Acupuncture Treatments

Chinese medicine is so much more than just acupuncture. I am also trained in herbal medicine, 5-element nutrition, and different types of traditional hands-on techniques. I find that these complementary therapies can enhance the effects of acupuncture, helping you get better faster, giving me the ability to address a wide range of diverse conditions. If any of these therapies would be beneficial for your condition, I will include them with your session at no extra charge. My toolbox includes:


  • This fundamental therapy helps get your chi flowing properly, improves the functioning of your internal organs, and balances emotions.

Chinese Herbal Medicine

  • I carry dozens of classic Chinese herbal formulas, available in a convenient pill form.

5-Element Nutrition

  • Classic Chinese dietary therapy considers both your condition and constitution to help improve a wide variety of issues.

Ba Guan: Fire Cupping

  • I do traditional fire cupping and specialize in moving cupping, with glide provided by Chinese herbal oils, liniments, and salves.

Tui Na: Chinese Medical Massage

  • This type of massage is similar to deep tissue massage and is used in conjunction with Chinese herbal oils, liniments, and salves.

Zhi Ya: Acupressure

  • With this technique manual pressure is applied to the acupuncture points. It often includes the use of Chinese herbal oils, liniments, and salves.

Chi Nei Tsang: Internal Organ Massage

  • Another specialized massage technique that focuses specifically on improving the functioning of the internal organs.

Gua Sha: Massage with Jade and Horn Tools

  • This traditional technique for pain utilizes specialized massage tools along with Chinese herbal oils, liniments, and salves.

Topical Herbal Formulas for Pain

  • I carry many different types of Chinese herbal oils, liniments, salves, plasters, and compresses that can help with pain.
Branches of Chinese Medicine
"I've been seeing Nancy Hyton for over two years and the care I receive is wonderful. Nancy has worked with me to relieve anxiety, stress, and anger. She is compassionate, listens, offers additional therapies (Chinese herbs, acupressure), and advises as needed or as asked. Nancy's work has a significant impact on my health and well-being. Her office space and treatment rooms are very soothing and I can relax and unwind completely. I have recommended and will continue to recommend her work." ~Kathleen L.
