation means that your body will flush out all the bad chemicals from your body. Stone therapy is usually not applied alone, but together with other forms of therapy. Acupuncture, as well as aromatherapy is often associated with this therapy.
