Your Different Treatment Options
Acupuncture Services in Litchfield County, CT
Dr. Kenneth Hoffman, our founder, is a professional acupuncturist who has treated thousands of patients. The technique of acupuncture finds its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which is based on the belief of balance and harmony. This balance is called the Qi (“chee”) and flows through the body. Through the use of acupuncture and placing tiny, sterile needles into touch points, we aim to help bring proper energy flow through your body and restore your Qi.*
Secondary Acupuncture Therapies
This treatment technique is another approach to find and restore balance in the body. With the use of glass or bamboo jars, cupping creates a vacuum over isolated points on the body. This increases blood flow, releasing strained areas of the body, and relieving pain. This is a common technique for Litchfield County athletes to decrease muscle soreness.*
Diathermy is a form of heat therapy that is targeted towards tight muscles and inflamed joints. Known as “moist heat therapy,” diathermy stimulates heat generation in specific areas to increase circulation. This makes tightened tissue relax and helps promote recovery.*
A less physical but just as impactful approach is moxibustion, which relies on the use of herbs and their natural healing properties. It is another type of Traditional Chinese Medicine that facilitates healing with increased circulation and aids in maintaining current health standings.*
Tui Nai is a unique approach to healing that can both standalone or be used in partnership with acupuncture. Is it therapeutic massage that aids in relaxing the entire body, relieving stress from inflamed joints, and relaxes strained muscles. This therapeutic massage promotes Qi balance and helps the body heal as a whole, rather than in isolated areas. For our Litchfield County patients who are unable to use acupuncture, such as young children, Tui Nai is a safe and effective form of treatment.*
Dietary Therapy in Litchfield County, CT
Healing the body from the outside is an effective approach for several conditions. However, sometimes treating it from the inside is necessary. That’s why we offer dietary therapy for our Litchfield County patients. With correct nutrition and maintained diets, healthy habits and patterns can be established to overcome health complications and establish harmony.*
A key principle in dietary therapy is the belief of moderation. By applying moderation, our patients can find and establish their Qi and balance with nutrition and medicine.

To help promote beneficial and healthy living outside of treatment sessions, Sophia Natural Health Center offers our Litchfield County patients herbal medicines and supplementation. This helps establish a quality lifestyle with nutritious medicinal properties, such as minerals, amino acids, vitamins, and more.
