Help your body heal

Promote your vital force

Acupuncture is an Ancient Medical Art – the Acupuncture needle acting as the brush

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging your body to promote your vital force; your body’s innate desire to heal. Healing is promoted by improving overall function of the internal organs, circulatory, endocrine, and nervous systems.  Your body seeks to balance the functioning body systems to stabilize your physical body, your body’s functions, and your emotions.   Acupuncture aids your body by inserting thin needles to act as antenae to balance your body’s flow of energy; applying heat or cups at very precise acupuncture points to create suction and release through the skin, freeing your body’s energy to flow unrestricted.

Modern science translates needling the acupuncture points stimulates your nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will  change the experience of pain, and trigger the release of chemicals and hormones influencing your body’s internal regulating system.

Improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating your body’s innate healing abilities, further promoting physical and emotional well-being.


Acupuncture can help treat the following symptoms and more.


Head and neck pain







The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like river systems flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is a dam that backs up in others.​​

Obstructions may be due to scars, trauma, or long held patterns. 

They may be tangible and visible, like knots or cysts, or they may be intangible or hidden, like emotions and internal diseases. 

Meridians are influenced by needling acupuncture points, unblocking the obstructions to reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments will thereby help your vital force to correct imbalances in circulation of energy through the meridians, aiding in digestion, absorption, and energy production functions.
