Why Acupuncture?

Better Health Starts Here!

Acupuncture is a holistic medicine, it treats the whole body as an integrated system not separate pieces or isolated parts. Not only do we treat symptoms but we treat the root of the symptom to alleviate or minimize the cause.   The purpose of acupuncture and Chinese medicine is to achieve balance within the body, specifically the flow of “Qi” or “Life force”.  Pain and discomfort as well as symptoms such as anxiety (an example) are seen as imbalances within the system, correction of the imbalance is seen in improvement in health and other symptoms.

My goal is to help you achieve optimum health and wellness. Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. Acupuncture is used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness.
