Pain Relief

I'd originally had sciatic pains and couldn't find a solution. My family suggested trying acupuncture. Wow. I'd researched a few places online and found Essential to be highly rated. It has been a life changing decision and I continue to go for pain and overall wellness sessions. Leigh has been a blessing. — Mike T.

How It’s Done


East Asian Medicine (EAM) is a comprehensive medical system that has been practiced for over 2,000 years and includes the use of acupuncture and herbal medicine.


Acupuncture needles regulate and activate the body's qi (pronounced chee) or energy to create a healing and balancing response.

Chinese Herbalism

Formulas are based on tried and true classical herbal combinations which are then modified for your specific needs.

Adjunct Therapies

Moxibustion, Cupping, Guasha, and tui na compliment our core treatments and offer a greater range of wellness options.
