Chinese medicine is an ancient healing system. Practitioners of this medicine have long known that blockages in the body are responsible for illness and disease. Acupuncture is used to eliminate those blockages, thereby restoring a person back to health. Acupuncture can also strengthen and nourish weakness and deficiency.

In acupuncture, extremely thin needles are inserted into the body at specific locations called acupuncture points. We use stainless steel, pre-sterilized, one-time use only disposable needles. The stimulation of these points helps to restore a sufficient and even flow of Qi (pronounced “Chee”), which means energy or vital force. This improves circulation and triggers the body's natural healing response. Acupuncture helps to strengthen the immune system, increase endorphins (the body’s natural pain killers), increase Serotonin (a mood-calming neurotransmitter), regulate hormones, unblock stagnation, decrease inflammation, and balance and tune the body and mind. It can treat just about any condition, either directly or indirectly.

My needling technique is very gentle and pain-free. Many patients don’t even feel the needles going in or being removed. Most people thoroughly enjoy the experience that ensues, drifting into a deep relaxation or falling asleep.

The number of acupuncture treatments needed depends on the particular condition you have, how long you’ve had it, how severe it is, and how your particular system responds to treatment. The key to experiencing the greatness of acupuncture is simply to get started.
