At Tradishen, we incorporate Japanese-inspired massage techniques into our sessions. 💆🏻

Slow, gradual pressure is applied to release fascial tension. Then, straightening of muscle, tendon and ligaments follow. Preceding this, acupuncture and moxa is applied to internally harmonize the body, making it more receptive to further healing and the moderate-deep pressure more comfortable (IYKYK).

Living in pain doesn’t have to be your story. Let us guide you to a better place 🙏🏽

PAIN.

Even this word can be triggering, right? If you have found yourself in relentless pain, we feel for you ❤️‍🩹

Do you ever wonder why a massage, adjustment and other methods of treating pain might not fully resolve your problem?

In Chinese Medicine, we view pain as having several different causes. We deal with the concepts of Qi, Blood and Body Fluids —and when those things go out of balance, i.e. deficiencies, stagnation and more, then we can have different symptoms arise, including pain.

So why your body might be resistant to healing with other modalities on their own, is because it does not encompass acupuncture and Chinese Medicine’s unique way of addressing underlying conditions.

For example, many women get injured around their me**es. In the acute (but sometimes chronic) state of depletion, her channels and meridians become weak and vulnerable and a simple misstep can lead to a painful injury!!!

Yes, massage and adjustments can be incredibly beneficial, but the ability to improve blood flow, nourish depletion and reduce inflammation from the energetic understanding of Chinese Medicine can lead to greater relief and reduce chances of stressors ending in painful injuries in the future!

Hands-on approach to health 🤲🏼

Have you ever been frustrated when you visited your doctor to address a pain concern and they barely placed their hands on you? Think about it…pain is a sensory experience, how could someone possibly assess your pain without getting an idea of what’s going on through their sensory experience. X-rays, MRIs and other common non-invasive assessments can be helpful, but they do not completely encompass your pain experience.

Here at Tradishen, we have embraced the teachings of Japanese acupuncture styles, because there is a strong emphasis on professional, evaluative palpation to better assess and address your pain.

Ok, how can facial acupuncture actually benefit my skin?

Yes, Botox & fillers can offer you immediate, dramatic results, but they do not encourage the body to rebuild the skin’s integrity. Facial or cosmetic acupuncture allows the body to gradually boost collagen, rebuild cellular structure and improve muscles tone. Our unique massage and gua sha methods help encourage skin, bones and soft tissue to revert back to their youthful state. This therapeutic effect can be long lasting and preventative—especially if you keep up with treatments, diet, lifestyle and self care! This is very similar to going to the gym. So, let’s take your face on a new journey and revive & rejuvenate your skin properly ✨

Needle insertion during acupuncture sends a powerful signal to the brain via the nervous system. We believe that several systems and biological mechanisms are positively affected. You might notice relaxing, pain-relieving sensations occur as the body releases endorphins, norepinephrine and enkephalin in response to treatment. Don’t be discouraged by past experiences with needles and trust our small, but potently-healing acupuncture tools have the ability to give you relief!

Ever felt the anxiety and frustrations of seeking a new, maybe even healthier relationship?

Before you do, remember your mental and physical self care must come first! Acupuncture can help you tune into your mind and body, and even balance emotions that can go haywire! Chinese herbs and acupuncture recognize the association between specific emotions and the different organs and meridians in your body. With a simple treatment plan of acupuncture, herbs, diet and lifestyle advice, you can find yourself more balanced, calm and putting your best foot forward around others 🙏🏽

It is so important to connect to our patients in a positive, supportive, therapeutic manner. We encourage each practitioner to be hands-on, demonstrate positive thinking and language, and teach lifestyle shifts at a manageable pace for longer, sustained healing. Health is an awareness to keep adjusting as the body calls to us. And we’re here to help you!

At Tradishen, we love that our practitioners incorporate an array of techniques and modalities to optimize each treatment to address mind, body and spirit.

Pictured here, .kylesanders is performing CranioSacral Therapy with acupuncture.

CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system, which has been shown to improve the functioning of the central nervous system, as well as many other systems of the body, such as digestive, musculoskeletal, respiratory, circulatory, and more. For those still apprehensive to acupuncture needles, this is a great alternative therapy that achieves amazing results.

Still scared of needles? Try a CST session on its own for a powerful therapeutic effect!

We LOVE moxibustion!

If appropriate, practitioners at Tradishen apply moxibustion to our patients in addition to acupuncture needles. Moxibustion utilizes an herb called mugwort, whose leaves create a small spongy herb that can be crafted into different forms. This style pictured here is called Tonetskyu, a Japanese style in which the herb is rolled into small, rice grain pieces, attached to the skin via a small smear of herbal ointment called shuinko, then lit with an incense stick. Before the heat hits the skin, the practitioner snuffs out the heat. The patient experiences a mild warming sensation and deep relaxation effect.

This style of moxa is beneficial to nourishing deficient channels and points without excessively generating inappropriate heat in the body. We also find it to be powerful in the treatment of pain. Our favorite uses might be its benefit to women’s health issues!

We love our facial rejuvenation sessions at Tradishen! 💆🏻‍♀️

Imagine, simultaneously receiving therapeutic hands + needles to soothe and rejuvenate your skin, meanwhile your body is also pampered with the relaxing effects of acupuncture + moxibustion. Enter a deep relaxation that heals your skin from the inside out, while also correcting any imbalances that exist in the body. By default, your overall health improves. Additionally, your practitioner will assign you appropriate supplements, herbs and diet + lifestyle recommendations to speed up results and leave you addicted to the process of deep healing.

Tradishen offers 2 cosmetic acupuncture sessions:
60 min Energetic Facial Revive
90 min Mind Body Beauty Energetic Facial Rejuve

All new facial rejuvenation patients must first schedule a 30 min consultation performed in person or virtually.

Why Japanese acupuncture?

Here at Tradishen, we specialize in a style of Japanese acupuncture called Japanese meridian therapy. This style emphasizes touch and palpation of the meridians to more exactly pick the placement of acupuncture points on each unique person. It also utilizes even thinner needles than more popular styles of acupuncture, allowing for a more comfortable experience appreciated by the more needle-sensitive population. Needles are often inserted much more shallow (approximately 1-2 mm in depth) or even placed against the skin with a technique called "contact needling”. For even more sensitive types, a small, blunt tool called a “tei shin” may be used in place of needles to stimulate points without the need to prick the skin. Additionally, more advanced forms of applying moxibustion (an external herbal treatment using the herb Mugwort and heat) can be used on acupuncture points to create more relief and relaxation. Not only does this style support patients who are more sensitive, but we find it is highly effective.

Welcome to Tradishen Japanese Acupuncture & Wellness, a healing space dedicated to offering true relief to patients via traditional styles of Japanese-infused Chinese Medicine. The name “Tradishen” incorporates our mission to revive traditional methods of healing rooted in Japanese healing (tradi-) as well as striving to balance the mind, body and spirit with (-shen) being the Chinese medical term referring to the aspect of our being that is spiritual, embodying our consciousness, emotions, and thought. Why the emphasis on the Japanese style you might ask? After years of pain and anxiety, owner Dr. Monica Foitzik, DACM found profound relief from Japanese meridian therapy and Kampo herbal medicine that she did not achieve even utilizing other forms of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. “The agonizing anxiety attacks just stopped, I could not believe it,” Dr. Monica says. This relief moved her to study and incorporate these styles into her practice as well as begin teaching newer generations of acupuncturists what she learned. .foitzik
