Acupuncture is a dominant form of Chinese Medicine, and it has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. It is a noninvasive medical practice which has helped millions of people diagnose conditions, get well, and stay healthy.

Acupuncture has been employed as a health care procedure for over 3,000 years. Practitioners of this ancient medical practice have experienced clinical success with a variety of health issues. Today, acupuncture is acquiring world wide acceptance as a valid, respected and very effective form of health care.

An acupuncturist will insert and manipulate (via heat or electricy) fine, sterile needles at specific points (acupoints) on the body. This technique will activate the body’s Qi (internal vital energy) and promote natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity, physical and emotional well being.

When most people think about acupuncture, they are informed with its use for pain control. However, acupuncture has proven a track record of treating and addressing a variety of circulatory, endocrine and systemic conditions. Love how Acupuncture / Chinese Medicine can help patient with subclinical condition, functional disorder, when western medicine couldn’t find any diagnosis, no abnormal findings from laboratory or imaging.
