Health is all about balance. Acupuncture works to restore your body’s balance. The ancient medical system, acupuncture, is based on the belief that universal life energy or chi is present in all living beings. The chi circulates through the body along distance pathways known as meridians. It is through these conduits the tissues of the body receive their nourishment and chi. As long as all of the meridians are not impeded and chi is circulating a state of homeostasis or health exists. If the flow becomes obstructed or disrupted along one or several of the meridians and is not able to reach and nourish the tissues and organs of the body, disease will be the result. This disruption can be caused by trauma, a virus/bacteria or other disease process. Acupuncture is a medical system utilized in many countries as the primary form of health care. The advent of acupuncture dates back about 3,000 years. Its efficacy has been proven. There is a tremendous amount of research supporting acupuncture and its effectiveness, low risk, minimal side effects and reproducibility. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as an effective treatment for the following conditions:

  • Headaches/neck pain
  • Sinusitis
  • Asthma
  • Upper respiratory infections/bronchitis
  • Insomnia
  • Gastritis/IBS
  • Sciatica/low back pain
  • Fertility issues
  • Hormonal/menopause
  • Anxiety/depression
  • Ear infections/tinnitus
  • Weight loss

How does acupuncture work?

Certain points along the meridians are chosen depending on the disease and stimulated by inserting a needle into the point. Depending on the health issue, each session will use 20-40 needles. The number of sessions needed to achieve the desired effect will vary. All needles used are disposable and approved by the FDA.

Why are we unique?

Our facility utilizes the latest contemporary acupuncture diagnostic software. Electro-Meridian Imaging or EMI is a computerized method of evaluating the individual meridians. This exam is quick, painless and very useful in determining which meridians need to be addressed. When used in conjunction with an examination and thorough history, EMI is a very valuable tool in helping you get the results you want in a short amount of time.
