Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world.  Acupuncture is a technique for relieving pain and for improving the function of organ systems by stimulating acupuncture points on the surface of the body. Acupuncture is best used through an integrative approach, in combination with, and held to the same standards as western medicine.

Therefore, we combine acupuncture therapy with Western medical therapies.  As a result, the complementary treatments are more effective and lead to healthier, happier lives.  

Medical acupuncture can be especially useful in the treatment of a number of conditions including musculoskeletal/neurologic conditions like arthritis or disc disease, chronic skin wounds, chronic gastrointestinal or urinary tract disorders, respiratory disorders, and ocular diseases like dry eye.

What physiological effects are induced by Acupuncture?
Numerous studies show that acupuncture stimulation induces these physiological effects:

  • Pain relief
  • Regulation of gastrointestinal motility
  • Anti-Inflammatory effect
  • Immuno- regulation
  • Hormone and reproductive regulation
  • Anti-febrile effect; microcirculation promotion

As you can see, we love what we do and we do what we love.
