-Community Acupuncture allows the cost of acupuncture to stay affordable by treating people in a group setting with comfortable, reclining chairs. Treatments are customized to your particular needs while you relax and often sleep. We speak in low voices to protect privacy, you remain fully clothed, and distal acupuncture points are utilized. Once the treatment begins patients have plenty of time to rest, sleep and let the treatment sink in. People often explain being deeply relaxed during and after acupuncture. Most everyone leaves the treatment feeling refreshed. We treat the whole family at Happy Belly Acupuncture and kids are welcome, as long as they can sit quietly for about 15 minutes. Overall, kids require less needles and we also offer needle-free treatments.

-Cupping & Gua-sha is a form of therapy that utilizes glass cups and negative pressure to create very tight suction on the skin, mostly on the back. Chinese cups are used to alleviate muscle tension, decrease back/neck pain and help with chronic coughing and asthma. Cupping works on the deep tissue layer of the body and often leaves the patient feeling very relaxed. Toxins are released and blockages are cleared up. Gua sha utilizes a smaller instrument that targets smaller sections of the back and also helps with everything cupping does.
