Circulation Therapy


Experience the Healing Power of Botanical Therapy

We’re thrilled to introduce a premium botanical therapy at Atlantic Acupuncture. Under the guidance of Dr. Dawn Gifford, DOM, LAc, we’re among the privileged few to offer Botanical Biohacking’s elite herbal treatments. 

Once a luxury enjoyed only by Chinese emperors for its health and vitality-enhancing properties, this therapeutic foot soak is now available for you to reap its numerous benefits.

In the world of traditional Chinese medicine, poor blood circulation, or Blood Stasis (Chinese: 血瘀), is a foundational concern in many ailments. Harnessing the ancient Chinese practice, our circulation therapy rejuvenates, alleviates pain, enhances skin health, and holistically promotes well-being.

The Treatment Experience

Indulge in a 30-minute foot soak infused with medicinal herbs. The aromatic steam generated from these herbs will envelope you, addressing specific health concerns based on the herbal concoction.

These potent herbs directly stimulate the foot’s blood vessels, instantly coursing through the body.

This boosts circulation, clears meridians, balances Qi and blood, purges toxins, and dispels blood stagnation.

Addressing Various Ailments

Clients immerse their feet in medicinal herbs for 30 minutes, steam being generated from the herbal medicine will permeate the whole body and into the nose achieving specific health purposes consistent with the herbs used. Herbal medicine directly acts on blood vessels of the feet, which immediately circulate throughout the entire body, advancing blood circulation, dredging meridians, reconciling Qi and blood, expelling toxins, removing blood stasis.
