Acupuncture involves the insertion of extremely thin needles through the skin at strategic points on the body. Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force – known as qi (pronounced “chee”) – which flows through pathways known as meridians or channels in the body. By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture helps rebalance the flow of qi. Modern research has shown that acupuncture stimulates nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Stimulation of the points boosts the activity of the body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.

Jorga Houy is one of a very small handful of Licensed Acupuncturists to integrate NKT and acupuncture.
David Weinstock, author of Neurokinetic Therapy, an Innovative Approach to Manual Muscle Testing, co-developed this technique in the mid-1980s, and has used it to treat a wide variety of disorders. The NeuroKinetic Therapy® corrective movement system protocol employing a system of precise muscle tests has the ability to change the programming of the Motor Control Center (MCC) in the cerebellum. The MCC coordinates all movement patterns in the body. It learns through failure.
Acupressure uses the same theories and concepts as acupuncture, but rather than stimulating points with a needle, the therapist uses fingers, hands, or occasionally other tools. With over a decade of manual therapy experience, Jorga has combined a variety of traditional Eastern and Western massage techniques and has derived a very relaxing and therapeutic system of acupressure.
Traditional Chinese herbal therapy draws from a list of thousands of substances from flowers and roots to leaves and sticks, as well as a variety of fruits, nuts and even some animal ingredients.
Cupping is an ancient form of therapy known all over the world in which a local suction is created on the skin using fire to create a vacuum inside of a glass cup. Cupping therapy mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing.
