Gentle & Safe Form of Healing

Acupuncture is based on this concept that we should all be in balanced both structurally, functionally, and energetically. This balance is established and maintained by channels of vital energy (Qi) that run on the inside of the body. Using acupuncture points we are able to tap into these channels and influence the flow of this QI to effect different functions of the body, whether it’s a decrease in inflammation or an increase in healing. Utilizing this tool, we are able to restore the bodies innate ability to heal and to balance. We can affect almost any and every part of the human body.


Modern scientific research shows that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system and endocrine system meaning the hormones to release chemicals in the muscles the spinal cord and the brain. This results in dramatically improved energy and biochemical balance in the body.

The integration of acupuncture in modern hospitals and medical settings further validates its place in the health care picture especially in the promotion of healing acute and chronic injuries as well as long term emotional well being. After several thousand years of successful clinical application it is being shown as the primary mode of treatment for many current conditions.

Acupuncture is a recognized and respected alternative for treating acute and chronic conditions, and has been practiced for more than 3000 years. Its effectiveness is documented by the World Health Organization. Acupuncture is complementary to, and is often used in conjunction with, Western medicine.

We believe that patients can heal faster when they receive care from a team of practitioners, using a variety of therapeutic modalities.

How Acupuncture Works

Oriental Medical experts say that pain and disease are caused by an imbalance in the body. Acupuncture works to restore proper balance, returning the body to a more healthy state. In an acupuncture treatment, thin, sterile needles are inserted at very specific points on the body. These points are carefully selected by the Licensed Acupuncturist according to the patient’s problem. Each treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs.


According to the Mayo Clinic, acupuncture stimulates nerves, muscles, and connective tissue to boost the activity of your body’s own natural painkillers and increase blood flow. Emphasis is placed on understanding and treating the underlying cause of each individual’s imbalance. This holistic approach treats not only physical complaints, but also emotional, environmental, and lifestyle conditions. Throughout history, more people have used acupuncture and Oriental Medicine than all other types of medicines combined. Today it helps people throughout this country and around the world.
