Products & Services
Cupping massage therapy is used on problemed areas of the skin, such as the back and outer thighs. The negative pressure created by heated cups together with herbal cream work to break down the fat deposits that give that cottage cheese like appearance as well as drain toxins and excess fluid in the area. This effective natural form of treatment feels much like a deep massage, and results can often be seen in as little as 2 procedures.
Gua sha is a healing therapy that includes the cutaneous stimulation of the skin in strokes using a round-edged instrument. The goal of gua sha is to remove blood stagnation, which is considered pathogenic and a cause of ache. This results in increased circulation and metabolic processes, and often, the patient experiences immediate improvement of pain, stiffness, or respiratory issues.
Tui Na is a form of massage based on Traditional Chinese Medicine theory. It is generally stronger than a massage you might experience at a spa. Various massage methods and passive movements are employed and, like with acupuncture, it is aimed at alleviating pain by correcting imbalances and removing obstructions in the energy pathways. Often, special oils and balms containing pain-relieving herbs are employed along with the massage therapy.
I went to see Angie after seeking out many different forms of therapy for my back pain and anxiety. Angie took the time to listen to my concerns and helped bring great relief for my issues. Although acupuncture is no overnight cure, after consistent treatments, I continue to feel better and better. Overall, acupuncture has helped me more than any other therapy
I first saw Angie when I sprained my ankle. The sprain was severe and the swelling prevented me from walking. After the first session of acupuncture, the swelling decreased significantly. I was able to walk. I returned for three more acupuncture treatments and I was back to playing volleyball two weeks after the sprain. About a few months later, I banged my knee with an opponent while playing volleyball. The knee was swollen and I could barely walk. Once again, I saw Angie for an acupuncture session and the swelling nearly abated with one treatment! Ever since, I have been regularly getting acupuncture treatments for aches and pains resulting from playing volleyball and working out. In addition, I have been receiving acupuncture treatments for relaxation and stress relief. Thanks to Angie, I have grown to regard acupuncture as an effective healing modality. I have also been impressed with broad application of acupuncture, as it can be used to treat anything from an ankle injury to stress.
Angie has been helping me with my chronic neck and shoulder pain for almost 6 months now and have seen great results due to her service! I have had this chronic pain for over 10 years, and having her as my acupuncturist, she has helped alleviate most of my symptoms! I can actually sleep at night in a normal sleeping position- whether that is on my back or just on my side. She is extremely passionate in what she does and I would truly recommend her to anyone who is curious and interested in trying some alternative measures! Angie is the answer!
