Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine

Acupuncture stimulates specific points beneath the skin with fine needles to balance organs and glandular systems of the body.  Acupuncture works at a deep level within the body to redirect and harmonize the flow of the body’s vital energy or Qi (pronounced chee), within the meridian system.  Chinese herbs are used to enhance the effectiveness of the treatments.

The Acupuncturist will review your diet and lifestyle choices, spiritual and meditation practices, exercise routines, and will inquire into your emotional status. This inquiry is regarded with as much importance as the review of your chief medical symptoms.

Acupuncture is a painless and very relaxing process that works at a deep internal level leaving the individual in a calm and alert state of mind.  Acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing potential, strengthen the body’s immune system, and decreases inflammatory responses to eliminate current illness and prevent future illness and disease.
