Two Tiger Acupuncture provides individualized healthcare specializing
in physical injuries, women’s health, fertility and labor prepration.
Using a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Tuina (Chinese medical massage), qigong (Chinese health exercises), Chinese medicine can treat a wide variety of ailments. The strength of the medicine is rooted in using natural substances to bolster and stimualte the body’s own healing mechanisms. Chinese medicine is minimally invasive and proven over thousands of years to be safe and effective. It also combines excellently with other modalities of medicine.
Childbirth is an amazing experience that is extremely draining and difficult on the mother. Two Tiger Acupuncture supports mothers from conception to delivery and beyond. We offer comprehensive fertility treatments. We help mothers with a history of miscarriage to bring their children to term. We help prepare moms for labor by boosting their energy reserves and helping to position the baby correctly. And we help moms during labor through doula services.
Education is the keystone in supporting healthy living practices. We teach qigong (Chinese health exercises) and bagua zhang (a Chinese internal martial art) that help students to cultivate health on a daily basis. By becoming in tune with our bodies we are able to regulate our immune systems and make them more efficient. We also periodically teach classes in a variety of Chinese medicine topics ranging from injury medicine, herbal product production, and tui na (medical massage).

Liu Zi Jue Qi Gong
Six Healing Sounds
Adam is excited to be offering a 5 week class on the six healing sounds, one of the oldest methods of Taoist health preservation exercises in China. Each sound creates a vibration which stimulates and harmonizes the functioning of a specific internal organ and its related meridian. Six Healing Sound Qi Gong has been found particularly effective in breaking up stagnation and blockages to the flow of qi (vital force) and blood in the organs and their surrounding tissues.
