The therapies at The Balance Point are comprehensive, using a combination of acupuncture, massage therapy, essential oils, homeopathy, nutritional therapy, and muscle balancing techniques.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective holistic medicine backed by more than three thousand years of practice and research. It is practiced worldwide both as a primary and adjunctive treatment for a wide range of conditions. While there are somewhat standard treatment protocols for many conditions (Western style acupuncture), the clinical success of acupuncture is related - at least in part - to the wide range of diagnostic signs and symptoms, which are taken into effect when looking at an imbalance (Eastern style acupuncture). An acupuncturist may check your pulse, ask about your diet and lifestyle, palpate your abdomen, etc. This range of diagnostic information allows acupuncture practitioners to develop a treatment strategy that is unique to you and your experience of a particular condition.

Massage therapy at The Balance Point is much different than a massage you would get at a spa or salon. Our technicians have been trained extensively in pain management techniques. This affords us the skills to offer a deep tissue massage that is not only relaxing, but also truly therapeutic because it creates a balance in the musculoskeletal structure of the body. Our massages are designed to create balance. Read more
Essential oils are the subtle, aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark, and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs, and trees, through distillation. According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians were using essential oils thousands of years before Christ to heal the sick. They are the oldest form of remedies and cosmetics known to man and were considered more valuable than gold. Science is only now beginning to investigate the incredible healing properties of essential oils. Read more
Assessment is the key to proper healing. Comprehensive assessments should provide specific nutrients the body needs without burdening it with too many supplements to assimilate. We use three types of assessments in order to target the cause of your body’s imbalance. This enables us to recommend supplements that will assist your body in healing without unnecessarily selling you supplements that simply treat the symptoms. Read more
Muscle Balancing is a unique therapy for the treatment of musculoskeletal imbalances. These imbalances encompass most of the aches and pains we all suffer from at one time or another. Muscle balancing therapy eliminates the cause of the pain, so the symptoms go away. We've been able to eliminate the pain and suffering of hundreds of patients who had been told that nothing could be done for them. This therapy works great on sports injuries like rotator cuff strains and equally well on repetitive strain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome. Read more
