How We Achieve Our Results


Acupuncture works by stimulating sensory nerves under the skin and in the muscles, with fine, solid needles. The result of this stimulation has been shown to: cause the body to release pain relieving endorphins, increase circulation, reduce inflammation, etc. Often times significant pain relief and stress reduction can be found after the first treatment. Acupuncture is great for both acute and chronic conditions.


Also known as Low Level Light/Laser Therapy (LLLT), photobiomodulation has been shown to have effective results for numerous conditions as shown in thousands of studies. We utilize LLLT for its effectiveness and its relationship to the more traditional Chinese medicine counterpart, moxibustion. Both moxibustion and LLLT have been shown to reduce pain, improve circulation, resolve digestive conditions, and more.

Diet & Lifestyle Advice

At The Subtle Point clinic we try and advise all of our patients to modify their lifestyle or diet if needed to help alleviate the symptoms of certain conditions. The advice that we give is simple, and there will never be any complicated diet plans involved. The lifestyle advice that we give is also simple and can include: incorporating short meditation sessions to your routine, working out, spending more time outdoors, etc.

Herbs & Supplements

For thousands of years Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners have relied on herbal medicine to treat illness, alleviate pain, and to prolong health. It has been said that the greatest treasure that TCM has to offer is in the herbal formulas. These formulas were created in such a way that you will receive an effective dose of the main herb while the “helper” herbs in the formula mitigate any potential side effects.
