About Tradishen Acupuncture

Welcome to Tradishen Japanese Acupuncture & Wellness, a healing space dedicated to offering true relief to patients via traditional styles of Japanese-infused Chinese Medicine. The name “Tradishen” incorporates our mission to revive traditional methods of healing rooted in Japanese healing (tradi-) as well as striving to balance the mind, body and spirit with (-shen) being the Chinese medical term referring to the aspect of our being that is spiritual, embodying our consciousness, emotions, and thought.

Why the emphasis on the Japanese style you might ask? After years of pain and anxiety, owner Dr. Monica Foitzik, DACM found profound relief from Japanese meridian therapy and Kampo herbal medicine that she did not achieve even utilizing other forms of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. “The agonizing anxiety attacks just stopped, I could not believe it,” Dr. Monica says. This relief moved her to study and incorporate these styles into her practice as well as begin teaching newer generations of acupuncturists what she learned.

Today, Tradishen includes practitioners versed in Japanese meridian therapy, Kampo herbal medicine, moxibustion, massage, cupping, Reiki, Cranial Sacral Therapy, facial rejuvenation and cosmetic acupuncture. We treat an array of symptoms and disorders, but specialize in pain relief, female hormone balancing, fertility, pregnancy, postpartum, GI disorders, mental-emotional imbalances and facial anti-aging concerns.
