Cupping and Gua Sha

One-on-one acupuncture sessions will start with a Q&A session about your chief complaint and an in-depth personal health history. Your practitioner will use this information to form a treatment plan that will address both your chief complaint and a possible root cause for the imbalance.
Single-use needles that are thinner than a human hair are inserted and retained as you relax quietly or even fall asleep.

Medicine works best when treating both externally AND internally. Traditional Chinese formulas prescribed today were created hundreds of years ago and have stood the test of time because of their effectiveness. Taking herbs can be a good way to maintain progress in between appointments. We offer formulas in pill and tincture form. Grassroots Herbs also works out of our clinic-- you can get a custom formula made just for you!

Often used as a complement therapy to an acupuncture treatment, cupping and gua sha are performed on areas of the body experiencing pain, tightness or stagnate energy. These therapies create micro-traumas to the skin and muscle layers which signal to the body a need for oxygen-rich blood flow and repair. It is common for painless red marks, called "sha", to linger for a few days to a week as the body repairs these areas.

In Chinese Medicine, the outside environment AND the body's internal environment are characterized by varying levels of heat, cold, dampness, and dryness. Foods also have temperatures that will either work with or worsen your body's personal "weather gauge", and therefore alleviate or exacerbate your symptoms accordingly. When followed, personalized dietary recommendations can help immensely.

Similar to Reiki, Medical Qi Gong is a form of energy work that focuses on moving stagnant qi in the body's meridian systems in order to alleviate a variety of symptoms. The practitioner may hover their hands over your body or use light touch to facilitate energy movement and is a great alternative if a patient is uncomfortable with needles. Attention is paid to areas of discomfort and  acupoints that are related to your symptoms.

Moxibustion, or 'moxa' for short, is the burning of Chinese Mugwort near the surface of the body for therapeutic effect. Its first use was documented in 581 B.C. and research shows it not only emits thermal heat, but infrared light as well, allowing it to affect deep tissues below the skin's surface. It may even energize metabolism on a cellular level. Moxa can warm the body, disperse excess energy, or even help build energy on or near acupuncture points.

Holistic Microneedling

We now offer Holistic Microneedling as a cosmetic treatment at Hidden Root Acupuncture.

Using a medical grade tool only available to professionals, microneedling causes micro-traumas on the top layer of the skin, nudging the body to induce collagen and elastin production. Monthly treatments may result in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, decrease acne and scarring, and can help with hair loss.

Included with your treatment is a mini-acupuncture session to support the body's vitality and general health.
