A traditional Chinese art and science to balance body and mind.
Acupuncture is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of Chinese Medicine have used this ancient system to help millions of people become well and stay well. With a focus on preventative care, Acupuncturists will help you fix small problems before they worsen and become chronic.
Acupuncturists approach the body in a holistic way, focusing not just on your chief complaint, but on every aspect of your health.
By puncturing specific points on the body with thin filiform needles, Acupuncturists are able to signal the body's own innate healing response leading to regulation of the nervous and endocrine systems, decreased pain and inflammation, as well as improved circulation and immune response.
Apart from Acupuncture needles, Acupuncturists also incorporate other modalities such as cupping, gua sha ("scraping therapy"), electroacupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine, and Chinese Tuina massage techniques. Lifestyle advice is also a focal point of medicine
