Acupuncture is a holistic medicine-- it sees symptoms in relationship to the entire body, and not in isolation.

Therefore, to alleviate the symptom, we treat the entire body, rather than focus solely on the symptom.


Acupuncture has been used for centuries as preventative medicine and to relieve acute conditions and chronic conditions that have no natural cure in western medicine, such as asthma, chronic pain, anxiety and depression.. This powerful medicine, with no side effects, can be your answer, but is not broadly accepted by the mainstream. First, because there are not enough studies on efficacy YET, though many studies being done now are supporting the good result acupuncture can deliver (See Conditions Helped) and second, because acupuncture is a threat to the established medical model. While none of us are used to paying for our health care out of pocket (few acupuncturists want to deal with the hassel of reimbursement by reluctant insurance companies)--here are a few good reasons to consider acupuncture:


-your health is worth the investment--health is one of life's greatest riches

-it's a holistic medicine that empowers the body to heal itself

-it addresses the root of the problem, not just the symptom

-it's gentle and relaxing to receive

-it's often more effective for chronic ailments than western medicine

-it's a natural healing method that supports that body, rather than the more invasive methods of drugs or surgery


-Proven to help with fertility issues

-it has an extremely low probability of side-effects

-it does no harm; can only help


The purpose behind all acupuncture therapy is the achievement of balance; specifically the balance of the flow of "Qi" in the body, loosely translated as the "life force."


Symptoms are seen as an imbalance in this flow, and the correction of the imbalance is reflected in good health.


The Qi flows in meridians (pathways) througout the body.

Each pathway runs on the skin surface and is accessible via acupuncture points, and also runs deeply into the body and connects to the internal organs. That's how we affect the inside of the body, using only points on the surface of the skin. So essentially, the pathway brings the effects of the treatment at the superficial (skin level) of the body into the deeper level of the organs.


There are more than 361 acupuncture points (only about 10-15 are used per treatment) known to influence body function.


Over 2500 years old, this time-tested method of preventative care and addressing acute and chronic problems speaks for itself by alleviating conditions normally addressed by drugs or surgery in Western medicine.
