When we let things take their natural course while living in concert with nature, we achieve wú wéi. In Chinese, wú wéi translates to "effortless action" or "non-action." For Daoists, this means to be in alignment with the rhythm of the elements both within and outside the body - effortlessly and spontaneously in harmony.
Wellness means "the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal." As our patient, our wish is for you to be an active participant in your health and wellness. We envision a world where patients are empowered to share in their own health outcomes. The "non-action" of wú wéi should not stop a person from living a proactive life, but their choices and activities should fit into the natural pattern of the world around them.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes a body in balance is a healthy body. TCM is one of the most comprehensive models of medical care based on thousands of years of clinical studies. Current-day research further incorporates TCM's understandings and findings into modern medicine. TCM is a medicine in which the body is seen as a whole, not defined by a disease but by an imbalance. By treating the whole person and utilizing the wide variety of services offered, your body can be brought back to a state of balance without limitations.
Wú Wéi Wellness is dedicated to offering a unique and complete healthcare experience in a reposeful setting - acupuncture, cosmetic acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, bodywork, herbal medicine, microneedling, infrared sauna, PEMF, and light therapy. These services are offered to allow for the continued and active pursuit of good health, growth, and balance.

nothing is left undone."

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Acupuncture is a recognized and respected alternative for treating a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions. Acupuncture supports your whole body by returning it to a state of homeostasis, boosting immune function, increasing circulation, decreasing inflammation, and releasing endorphins (innate painkillers).
During a treatment, hair-thin, single-use, sterile needles are inserted in specific points selected by a licensed acupuncturist in order to activate your body's own healing powers. Each treatment is tailored to the patient's needs, and treatment plans are based on an evidence-based approach.
Accessory techniques, such as moxibustion, cupping, gua sha, and infrared heat therapy, can augment your acupuncture treatment or can work alone to treat a number of different conditions.
Chinese herbs are medicine - with few or no side effects. Herbs can be prescribed as decoctions (herbal medicinal tea), granules (like instant coffee), pills, tinctures, and topicals. Chinese herbs are often used together with acupuncture to enhance the therapeutic effects of treatment but are a stand-alone discipline of Chinese medicine. We have a practitioner that is specially trained in herbal medicine for dermatological conditions.
Food is medicine - eating well is foundational to your overall wellness. Functional nutrition honors the fact that food is not only fuel for your body but also an extremely useful tool to help us address the underlying cause of your condition. We incorporate nutritional therapy and supplementation recommendations to make lasting lifestyle changes for better health.
Our full-spectrum far infrared sauna warms you from the inside out at a cellular level and increases circulation, improves metabolism, flushes toxins, provides pain relief, improves immunity & calms the mind.
Light therapy is the application of specific wavelengths of light energy to tissue to obtain therapeutic benefits. Using technology developed by NASA, this non-invasive treatment helps compromised cells regenerate and is often used to treat acne, fight wrinkles, and ease pain.
PEMF, a technology developed by NASA, is a non-invasive therapeutic device that delivers pulsating magnetic frequencies that interact with cellular metabolism to produce a wide range of healing benefits.
Cupping and gua sha are techniques that have been part of Chinese medicine for thousands of years and can be used to liberate the body from pathology lying deep within the tissues. Like a deep tissue massage, cupping and gua sha help the body pull fresh oxygenated blood into an area with congested circulation, release toxins, increase lymphatic flow, relax tight muscles, reduce inflammation, and aid recovery. These are effective stand-alone therapies used for a wide variety of conditions or to augment the primary treatment plan.
Massage promotes healthy soft tissues by increasing circulation, improving the delivery of nutrients to soft tissue for growth and repair, and improving mood and sleep while facilitating the removal of metabolic waste.
