Balancing Body- Mind and Soul with Acupuncture, Herbs, and Massage Therapy.


Sometimes you get injured or loose the range of motion in your joints; you get stiff and painful from sitting or standing behind a computer; you have a lot of stress in your lives, balancing kids, and working long hours. We're all learning how to find balance.

 I love finding solutions to a more balanced, healthy life for my clients. I will help you stretch, and massage the deeper layers of tight muscle, and acupressure trigger points, so you move more freely. I work on injuries from overuse, on the job, and sports and auto accidents, and treat all Musculo- Skeletal Dis- Ease with Acupuncture, Cupping, Chinese Herbal Medicine, Deep Tissue-, Sports Orthopedic Acupressure, Chinese Medical Massage, Deep Feet Shiatsu, and Table Shiatsu.

 With my work I help you heal minor emotional disturbances such as stress, insomnia, anxiety and anger; treating you with an Acupuncture- Massage Therapy treatment, Chinese herbs, and Swedish Therapeutic Massage.  I focus on women's heath through the different life stages with Acupuncture and herbs, and provide prenatal and hot stone massages.
I would love to evaluate, diagnose , and treat you with Acupuncture, Chinese Herbal Medicine, nutrition, and Massage Therapy, and become your Primary Acupuncture Family Medicine Practitioner.  I hope to see you soon, in the treatment room.  Masja van der Hoog, Lac.
