Acupuncture

  • has been used for thousands of years as a powerful & effective form of medicine. is one of the oldest, continuously practiced medical systems in the world.  
  • is being incorporated daily as highly beneficial adjunct to Western Medical Treatment.
  • is full of health benefits without the pitfalls of side effects.
  • treats the whole system at every treatment. Coming in with various ailments (seemingly unrelated) and having them all improve at once.
  •  is a natural way to relieve stress.  Less stress improves every aspect of your life. (Sleep, Digestion, Mood, Social, Aging, Pain, Libido, Elimination, etc;)

Acupuncture is the practice of stimulating specific points on the body with thin, sterile needles to correct imbalances in the flow of “qi” or energy through the “meridians” or energy pathways. This process not only improves the free flow of energy but also nourishes and oxygenates the organs and blood.  

And about those "needles”.....  As thin as a human hair, many people barely feel them as they are inserted.   All needles are one-time disposable and pre-sterilized.  Most people who say they are fearful of trying acupuncture due to the needles are quickly converted when they see how gentle, non-invasive and painless it can actually be.

Acupuncture alone is used by many as their first choice for healing and care. It is also very effective in combination with Western treatment to enhance recovery time and alleviate some of the side effects of certain treatments. Acupuncture will often be combined in the office with herbs, dietary changes and other supplements for a personalized and effective treatment plan.

What should I expect?


The principle of acupuncture is to treat each person as an integrated whole in body, mind, and spirit, and to work to heal the root cause of illness and  disease as well as the symptoms. Different acupuncture points are selected  according to an in-depth assessment at the time of your appointment.   Location of points and the number of acupuncture points used varies each treatment. Diagnosis is done by observation of the pulse, tongue and information presented by the client.  Listening to the pulses on both wrists, allows the practitioner access to gauge the health of the different meridians and organ systems. On the first appointment, a detailed health history  will be taken by the acupuncturist.   Physical  Diagnostic Testing,  composed of pressing into specific places in the  abdomen, checking  meridian flow bilaterally, feeling temperatures on the body, and blood  pressure check, are assessed to give the practitioner the best overall picture of health.

***Please refrain from using caffeine, intoxicants, heavy makeup and perfume prior to a treatment as to not interfere in the diagnostic assessment.

Initial Consultations range from 1  1/2 hours to 2 hours in length.
All subsequent treatments are usually about 1 hour in length.

Cash, Checks and Credit Cards accepted forms of Payment.
***All scheduled appointments must be canceled 24 hours in advance of  appointment time to avoid being charged in full for the missed  appointment.
