Acupuncture is one branch of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) that has been used for millennia to treat various illnesses, injuries, and serve as a preventative by promoting overall health and well-being. There are more than 2,000 acupoints on the human body, which are connected to the 20 meridians (pathways) conducting qi/chi (energy) between the various organ systems. Each acupoint has a different effect on the qi/chi that passes through it. The insertion of very fine, sterile, single-use needles into the body at specific acupoints restores and balances the body's qi/chi (energy) and promotes self healing.
Electro-acupuncture is occasionally used in conjunction with other TCM methods for treatment of certain conditions. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are inserted at specific acupoints on the body. The needles are then attached by small clips to a device that generates electrical pulses. Two needles are connected a time allowing the impulses to pass from one acupoint to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously as needed. Electro-acupuncture is especially useful in treating conditions where there is an accumulation of qi, such as in chronic pain conditions.

Hot Stone Massage

Studies have shown that specially designed sports massages can promote flexibility, reduce fatigue, improve endurance, prevent injuries and enhance performance.
Thai Yoga Massage
One of the most invigorating types of massage, Thai massage utilizes your entire body as the therapist applies therapeutic pressure and manipulates you into a series of yoga-like stretches to loosen your joints.
Trigger Point Therapy
Like Deep Tissue Massage, Trigger Point Therapy targets specific "problem areas," utilizing pressure of trigger points (localized areas in which the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive when compressed) to relieve tension and pain in an entire (perhaps not even nearby) area. The technique can relieve pain and promote healing of damaged tissues, and restore motion to joints.
