Safe and effective solutions for pain and Illness
Chinese medicine is a complete medical system dating back 5,000 years. Chinese medicine uses a thorough and unique diagnostic process to determine patterns of imbalance in your body. These imbalances are then corrected with acupuncture, herbs, massage, and other modalities to facilitate your body’s ability to heal itself.

Acupuncture is the gentle insertion of hair-thin, sterile needles at strategic points on the body. The needles stimulate the nervous, circulatory, and endocrine systems to produce wide-ranging beneficial effects, including pain relief, reducing inflammation, improving circulation, better immune function, releasing endorphins, reducing stress, and balancing hormones.

Based on research conducted in controlled clinical trials, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) identify acupuncture as effective for treating a wide variety of pain and illness. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are able to successfully treat multiple health conditions simultaneously.
