Why Choose Acupuncture?

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are versatile treatment methods that date back over 5000 years originating in ancient China. These methods are used to heal and balance the body. They are effective in treating various health concerns through the use of extremely thin filiform needles inserted into specific acupuncture points. Each treatment is tailored to the patient's specific health needs.

Can Acupuncture Help Me?

Acupuncture is effective in treating many conditions, ranging from pain management to relieving stress and anxiety to women's health issues such as PMS and fertility. 

Does Acupuncture Hurt?

Different people have different responses to the acupuncture treatment.  Some feel a dull ache or pressure at the site, while others may feel a tingling or electrical sensation. The needles are extremely thin - thinner than a human hair - and are typically painless upon insertion.

How Many Treatments Will it Take?

Most people experience improvement of their condition within 3-5 treatments.

What is Gua Sha?

Gua Sha is lubricated scraping of the skin using a stone or ceramic tool.  This increases blood flow to the area and releases fascia and muscle tension.

What is Tui Na?

Tui Na is a group of Chinese massage techniques used to release muscle tension. Tui Na is used in conjunction with acupuncture to increase the therapeutic effect of the treatment.

What is Cupping?

Cupping is the application of suction to specific points and muscle groups. This promotes muscle release, increases blood flow to the area, decreases inflammation and often provides pain relief.
