How We Help You Heal

Our board certified acupuncturists are experts in all modalities of Chinese medicine. At your appointment, any needed modalities are utilized to promote the best possible medical outcome for your condition.

Acupuncture icon


Tiny needles deliver big results. Acupuncture is the shallow insertion of sterile and filiform needles, releasing endorphins, increasing circulation, and promoting autonomic balance. Learn more about our acupuncture services.

Cupping icon


Cupping is like a reverse deep tissue massage. It releases muscle knots and tension from targeted areas in the body through the application of glass or plastic cups to the skin. In tandem with acupuncture, it can treat chronic and acute pain of all kinds. Learn more about our cupping services.
Herbal Medicine icon

Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbal medicine utilizes hundreds of herbs and combinations of herbs to provide highly specific treatments for many symptoms. Our board certified herbalists can create exactly the right formula for your constipation, IBS, allergies, PMS, dysmenorrhea, or many other health concerns. Learn more about how we treat with herbal medicine.

Moxibustion icon


Moxibustion uses the aromatic herb mugwort to warm specific acupuncture points. This warming promotes circulation and blood flow to treat pain and inflammation. Moxibustion also has a special place in women’s health, as it can warm the uterus and turn breech babies. Learn more about how we treat with moxibustion.
Gua Sha icon

Gua sha

Similar to cupping, Gua Sha is a manual therapy for pain relief. A stone tool is pushed along the skin to release adhesions in soft tissue. The result? Pain relief, increased circulation, and faster healing. Learn more about how we treat with gua sha.

Nutrition icon


We offer TCM nutrition counseling based on eating with the seasons, preparing whole foods, and using food as medicine. Learn more how we help with nutrition and wellness planning.

What to expect?

Cherry Blossom Healing Arts was born from the idea that you deserve to feel better. If you have health concerns and aren’t exactly sure of where to start, this is the place for you. If you’ve tried a number of specialists and can’t seem to get any answers, we’re here to listen and help.

Our clinic is designed around you. We know you’re busy and that’s why we have evening and weekends available for return appointments. At your first appointment, we’ll work with you to map out a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs and healthcare goals. This will include how often you should come in, home care tips, nutrition advice, and herbs or supplements if they are prescribed.

Supporting Your Health & Wellness

JSNeuropathic Pain

Cherry Blossom Healing arts has been a godsend—especially in the pandemic

I have been seeing Elyse since 2014 for various ailments. I love that CBHA's philosophy is to work in tandem with western medicine—it is great to see a holistic approach! Elyse served as a welcome respite in 2017 when I had ophthalmologic shingles. After the shingles past, I still have recurring nerve tingles/pain through my head and face. When I approached my doctor, she said that pain is not common but totally normal, and I could experience it for the rest of my life.

The pain was uncomfortable and not in a manageable place. Elyse has worked through not only acupuncture but also herbs to make this pain manageable. In the pandemic—I experienced anxiety, sleep issues, and the recurrence of pain. While I could not come in for acupuncture, Elyse worked via telemedicine to help get my sleep on track and ease my anxiety through herbs.

I have been very impressed how CBHA has deployed technology to meet the needs of their patients and ensure that our well-being comes first.
