All the structures of your body depend on the smooth flow of blood, fluids, and qi for optimal function.
Cupping and Gua Sha aid in the circulation of blood by bringing blood through the cells to the surface of the body. That is why you will see redness and bruising after a cupping or gua sha treatment. It is not painful and the results are fantastic.
Palpation is an essential diagnostic tool in Chinese Medicine. Doing tui na or massage on a patient helps me to assess their tissues and choose the most beneficial acupuncture points.
Since 1992 I have studied techniques for eliminating pain. I began my career as a massage therapist working on auto accident victims. I learned several manual therapies that address soft tissue damage such as myofascial manipulation and neuromuscular therapy. In 2017, I graduated from the Finger Lakes School of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture and manual therapy form a powerful combination for reducing pain.
With the help of amazing educators in Sports Medicine like Matt Callison and Whitfield Reaves, I am constantly trying to improve my clinical skills. My goal is to help you to be pain free.
There are an endless amount of benefits to acupuncture treatment. Acupuncture can help with poor digestion, headaches, insomnia, depression, and many other concerns. Let me design a treatment plan that will address your specific health needs.
