Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. This process stimulates the movement of energy within the body, allowing natural healing to take place.

Traditional Chinese Medical practitioners use a holistic and functional approach to health care. This means assessing the patient’s overall condition, which includes mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness. The human body functions best when certain conditions are met in its external and internal environments. By using Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques that include acupuncture, cupping, herbal therapy, Tui Na, food therapy, and lifestyle changes, balance can be restored for optimum health and wellbeing.

Acupuncture helps to prevent illness and decrease pain, supplementing the immune and organ systems to improve the overall functioning of the body. When the needles are inserted at specific points, they send signals to the brain to help start the body’s natural healing process. Acupuncture has been practiced for thousands of years in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and has been used for countless ailments, including chronic pain, musculoskeletal, digestive, neurological, hormonal, gynecological, stress, anxiety, asthma, allergies, TMJ, fibromyalgia, to name a few.

Other related TCM treatments include:

  • Auricular (Ear) Acupuncture

  • Cupping (a non-needle treatment)
  • Tui Na Therapy (a non-needle treatment)

These methods collectively aim to restore balance and improve overall well-being, demonstrating the comprehensive nature of TCM in health care.
