Acupuncture has origins in Eastern medicine and follows a holistic approach to health and wellness. Acupuncture is a therapy that stimulates the central nervous system to release the body’s natural healing ability. The needles used in acupuncture are placed in strategic points throughout the body to promote physical and emotional wellbeing. Dr. Hanley has advanced training in acupuncture and the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (NADA) protocol. She uses acupuncture therapy to help patients relieve stress, reduce sickness, and improve mental clarity and behavioral health, as well as to improve immune system function.
Dr. Hanley also makes available Moxibustion (MOXA) Therapy as an add-on during acupuncture sessions. The burning of small, spongy mugwort leaves is used to enhance acupuncture’s healing effects. She also uses Ear Seeds to aid in smoking cessation.
