The benefits of acupuncture
Acupuncture is an ancient healing method based on Chinese medicine that works by harmonizing internal forces within the body through applying needles to ‘meridian points’ in different parts of the body. Acupuncture can help with a range of symptoms, including:
- Chronic pain

Our acupuncture therapist: Stephanie Seliga
Stephanie A. Seliga is a Nationally Certified and Licensed Acupuncturist and Oriental Medicine Practitioner with more than ten years of healthcare experience. She provides clients with acupuncture treatments based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), basing her treatment on traditional Chinese methods of tongue and pulse diagnosis.
As well as Chinese acupuncture, Stephanie is also trained in Su Ji Kim, which is Korean Hand acupuncture, as well as electro-acupuncture, which uses a current that runs to certain points, and Dolphin treatments, which uses an electric hand-held machine that doesn’t require any needles at all. The Dolphin treatment is a great place to start if you are interested in acupuncture but maybe not quite ready to jump into getting needled. Get in touch to find out more.
Stephanie also offers a range of other treatments based on TCM including:
- Gua Sha, an oriental method of skin scraping which helps move blood and lymph to promote healing and reduce pain.
- Fire Cupping, another way to bring blood and lymph to the surface where the body can better process deeply seated toxins and move them along. Many people may have seen Fire Cupping when watching the Olympics, since many Olympians use this technique to deal with muscle soreness.
- Chinse Cupping, which creates a vacuum on the surface of the skin that eases pain and promotes the healing of scar and muscle tissue.
Stephanie is also a distributor for the Standard Process Herbal and Vitamin line. This vitamin line is specially set up to work well with TCM theory, treatment and herbal formulas. She also works with Crane Herbs, who have a nice program that ships directly to the client’s home. Crane Herbs are all TCM formulas carefully formulated for very specific conditions, and it is necessary to work with a trained herbalist to experience the benefits.
