This ancient Chinese healing art has helped literally billions of people. The essentially painless technique employs the insertion of fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific points on the body to manipulate the flow of energy – thereby restoring the balance, removing blockages and generating energy where necessary. Acupuncture points, which lie on energy channels, are directly related to specific organs and physiological functions. This principle has been repeatedly confirmed by recent research in which obvious physiological changes were observed through the manipulation of specific acupuncture points.

As more Americans are discovering that Western medicine alone does not always work, they are turning to acupuncture as a natural way to heal without the side effects of many drugs and chemicals prescribed by Western medical practitioners.

Acupuncture has been widely used for anesthesia and is growing in use not only to treat and cure, but also to maintain good health. It has been proven effective in both children and adults – treating a broad range of disorders including but not limited to asthma, arthritis, palsy, impotence, sciatica, chronic or acute back and neck pain, headaches, ulcers diabetes, colitis, gastrointestinal problems, genito-urinary conditions, cancer and the common cold. Acupuncture is also capable of inducing deep relaxation, and has been found to be an extremely useful modality for prevention of illness, as well as for treatment of disease.

Acupuncture sessions usually last from 45 minutes to one hour and often include wholistic nutrition, vitamin, supplement, herbal and exercise recommendations. Patients wear a gown or loose clothing and are treated on a comfortable massage table.
