The insertion of hair-thin, sterile, single-use needles at points across the body's surface. Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that are shallowly inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of Qi (energy) through channels known as meridians. Qi is proposed to regulate a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance, and to be influenced by the opposing forces of yin energy and yang energy. Disease is proposed to result from the flow of Qi being disrupted and yin and yang becoming imbalanced. Acupuncture is safe, painless and effective. According to the World Health Organization, acupuncture is effective in treating a broad range of physical and emotional ailments.
Using ancient knowledge of plants and other natural substances, Chinese Herbal medicine focuses on treating an individual from the inside out. Combinations of herbs, or "formulas", are designed specifically for your needs. Formulas can come in the form of pills, powder, or tea. Chinese Herbs do not have the side effects of many prescription drugs, and are completely natural and safe. Based upon 2,000 years of knowledge and tradition, Chinese Herbal medicine is a powerful healing tool. It can be used alone, or in combination with acupuncture. It is effective at treating many common complaints, such as: anxiety, allergies, headache, digestive disturbance, insomnia, depression, weight loss, common cold, arthritis, stress, and much more.
A technique for drawing blood to the surface of the body by the application of glass vessels from which air has been evacuated by heat to form a partial vacuum. Usually preformed on a patients back, cupping is basically a backwards massage. The skin is gently suctioned into the cups, which can either be left in place or moved around in a massaging manner. Cupping feels amazing and is great for tension and pain, as it greatly increases the energy and blood flow to the area. It is also helpful in treating upper respiratory complaints, and speeds recovery from sports injury.
Gua Sha is a healing technique often used in Asia by practitioners of Traditional Medicine, in both the clinical setting and in homes. It involves palpation and cutaneous stimulation where the skin is pressured, in strokes, by a round-edged instrument. The stroking of the skin creates a redness called "Sha". Raising Sha releases heat and removes blood stagnation (which is considered toxic), promoting normal circulation and metabolic processes.Patients experience immediate relief from pain, stiffness, fever, chills, cough, nausea, and so on. Gua Sha is valuable in the prevention and treatment of headache, acute infectious illness, upper respiratory and digestive problems, and many other acute or chronic disorders.

“I was very surprised by the immediate relief I felt for my torn hamstring after 1 treatment from Kylah. She explained what she was doing and what to expect and the results blew me away. It was the 1st time I felt any relief since my injury. Can't wait for my next treatment!! Thanks Kylah!"

“Kylah Pata at Vitality Acupuncture has a very rare quality in her ability to listen with compassion and then take her extensive knowledge and apply that knowledge to your situation."
John L., Denver CO
"I went to Vitality Acupuncture for shoulder pain and insomnia. The room had a very peaceful feeling to it. Kylah was professional and sympathetic to the symptoms I was experiencing. The procedure itself was amazingly calming. After about 2 sessions and the help of some herbs she gave me, my shoulder pain had diminished and my sleep schedule had returned to normal. I would highly recommend Vitality Acupuncture as a wonderful alternative to conventional western medical practices."
