Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing traditions in the world and is utilized beneficially in the treatment of many health concerns and in the promotion of health and well being. The Chinese have long studied the movement of vital force (qi) through the body and have developed a system of medicine that reduces symptoms while addressing root causes.

The flow of qi throughout the body can be interrupted when there is pain, stress and emotional duress. It can become obstructed and weak causing mild to severe symptoms. Acupuncture has been a subject of study by conventional medical researchers as well as the National Institute of Health presenting as a legitimate and beneficial treatment in various types of conditions.

Acupuncture treatment is utilized as part of a comprehensive program to reduce and eliminate symptoms while improving your health. The road to health begins with a comprehensive intake, review of your health concerns and goals, and acupuncture treatment. Further development of an individualized plan can include diet, herbs and exercise.

Acupuncture has been found effective in a variety of pain disorders and health issues such as – back, neck and knee pain, painful cramps during menses, headaches (migraine and tension), digestive disorders, hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, depression, and fatigue.

The insertion of fine sterile needles along acupuncture meridians support the easy flow of vitality that circulates within the body. The treatment is relaxing and revitalizing.
