Acupuncturist, Rachel Kriger, M.Ac., L.Ac.
Rachek Kriger, M.Ac., L.Ac. graduated from Tai Sophia Institute in 2009, with a Masters of Acupuncture. Through her work, she helps people of all ages feel more ease in their lives physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. She is grateful to be of service in the world through her interactions in the acupuncture treatment room. Her goal is to partner with you on your journey toward maintaining balance and wellness in your life. The benefits you receive in the treatment room will ripple outward to all areas of your life.
My philosophy is that acupuncture will give you the opportunity to create more ease in your life. Acupuncture treatment works by stimulating your immune system and increasing your body awareness. We work together with your stronger immune system and increased awareness to develop an individualized treatment plan that allows you to be well and thrive.
So lets get you scheduled...
Your first appointment will last 75 minutes and will consist of a health history conversation, and your first needle treatment. During this time our main focus is to get to know you and to understand your health concerns so that we can focus treatment on your needs. This is also a great opportunity for you to get a baseline awareness of your daily patterns that we will track together.
Subsequent treatments will last approximately 1 hour. During each session we will begin with a conversation to discuss your progress on your path of wellness and determine the areas for further improvement. The needle treatment is artfully designed for you in that moment to create the opening for new possibilities in your life. These can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual in nature. It is all connected. We will also discuss practices you can do between treatments to assure the lasting effects you desire.

We also work with women during their pregnancy to help them achieve wellness and comfort through this transformational time.

Cupping for Pain Relief & Relaxation
Cupping can be thought of as “the inverse of massage”. It is similar to the practice of Tui Na, a traditional Chinese medicinal massage technique, using pressure to relieve pain in specific body parts, as well as along acupuncture channels, except it uses suction to achieve a similar goal. It gently pulls on muscle, fascia, and skin to engage several bodily systems simultaneously. The suction and negative pressure can relax stiff muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. The cups are generally left on for 10 to 15 minutes, while the patient relaxes, and then oil can be applied, if desired. Cupping is typically combined with acupuncture in a common treatment, but can be used alone, as well.
