Centered Spirit Acupuncture Service


Section Divider

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a holistic approach to care that’s evolved over thousands of years. While our primary healing services are based on Traditional Maya Medicine, we also offer several effective Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities, including acupuncture, cupping, moxibustion and Chinese herbs to address common ailments and infertility issues.


Acupuncture is part of the broader system of Traditional Chinese Medicine and involves inserting very thin needles at various “meridian” points from head to toe.


The American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery include acupuncture in their treatment guidelines for back pain and allergies. Thousands of studies have shown the positive benefits of acupuncture, and many hospitals use acupuncture in their emergency and labor and delivery rooms to ease pain and stress. The military also uses it on the battlefield to ease physical and emotional trauma.


We’re still discovering all of the different ways acupuncture works, but we believe it has a significant effect on the body’s fascia and on neurotransmitters that conduct signals between the brain and the rest of the body.

Another powerful tool in the acupuncturist’s arsenal, Chinese herbal medicine is an integral part of addressing patient conditions, especially when it comes to fertility and women’s health. The combination of herbs and acupuncture has been shown to have a significant impact on fertility outcomes.


Through an individualized, comprehensive approach, our ultimate goal is to identify imbalances that are contributing to the health problems you are experiencing and understand the source of those imbalances. The body wants to be healthy and in balance. Acupuncture and herbs help tip the scale back into your body’s favor. Good sleep, a healthy diet, regular exercise and stress management help keep it that way.


*Our practitioners only work with trustworthy suppliers who do extensive quality control checks on their herbs and manufacturing processes.

Some traditional medicine techniques can overlap between cultures. Cupping, a modality we use in Traditional Maya Medicine, is also used in Chinese Medicine with slight variations. This technique is provided at the discretion of your practitioner. To learn more, visit Cupping Therapy.
