Acupuncture is one of the oldest traditional Chinese medicines, in use for thousands of years

Our board certified acupuncturists determine each individual patient’s needs and then creates a customized plan, while being mindful of where Western medicine would be useful as well

Getting to the root of your symptoms

Each of the acupuncture points act as a gate—sending energetic information electromagnetically via the fascia deep into the body. Explore some of the ways acupuncture works below:


Offering a small electrical prompt to the body to restore homeostasis & balance.


Releasing areas of blocked Qi which stimulates organ function & promotes health.


Promoting circulation in the body improves function where needed.


Acting as a natural analgesic, acupuncture interrupts pain signaling.


Influencing the body’s biochemical responses via the nervous system.


Reducing proinflammatory markers, or proteins, in the body

Chinese medicine is energy medicine

The term energy medicine refers to the wide range of healing modalities used to diagnose and treat illness by manipulating the energy—the vital life force referred to as “qi” in traditional Chinese medicine—that pulses through the cells of our bodies. As Jill Blakeway explains in her book Energy Medicine, acupuncture is one of the oldest forms of energy healing and at Yinova we practice it in a thoroughly modern way.

The Acupuncture Ecosystem


Acupuncture points are chosen according to your specific diagnosis. Once the needles are in, most of our patients feel a sense of deep relaxation & even sleepiness!


Cupping feels like massage (only, in reverse!). By gently pulling the muscles and fascia upwards, it draws toxins to the surface of the skin where the immune system is better able to eliminate them.


Ai Ye is an herb used to warm and stimulate acupuncture points through a process called moxibustion. It improves circulation to relieve pain, boosts energy, and is used to warm the uterus to treat some types of infertility. We even use it to encourage breech babies to turn.

Gua Sha

Gua Sha improves local circulation and breaks up scar tissue or adhesions in the muscles and connective tissue. It is also a great adjunctive technique for treating respiratory conditions.
