Gentle medicine. Big change.

Acupuncture is gentle medicine, but we've seen it cause big change. Instead of introducing harmful chemicals into the body that mask some symptoms and create others, acupuncture awakens the body's own natural healing mechanisms - systems that have been stressed and suppressed by overwork, worry, and a variety of modern habits and conditions. 

 

Once the body begins to wake up, a deep transformation can occur. A vitality rises up that's more powerful than some diseases. And here's the really exciting part... that vitality can be infectious! We've seen it heal whole families, so why couldn't it heal a whole community or even a whole planet? 

 

We think it's worth a try.

Services

A blend of evidence-based therapies

Using our years of experience treating a diverse group of individuals and conditions, we blend a variety of longstanding, evidence-based therapies - including acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping, herbal medicine, qigong, and more - to create an effective recipe for healing each unique person.

Acupuncture & Moxibustion

Fine needles (often as thin as a human hair) are inserted gently into the body at precise locations shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health conditions. These locations may also be stimulated by an herbal warming therapy called moxibustion. The WHO recognizes acupuncture for over 40 common ailments

Cupping is performed by creating suction on the body with rounded glass cups to relieve tension and pain and stimulate acupuncture points. Other complimentary hands-on techniques include traditional tuina massage, guasha scraping, and acupressure. 

Cupping & Manual Therapies

Herbal Medicine & Food Therapy

We use over 300 herbs with a wide range of medicinal properties including analgesic, anti-inflammatory, immune enhancing, antiviral, glucose regulating, cardio-protective, and many more. Herbs and food are much gentler on the human body than most drugs, but they are effective medicines with few (if any) side effects.

The Way

Perhaps the greatest tool in our medicine chest is the tome of insights into Nature’s laws and rhythms that acupuncture's medicine holds at its center. This wisdom acts as a guide in developing healthful, natural, and reparative life practices that not only heal disease and prevent illness but also enhance our innate ability to thrive. At Turtle Tree, we believe this is the real medicine, and we hope to share it with you.

Lifting Houses: Our Tribe

Making a healthy change can be a disagreeable act. It requires challenging the status quo and changing our own, deeply-ingrained habits. That can feel like trying to lift a house when you do it all alone.

Think about a mom with gluten intolerance whose family eats bread in front of her for every meal. Or a teen with major depression who's forced to sit in front of a computer screen for twelve hours a day for virtual learning. How are they expected to succeed?

It takes a family to eat healthy. A community to keep our kids safe. A tribe to lift whole houses off the ground.

When you join Turtle Tree, you inherit a tribe. If you wish, it can be an irreplaceable source of knowledge, support, strength, and well-being. Together, we intend to lift houses.
