Acupuncturists diagnose and treat a wide variety of health conditions, uniformly basing diagnosis and treatment on a common set of principles and algorithms originating in ancient Chinese thought, informed by modern understandings of science and physiology. Acupuncture utilizes one of the most sophisticated systems biology-based frameworks known and consists of the insertion of thin needles at specific “points” or locations on the body.
Acupuncture stimulates the body’s intrinsic healing response and, over time, restores functional balance to the body’s systems.
Acupuncture is a cumulative approach and has the effect of improving circulation, strengthening the immune system, normalizing endocrine & reproductive function, and balancing the nervous system. Lasting physiological change is best achieved though a course of treatment specifically tailored to address your condition and symptoms. In addition to acupuncture, adjunct therapies may include moxibustion (herbal warming agent) & heat therapy, diet counseling, auricular acupuncture, tui na (massage), cupping, gua sha or Qi Gong exercises to provide you an integrated treatment plan that is highly personalized.
