Some frequently asked questions and answers to help you better understand the benefits of acupuncture and Chinese Herbs.

Acupuncture is a primary health care method that has flourished in China for over 2,500 years and is now widely used throughout Asia, Europe, and North America.

Acupuncture is performed with the application of needles and pressure to specific ’points’ on the body.  These points are grouped along specific pathways that cross the body.  As long as the energy flows freely through these pathways, health is maintained.

When the flow of energy is either absent, deficient, interrupted, excessive or blocked in an area, health is disrupted, resulting in illness and pain.  By stimulating appropriate acupuncture points along these pathways, the energy is release and regulated, and health is restored.

Via this method, acupuncture helps strengthen your physical body, prevent disease, control pain, and achieve longevity.

Most patients find the treatment very relaxing, which brings on a feeling of well-being.  Most are surprised at how comfortable they are during the process and how easily the needles are placed.  Some people even go to sleep during treatment.  The tiny thin needles are specifically designed to be virtually painless.

Each person is unique with an individualized treatment plan.
