The first question often asked by people unfamiliar with Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture is "What can it help?" - The answer is "Nearly every condition."
We offer treatments for a wide variety of physical, mental, and emotional ailments. Be it a terminal disease or a minor headache, Traditional Chinese Medicine has developed therapies and strategies to aid in the treatment. It also can be utilized harmoniously with Western treatments, or as an occasional substitute for those concerned with the side effects of pharmaceuticals.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:
Acupuncture treatments may also feature additional therapies, as prescribed for your condition.
Modalities used include:
While you will likely experience some effect with your very first treatment, most simple or acute onset problems will take about 5 treatments to ensure more lasting effects. I commonly recommend 5-10 treatments for most clients. More complex problems or chronic diseases may need 12-15+ treatments.
The number and frequency of treatments will be discussed during the New Patient visit and varies from person to person.

Chinese herbal medicine is a 2,000 year old tradition using naturally occurring substances — including herbs — to enhance one's health and vitality. As opposed to Western medicine, the foundation of this approach is to support the body's natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities.
Since each patient has different needs, I carefully select and combine a variety of herbs that will synergistically blend together to achieve optimal results for your unique situation. I prescribe high-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines that are available only to qualified licensed professionals.
*Note: Cost of herbs are separate and will be in addition to your visit.

Tui Na is an ancient form of bodywork that is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I use a variety of pressures and strokes along the meridians (energy pathways) of your body to both relax your muscles and also stimulate the flow of energy throughout your body. By treating both the physical (musculature) and energetic (Qi) levels of your body at the same time, I can achieve results far beyond what you’d receive from a conventional massage therapy session.
