Acupuncture is used to correct imbalances in the flow of energy, also known as our chi or qi. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed that our chi flows through pathways in our bodies called meridians, which correlate to both nerve stimulation and various ailments. This is done by inserting fine, sterile needles into your skin, effectively stimulating specific anatomic sites, more commonly known as acupoints.
Acupuncture promotes your body’s natural self-healing process to relieve pain, and improve sleep, digestion, and emotional well-being.
What to Expect
Our acupuncturist will make sure you are relaxed and comfortable before beginning the procedure. He will then insert fine needles into your skin in order to stimulate specific pressure points or acupoints. The number of needles you get, the placement of these needles, and how deeply they are inserted into your skin varies depending on your specific needs. Your initial appointment will be 90 minutes. Each subsequent appointment will be scheduled as necessary and will be one hour long.

LDA/LDI therapy enables your body to build a tolerance to many common allergies, such as food, pollen, mold, animals, dust, chemicals, etc., and, in turn, leads to increased immune function.

Cranial Sacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep within your body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance. Using a soft touch, generally no greater than five grams, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround your central nervous system. CST is very commonly used on infants as well to address a variety of conditions they may have been born with.
CST can benefit patients suffering from a variety of conditions, including ADHD and autism spectrum disorder, concussions and traumatic brain injuries, infant colic, latching challenges, torticollis, headaches, seizure disorders, generalized pain disorders, and more.
What to Expect
For infants, a cranial sacral therapist will have the mother lay down with the baby. The mother may also be asked to breast feed the infant during the therapy in order to keep the baby calm and relaxed throughout the procedure. During each session, your therapist will assess areas of fascial and muscular restriction. They will then proceed with the therapy starting at either your head or feet, applying very light pressure where they feel will be most beneficial to you based on your individual needs. Sessions are typically one hour long. Followups will be scheduled, usually once or twice a week, according to your therapist’s recommendations.Schedule an Appointment
The PEMF technology uses low frequency energy fields that are being pulsed as you utilize the mat.
What is PEMF Therapy?
PEMF stands for Pulsed Electromagnetic Field. There are several methods by which PEMF therapy can be administered, in our office, we use a full-body therapeutic mat. These mats emit electromagnetic waves at very low frequencies to recharge unhealthy cells and restore the body’s natural self-healing process. The frequencies are similar to that of the electromagnetic waves found in nature. They are not nearly as high as those produced by microwaves, X-ray machines, etc. which can be harmful to the body.
How does PEMF Therapy work?
The cells in your body carry positive and negative charges. These charges allow for the exchange of potassium, sodium, and calcium ions, which your body needs to function properly. Over time, or with injury, your cells can get damaged and no longer carry these magnetic charges. This does not allow for the necessary exchange of ions in the body. PEMF mats emit electromagnetic waves to target your damaged cells and restore healthy charges to them. Different levels of frequencies target different tissues and cells in your body. Our bodies need to be exposed to low-frequency waves in order for our cells to keep their positive and negative charges. This can help decrease inflammation, increase circulation, reduce the effects of stress, accelerate bone healing, and more.
“The trillions of cells of your body maintain stored energy, or voltage, that represents the ability to execute the functions that keep you alive. When cells lose voltage due to environmental stressors, lack of exercise, injury, or inadequate nutrition it creates an environment for the onset of dysfunction that can lead to illness and chronic pain. Drafting on the mid-20th century laboratory work of Harold Saxton Burr at Yale that identified the link between measurable imbalances in the electrical field of an organ and the onset of illness, Dr. Jerry Tennant states in Healing is Voltage that cells, like batteries, are designed to run at -20 to -25 mV. When voltage levels drop cells struggle to function creating an environment for chronic pain and disease. The rapidly changing field of a pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) has been observed to induce an electric current in the tissue, producing stimulation of charged particles in support of optimizing the voltage necessary to maintain energy for normal cellular function.”
What can PEMF/PULSE Therapy be used for?
The brain needs more than just rest. It needs active nutrients and reduction of inflammation as well as supportive blood flow and oxygen to increase the healing time and the probability of a full recovery.
This is the exact approach and environment our family was searching for to be our care partners. On our first visit we felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door. The entire staff was lovely. Amy was just outstanding with our son, he loved her, and was very comfortable. They are not judgemental here and respect individual choices and decisions. It was more like talking with your friend and figuring things out together, and making a health plan best for you instead of being just another number and being "shamed, bullied, or told what to do just because the doc said so". We have definitely found our home❣ Thank you Turnpaugh team! Mary
