Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin, sterile, single-use needles into the skin. When the body is disturbed - either by stress, trauma, a poor night's sleep, or something else - the body gets thrown out of whack. Acupuncture taps into the nervous system and restores harmony between the mind, body, and spirit. Acupuncture stimulates the body's ability to heal itself, which improves physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Different styles of acupuncture (Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Japanese) and different microsystems (auricular, abdominal, and scalp) may be used.
Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture involves using the auricular microsystem to stimulate healing throughout the entire body. This system has become well-known because a specific system (referred to as 'NADA') excels at managing and eliminating addiction. This system is frequently used in drug rehabilitation centers.
Moxibustion is a technique where an herb, mugwort, is used to warm acupuncture points. The warmth penetrates into the body and accelerates healing.
Chinese Herbal Medicine combines plants, minerals, and animal products into a formula that is specific for you and your health concerns. Chinese herbal medicine is often consumed internally, but can also be applied externally as well. Chinese herbal medicine works at a deep internal level to improve your overall health and wellbeing, and helps maintain progress between acupuncture treatments.
Tui Na, or Chinese medical massage, is a specific type of massage that incorporates knowledge of the channels and meridians in which the acupuncture points reside. Techniques such as gliding, kneading, percussing, pulling, rotating, rocking, vibrating, and shaking may be used. Tui na can be used to work on a specific area, or can be used generally all over the body. Therefore, this massage technique is therapeutic for all sorts of musculoskeletal issues, as well as regulating homeostasis in the body.
Acupressure is acupuncture, minus the needles. During acupressure, the same points that are used in acupuncture can be stimulated by applying pressure with tools or with a part of the body (commonly fingers and elbows). Learning acupressure and performing it on yourself is a great way to feel empowered in achieving your health goals.

Gua Sha rubs a tool over a lubricated area of the body to facilitate blood circulation.
