What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a Chinese healing modality that stimulates specific points in the body.   It is generally painless and has been shown to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions. Herbal medicine is often combined with Acupuncture treatments for optimal results.

Treatment with Chinese Medicine works well for acute as well as chronic conditions. In Acute cases of Colds, flu or Urinary Tract Infections, for example, the condition will be resolved within a few days.  Many Patients receive regular treatments, usually once every two weeks, to help manage chronic conditions.   Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine works very well in conditions which require immune system regulation and balancing.   Chronic pain, fatigue, autoimmune conditions and depression/anxiety benefit greatly from the systemic balancing effect created by Chinese Medical care.
