  • How acupuncture works

    The purpose of acupuncture is to improve the body’s functions and promote the natural self-healing process. Acupuncture stimulates certain anatomic sites, otherwise known as acupuncture points. The most popular way to achieve this is by inserting fine, sterile needles into the skin. It’s an eastern method used to treat many health problems, including stress and anxiety, muscular pain, headaches, fertility issues, lower back pain, hypertension, among other things. It’s a holistic health strategy that’s been embraced by the western world, and for good reason. The Chinese have developed acupuncture over thousands of years for the treatment and prevention of disease.

  • Treat disease, with Chinese medicine

    Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and western medicine differ dramatically. TCM looks as you as a whole person and the underlying cause of your symptoms, instead of just looking at the symptom alone. There’s no Band-Aid treatment, but rather a long-term solution. We believe disease doesn’t just happen, but something we create. Chinese medicine looks inwards.
