Acupuncture Treatments

Overview
Traditional Chinese Medicine works by reestablishing balance and harmony within the body. This means balance between yin and yang, in the five phases: the viscera, the bowels, the Chi, the blood and the body fluids. Its balanced unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.

Acupuncture seeks to regulate the flow of Chi and blood within the body by either inserting fine, sterile needles at certain acupoints or warming certain acupoints using various methods. Chinese herbal medicines may be prescribed internally or applied externally.

As an important component of Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture treats the full range of acute and chronic, traumatic, infectious and internally generated illness. Acupuncture is an excellent and effective choice for chronic diseases, all kinds of pain symptoms, muscle dysfunction, endocrine disorders, neurotic and mental diseases. Acupuncture also helps improve the immune system and build up body health.

Typically, acupuncture needles are fine and flexible. They are no bigger around that a human hair or a piece of fine thread. Deftly inserted into an acupoint by a skilled acupuncturist, the slender needle produces little or no sensation. It might best be described as resembling a mosquito bite. When the needle makes contact with Chi (the energy), most patients experience a slight tingling sensation. First-time patients are usually amazed at how comfortable they are during treatment.

Acu-Lift Facial Acupuncture Anti-Aging Series
• Facial rejuvenation • Wrinkle reduction • Crow's feet • Frown lines • Complexion care

For over two thousand years, women in the East have known the benefits of acupuncture not only for health, but also for beauty. Women in the East have been using this wonderful technique that is drug-free, almost painless and lasting. The results occur over several weeks and are gradual enough that no one suspects. Acu-Lifts are a series of treatments that are scheduled three times a week for three weeks. Each treatment lasts roughly 60 minutes and includes needles placed in the face, wrists and legs. The needles are extremely fine and the procedure is relatively painless. No chemicals or foreign substances are used apart from the sterile needles. With proper maintenance, the results can last for years. Following the original series, it is recommended that a client return at least once a month for a “tune-up” treatment. A natural alternative to Botox or other chemical injections, this procedure is not for everyone and a short, free consultation is required before beginning the series.

Series of 3 Event Lift $375

Series of 9 Maximum results $1125

Acupuncture Facelift Success Story

I recently had the Acupuncture Facelift at the Spa on Green Street. I received 9 treatments over the course of 3 weeks. After only 3 treatments, I could begin to feel a difference in my skin. It felt more subtle, the color was healthier – more of a natural glow - and my skin was not as dry. After each treatment, I was able to see and feel a difference. At the end of the treatments, the lines around my mouth – my parenthesis – were less deep and noticeable. My forehead was smoother and tighter. Application of moisturizers and makeup seemed to go on smoother, and was less prone to caking in any facial lines. Overall, the experience was a positive one with a positive outcome. I cannot say enough wonderful comments about Dr. Steve Collins and the staff at the spa. THANK YOU!!!

Benefits of Tui Na
A typical session of Tui na Chinese Body work can vary. The session timings may vary depending on the patient's needs and condition. Clients remain clothed, wearing loose clothing. Tui na methods can include soft tissue massage, manipulation, acupressure in conjunction with herbal compresses, ointments, liniments, and heat. The best part of the therapy is that it relaxes as well as energizes the person. The main benefit of tui na massage is that it focuses on the specific problem, whether it is an acute or a chronic pain associated with the joints, muscles or a skeletal system. This technique is very beneficial in reducing the pain of neck, shoulders, hips, back, arms, highs, legs and ankle disorders. It is a very effective therapy for arthritis, pain, sciatica and muscle spasms. Other benefits of this massage therapy include support for other stress related disorders like insomnia, constipation, headaches and other disorders related to digestive, respiratory and reproductive systems.

Medical Qi gong
Medical Qi gong therapy consists of treatment by a practitioner to regulate the client's Qi. After the treatment the client will be given Qi gong prescriptions to assist in their ongoing healing. Tailored specifically to the client medical Qi gong exercises use physical movement, breathing methods and mental intention to correct and restore the function in the body. Medical Qi gong is a complete system of health care that recognizes the root causes of symptoms or disease, and treats the client as a whole. Practiced as an excellent adjunct to Western medicine, Chinese medicine may successfully treat people with conditions which Western medicine finds resistant or ambiguous. .
$80
Gua Sha
Another ancient technique, gua sha involves gentle scraping along the body. The scraping releases toxins or "sha" from beneath the skin. Most people experience a sense of warmth as the heat is released, followed by a sensation of coolness. Gua sha has many applications from muscle soreness to relieving a fever.

Fire Cupping
Cupping is one of the oldest treatments in Chinese medicine. A small piece of paper is lit and placed in a glass cup. The cup is placed on the patient's body. The fire goes out and the patient is not burned. The heat creates a suction that pulls out spasms and toxins from the body. Cupping may leave what looks like a bruise, but is actually painless.

He is caring and loves his job.

Thank you Dr Collins
