Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to gently heal the body using its own natural wisdom. Points are chosen based on each individual’s patterns of imbalance to relieve pain, boost the metabolism, regulate hormones, improve moods, benefit sleep, and increase energy. As the body comes back to its natural state of harmony, this health and well-being can be maintained more easily.
We specialize in treating all different types of pain including headaches, migraines, arthritis, carpal tunnel, back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain, joint pain, and fibromyalgia. We also use sports medicine acupuncture for athletes who want to improve performance by increasing strength, stamina, endurance, post-workout recovery and healing from musculoskeletal injuries.
We also specialize in treating emotional issues like stress, irritability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, bipolar disorder, tobacco addiction, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and sensory disorders. Since Dr. Reyna is so passionate about treating emotional issues, she did her doctorate dissertation on the treatment of depression and anxiety with integrative medicine.
Other common symptoms we treat include sleep problems, fatigue, allergies, sinus problems, digestion issues, weight issues, menstrual issues, urination issues, nausea, pregnancy discomfort, or anything else that is making your life less beautiful.
Cosmetic Acupuncture is an anti-aging system to help you look and feel younger and improve overall health. Cosmetic Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years in China to prevent and treat the effects of aging. In addition, we give recommendations for skin care, nutrition, and herbal formulas to achieve and maintain optimal results. Since we are also doing an overall acupuncture treatment at the same time, general health including digestion, sleep, energy, and moods will also improve. Not only will you look and feel younger, but your overall health will improve as well by balancing your body and mind to bring out the natural beauty within you.
These treatments result in a brighter and more radiant complexion, improved skin elasticity, reduction of wrinkles and fine lines, fading of dark spots, reduction of smile lines and frown lines, reduction of crow’s feet and darkness around the eyes, reduction of general puffiness and bags under the eyes, improvement in jowls and neck waddle, lifting of drooping eyelids, and reduction of eczema, acne, and rosacea.

This is not a magic pill, so we will teach you how to balance your life to reduce stress hormones that hinder weight loss and give you recommendations for improving your nutrition and making exercise more fun.

Metabolic Acupuncture repairs the metabolism to increase weight loss, reduces stress to decrease cravings and emotional eating, balances the emotions to improve the motivation to stay on track, and improves the elasticity of the skin for a more toned and fit appearance. Since we are also doing an overall acupuncture treatment at the same time, general health including digestion, sleep, energy, and moods generally improve as well. Not only will you look and feel lighter, but your overall health will improve as well by balancing your body and mind while you achieve your optimal weight.
Acupuncture for children can be done anywhere from birth through adolescence and teenage years. Extra tiny needles that we affectionately call our “baby needles” are used and it is generally painless. Since young bodies are so adaptive, the needles can be removed immediately after insertion and most children don’t even feel them. Young children commonly watch with fascination and have no fear of the needles. The most common response we hear from parents is that their children ask when they can come back for acupuncture because it makes them feel so relaxed. Common issues we treat in children include allergies, frequent colds or ear infections, attention issues, sleep problems, emotional issues, sensory disorders, and acute pain from car accidents.
Ear Acupuncture uses points on the ears that affect the entire body. It is used for stress including after a stressful event or trauma, long-term symptoms from post-traumatic stress disorder, weight loss and cravings, and substance addiction including tobacco, alcohol, and drugs. It helps balance the moods and reduces the physical symptoms of stress. Ear acupuncture can be used as a treatment on its own or as part of a full body acupuncture treatment.
Acupuncture can be very effective for addiction and specifically to assist in quitting smoking. It works by calming the mind to give more emotional resilience for the quitting process, reducing cravings, and reducing or eliminating symptoms such as sleep issues, low energy, irritability, restlessness, anxiety, and other symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. We use a combination of full body acupuncture treatments and ear acupuncture treatments that are designed specifically for addiction and cravings.
