Acupuncture involves stimulating specific points on the body. This is most often done by inserting thin needles through the skin, to cause a change in the physical functions of the body. We at Uyayi practice Balance Method Acupuncture. This style of acupuncture utilizes philosophies and strategies based on the Chinese Classical Text, I Ching.
If needles aren't your thing, Chinese Herbs can do more than just stand in for Acupuncture needles. Chinese Herb Formulas and decoctions are very powerful in helping the body finding healing Homeostasis.
Acupressure & Tui Na Massage
Before becoming an acupuncturist Francis practiced Tui Na Massage for 4 years. Currently he applies the Balance Method while doing body work in addition to the Acupuncture treatment. Although not always necessary, when the two modalities are combined, treatment outcomes are much more successful.
