We treat patients with ailments ranging from overwhelming stress and anxiety, women with health or infertility struggles, people with digestive problems, chronic pain sufferers and more.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine works through regulating your body’s energy flow, also known as Qi. In your body, the energy channels form a network of meridians, with openings that are interacting with your surroundings. If your energy flow becomes blocked or is depleted, the result is heightened stress, illness and bodily dysfunction.
As we diagnose your physical or emotional ailments, we look especially for the blockages in your energy flow. We then work to restore your Qi by removing blockages through acupuncture, and help you overcome pain and stress through herbal remedies, along with dietary and lifestyle advice.

CHINESE HERBAL MEDICINE
Chinese herbal medicine is one of the major clinical healing modalities in the ancient Chinese medical system. The ingredients of Chinese herbal remedies are not chosen based on their chemical components, but on the energy output of the whole ingredient. For example, a commonly used Chinese herb Huangqi (Astragalus) is somewhat sweet, mildly warming, and has an affinity for the lung, spleen, and kidney meridians.
In a typical cupping session, glass cups are warmed by burning a substance inside the cup to create a vacuum. A practitioner then places the cup upside-down over a specific area of the patient’s body. The vacuum anchors the cup to the skin and pulls it. Drawing up the skin helps to stimulate the flow of blood, balance the flow of energy, break up obstructions, and create a channel for toxins to be drawn out of the body.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mug wort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. It has been used in China for thousands of years.
