Treatment Modalities

At Grow Family Acupuncture we strive to provide excellent care to people of all ages and backgrounds. Our treatments are tailored to meet your needs and help you feel better now and in the future. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a root/branch medicine, which means we don’t just treat your symptoms, we look for the root of the problem and work to strengthen you constitutionally. Often when patients come in for one complaint, they find other seemly unrelated symptoms start to improve too. Through acupuncture, cupping, herbs, and nutritional counseling we help bring balance to your body, mind, and spirit. To find our more about our techniques and what we treat, read on.


Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles into special points on the body. These points are connected to each other via channels or meridians through which energy or qi flows. By needling points we are able to bring more energy to an area that needs it, move stuck energy in an area that is blocked, or shift the flow of energy from one direction to another to bring greater balance to the body. Points are chosen based on each individual’s complaints and constitution.


Cupping is a technique traditionally used in cultures around to world to fight sickness, heal injury, and promote health. Cupping involves the application of glass or plastic cups to areas of the body where there is blockage or pain. A vacuum is created within the cup which allows it to grasp and squeeze muscles and connective tissues in a deeply releasing way. Cupping is excellent for relieving pain and tension. It detoxifies the body and brings fresh blood and oxygen into the areas that are stagnated. It is important to know that cupping often leaves circular marks that can last for 7-10 days. These marks are not bruises; they are toxins being pulled to the surface of the body where they can be more readily eliminated. When the same area is cupped in a series of treatments, the marks become lighter each time as there are fewer toxins to clean out. Cupping may be done in conjunction with acupuncture or by itself.


Herbs and supplements are often recommended along with acupuncture care to achieve better, longer-lasting results. Traditional Chinese medicine is famous for its beautifully balanced herbal formulas that can fight sickness, nourish and strengthen the constitution, and provide relief for acute and chronic conditions alike. We often customize formulas for our patients blending Chinese and Western herbs so you can have the best of both worlds. We are very careful about how we source our herbs and we strive to use as many local, organic, wildcrafted herbs as possible. We carry herbs from Five Flavors, Mayway, and Kan Herbs along with only the highest quality supplements.

A nutritious diet is essential to our health and well being. Unfortunately eating well is not always as straight forward as it should be. No one diet fits everyone. We are happy to offer nutritional counseling so you can find the diet that is right for you. This may include identifying and eliminating problem foods, adding in more nutrient dense foods, balancing blood sugar, and improving your digestion.
