A relaxing, gentle and highly effective treatment using a few small needles and shallow insertions. This acupuncture style relieves pain and stress and restores balance to mind and body. Treatment may also include components of Chinese acupuncture, Balance Method, scalp acupuncture (YNSA), and auricular acupuncture.
This Japanese treatment style works with all patients, while making acupuncture easier for children, the elderly, and anyone with a fear of needles. Using a special blunt needle or a teishin, the acupuncturist stimulates acupuncture points without puncturing the skin. It is a very powerful and effective treatment.

Acupuncture increases fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs as well as balancing the endocrine system. Acupuncture can provide increased blood flow to the ovaries and uterus thus creating a better chance for an egg to be nourished and carried to term.

Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese Herbal Medicine is a component of Oriental Medicine. The use of herbs is based on the practitioner’s understanding of the individual herbs, how they work together and how they affect body chemistry. As with acupuncture, an herbal formula is created for each individual, based on one’s specific health issues and needs. The herbs are taken into the body and accepted similarly to food, with little to no risk of side effects.
