FERTILITY/PRENATAL

Are you thinking about growing your family?

Acupuncture improves fertility by reducing stress and the disruptive hormonal stress responses in both women and men.  High stress elevates cortisol and other chemicals which can disrupt normal production of all reproductive hormones, sleep cycles, sperm production, ovulation function, and other reproductive syndromes such a PCOS, endometriosis, and thyroid dysfunction.  Acupuncture is excellent in conjunction with IVF therapy.  
Recommended sessions are weekly for 6 to 12 weeks and perhaps longer depending on the severity of symptoms.

DIGESTION

Acupuncture restores the circulation of Qi, blood and lymph to the stomach and intestinal area through the use of specific acupoints.  Treatments stimulate the release of the body’s anti-inflammatory chemicals and hormones to reduce inflammatory conditions such as: stomach ulcer, reflux, nausea, colitis, IBS, and other pathologies associated with chronic inflammation.

FACIAL ACUPUNTURE

Many meridians go to the face and head.  Qi (energy, blood, lymph and other fluids) flow along these meridians.  Jill uses an AcuLift Derma roller and micro needls as well as regular body points, to stimulate this flow of Qi along the meridians.

Some of the benefits are:
Tones facial muscles which lift saggy skin
Reduces fine lines and puffiness
Reduces redness, rashes, scars, stretch marks.
Increases circulation to the skin and body in general.

The Acupuncture stimulation actually builds collagen which fill in the fine lines.

The overall benefits:
Complete Acupuncture treatment
Enhances natural glow of face
Addresses the cause of acne, stress lines, puffiness etc. with the expert diagnosis of underlying causes.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a treatment that is designed to change and improves health of fascia. Myofascial Release breaks down scar tissue, relaxes muscles and fascia and improves posture. It can help with decreasing muscle spasms and muscle tightness and increases range of motion. Myofascial Release is most commonly used for conditions such as: low back pain, headaches, sports injuries, arthritic conditions, etc. Myofascial release is done at the beginning of the treatment and can be followed with general swedish massage techniques

Trigger Point Therapy

 A trigger point is a hyperirritable spot, within a muscle which will cause pain in another area of the body, this is commonly known as “referral pain”. Trigger Point Therapy uses direct pressure to specific point on a muscle which in turn will relieve muscle tension and pain.
