Inner Works Acupuncture Services & Results

At Inner Works Acupuncture, we offer three clinical modalities that work synergistically; Five Element Acupuncture, Zero Balancing, and Herbs and Nutrition. These services result in core-level healing lasting long after treatment for chronic conditions and mind-body disorders, culminating in life-long well-being.


Acupuncture is the method of placing small needles in key points within the body to release the blocked energy causing pain or illness. At Inner Works, we practice a specific form of acupuncture called Five Element Acupuncture, which reconnects our bodies to nature to create the natural conditions for us to heal ourselves from within.

Zero Balancing

Zero Balancing is a form of hands-on body work that aligns energy and physical structure within the bones and tissues of the body. It promotes relaxation, openness, and deep healing. When you are in a relaxed state and your energy is aligned, the healing benefits of Five Element Acupuncture are enhanced. Clients often report a feeling of expanded consciousness after Zero Balancing sessions.


Lovers of Chinese herbal medicine know that each herbal formula carries different qualities that can provide relief and general healing for a wide array of conditions, and rarely have side-effects. Used correctly, they are very safe and may eliminate the need for Western pharmaceutical or over-the-counter (OTC) drugs that can cause unpleasant side effects.


Nutrition is a fundamental part of the overall picture of well-being. Our bodies and minds cannot function to their highest quality or heal when they are starved for the right nutrients. Eating whole foods with therapeutic properties is key for our acupuncture and Zero Balancing clients looking to revitalize their health in a complete and holistic way.
