Transformation. Empowerment. Renewal.




At Phoenix Rising Acupuncture, various types of acupuncture are used to best address your health concerns.  Learn about 5 benefits of acupuncture here.  While the foundation of my training lies in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, I have advanced training in more specialized forms of acupuncture. 




Esoteric Acupuncture

Esoteric Acupuncture was developed by Dr. Mikio Sankey to address the complex imbalances of people in modern society.  If you have a physical illness that does not respond well to traditional methods of treatment, it may be that the root of your illness lies deeper than what conventional therapies (which take into account only anatomical or physiological issues) can treat.  Esoteric Acupuncture is a 90-minute session that works on deeper levels – beyond the physical.  

Why Choose Esoteric Acupuncture?

  • Conventional treatments have provided little to no relief for your physical ailment

  • You suspect that the root cause of your ailment may have deeper pathology

  • You are searching for deeper meaning in your spiritual life & a greater spiritual connection

  • You are searching for a means that will help deepen your current yoga or meditation practice

  • You are guided towards discovering your soul’s purpose or hearing your calling




Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (Cosmetic Acupuncture)

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture (also referred to as Cosmetic Acupuncture) is a safe, cost-effective, non-invasive, and natural way to help reverse the signs of aging.  From a physiological perspective, “micro traumas” are produced by the insertion of tiny acupuncture needles, thereby stimulating collagen, elastin, and fibrinogen production.  (You, know, those skin-plumping cells we had plenty of in our teens and twenties. wink. wink.)  Stimulating the production of these cells helps bring back a more youthful appearance.

At Phoenix Rising Acupuncture, we use additional facial rejuvenation tools and techniques, such as jade rolling, facial cupping and sculpting, and LED light therapy, along with each cosmetic acupuncture session.

Phoenix Rising Acupuncture offers an on-site herbal pharmacy of over 250 premium Chinese herbal formulas and dietary supplements.  Each of the herbal formulas are custom-prescribed for your condition and are only available by prescription to established patients.  The pharmacy is not open to the public.

The herbal products I have chosen to carry are sold only through licensed health care professionals.  I only use products which have undergone extensive safety testing and have proven to be free from heavy metals, pesticide residues, and/or unlabeled ingredients.  I do not carry products sold under multi-level marketing structures.  In order to ensure optimum safety, I strongly caution against seeking out products online, as many Chinese herbal products available online to customers are counterfeit, are imported to the United States illegally, and/or are manufactured by unscrupulous companies that do not adhere to high-quality standards.  

In addition to the herbal pharmacy, I also offer wild-crafted, organic skincare and hair products, bath and body products, crystal-infused essential oil blends, herbal foot soaks, and tinctures for weight loss and sugar cravings.  




Cupping Therapy (Myofascial Release)

Cupping Therapy, sometimes referred to as Myofascial Release, is a simple technique that applies suction to the skin; it quickly releases muscle tension to relieve pain; it loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up fascial adhesions from old injuries or overworked muscles, and increases blood and lymph to skin, muscles, and connective tissues.  Often times, when pain is present, it is due to blockage of blood flow to the affected area.  Cupping effectively brings stagnant blood and cellular waste to the surface, so that it can all be flushed out by the liver and kidneys.  This allows fresh, oxygenated blood, cells, and nutrients to flow freely to the targeted areas in order to facilitate healing.

Cupping should only be done by an expert practitioner.  Although some massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, or estheticians offer cupping therapy, they generally lack the in-depth training and experience that is required to apply cupping safely and effectively.  At best, cupping performed by an untrained practitioner will be ineffective.  At worst, it can cause burns, blisters, or scar tissue that result in further pain instead of relief.



aroma acupoint

Aroma Acupoint Therapy

Aroma Acupoint Therapy (AAT) is a gentle, safe and profoundly effective healing modality that utilizes the energetic potential locked within pure essential oils.  Treatment involves placing particular oils on specific body points or reflex zones in order to trigger physiological and energetic changes, which will help bring the body into a state of homeostasis, or balance.  AAT works on the basis of mutual resonance through the systematic and intentional combination of essential oils and acupuncture points, resulting in a more significant clinical effect than either of these treatment methods alone.  

I was always scared and hesitant to try acupuncture but after dealing with facial pain for more than 6 months (and seeing numerous drs and dentists), I gave it a try. I am so pleased with Lori’s treatment for me and am so glad I sought her care! I’d also like to add that I am a dentist myself and truly believe that Eastern medicine has a place in our society! Thank you Lori!
