About Our Services
Acupuncture is a complete system of Medicine first developed in China several thousand years ago. While Western medicine's advances have come from understanding the individual parts of the body in great detail, Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on ensuring the free flowing function of the different body systems.
In this way, Acupuncture is most successful with any conditions that result from constriction:
pain of all kinds
stress and emotional disturbances
the hormonal cycles of both men and women
Stagnation in any system, if left untreated, can lead to more serious medical issues as the body puts excessive strain on other systems to compensate.
Luckily, you and your body want to flow as freely as possible, so there are many different signs that an experienced practitioner can read and treat.
Anna uses the Japanese system of abdominal diagnosis to determine any underlying patterns of stagnation. While she primarily uses acupuncture needles and suggests lifestyle changes, cupping, gua sha, and small amounts of bloodletting have also proved enormously effective.
