Find Balance and Harmony in Your Life with Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncturists are health care professional, they stimulate the balance and flow of Qi energy that in Traditional Chinese/Korean Medicine is considered essential to health. When the body is healthy, Qi (pronounced chee), flows smoothly through the meridians that make up a conceptual network of pathways throughout the entire body. When the balance or flow of Qi is deficient or obstructed it may be diseased or susceptible to illness. Acupuncture treats both the symptoms and the root causes of the patient’s illness.


침구사/한의사는 의료전문가로서 동양의학을 기반으로 우리 몸을 운행하는 기와 혈의 움직임을 조율하는 치료를 합니다. 건강한 사람은 기와 혈의 막힘없이 운행과 소통을 하여 몸의 균형을 잡지만 기혈이 약하거나 막히게 되면 그곳을 통하여 몸의 질병이 들어오고 통증을 유발하며 외과적뿐만 아니라 내과적으로도 문제를 발생시킵니다. 이를 동양의학적 진단 즉 망진, 설진, 맥진, 타진을 통해 얻은 진단으로 침, 뜸, 부항, 그리고 괄사(지압)을 통하여 정체된 곳을 풀어주고 기혈이 약한 부분을 보충하여 몸의 균형과 건강을 바로 잡아주는 치료를 합니다. 

Needle therapy

By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance. In contrast, many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue.


Cupping is an ancient healing therapy that some people use to ease pain. A provider places cups on your back, stomach, arms, legs or other parts of your body. Inside the cup, a vacuum or suction force pulls skin upward. Suction from cupping draws fluid into the treated area. This suction force expands and breaks open tiny blood vessels (capillaries) under the skin. Your body treats the cupping area like an injury. It sends more blood to the area to stimulate the natural healing process.

Ear acupuncture

Ear acupuncture involves placing acupuncture needles into specific points around the ear. These points are believed to correspond with specific organs, emotions or sensory feelings.


Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to promote healing with acupuncture. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.
Gua Sha - healU+ Wellness & Pilates

Gua sha

Gua sha is a natural, alternative therapy that involves scraping your skin with a massage tool to improve your circulation. This ancient healing technique may offer a unique approach to better health, addressing issues like chronic pain. In Gua sha, a technician scrapes your skin with short or long strokes to stimulate microcirculation of the soft tissue, which increases blood flow. Rubbing the skin’s surface is thought to help break up this energy, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

Electro Acupuncture


Electro-acupuncture is an addition to acupuncture therapy whereby an electrical current is run from an electro machine through connecting cables and attached to the heads of acupuncture needles to assist in stimulating the muscle/fascia via differing electrotherapeutic methods.

What is herbal medicine?

Herbal medicine, also called botanical medicine, refers to using a plant’s seeds, berries, roots, leaves, bark, or flowers for medicinal purposes. Herbalism is becoming more mainstream as improvements in analysis and quality control, along with advances in clinical research, show the value of herbal medicine in treating and preventing disease.
