More than Two thousand years ago, ancient Chinese people discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Chinese medicine theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces (yin and yang). This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body’s vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways or channels, through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi by inserting and manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points, which is able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body’s ability to heal itself.
We use a holistic approach, working with each individual to customize the treatment to individual needs. As a result, our acupuncture and herbal prescriptions help a variety of conditions, including pain management, women’s health issues such as menstrual problems and menopause, diet, weight loss, infertility and more. We cordially encourage you join us and witness the wisdom of this ancient medicine, which understands the connections between the body and the spirit.
