woman getting acupunctureWelcome to Century Acupuncture! If a natural approach to health is important to you, you’re in the right place.

At Century Acupuncture we love what we do and look forward to helping you reach your health goals. We are also passionate about providing natural and sustainable approaches such as acupuncture, bodywork, manual therapies, nutritional recommendations and Western and Chinese herbs.

Chinese medicine is a safe and effective system of prevention, diagnosis and treatment that has been practiced around the world for thousands of years. It has been recognized and researched by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Chinese medicine can also be integrated with Western health modalities to improve treatment outcomes, so we welcome collaboration and communication with other health providers.

Acupuncture excels at pain relief but can be used to treat many types of conditions. After 20 years as a massage therapist Gina Michael L.Ac., LMT has developed a unique style of healing that employs orthopedic sensibilities and Chinese medicine, lending itself well to pain relief and injury, but also frequently treats: digestive disorders, menopause and Womens’ Health, insomnia, anxiety, colds and flu and respiratory issues.

We encourage you to see how natural health can help you.

Services

Try Something New –
That’s Thousands of Years Old

AcupunctureAncient Medicine

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles at specific points which have defined therapeutic actions. Acupuncture treatments focus on returning patients to health by restoring the flow of Qi, removing blockages, balancing Yin and Yang and restoring the harmonious balance within the body.

Assessment of current condition, health history, lifestyle, pulse and tongue diagnosis. Treatments may include acupuncture, cupping, moxa, tuina, guasha, dietary and herbal recommendations.

chinese herbsNatural Remedies

Dependent on plants for oxygen, food, clothing, shelter, spiritual insight and medicine; humans have relied on plant allies for hundreds of thousands of years. Evidence from the middle Paleolithic era shows that ancient humans held the knowledge of a basic pharmacopeia and some of those same herbs are still in use today.

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine and Western Herbology are utilized to address symptoms and treat the root of the problem. Capsules, tinctures, teas and external applications are frequently recommended to restore the body to wellness.

Tuina healingAddress Your Disharmony

Chinese medical massage. Sessions take place on the massage table, wearing loose comfortable clothing.

Generally, no creams or oils are used. A wide variety of hand techniques are used, including hallmark rolling techniques to stimulate points and meridians of the body.

Sessions can be used as regulatory treatments or to treat more specific ailments. Frequently used in conjunction with acupuncture.

Cupping Therapy

By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping may be used to drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions, lift connective tissue and bring blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin.

Some of the therapeutic effects of cupping include: improved lymph drainage, loosening of adhesions and scar tissue, release of deep tissues, removal of stagnation, relief of inflammation, stimulation of blood flow and sedation of the nervous system.

Warming Relief

External heat therapy. Moxibustion or “moxa” is frequently used with acupuncture and massage techniques.

Mugwort (Artemisilae Argyi) is dried, the floss is then rolled in to cones and sticks and burned above the skin to warm an area or an acupuncture point.

Commonly used to relieve pain but can be helpful with gynecological issues, digestion weakness and obstetrics.
