Circulation Therapy


Discover the Transformative Effects of Circulation Therapy

Atlantic Acupuncture proudly presents an exclusive botanical therapy designed to enhance your overall well-being.

Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dawn Gifford, DOM, LAc, we are privileged to offer Botanical Biohacking’s premium herbal treatments.

This therapeutic foot soak, once reserved for Chinese emperors, is now accessible to you, promising a multitude of health benefits.

In the realm of traditional Chinese medicine, addressing poor blood circulation, known as Blood Stasis (Chinese: 血瘀), is fundamental to resolving many health issues.

Drawing from ancient Chinese wisdom, our circulation therapy revitalizes, relieves pain, improves skin health, and promotes holistic wellness.

The Therapeutic Experience

Immerse yourself in a soothing 30-minute foot soak infused with medicinal herbs.

The aromatic steam arising from these herbs envelops you, targeting specific health concerns based on the herbal blend chosen for you.

These potent herbs work directly on the blood vessels in your feet, rapidly spreading their benefits throughout your entire body.

This process boosts circulation, clears meridians, balances Qi and blood, detoxifies, and eliminates blood stagnation.

Addressing a Variety of Ailments

During the 30-minute herbal foot soak, the herbal steam permeates your entire body, delivering health benefits tailored to the specific herbs used.

Medicinal herbs act directly on the foot’s blood vessels, initiating a cascade of effects that enhance blood circulation, unblock meridians, harmonize Qi and blood, eliminate toxins, and alleviate blood stasis.
