Acupuncture is one of the most ancient and effective healing modalities and has been used for well over 4,000 years to successfully treat a wide variety of conditions. The medicine is based on the theory that all of nature, including everything from the universe itself to the human body, exists in a balance between opposite yet complimentary forces. According to Chinese medical theory, energy in a healthy body flows smoothly through specific pathways, or meridians. When there is an energetic imbalance, insufficiency, or blockage in one or more of these pathways, symptoms of disease or disharmony develop.

The goal of acupuncture treatment is to re-establish a balanced flow of energy throughout the body. Treatment involves insertion of extremely fine needles at specific points on the body, to unblock and rebalance energy flow, allowing the body to return to its natural and harmonious state of health and well-being. Many patients find acupuncture treatments deeply relaxing, and others feel energized by treatments.

The unique power behind this type of medicine comes from its ability to treat an individual person and not a disease or a symptom. The treatment is based on resolving the underlying cause of the problem (the “root”), which not only rids the body of its symptoms (the “branches”) but also prevents those symptoms from returning. Treatments are specific to each individual, and address each person’s specific energetic disharmony.

Acupuncture stimulates the body’s own healing process naturally and without side effects. Though often patients initiate treatment because of specific ailments or disease, there doesn’t have to be a “problem” in order to benefit from acupuncture. This gentle yet powerful medicine optimizes health and vitality, supports the immune and digestive system, and prevents disease from occurring


Clinical trials have shown acupuncture's ability to affect a range of systems in the body including the nervous, cardiovascular, reproductive, endocrine, immune, detoxification, respiratory and digestive systems. In fact, there are over 20,000 peer reviewed journal publications listed on the National Institutes of Health's website.
