Safe, effective alternative approaches to health


Acupuncture can treat a wide variety of illness and dysfunctions from soft tissue (muscle/ligaments/tendon) injuries to cases of internal medicine such as digestive disorders, hormonal imbalances, reproductive health, stress/anxiety and the common cold.

The insertion of fine, sterile needles at certain points (acupuncture points) across the body causes cascading events, including a response by the peripheral nervous system, regulation of the immune, endocrine and neurological systems and increased blood-flow to certain areas of the body. All of these processes encourage the body’s natural ability to heal and return to a more balanced state.

  • Morning Sickness
  • Supporting Healthy Fetal Development
  • Promoting Better Sleep
  • Boosting Energy Levels
  • Constipation
  • Migraines
  • Reducing Swelling & Pain
  • Encouraging Proper Positioning

Postpartum Acupuncture helps with:

  • Encouraging healthy production of milk
  • Regulating hormones/reducing stress
  • Recovery from cesarean births and scar reduction

Herbal medicine

Herbal medicine is both an art and science that creates personalized formulas for each patient based on their unique presentation of illness/imbalance. This approach allows and invites modifications to a formula when symptoms begin to change which reduces the chance of negative side effects or taking of unnecessary herbs. Herbal medicine comes in many forms, including loose herbs, granules, pills or tinctures. Herbal medicine is extremely beneficial and safe for both chronic and acute conditions.


Cupping and Guasha are modalities used to help restore circulation/blood-flow and reduce pain and stagnation in areas with injury/dysfunction.

They use non-invasive tools to promote circulation and lymphatic drainage, mobilize soft tissue and break up ‘trigger points.’ Both of these modalities are extremely effective and non-invasive approaches to assist in treating sports/orthopedic injuries as well as other conditions.

I stick to pretty much traditional medicine, and I have never been to acupuncture before. However, I have had an issue... with my shoulder for over four months, and neither physical therapy nor orthopedics had been able to give me relief, so I was willing to try anything. I am now a complete proponent of acupuncture, and I could not have asked for a better first experience! Hannah listened to me and was able to figure out the root of the problem very quickly. Within one session, my pain was gone, and I was on my way to recovery. I went back for my second session today, and she was able to work on some of the other peripheral issues as well. I highly recommend her!read more

Hannah is an amazingly talented practitioner. Her explanation of Chinese Medicine is understandable and she takes the... time to expand upon the philosophy of acupuncture during sessions. Her attention to detail helps you understand why you are receiving the treatment you are for whatever ailment or needs you have. I have made future appointments with full trust in Hannah and her more

Hannah has helped me a great deal over these last few months with a variety of areas of health concerns. She especially... helped me get through the difficulties of pregnancy. Hannah helped out a great deal during my first trimester when it came to my morning sickness. Through specific acupuncture techniques, she was able to lessen the effects I felt from the morning sickness. She even took the time to talk to me about the woes of pregnancy and offer suggestions about how to get through them. I would highly recommend Hannah. She is a great listener, very personable, and truly cares about you as an individual and your well-being. If you want to go see an acupuncturist but you are a little unsure about it, Hannah is the person to go see. She will put your mind at ease and you will truly have a wonderful more
