Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine 

We specialize in achieving natural, healthy relief from pain and discomfort by using a variety of traditional Chinese medical (TCM) techniques, primarily acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. According to traditional Chinese medicine, physical problems result from blockages in the flow of energy or "Qi" in the body. We use specialized techniques to release these blockages, helping eliminate the causes of pain and discomfort. 

The goal of acupuncture is to coax the body into healing itself by adjusting the flow of energy 
systemically and allowing the body to find its balance. The benefit of this is that there are little to no side effects after the treatments.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be extremely valuable in treating acute and chronic conditions. Acupuncture addresses the person as a whole interconnected system, encompassing the physical and emotional aspects of how the issue is presenting. 

Acupuncture can alleviate the disorder within several treatments if it is an acute issue, where as in chronic cases it can take months of treatment. It will depend upon the severity and length of time the problem has been present, each individual case is unique. Generally, the goal of treatment is to reach a point where the length of time between treatments is longer and longer, aiming towards an as needed basis as the body stabilizes. It is important to remember acupuncture and Chinese herbs are cumulative types of treatment, each treatment building upon the last. Therefore, in the beginning it is necessary to schedule treatments closely together.
