"Being ONE with People and Nature"

We treat patients with Acupuncture, Tuina, Chinese herbs and warm heart.

Acupuncture results in the body producing natural substances, such as pain-relieving endorphins. These naturally released substances are responsible for the beneficial effects experienced with acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese acupuncture is based on the belief that an energy, or "life force", flows through the body in channels called meridians. This life force is known as Qi (pronounced "chee").

When Qi doesn't flow freely through the body, this can cause illness. Acupuncture can restore the flow of Qi, and so restore health.

Why choose Acupuncture?

  1. It works! Hundreds of clinical studies on the benefits of acupuncture show that it successfully treats conditions ranging from musculoskeletal problems (back pain, neck pain, and others) to nausea, migraine headache, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and infertility.
  2. According to WHO (World Health Organization) acupuncture is effective for treating 28 conditions, while evidence indicates it may have an effective therapeutic value for many more.
  3. People with tension headaches and/or migraines can find acupuncture to be very effective in alleviating their symptoms.
  4. There are very few side effects. Acupuncture is safely used all around the world.
  5. It can be considered for patients who do not respond to pain medications.
  6. It is a useful alternative for patients who do not want to take pain medications.
  7. Using acupuncture before and during surgery significantly reduces the level of pain and the amount of potent painkillers needed by patients after the surgery is over.
  8. Drug Free, Acupuncture works with your body to heal itself
