For over 2,000 years, Acupuncture has been used as a method to encourage the body's ability to heal itself. During an Acupuncture treatment at our office you will experience the use of sterile, single-use, hair thin needles inserted in specific point locations with the intention of improving circulation, restoring balance, alleviating pain, reducing inflammation, and promoting relaxation. Chelsie Black, L.Ac. uses different styles depending on your needs. Traditional Chinese Style of Acupuncture uses points to elicit a sensation of "de qi" known as the excitation of vital energy within our body. This sensation often feels like energy within the body is moving, dispersing, or expanding. Japanese Style is used on many of her patient's as a very light and what most believe is a painless style of Acupuncture. Even though people often cannot feel the points being inserted, it has shown to be very effective. For people with specific orthopedic issues, Orthopedic Style is used to target specific motor points to reset and activate the muscles. Tui Na Massage is often incorporated into many of our Acupuncture treatments at the end of the session which uses pressing, rolling, and kneading along one of the body's acupuncture meridians to end the session with a balancing effect. Electroacupuncture if often incorporated in Orthopedic treatments to further stimulate the muscles.
There are 20 major meridian pathways with hundreds of Acupuncture points situated along them which all have their own actions and indications for healing. Symptom relief is often immediate, but several treatments may be needed depending on lifestyle and if the condition is acute or chronic. As a patient's symptoms improve, visits are spaced further apart until their desired results are achieved. Chronic or severe medical conditions will require more frequent treatments and may take longer to resolve. Many patients choose to maintain their wellness with monthly treatments.
Facial acupuncture stimulates collagen production to improve the skin's overall appearance and slow the aging process. An increase in collagen can help the skin look tighter, lifted and brighter.
Facial rejuvenation stimulates the facial muscles to trigger lifting and toning of the deeper wrinkles. It is combined with other acupuncture points to work on the underlying cause of the facial changes. For best results, sessions are nice a week for six weeks for lasting results.

Cupping therapy uses small glass cups with a vacuum suction over areas of the body with the intention of alleviating tension, decreasing inflammation, improving blood flow, activating the lymphatic system, and releasing pathogens that make you feel ill. The vacuum is created by using fire to release the oxygen within the cup. The fire is then quickly removed and the cup is placed on the skin. Cupping is similar to a deep tissue massage, but instead of pushing down on areas of the body to release tension, the cupping brings the toxins up to the surface so that they can be released. Marks typically disappear in 3 to 7 days, but can take weeks if much stagnation is within the body. Most patient's find cupping to be very relaxing and beneficial for their symptoms.
Microneedling Collagen Induction
Microneedling Collagen Induction Therapy uses acupuncture needles to stimulate collagen by opening up the dermal layer of the skin. Hyaluronic Acid is applied to further nourish the skin and deeply penetrate into the skin surface. Micro-Needling works more on the surface for fine lines, acne scarring, and age spots. Micro-Needling leads to reorganization of old collagen fibers and laying down of new collagen, elastin, and capillaries leading to the effect of skin tightening. This leads to an overall youthful appearance of the skin by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and pore size. It also adds more suppleness and elasticity to the skin. Singh, A. and Savita, Y.
