Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is an ancient healing modality that balances the body's Qi, our vital life force, body/mind/spirit. NIH reported findings in 1997 that said that Acupuncture is a safe, effective method to reduce or eliminate pain. Since that time, additional studies have been conducted by other respected institutions to track the amazing results of acupuncture treatments. Today Acupuncture is used to treat a wide range of illnesses and conditions including stress, pain, allergies, skin conditions, back pain, migraines, digestive, women's issues, chemotherapy side effects and cancer-related conditions.

Philosophy

Acupuncture calls the body to a state of balance, regardless of the symptom or illness. When our Qi energy, our vital life force, is in a state of harmony, we are health--at ease. When our bodies are out of balance, we are vulnerable--in a state of disease. I work with patients to support them in achieving their own, natural and essential healing through acupuncture on a body/mind/spirit level. Our bodies are prone to healing.
