Healing without Harmful Side Effects
Acupuncture uses tiny needles to awaken different points in your body, stimulating it to produce natural steroids and release endorphins. Your natural steroids decrease inflammation, while endorphins inhibit pain. All this is natural and without side effects, unlike pharmaceuticals. Not only does acupuncture reduce pain, but it also facilitates genuine healing at the site of the trauma.
We employ auricular acupuncture, classical five-element acupuncture, five elements theory acupuncture, trigger-point acupuncture, electroacupuncture, facial acupuncture and acupressure.

Auricular acupuncture is applying acupuncture to your ears only. Limiting acupuncture to your ears feels more comfortable to some of our patients, and it’s just as effective as other forms.
Classical five-element acupuncture
Part of traditional Chinese medicine since its beginning. According to this system, everything in the natural world, including your body, is made up of a combination of wood, fire, earth, metal and water. For proper health and balanced chi, you must keep these elements in balance.
Five elements theory acupuncture
This subset of classical five-elements acupuncture considers your body type and constitution, with a focus on hand therapy.
Muscular therapy to treat pain. Trigger points refer to specific areas in your muscles where you feel stabbing pain, weakness, tingling or aching pain. Pain from trigger points can be localized or can affect your entire muscle. Trigger point therapy helps you relieve your current pain and prevent future pain.
Acupuncture that uses electrical currents to stimulate acupuncture points and restore healing to your body.
Facial acupuncture—a safe alternative to cosmetic surgery--is a non-surgical, non-toxic, holistic procedure that reduces wrinkle lines, improves skin tone and leads to a healthier, more youthful appearance. No incisions, no sutures, no lasers and no chemical peels.
Acupressure stimulates points along your meridians, or pathways of chi, to alleviate your symptoms, increase your vitality and clear blockages of chi in your body.
