What else I provide?

Chinese Nutritional Counseling

The nutritional aspects of Chinese Medicine are different than the ones provided by Western medicine. Advice is offered based on the Chinese diagnosis in order to find balance within the body.

Cupping and Gua Sha

Cupping and Gua Sha pre-date acupuncture. These massage techniques provide relief from pain by increasing the circulation in the area being treated.

Moxibustion and Topical Medicine

Moxibustion (moxa) is a warming technique that moves qi and blood to relieve pain and improve function. Topical Medicine includes herbal plasters and liniments that are often applied after an acupuncture session to continue the treatment for many hours after the needles are removed.


A somewhat modern technique, electro-acupuncture involves the application of micro or milli current to the inserted acupuncture needles increasing the effectiveness of the treatment for certain conditions. It is most often used for musculo-skeletal conditions and labor induction.

What our clients say

Within minutes I was so relaxed that I forgot I was being treated. My first treatment provided more relief than I expected, and overall, it reduced my pain.

Wendy S

Over the last 25 years I have used 5-6 acupuncturists, Clarissa is the best! I actually make an appointment whenever I am in town.

Margaret W

Clarissa was laid back, willing to answer all of my questions, ad incredibly knowledgeable. Peaceful office, no snobbery or touchy-feeliness here.

Kelly S

Clarissa’s office environment is soothing and her treatments are always uniquely tailored to the shifting needs of each of her clients. Just go!

Sandra D

When meeting with Clarissa she took the time to assess my issues and set up a session to address them. My shoulder and back are already feeling better.


Even if I only see Clarissa once or twice a year, she is always welcoming and friendly, and most important, she remembers past treatment.
