On your first visit with Janelle she will spend time going over a detailed health history and evaluate diet/lifestyle to carefully understand your concerns and customize a wellness plan for your specific needs.  Some of the treatments may include the use of herbal remedies, cupping, gua sha, tuina, E-stim or homeopathic acu-point injections.  She strives to give her patients the tools and knowledge they need to play an active role in their healing and wellness.

Acupuncture

improves the body’s functions and promotes the natural self-healing process by stimulating specific anatomic sites or acu-points.  The skin is penetrated with sterile thin, solid, metallic needles that are manually manipulated.  Pressure, heat or electrical stimulation may also be used to further enhance the effects.

 

Cupping

is a form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction.  The suction of the cups mobilizes blood flow to promote healing.

 

Gua Sha

is a treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. It releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.

 

Tuina

is a combination of massage and acupressure.  It works by applying pressure to acupoints, meridians and groups of muscles or nerves to remove blockages of qi.

 

E-stim

is the use of an electrical current to cause an effect on the tissue being treated. The most commonly used applications for electrical stimulation include: pain, inflammation, muscle spasm; healing skin incisions, healing bone fractures, muscle atrophy, and enhancing delivery of medication through the skin.

 

Homeopathic Acu-point Injections

are injections of natural therapeutic substances, such as homeopathic remedies or vitamins.

 
  • Vitamin B12 Injections

help your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and make new protein. It is also important for normal blood, cells, and nerves.

 

  • Traumeel Injections

are a treatment for painful inflammation. Traumeel is a botanical extract primarily composed of arnica montana root, a plant extract that is commonly found in tablets and creams to relieve pain and inflammation.

  • Zeel Injections

are used in combination with Traumeel for the treatment of inflammatory and degenerative conditions of the muscloskeletal system, such as arthrosis / osteoarthritis and/or rheumatic joint diseases, and for the relief of symptoms including pain, swelling, and joint stiffness.

  • Engystol Injections
