Acupuncture is a safe, painless, and effective form of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Disposable, ultra-thin needles are applied to highly specific points on the body to stimulate the nervous system to release important chemicals in the brain. The improved energy balance provokes the body’s natural healing abilities to relieve many physical ailments and to promote physical and emotional well being.

Relaxation techniques work to suppress the stress response by activating the relaxation response. Engaging the relaxation response decreases stress, promotes memory improvements, increases concentration, decreases anxiety, and improves self-concept. The benefit of this technique is its portability. It can be used anywhere and anytime.

Tai Chi is an ancient martial art practiced by millions worldwide. Tai Chi uses breathing and a series of slow, controlled movements involving the entire body to achieve successful treatment. Benefits include stress reduction, improved balance, coordination, strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular efficiency.
