Safe, Effective, Drug-Free Alternative


Acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive and effective medical treatment involving the stimulation of acupuncture points by inserting extremely thin needles through the skin.  

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is a healthcare system based on principles that go back nearly two thousand years.  

Pain and illnesses are signs that the body is out of balance.  

Traditional acupuncture promotes natural healing by restoring a diseased body to its balanced state.  By treating the underlying (root) problem of your illness, acupuncture can alleviate symptoms while simultaneously lessening and hopefully preventing disease recurrence.  

Acupuncture focuses on restoring a body to its balanced state, and is uniquely suited for successfully treating a wide range of conditions. 

How Does Acupuncture Work?

Acupuncture enhances recuperative power and immunity

  • Acupuncture affects our nervous systems, our immune system, as well as our endocrine system
  • Acupuncture relaxes muscles and nerve tissues, lessens inflammation and thereby facilitates the healing of our bodies
  • Acupuncture triggers the release of the body’s internal chemicals such as endorphins, which have pain-relieving properties
  • Acupuncture uses thin, sterile, single use needles


Why Acupuncture?

The focus is on the individual, not their illness  

Each patient’s symptoms are examined in relationship to each other and to the patient as a whole.  Emotional and physical health are seen as interdependent and treatment will address the patient’s unique pattern of disharmony.  

Every symptom gives me clues about your individual diagnosis.  Two patients may come to see me for back pain but get very different acupuncture treatments. 

A growing body of “evidence-based clinical research” shows that acupuncture successfully treats a wide range of health problems.

What is Cupping?

Cupping therapy increases circulation to the cupped area, releases  toxins, and stimulates the acupuncture points to relax tight muscles and move stagnant energy.  

Cupping can be especially great for treating back and neck pain and tight muscles.  

What is Moxibustion?

Burning Moxa, the herb Artemis Vulgair, near the skin can warm and tonify the acupuncture points. 

What is Acu-facial Rejuvenation?

Au-facial rejuvenation or cosmetic acupuncture is a full body approach to skincare.
