Acupuncture by Olivia


Acupuncture is the insertion of single-use sterile needles at specific therapeutic points on the body which are selected for each individual diagnosis according to Traditional Chinese Medicine theory.

What Acupuncture does:

  • Reduces inflammation

  • Increases blood circulation

  • Diminishes pain by increasing endorphins and other opioid-like hormones/receptors

  • Shifts the way the brain processes pain by regulating the Autonomic Nervous System

  • Reduces Cortisol levels which can help regulate metabolism & mood swings, decrease pain & lower blood pressure


“Moxa” for short, is another form of heat therapy using the herb Mugwort or Ai Ye in pinyin! Moxa can provide relief for arthritis, menstrual issues, increases immunity and helps to reduce various forms of body pain when appropriately applied.
