"Surprisingly, the most effective new treatment in American medical care today was actually developed many thousands of years ago." - The Boston Globe

Traditional Chinese medicine has developed over a period of at least 3,000 years and includes acupuncture, herbology, massage and nutrition. It is a powerful and profound system of healing.

Chinese medicine views illness in terms of patterns of disharmony that are addressed and alleviated at their source. This is a holistic approach to healing that affects the individual on all levels of their being.

Acupuncture moves the body's energy. Energy is vital to all aspects of life and circulates throughout the body along specific pathways called meridians. When this energy flow is interrupted or weakened, imbalance occurs which can lead to disharmony and disease. Acupuncture works with our own healing force by directing and regulating the flow of this energy (called Qi) to restore balance. It disperses obstruction which then releases blood circulation and promotes healing while it stimulates the body's energy to strengthen the system where needed.

Treatment involves placing a few very fine needles into energy points generally located along meridians. Most people experience acupuncture as comfortable and extremely relaxing. Many patients fall asleep during treatment.

Acupuncture is effective for both acute and chronic conditions and is also a preventative medicine. It stimulates the immune system and the body's natural healing force without drugs, surgery, trauma or unpleasant side effects.
